    Everyone was so friendly and nothing was too much for them

  • Older travelers

    Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Chose room upgrade worth the extra cost.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    It was convienient and that is about all. There is nothing more that I can say in praise, except the staff were very polite and helpful. The room rate was very good.

    The car parking was inadequate and a very cramped parking area. the beds in our twin room were very uncomfortable. The food was ok but overpriced. We were the only group who used the resturant that night.

    We had booked a standard room and got a suite! Very pleased.

    All as expected for the price paid.

    Location right in town centre with parking

    Beds could have been more comfortable

    Good size room and excellent location. very staff and also good breakfast in the morning

    The room was very cold, particularly the bathroom which affected comfort and sleep

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The helpfulness and warmth of our greeting by the staff on arrival.

    The food in the restaurant was disappointing with the main course having to be sent back and in any event the presentation was rather 'agricultural'.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The location. Being so central to the town made visits to the shops and attractions very easy with only short walks required. The complimentary newspaper was also very welcome.

    The lack of a lift which I understand is due to the hotel being a Grade 2 listed building. I have back problems (due to cancer) and being on the second floor made life difficult - although the staff did offer a move to the first floor for day 2 onwards. However I did not fancy the upheaval.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Friendly staff and good choice of food. Hotel in convenient city cente location

  • Older travelers

    Relax atmosphre.Good quality breakfast.

  • Single
    10.0

    the staff were very friendly, couldn't be more helpful. Food was very good and the room was very comfortable. Great location in centre of the old market town of Dorchester.

    Nothing, it is a lovely little hotel.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Friendly staff, although the furnishings are outdated.

    The toilet seat was broken, however I did advise the reception staff who advised me that he would arrange to have it fixed.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The location was excellent, staff were helpful and polite- made a nice change to be showsn to our room. The room was very clean and faced out to the back of the hotel so no road noise. Breakfast was fairly standard.

    Although clean the room was rather dated and the textiles cheap looking. when some one in a room near to ours had a shower- we knew about it! It sounded like a monsoon in the walls! Floors creaky, didnt mind the uneveness- it gave character. If the hotel was not in such a central location then £99 per night would definatly be overpriced.
