Stayed at hotel weekend 11th June. B&B was easy walking distance to town. We had a larger room, was extremely spacious and bright. Plenty of choice for breakfast, great to have so many options over a full English breakfast. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The guest house is very easy to find with private off road parking and is in a good location just a short walk from town. Julienne was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. She also gave us... More

My second visit, and once again my short stay was well catered for. The attention to detail for a B&B is fabulous, including a jug of fresh milk in the fridge in the rooms - how I hate those little plastic containers! The reception from Julienne is very friendly, and the house clean, tidy and attractively decorated. There's a bus... More

We stayed in the lovely guest house for 3 nights (it should have been 2 originally but we enjoyed it so much we extended our stay!). The room was so comfortable and clean with a fridge fully stocked with any drink you fancied. The breakfast was fabulous each day and Julienne was so helpful it all added to the experience.... More

We were so glad we chose the Dorchester to stop at for our friends wedding. Julienne was so welcoming as was the stocked up fridge. The room was comfortable and decorated well. The food was to our liking too. I would recommend staying here, thank you Jilienne. Rob and Michelle

Excellent guest house, lovely family, great food. Honesty bar too which is lovely to see. Rooms comfy and a stocked up fridge was a warm welcome. Highly recommend. We were made to feel very welcome and the guest house was so good we asked to stay another night in the same room after they jiggled the rooms.
