Great location and the manager was very helpful, the problem is parking, six rooms but a tiny car park, the rooms are cottage style and very large, clean and equipped to a reasonable level, although we did experience issues with the coffee making and choice of pillows.

The worst I have had anywhere. Couldn't eat the steak and ale pie. This is what it looked like inside - a gelatinous mess. Also not happy about the fact that they advertise a bottle of Prosecco for £9.99 but in small print it's only on a Thursday evening after 5pm - perhaps when you are swinging from the chandelier??!!

I have been and eaten in there 3 or 4 times recently and have always had a fantastic meal for both myself and family. good food and very reasonable on pricing. We didn't stay at the hotel as we live... More

Well presented accommodation in the old stable block. Lovely breakfast in a modern pub. Good value for money. Very central although not many parking spaces. A great place to stay if you are visiting for a few nights.

Visited with friends at approx10.00pm on a Saturday night. Externally a nice looking building. Curved serving bar with dance floor area set off to one side, loud music playing, separate dining area. Toilets clean. Staff polite. There is a small car park which can accommodate probably no more than half a dozen cars. There is accommodation, some appears to be... More

We were looking for a basic and clean place to spend a couple of nights. Unfortunately, the Junction Hotel did not deliver. As we walked into our room, the first thing we noticed were the stained carpet and walls. The bed didn't look much better, although the sheets were clean. The mattress was hard and we were only provided with... More

Staff were pleasant and helpful but the room was dark and dingy with a very heavily stained carpet but a nice shower. Bed was hard as was the one pillow each!! Breakfast was very good and overal the hotel... More

Met an associate for lunch. Did everything right. Friendly, efficient and good value. Polite staff and a great place to sit and catch up. Would recommend to anyone in Dorchester looking for a nice place to meet up and talk business

Enjoyed a lovely lunch in very relaxing surroundings. Beautiful decor with welcoming heritage murals and comfortable seating. We were delighted with the staff who were friendly and professional. Compliments to the Chef. Great food. Will certainly recommend this place for all.
