Really nice room and well worth the money paid. The room had nice little touches, such as coffee machines and fresh milk. The breakfast stole the show, fresh and tasty. Really paid attention to detail. Very cute cat too!! We would stay here again, only things were parking would be a slight issue with work in the area and also... More

We arrived late to a warm welcome and a lovely room. Breakfast was delicious and sustaining. Throughout our 2 day stay we were treated superbly and with real enthusiasm. Our room was large, comfortable and spotless. Really looking forward to a second visit.

Fantastic place to stay, great hosts, brilliant breakfast with options for any tastes. Room was brilliantly presented and was extremely clean. Quality of room really impressive even down to really thick pile on carpets. If you want to stay in Dorchester the location is perfect, a range of restaurants, pubs and exhibitions are within easy walking distance. Very highly recommended.

We stayed for 2 nights earlier this month. We're a famliy of 4 (2 adults and 2 children). No connecting rooms were available for our stay and we instead stayed in 2 separate rooms on different floors. One of the rooms we had was on the lower-ground level; it still had quite a bit of natural light through a sunken... More

This doesn't look special from the street but once through the door you enter a clean and quiet 6 room hotel. It has been completely refurbished and is in excellent condition. The choices for breakfast stretched from muesli and yoghurt to full English or eggs Benidict. The owners were cheerful and helpful. I would definitely return here next time

Stayed here with 3 friends as we were at a wedding in the area. We didn't arrive until midnight due to traffic but this wasn't a problem and we were helped in with our bags as we were on the top floor. The rooms were very nice with lots of nice little touches. The breakfast was really nice with lots... More

Tom have is a very friendly welcome and was very helpful with regard to finding a nice restaurant. The family room was lovely and basically two rooms joined by a connecting door and a shared bathroom. The decorations were tasteful and there were some thoughtful touches. We had a fridge with fresh milk provided and plenty of tea and coffee.... More

Travelling on business with hotel arrangements made for me by our corporate travel partners on a tight budget. Most of the places I end up in are 'satisfactory', but nothing to write home about. This time? An unexpected gem! Great greeting from Tom, impressive and comfortable room, plus the lovely town of Dorchester on the doorstep. This morning, a wonderful... More
