This is the second time we have stayed here and the owners made us very wellcome again. Nice to see tiny the cat again! Rooms were very nice and clean as the first visit. Breakfast is good with plenty of tea and orange juice. Loads of good eating venues near by the hotel. Will book again next year.

A friendly welcome as soon as I arrived. I stayed for a couple of nights and everything was perfect. I felt well attended to at breakfast (offered more toast and coffee without my even asking...) I arrived by train and walked from the station but the bus-stop is just outside. Local museums and restaurants on the doorstep. I would stay...

We arrived an hour before our room was due to be ready but we were made very welcome by Tom who showed us to our room. We had a superior double room which was delightful and had a little anti room with tv, sofa, little fridge with milk and bottled water and tea/coffee making facilities. The room was clean and...

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay with attention to detail from the couple whose home it is. This is as good as the best hotel with the home comfort and personal service that come from the husband and wife owners. Breakfast in the conservatory is lovely!

Plus points - lovely breakfast with loads of choice. Wonderful, comfortable large bed with very good bed linen. Good wifi connection. Coffee pod machine in room (though this needed a good clean before using) Central location so easy to walk around Dorchester. Negatives - Room 5 has very limited space in the bedroom, the adjacent 'living room' was nice but...
