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...

We found this B&B through Tripadvisor and I'm very glad we went with it. The building is in a superb location moments from both train stations and the old and new parts of town, very interesting architecture and full of character and curiosities (and stories!). Great breakfast, large rooms, clean, comfortable and everything you'd expect and need, really, including free... More

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.
