We stayed in a beautiful room with a four poster bed. The furnishings were luxurious and the room was spacious. Everything was perfect. Breakfast was in the most interesting room and cooked to perfection. The host Mark was wonderful, fascinating without being too much, welcoming but not intrusive. We had a great 2 night stay.

Really pleasant and welcoming. Lots of interesting features in the building! And lovely spacious room. Me and my other half would definitely recommend (: only niggle I had was the breakfast was quite limited, but nice nevertheless. And would have been nice to have regular tea in the rooms.

A great place to stay. Full of character and the spacious bedroom with the four poster bed was so comfortable. Nice and quiet at night. And the breakfast set us up for more sightseeing of the Jurassic Coast. Definitely would stay again. Thanks to the host, most welcoming.

We were made very welcome by our charming host Mark. We got the stylish triple bedroom which brought us back in time: it had beautiful carpets, curtains, bedspread etc. I would really recommend this place if you are looking for something extraordinary and yet affordable.

We were looking for a comfortable overnight stay on our way to west Dorset and this was just what we wanted. Comfortable, quirky and in a great location - in the centre of the town and within easy walk of bars and restaurants. Mark was a friendly and informative host. Highly recommended!

Very friendly owner, In the middle of the night we made some noise, excuses for that, but the owner was still very friendly to us, thank you! Besides that: Perfect central in Dorchester location. Delicious breakfast! And a fantastic historical house.

Mark is a star. The hotel is right in the middle of town, there is good parking, the breakfast is excellent. The beer in the pubs is good. There are a number of trendy places up the road and the town centre is on the door step. There are the more traditional pubs around the corner I am waffling to... More

I do not think a hotel could surpass the friendly service of the proprietor who was exceedingly attentive and determined we had a comfortable and pleasant stay. The bed couldn't have been bigger or more comfortable. All the necessary was supplied and the bathroom looked recently appointed if it did lack small things like soap dish in shower and toilet...
