I stayed for two nights in this hotel while staying in Dorchester for my work. It is essentially a pub with a restaurant and sleeping accommodation, and while it is of a reasonable standard it is nothing spectacular. It has a car park but residents might find it difficult to find a parking space when there are guests in the... More

this hotel/b&b is okay for a couple of nights. the rooms are in the pub grounds and were old garages or sheds, don't get me wrong they done out real good. The beds (we had twin beds) have seen a fair bit of action, but were clean the carpet could do with replacing. Staff were very helpful and friendly, we... More

stayed here after a visit to Monkeyworld. The Pub was busy on our arrival and there didn't seem to be enough staff on duty to ensure we were attended to promptly. Staff friendly and professional. The room was perfectly fine for our purpose however it could have used a bit of a repaint.. nothing drastic. It was a bit disappointing... More

Travelling by motorcycle, I needed to stop for the night and happened across this hotel. Rooms were available, and checked in.. Nice big room and comfortable. They gave me a discount rate too, arriving at about 7pm. Ate in the pub, the menu looked very good. My meal was delicious. Friendly staff. Good food, comfortable. Well done, Junction!

I stayed with some friends for a weekend as we were going to a wedding nearby. The rooms were clean and pleasant, though as they're in old out buildings they are a little dark. The staff were so friendly and helpful and went out of their way to check we had what we needed, they were also really friendly to... More

I would think all the new Restaurants at the old Brewery site have made a lot of difference to this Pub. We stayed at the new Premier inn on this new site for 5 nights and ate at The Junction for three of those nights. The food was good, but the one thing that is very off-putting is that everything...

We stopped here for 3 nights over the recent whitsun holiday weekend, having stopped here previously. The rooms were comfortable enough, clean, flat screen television. good shower. No complaints, However getting breakfast is a different story! We were asked when we checked in what time we would like breakfast. I thought this was strange, as there was a sign stating... More

Stayed here over New Year as the usual hotel was shut. Was rather dubious on arrival, but the rooms were comfortable and clean, and it was surprisingly quiet for a town centre pub! Food was excellent - both supper and breakfast, and the staff very pleasant. Would recommend this place for short stays, but the carparking is poor
