The room was 'tired'. The window didn't shut properly. It needs an upgrade and bedside lights fitting. Couldn't read at night without having main light on and that disturbed other half.
Staff welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Linen and towels were very good. Brilliant shower. Cooked breakfast was superb and plenty of it.

Staff were friendly and accommodating

The bed head knocked against the wall whenever either or us moved. The bed was also very hard. The lighting was quite dim (there was only a small window which didn't let in much light) and it was difficult to read at nighttime.
The convenience of being able to book a single night during the Easter weekend was welcome. Service at breakfast was quick.

Rooms had bad lighting due to low energy bulbs, so very dingy.
Good value for money

The rooms are all around a the pubs car park, not upstairs in the main building. Musty smell in the room. Heating not working in the bathroom, and only partly in the bedroom. Lighting very dim, found it difficult to read by. Building work just started in the hotel, so builders vans made parking very difficult.

Friendly & professional staff and a good breakfast each morning. Evening meals and beer were enjoyable and very reasonable plus close to all amenities. Would definitely return in the near future.

Everything to be expected and more

The Bed was the most uncomfortable bed that I had every slept in. One pillow, goodness me.Not even a valence on the base. OK so it was £30 for the night, some say you get what you pay for, however, others offer much better for the same price.Customer service scores nil !
Nothing that I really liked !

Noisey radiator in room 3, kept gouging and going all night.
We're local so knew location and what to expect with regards the bar/ food. HOWEVER a great 1 nigh stay, extra requests re flowers and champagne in the room were no problem. Staff are friendly and despite central location in middle of Dorchester, room was really really quiet with no outside noise at all!

Friendly staff - big breakfast
January 15, 2015
The window was stuck, it did open OK, but when to be closed it really needed 2 people, someone inside to hold up the catch & another outside to put pressure on the wooden frame. The full english breakfast was not to my taste, you get a good full plate, but on both days it tasted like everything was cooked in the same pan ..... everything tasted of bacon!
Although it's a very busy public house, the rooms are separate from the main building (across the car park, similar set up to a motel) There was a late night disco taking place in the main building the 1st night we stayed, but apart from a quiet base, it was remarkably quiet.

Arranged for breakfast at 8 am as had deadlune to meet, checked 3 times this was ok. Following morning the place was all locked up, after 25 mins a cleaner appered and said the manager would be down soon. In the end had to go to the local cafe and get breakfast. A discount was given when I settled the bill, but very frustrating when people let you down
Rooms were good, evening meal was value for money

No windows at ground level in room No.4. Better and brighter lighting would help.
Convenient location for town centre and all public transport. Quiet at night without any disturbance. Good sized room with excellent shower/toilet facilities. Very comfortable room furniture, ideal for relaxing.Friendly manager Albert and all his crew gave first class service
