A 25-minute drive from Dorchester and Blandford Forum, The Fox Inn is a pretty inn in the Dorset countryside. There is free parking and Wi-Fi, and full English breakfast served in the garden room.

Great location, quiet rooms, good breakfast, very friendly staff.
Double bed too bouncy. One person moves and the other person bounces about.
Know what you get Convenience
Charging for WiFi - did not use it as a result
Modern hotel, really friendly, proud and helpful staff
Pleasant stay and nice restuarants close by
not enough car parking spaces
First class meal deal.lovely food.
Duvet too heavy. Draft from air con difficult to control or dial small to read well.
The comfort (as advertised) of quietly tasteful rooms, not fancy, but clean and modern minimalism. Pleasant and even charming staff, making one feel attended to with professional and unobtrusive pleasantness. Manager was superlative, including but not restricted to dealing with a restaurant matter. Should I travel to Dorchester again, I will most certainly book here.
Nitpicking only here: the signage in the elevator indicating the button to press for the restaurant was mislabelled G instead of UG, and it's only important for someone with bad knees where stairs are a difficulty. Very very minor point. Restaurant: Very long waiting times for meal service, esp. considering the low number of guests. Some aspects of my meal were very poorly done (not nitpicking here) but manager dealt with quickly and pleasantly.
Spacious, clean room. Exceptional staff.
Unfortunately heating set extremely high, resulting in uncomfortable nights sleep.
Very large airy room with queen size bed and quality bathroom fittings that worked well. Very friendly and helpful receptionist who checked us in quickly after midnight.
The pillows were a bit uncomfortable.
Big room Comfy bed Room for travel cot Good location
The staff were very efficient and friendly. Nicely decordated. Deep bath. Good bedding.
bed was far too hard. No comfy chairs to sit on. Would have liked a couple of chairs and a table.
Its all very good hospitality.
They should not charge for WiFi after a half hour.
The room was comfortable bed comfortable in general every thing was awesome
Comfortable room Tasty breakfast Good central location Staff very helpful
No mobile phone signal in hotel, no telephone in room to dial out. I had to borrow the phone at reception to call home to say I had arrived. Paid for Wifi but the connection was poor.
Location .. for Dorchester Town Center, cinema, dining choicesand easy access to both rail stations, this location has it all. Buffer breakfast best value in the area. ATM around the corner as is convenience store. Definitely on my list of places to stay.
Nothing not to like.
Staff friendliness Cleanliness Location
Had to pay for wifi
The staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and well presented. A real credit to the company.
I'm afraid most of the cooked breakfast buffet items we had were cold.
the location is excellent... but see the downside!
The main problems relate to access to the hotel. There are no clear signs on arrival (by car) in the station area and the entrance is around the corner from where you might expect. There is very limited parking (drop off only) in front of the hotel. The main car park is a five minute walk away, and is a pay and display nightmare ...and the overnight ticket expires at 7.30 am! Surely the hotel management could find a better arrangement? In our opinion, the hotel is definitely NOT customer friendly at present and we will look elsewhere in the future.
Well staffed! Clean! Friendly!
Restricted parking space
guaranteed quality, tasty breakfast, good location
lack of parking
Location was great in the town and for the area and will be even better when the surrounding project is completed. Breakfast was great and reasonable. Free children's breakfast is excellent and makes families feel very welcome. Staff were v nice indeed.
No free wifi!
Location was excellent. Rooms good size and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. I was offered parking below the property but paid for a nearby car park prior to booking in. Liked the idea of receiving an email prior to arrival which gave good information.
Still part of a building site, but that will eventually change.
Excellent location with friendly, helpful staff. Having recently undergone knee surgery I asked for a disabled bathroom and we were given a huge corner room with many grab handles which were a great help. Thank you.
Staff were all very helpful. Hotel very clean and food and service was excellent.
Hardly any parking available at the hotel. Had to go to a local carpark to leave the car. New construction site opposite the hotel, so the hotel is a little difficult to find.
Front of house staff member was excellent, reserved me a space in the car park and made sure I was served in the restaurant as I arrived a bit late. Could not fault any aspect. Premier Inn have got this so right. Full marks to all the staff and to the management who clearly know how to get the best from them.
Good position. Very good food
Workmen and guests with suitcases using the dining room as a thoroughfare. This spoiled the dining experience
