I stayed for two nights in this hotel while staying in Dorchester for my work. It is essentially a pub with a restaurant and sleeping accommodation, and while it is of a reasonable standard it is nothing spectacular. It has a car park but residents might find it difficult to find a parking space when there are guests in the pub.
Accommodation is outside the main building, probably a converted stable block. The room was very well appointed and clean, but the bed was elderly and creaked every time I moved in bed. On both nights there was a disco in the main building which did not finish until 1 o'clock in the morning, but despite being close I could hardly hear it in my room.
English breakfast is included in the price.
Going into the main building in the evening to get a drink was not a pleasant experience as the outside of the only entrance door was completely surrounded by people smoking: not at all nice for non-smokers. It would be far better if they were to encourage smokers to go a bit further away from the main entrance.
All right for a short stay, and while it is not the best place I have ever stayed in, it is far better than many.
