This was our first visit to the hotel and to Dorchester and we will return. Dorchester is an interesting town in a lovely setting, with a range of shops, a weekly market, and a variety of places to eat and drink. The bus to Weymouth, which is well worth a visit, stops just outside the hotel, and there are also buses to Lyme Regis and other places of interest. The walk from the station takes about 15 minutes.
We stayed in a standard double, which was very clean, well lit and well furnished, and the bed was very comfortable. Tea, coffee, bottled water and biscuits were provided every day, and the complimentary newspaper was a welcome addition. There was an efficient shower over the bath, with a heated towel rail, good quality towels, and shower gel/shampoo. We were in room at the rear of the hotel, which suited us. Rooms at the front might be noisy.
The breakfast menu was varied and we enjoyed everything we tried during our three day stay. All of the staff we encountered at reception, in the bar, and at breakfast were friendly and efficient. We didn't meet the member of staff who cleaned our room but she did a great job. less
