I am not sure I disliked anything really; if pushed to give a totally unbiased viewpoint, I suppose I would have to say the bathroom has a very low level modern style bath which feels at odds with the antique style ambience of the main room, personally I would have liked to have seen a larger, more romantic perhaps, much deeper maybe victorian style bath and a couple of much, much bigger towels but that's aesthetics.
The bathroom is utterly fine in reality, bath and fittings perfectly fit for purpose, there are the ubiquitous toiletries and really,this is me being totally pedantic.
There really is nothing that warrants any negative comment.
Stayed in the four poster room...
which was large, spacious and comfortable. The room not only had the obvious four poster tester style bed but also a small table flanked by two sitting room chairs opposite a large comfy couch which allowed one to lounge without having to use the bed. The room also ample storage provided by an armoire and drawers etc.
The host Mark is utterly charming and more importantly extremely helpful; a perfect host.
The hotel is perfectly positioned for a trip to Dorchester or the surrounding area.
People in previous reviews have pointed out that it is on main junction and it is but I actually had no issues with noise despite coming from a house where there is almost total silence at night. The bed is big and luxuriousy appointed and by the time I sank into the mountain of pillows, I slept like a log, it was wonderful.
The price of the room was not unreasonable I thought, not in comparison to many others I have stayed at and I was quite happy with it.
The room was lovely, the host was lovely and I had a wonderfully lovely overnight sojourn at The Beggars Knap and if the proof of the pudding is in the eating and I was asked if I would stay there again?...
the answer would be and is yes... looking forward to next time!
