OK for a quick visit

Well located in the centre of Dorchester, this Best Western Hotel is definitely ok for a weekend visit. The room the wife and I had was on the first floor was small and dominated by a large bed but wa... more

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. The rooms in our hotel vary in size as it is an old coaching inn, dating back to the 1750's. Our on site car park is limited, but we are lucky enough to have a public pay and display 2 minutes from the hotel, and this is free overnight. We hope that you had a great visit to Dorset, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are a grade 2 listed building in the middle of town, and are not able to have double glazing. We are glad that you were moved to a quieter room, and that you found the staff and breakfast good. We hope that you had a great time in Dorset, and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
