    Dorchester has the feel of a small town with many delightful...

    Dorchester has the feel of a small town with many delightful old buildings, cafes, pubs and restaurants, all seemingly selling good food. There are many museums in and around the town centre, often easy to get to on foot. There is Roman history here, medieval too, a long military heritage and of course the dinosaurs of the famous Jurassic coast. Too many things to do in just one weekend, and many more attractions only a short car-drive away. The shops? - Well we never had time to explore them!

    Lots to do here.

    Lots to do here. Walk by the river and look at the wildlife. A variety of shops to browse in. Old pubs, art gallery, museums- Terracotta warriors, dinosaur, tutankhamun. There is also an exceptional artist supply shop here, Handy for Jurrasic coast - lyme regis etc.

    The Dorchester Museum is excellent.

    The Dorchester Museum is excellent. We called in just to find out about the Iron Age fort and ended up learning so much more. Everything is very clearly displayed and explained in enough detail, but not too much. There are some remarkable Roman mosaics, a good overview of a fascinating history of the area, and an interesting section about Thomas Hardy. We were there in cold, wet February weather, so outdoor activities didn’t suit the weather. At different times of the year the outdoor activities in the area have great promise.

    We only went for my cousin wedding at the towns registry office, that was a very good experience. We had intended to look around the town on the following day but the weather was so foul we travelled back home. The town for what we saw had some wonderful historical building, and we would have liked to explored more

    Only visited for the afternoon and evening meal. The Keep Museum is excellent with a great view from the top. Excellent Italian/Fish restaurant "Al Molo" (which was the main reason for visit). Would definitely visit again.

    An important county town, oozing history, good restaurant options and fine shops. The Council provides helpful parking. The District Hospital was one of the best NHS performers I have experienced, thankyou. Don't miss the museum.

    Charming small hotel, so beautifully decorated. Our room was very comfortable. Easy walking access to shops, town walks, and busses (we enjoyed taking the Jurassic Coaster busses to Lyme Regis, West Bay, Weymouth). Breakfast wasn't included in our booking but we added it on once there, very good value. Make sure to try the apple juice! Room had a portable fan which helped keep the room comfortable. The proprietor was very kind, offered many good suggestions for dining, sights, etc.

    Without doubt this was the best room we have rented. An idyllic location, spotlessly clean with friendly and helpful hosts. We rented for four days and would not hesitate to return or recommend to anyone. Breakfast is tasty and plentiful, the room comfortable and well furnished and the wifi fast. Bear in mind that there is no bath but the shower is large and powerful. The village is extremely pretty too and Dorchester has some great restaurants and beautiful surroundings.

    We stayed in one of the family rooms which was very spacious. There were two rooms, one with a double and the other two singles. It was clean, with crisp white sheets and very comfortable beds. The breakfast was delicious as well as the food in the evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we loved the location in a pretty village, lovely countryside but also a stones through from Dorchester. Thoroughly recommend!

    The property is situated in a quant setting by the riverbank surrounded by the beauty of nature. Yet,Dorchester and a vast choice of dining area are within just a few miles. The contrast of which offers both the still and peace of the property location and then those seeking a more lively visit, have the bustle of fine eateries within reaching distance.

    Location was very good. Breakfast was good. The weather was very poor so we stayed in the hotel for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of the menu. We had expected a traditional, somewhat boring menu, but the menu was modern and the food quality was excellent. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating.

    Lovely pub in a picturesque Dorset village, very quiet and peaceful. Ideally placed for visiting Dorchester (Maiden castle), the Jurassic coast and Corfe castle. Very friendly pub staff and great food and beer. We were made to feel very welcome. A revisit is definitely on the cards
