The front desk is usually a good indicator of the overall service you can expect to receive. With the Dorset Inn, we got a good feeling the moment we walked in the door. The front desk person was friendly, helpful, spot on with our information and well versed in the area as well. We stayed at the Inn for a wedding that was on property. The high level of service continued throughout our stay. The room was very clean, bed was comfy, blackout shades worked perfectly. The FOOD WAS PHENOMENAL, the bar staff was a pleasure and the manager who helped with the lgistics all weekend was on point but never intrusive. Great Job Dorset Inn!!!! we will be back !! As far as other reviews 1. One said something abouyt the noise on the street side. We weren't bothered by it and quite frankly its a tiny little Vermont town, there just isn't much traffic. 2. Another was about the size of the rooms. This Inn was built in the late 1700s, its not a cookie cutter Hilton. That said, our king sized bed and the theroom were more than adequately sized, immaculate and up to date. And there is a lot of space at the Inn to hang out, so why waste the space on the room, enjoy the entire Inn

Made a reservation for dinner at 7:30. We arrived early, and sat at the bar. Decided to ask the hostess, Christine, if we could be seated earlier than our reservation. She was very kind and gave us a table. The meal was amazing.. food and service were perfect. The wine list is impressive and the drinks expertly crafted.

An old inn with modern, comfortable rooms and a terrific restaurant and tavern. We were there celebrating our anniversary and could not have made a better choice. The staff was welcoming and friendly, knowledgable about local hikes and attractions, offered complimentary "snacks" in the afternoon...we were hiking and couldn't get back in time for the snacks so they saved us a plate and delivered it to our room when we returned. The dinner in their tavern was exceptional as was the complimentary breakfast which included things like eggs benedict, french toast, etc - not your basic hotel continental breakfast!!!! We would highly recommend the Dorset Inn.

I stayed here for two nights in September prior to a friend’s wedding. The staff here is incredibly kind and warm—from welcome to check out. The breakfast which was included with our room was also beyond delicious, I was impressed. The room was not very large but it was comfortable. The only downside was that our room faced the street and with cars whizzing by and the windows open it was loud in the morning. I would request another room facing elsewhere if you are a light sleeper. Otherwise I recommend it!

My husband and I spent two nights at The Dorset Inn and were delighted with the experience. It is an old inn whose original atmosphere has been nicely maintained. We were given a guest suite consisting of a large bedroom and a sitting room overlooking the front boulevard. Our breakfasts were wonderful and our large bed cosy. Dorset is a charming old village and not far from Manchester which is also fun to walk around. It houses some "outlet stores" but we did not find them particularly interesting or offering bargains.
