Relaxing weekend in Dorchester
We had a 2-night stay there recently. We have been coming to Dorchester for years for short breaks as it is a good base for exploring Dorset, including access to walks in the countryside or along the coast. This hotel is our favourite as it offers a good standard of accommodation at a reasonable price. Also, as it has a central location, there are several good restaurants within easy walking distance.

disappointing hotel
good location in Dorchester and well decorated hotel. Other that that I was not impressed. Small car park so couldn't get a space, couldn't gain entry for several minutes on arrival, check in took about 15 minutes, room configuration was poor, bed was a bit hard, breakfast choice was poor and I had to sit on my own at a dirty table, they charged me twice for my room and had to give me a refund. Wont be coming back!

Despicable Chef
I was appalled by the inconsiderate and disrespectful behaviour coupled with a lack of sensibility by the hotel chef. I had ordered "Eggs Royale" which is obviously eggs and salmon in a muffin. The kitchen had sent out "Eggs Benedict" which has Bacon rather than Salmon. Clearly, I can appreciate errors in the order. The waitress was very good and apologised for the incorrect order and said that she would ask the Chef to prepare the eggs plus salmon. I SPECIFICALLY explained that I do not eat Pork and that this fried pork meat had obviously been touching the eggs and muffin. Therefore bases on my religious position, the "chef should NOT simply remove the Bacon and replace it with Salmon. Unfortunately, thus is what he did, and was found out (fortunately) as he had left some of the Bacon in the bun. Please refer to the attached photograph. It is disgraceful that the hotel chef shows a blatant disregard for hotels guests with different beliefs and cultures by failing to respect differences. I had raised this with the General Manager who was shown the plate of food. I cannot understand why the General Manager would allow this kind of practice at the hotel...
