Great location, close to Dorchester & Weymouth - why trek all the way to Devon & Cornwall when this gem is so much closer?
To reiterate a previous comment - book dinner with your room. The restaurant has such a good reputation that it is extremely popular with non-residents. The food is locally sourced and fabulous. The mini Scotch eggs sublime!
There are nice touches, such as decent sized mugs in the room and a cafetiere in the room. The owners & staff were very welcoming and made for a professional but relaxed atmosphere and service.
For my personal preference the bed was a little soft, but others may feel it is perfect.
Would definitely recommend to others and would like to go back.
