Disappointing
This was our third stay at the Wessex, but sadly disappointing this time. We were greeted by the receptionist who read the riot act about parking, (the car park had 2 spaces that were free, but cars parked in from of them left them inaccessable). Were shown to our room which was located in the courtyard (the car park). Room was noisy due to it's location, wifi was practically non existent. The main doorway to our room was blocked by cars the whole time of our stay, leaving us left to squeeze past multiple vehicles to access our room. Three trips to the bar to get drinks lead to lengthy waits to be served, due to a lack of staff in the hotel. Breakfast ok, on whole a disappointing stay this time, not worth £109 a night - doubtful if I'd stay here on my next trip to Dorchester.

Nice hotel, ideally located.
A grand hotel on the high street with large bedrooms & lovely bathrooms. A few pubs are located just a short walk away. Only fault was that the hotel car park (round the back) as a height restriction so anything larger than a car as to park on the high st and only 1 hr allowed. Pay and display car park is a 5-10 min walk away.
