“enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

We had an enjoyable stay at the Premier Inn Dorchester.It was in a great situation within walking distance of the town ,in a new development,the staff were very helpful and it was good to be able to park the car in the underground car park ,we did arrive early so maybe we were lucky to get a space. The only drawback was the restaurant in the hotel,being in a new development the majority of eating places were Italian and so was the one in the hotel,so if you didn't want Italian there wasn't much on offer.Please Premier Inn have a variety of food to suit everyone as we would have liked to eat in restaurant and take advantage of your meal deal as we have done on many occasions whilst staying with you.

At last -- a good, modern hotel in the heart of Dorchester. This is quite new and is one of the larger type Premier Inns with its own restaurant where you can (and we did) enjoy a huge all-you-can-eat breakfast. The staff are friendly and efficient and the rooms are the usual high quality you expect from this chain of hotels. It is ideally located next to Dorchester South Railway Station and is set within the heart of the town's lively new Brewery Square development, so there's a fantastic choice of restaurants within a minute's walk. Strongly recommended.

We stayed at Premier Inn for 1 night and as always cannot fault it.
Room was clean, very comfortable, bathroom was very clean, nice soft large towels and the shower was good.
Really liked the underground carpark with access direct to hotel.
Staff as always were very helpful,

We have stayed at many Premier Inns, and this one is new and is very good. The location is excellent for the new shopping area, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were as you would expect and up to a high standard.
We booked some time ago just for one night and got it for a very good £25,
We liked the security of a locked underground car park for the car at only £2, but best to get there early as spaces are limited

The town centre is close by, easy walking distance with a good variety of shops, and some odd quirky ones as well.

The place is teeming with history, but the 'famous' museums are a bit of a con, the terracotta warriors and tutunkamun doesnt have any originals.

We were also well places for lots of other attractions that Dorset has to offer.

This is the standard that all budget hotels should be striving to meet, and a lot of non budget hotels will need to up their standards, the staff are very friendly and want to help.
We stayed over night on the way to Cornwall, arrived late, so did not eat at the hotel.
The breakfast was good, although the chief was pushed and needed some assistance.
All things considered, this is the best Premier Inn we have stayed at so far
We will stay again.

The rooms are lovely, very big, clean and to the usual high standard with nice Hypnos comfy beds, flat screen TV and tea/coffee making.This Premier Inn is located in the redevlkopment f the former Eldridge Pope brewery in Dorchester. Great staff and the town is really nice too, great spot to tour Hardy country. Recommended !

Room Tip: Think all are good

New hotel, so you expect the rooms to be fresh. Quiet, clean, choice of pillows meant a good night's sleep. Staff very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but it looked welcoming.

We'll be back.
