It had all I wanted for a two night stay, Clean; comfortable; friendly and helpful staff and a great breakfast
Good location, quaint hotel, friendly owner.
Breakfast finishes at 9am on weekday. Shower temperature control didn't work, so shower too hot
Breakfast was excellent and the hotel is right in the centre of Dorchester.
Room wasn't really good value for money, it was comfortable enough but not exactly huge. The shower head would not stay in place so had to be used as a hand held spray.
Location, Lovely clean room Room was a good size Bed very comfortable Friendly helpful staff Great breakfast
Traffic noise Rather idiosyncratic window locks
Comfortable beds Excellent breakfast Decor Location
Very limited parking
Position was good for Town Breakfast room pleasant
Room was too hot,no air conditioning No proper shower, just a poor hand shower which had no pressure Noisy front room, slept badly
Nice rooms and comfy siting rooms
Only 3 parking spaces, I got one but only because I arrived quite early.
Friendly Flexible Helpful Comfortable Clean Delicious, non-greasy, breakfast. Quick Check-out Excellent WIFI. The owners definitely went the extra mile and accommodated my husband despite me originally booking a single room. It was a great place to stay and we would return in a heart-beat.
Best breakfasts in Dorchester
- wonderful breakfast (Cheerful and helpful waitresses) - good attention to details in the bedroom - very good dinner with master chef winner Matt
- shower not powerful
Pleasant and friendly atmosphere. The owners and staff couldn't have been more obliging. They also gave us excellent recommendations for eating out. Good, individually cooked breakfasts. Rooms at back of hotel very quiet.
Very nice staff and hotel. lots of lovely antique furniture.
Our room was very hot. We had a fan going all night, but it really was too hot to sleep. No on site parking, but as it was the weekend we were ok until 8 am on Monday morning as Sunday was unlimited.
Excellent furnishings and decor,very friendly staff, good breakfast.
We had rooms on the front,and the road outside was very heavy with traffic all the time.As it was very hot, we had to have the windows open.
Good selection at breakfast; patio eating area; room overlooking garden; bath to soak in after walking; friendly staff. Close to a variety of restaurants for dinner.
Noise from kitchen below room; rationing of toast.
Very pleasant, spacious rooms. Very clean. Breakfast served in delightful conservatory area and excellent selection. Very nice small hotel and a good base for exploring the area. Most of the staff very friendly.
Parking a bit of a problem. Very limited and not on site. Male proprietor quite grumpy - latter day Basil Fawtly!
Much better than chain hotels. More personalised and comfortable, especially the sitting room. A perfect place to rest and read after a hard day's holidaying.
Nothing - it was all good
