We only booked this hotel for one night .on entering we knew we had made the right choice.first class hotel.keep up the good work.you will be seeing us before too long.thanks again.
Helpful staff provided breakfast at 5.30am. Good food in the restaurant
Recommendation for local restaurants. Nice reception and polite staff
Staff were great, very friendly and helpful Food at the hotel was very good standard
We stayed in the court yard room 1 Nothing to major to complain about just that the storeroom was located within the same block and staff started early to get things ready for that day.
The hotel is right in the centre of Dorchester, the bed was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. Very good breakfast
The beer in the bar was awful
Homely atmosphere and staff very smiley and chatty. Food presentable and wholesome with beers on tap at the bar. Good "firm-ish" bed.
Creaky floor boards under carpet.
Central location Excellent food Helpful friendly staff Small but comfortable room
Limited parking A little expensive for what was provided
The staff were really nice Food fabulous Great stay
I liked everything
The staff was very nice and helpful. The food in the restaurant was delicious. Breakfast was also very nice. Complimentary papers of our choice. Room was big and the beds comfortable.
Our room was on the side of the High street and we could hear a lot of noise from outside.The bathroom warns that the towel rail gets really hot, but because of its position, we all touched it several times and can confirm that it is very hot indeed.
Location of hotel, staff lovely, comfortable bed, would stay here again.
Our deluxe room was fab but situated at the front of hotel so rathet noisy.
It feels like a hotel with history and I love the quirkiness of the staff that go with it.
Comfortable room, friendly staff, excellent food.
The service was excellent, staff very friendly, attentive and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. Wifi worked right away. Apart from the noisy seagulls, it was quiet.
My room was at the very top and with outdoor temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius it was extremely hot. A thinner blanket on the bed would have been more suitable.
High points were the quality of the service and the excellent food-best place to eat! Proximity to shops and other facilities should also be mentioned.
Traffic noise in front bedroom - luckily owing to the changeable weather, we were able to keep the windows closed. Staff were made aware of the potential problem and responded positively. Decor of bedroom: cold and uninspiring but acceptable . Furniture functional rather than comfortable.
staff very pleasant to deal with and helpful. the meal and wine were good and good value. although no car park, the nearby parking was very easy and convenient and the cost of the ticket reimbursed.
the breakfast coffee and tea were awful. a pity because there was nothing wrong with the food.
Good vibe in hotel
No parking Big noisy group in bar
The Hotel 'set in a large old terraced town house' was ideally situated for my visit. Very small parking at the rear but a stones throw from very cheap all day public parking. Very good staff and facilities and food.
Ok, perhaps being picky and taking into consideration the age of the building but room 106 had floorboards that felt like you were walking on sand they moved that much. And the associated loud creaking made me feel very self conscious about moving around the room for fear of disturbing neighbouring rooms. Other than that was a good stay.
We had a lovely stay and the staff couldn't do enough for us and they were the happiest and friendliest we have ever had they should be a a five star hotel
Lovely old building on the main drag through Dorchester. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel had a good feel to it. Nicely decorated and clean. The room was at the front so not the best position but that is not the hotels fault. Breakfast was OK.
I have a real problem with hotels that split large rooms into two and then don't soundproof them properly. You could hear the people in the room or rooms (not sure if more than one connected to ours) quite clearly talking. Not good enough for £160 a night,
Good quality breakfast with good choice
Battery missing in TV remote control - not replaced during 5 night stay even after asking on the 1st day Complimentary newspaper not provided on last day
Comfortable clean rooms, good breakfast finished off with a complementary newspaper.
Occasional noisy guests in the corridor.
The location - especially with a lovely safe park a minute's walk from the hotel. Local shops and supermarket in walking distance. Really helpful staff and chef who prepared personalised meals for our 1yr old. Nice size room with a cot ready made up when we arrived.
There aren't a huge number of restaurants in Dorcester, although the nearby Prezzo is very child friendly. Car parking for the hotel is very limited and when parking on the road it was on a metre and had to be changed at 8am! The hotel could do with making provisions for guests who can't fit in the carpark.
great breakfasts,helpful staff,efficient housekeeping, handy location
