Awesome clean and comfortable hotel!
This was a last minute booking on the actual day of arrival as my girlfriend and I decided to stay in Dorchester. The staff could not have been more polite or helpful. Awesome hotel, great staff and carry clean and very comfortable all just a short distance away from Dorchester town center.

Nice but a few pain points
Staff are good but the service let’s itself down in the evenings as very few staff around covering the bar who are trained. Room was comfortable but soap and shampoo was not replenished which was frustrating - but it is great value

OK but could be better
Decent hotel and rooms small but good. Car park is inadequate as only has a few spaces and I would have liked to know this before booking. Dinner was OK but service was really slow and we ended up walking out without dessert due to no staff around.

Very central location, very helpful staff, clean and comfortable. It is an old building, so it can be noisy.

Bank holiday weekend in Dorchester
An OK stay. I've stayed at this hotel many times before and always liked it. it's a great location and the staff are very friendly, pleasant and helpful. However this time there were many little things which were wrong - faulty kettle which they replaced with another kettle without a lead, remote control didn't work, no milk in the room tea/coffee supplies, room was very hot - which all left me feeling it wasn't really what I expect for the money it cost. Unfortunate, but hopefully just a glitch.
