I booked a standard double room, the room was spacious, clean and reasonably well equipped, but the floorboards did creak from time to time. A kettle was provided, although the only water available in the room was from the bathroom. The wifi provided was fast enough for what I used it for, but, I had to log into the wifi multiple times per day in order to use it.
The food in the onsite restaurant was superb. I did have to book a table in advance due to Covid (same with the pool & gym), but that wasn't too much of a hassle. There's no laundrette at the hotel, but there's one a short walk away (bring 50ps to get detergent).
The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from the station, and 20 from town centre. There's also nearby bus stops to get to town, or to Dorchester.
The staff were very helpful, and willing to go the extra mile. For instance, during my holiday, I had a fall during a hike and sprained my ankle, after getting back to the hotel, I asked reception if they had an ice pack to help ease the swelling. While they didn't have an ice pack ready, they did give me a bag of ice with cloths as a substitute.
The hotel seemed to be taking the social distancing measures seriously throughout my stay. With hand sanitiser available at the entrance, requiring guest wear masks in common areas, staff wearing masks at all times, which was nice to see. less
