An absolute gem. Tried hard to find a fault, but couldn't. Room was great, the guest house is run by Tom & Demelsa who are absoultely fantastic, making sure guests are made welcome. Food is a major issue for me, as it is for the owners here! They don't offer anything but breakfast, but have a host of restaurants within a few minutes walk, and seem to have reviewed them all! Attention to detail is brillant, no UHT milk with the in-room tea and coffee, a little jug in the fridge filled with the real fresh thing. They only serve breakfast, but that is a cut above the usual, even providing XO marmite (OK I admit, I love it!).
Being in the centre of Dorchester parking is a bit of a problem, but 24 hour parking is available about 100 yards up the road.
We didn't test this out, but the guide in the room says if you fancy a take away in your room, just let them know and you can borrrow crockery, cutlery and glasses for wine. Civilised or what!
