Mark aims to please and succeeds. Price is competitive for Dorchester and breakfast excellent. Would have liked a guided tour of the other rooms but it was Christmas and full so I did not ask. He would maybe oblige because you feel you have missed out as the place has tremendous character. Excellent central position for the town.

Mark was very welcoming and helpful. He helped us with our luggages without hesitation. The house is beautifully furnished with gorgeous pieces which was artistically decorated by Mark. He is definitely gifted. We enjoyed breakfast time the most as the room we dined in is very lovely. Note: the house is on a sharp corner and while the front entrance... More

I stayed here for one night and found it very comfortable . Mark was very welcoming and extremely helpful. Please be aware it is not an easy place to find I the dark as the house was not obviously sign posted and the entrance to the very small car park is not obvious! The room was very clean and comfortable... More

My husband and I had a wonderful - child-free - overnight stop at this lovely place. Our host, Mark, was fabulously welcoming, attentive and helpful - without being intrusive. The building is a beautifully maintained period house with many endearing characteristics and it is furnished beautifully. The location is perfect for a wander around the market town of Dorchester.

Ideally situated for town centre. Pleasant host. Decent breakfast. In hindsight, slightly overpriced as towels could do with replacing, looked a little worn, old picture frame in our wardrobe, 2 pictures not ideally placed on the wall next to twin bed, right in line with face when you turnover, didnt taste the tea/coffee in room as sugar in the sachets...

Ihave stayed with the Proprietor, Mark Brown for most weeks since seconf week in June. You'd think he'd be grateful for ongoing commercial trade but it doesn't appear so. I managed to get a fairly good deal from him week on week but then he started to vary his charges. However, what amazed me was the pricing differential of £30... More

On the wall a message tot take care for dropping water on the floor as that could harm the sealing of the lower... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay for a wedding of a friend and found this little gem online. The owner Mark was incredibly accommodating, showing us the ropes of the place. Inside it was incredible. Our room was the four-poster at the front with bay windows looking over into the town and an en-suite bathtub. The water was hot,... More
