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.

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...
