Our second stay at this hotel. This time, the room was a fraction of the size- luck of the draw, I guess! First time, we had a huge room at the front of the hotel, this time it was Room 103, towards the back. Still, enough space for us and our luggage. As always with Best Western , everything was...

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel which we enjoyed. This was a short pleasure break. We stayed in Room 118 (George) which was a lovely spacious room and very clean. It was also very quiet, as it was the last room on the ground floor. The breakfast was very tasty and cooked to order,... More

We always remember when the beds were comfortable and we slept well as we have a busy day ahead so having an uncomfortable bed is not good......The breakfast and location was very good....If you have twin beds in your room's you should have bigger sizes as the boys were falling off the sides...

I can highly recommend this hotel, a sense of real history and character with clean, well presented rooms. Service of a very high standard and excellent food. good value overall, with free parking through a narrow alleyway off the high street. If you are a Thomas Hardy fan; this hotel features in one of his novels and when sat in... More

Relaxing place to stay in the heart of the Dorchester. The quality of the restaurant food is high and a delicious breakfast! We found the staff very helpful and friendly. They even provided some dog biscuits for our dog...she was made most welcome!

The bar has been mentioned in several other reviews. It appears to be little used and indeed was fully shut up at a couple minutes past 11pm on a Saturday night when we returned to the hotel. There is a lack of real ales and they appear to be trying to turn the bar area into a 'Bistro'. Having lived... More

I recently had my ceremony and reception here at the Kings Arms and I have to say it was absolutely ideal. The food was amazing, and the staff were exceptional. I really felt like they did everything they could to make the day relaxed and run so smoothly. We stayed in their bridal suite which was absolutely stunning. Love the... More

My wife and I have just enjoyed a great weekend here.From the moment we booked through to checking in,the duration of our stay and checking out everything was problem free. Some may say that the hotel is a little dated but it has it's own character by way of low ceilings and creaking floor boards in places but this just... More
