Sweet Dreams in Dorchester.

Centrally located in the heart of delightful Dorchester, Best Western Wessex Royale Hotel & Restaurant offers Georgian gorgeousness aplenty close to the Jurassic Coast - standing proudly as an old coaching inn that was built in 1756 and effortlessly transformed into modern-day accommodation. Our classically designed rooms and excellent central location make the hotel ideal for a relaxing break or business trip, with our bedrooms oozing unique charm and traditional character...not to mention supremely comfortable furnishings to help you feel wonderfully rested in Wessex.

Did you know, Dorchester is Thomas Hardy's birthplace and the inspiration for Casterbridge in his novels?
