We had a wonderful stay at the Casterbridge. We stayed there on our wedding night and the staff were fantastic leaving lovely chocolates for us. The breakfast was fantastic. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
A good choice selection for breakfast.
Central location. Good breakfast.
Owner friendly and directed us to where we could park our car. Loved the meal cooked by Mat Follas in the evening
Sadly the room (room 7) was not up to scratch. The owner advised us on arrival that the heating was not working in the bathroom so he had put a fan heater in there. In addition the toilet would not flush until my husband mended it and the loo roll holder was not fixed to the wall properly. The final straw was the shower - or rather the lack of it !! I was not expecting a power shower but I also was not expecting the dripping tap effect which was all the water that this shower produced !!
Shower it wes a joke a trickle of Luke warm water in a very very cold bathroom
This is a good B&B destination. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the room was comfortable, and the hostelry is within walking distance of most places of interest in Dorchester. Parking is restricted, but we were lucky to get a space on all 3 days. Other parking may involve a bit of a walk. Breakfast first rate.
Well appointed guest house with excellent decor. Comfortable bed and good size en suite. Very pleasant and accommodating staff. Good choice of breakfast menu. Good choice of drinks on bedroom tray
Need to book 1st floor if unfit or elderly as difficult to carry suitcases to top. Could be difficult for parking nearby.
The bedroom was lovely. Four poster bed and so comfortable. Brekfast lovely. The dinner smelt good that night but we were off to a concert to couldn't book for that evening.
The shower control didn't work so we had constant hot water so couldn't use the shower. This is a shame and probably only just happened as the rest of our stay was lovely.
The staff were friendly, the room was comfortable, breakfast was good. Great for female solo travellers
Good location and very welcoming atmosphere Great breakfast Thanks
Well managed by considerate people. Good breakfast. Comfortable room. Excellent restaurant Friday and Saturday. Good value for money.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Building could use a bit of a spruce up. Paint was peeling on the window frames. On the plus side everything was spotlessly clean.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good hearty breakfast and good choice available.
Road a bit noisy but slept ok. There are rooms away from the road and I would book one of those if you are used to no traffic noise. Parking availability limited to 3 spaces on a first come first served basis.
Helpful staff and good breakfast. Comfortable bed.
Windows wouldn't open in the room
I asked for a particular type of bed and a quiet room and it was provided exactly as requested. Very friendly and helpful staff.
That I was not staying longer!
The staff were very friendly and helpful
The location is a grotty street surrounded by grotty buildings. The photo suggests a much nicer area, but the Casterbridge itself is very attractive, but you can't see what it is adjacent too. In our room (9) it is not possible to open the window, so there is no ventilation at all. Parking overnight has to be be in a back street long stay car park 100 yards away.
A warm welcome and very helpful looking after our bikes. Breakfast was good quality and plentiful.
The bed divinely comfortable.Breakfast great with a large selection. Loved the mini milk bottles and marmalade in mini kilner jars.good location.Very helpful .
Public areas very comfortable and an excellent breakfast.
My room -number 2- was above the kitchen area - loud noise as if I was in the kitchen from 5 p.m through to 12.40 the following morning. Could not sleep for loud voices and pans banging etc. On complaining the next morning I was told that only happened at weekend when they served dinner! Also that any noise stopped at 11 p.m -Not so. They are apparently going to convert that area of bedrooms into a flat which suggests to me they are all too aware of the problem. In the meantime, if booking, make sure you are not in the rear corridor of rooms.
Availability of parking nearby
Greater availability of evening meals would have been helpful although because of local restaurants not a problem
My review is excellent because that is how my stay was no elaborate waffling needed. Book here with confidence and enjoy the lovely breakfast!
There was nothing to report.
Great traditional ambience, good food, comfortable stay.
Room and ensuite a little cramped but comfortable. Second twisty staircase may be trying for some.
Four poster bed was v comfortable - room well furnished and cosy. We were well cared for by all the staff.v good breakfast.
clean and friendly with staff very willing to help
The staff were extremely helpful and informative could not fault them particularly the young lady at breakfast unfortunately did not get her name but she was lovely. Would recommend to anybody and we will certainly visit again.
The only thing was the shower was not very powerful but this was a very minor point
