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

Host Mark is a charming hostile and helpful person. This is a place we can recoment, only thing was our bathroom, almost impossible to take a shower. We had a bathtub and no shower curtain at all. 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

I was booked in at short notice following a recommendation from a work colleague who lives in Dorchester for two nights when moving simultaneously home in Cornwall and "on duty" in Dorset. That was in December 2012 and since then I have stayed for 1 or 2 and upto 4 nights on 20 subsequent occasions, using the house as a... More

We spent two nights in this lovingly restored and very personally decorated house a few minutes stroll from the centre of Dorchester. The host, Mark, is a charming friendly man who gave us good helpful recommendations for pubs and restaurants in the town. Our room was large and nicely furnished and the breakfasts were a treat. This was great value... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 under 3 booked the family suite that consisted of 2 adjoining rooms and private bath at the top of the house. Loads of space, very comfortable, and we couldn't tell if there was anyone else staying (although Mark did tell us they were full). They were exceptionally accommodating and friendly. I did feel...

I needed somewhere to stay before a cycle sportive on the Jurassic coast. I booked Beggar's Knap based on location and reviews. Mark texted me to arrange my arrival and breakfast time. A beautiful victorian house with some eclectic decor and trinkets ( I had an old street lamp with a miniature captain hook inside in my en suite) My... More

Lovely B&B. Mark is very friendly, helpful and full of useful local information. Other reviewers mention the tricky car park, but the gates are generous and we didn't find it problematic. Certainly don't let it put you off. I loved all the interesting family memorabilia and information on the property itself.
