“Great value”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed for one night. Great staff and very clean room. Excellent value for money. We stayed for dinner and breakfast. The kitchen is open plan and the chefs cooked some amazing food. Only one small criticism...... There was us and one other person in the restaurant. The menu is very limited. Very small choice of dinners. Expand your menu, offer more choice of drinks and I'm sure more people would eat in. Very talented chefs who cook amazing food from scratch but No variety. Will definitely stay again

We had a one night stay in family, at the Premier Inn in December during our trip in the south of UK. It was a really good stay.
The reception was excellent and quick. The night, great. The breakfast really excellent, not only the food but a really nice service and guys at the breakfast room inquiring to offer you a good moment.
The cherry on the cake was a really good price.
Hotel is also well located and at 5mn by walk from the city center.
I recommend it for a visit of dorchester.

Stayed her over Christmas when visiting my family, the rooms were spotless, there was a lovely bath and shower in the en suite. I didn't opt in for breakfast but it did look nice, not sure it's worth £8 though as there are many cafes nearby where you can eat for almost half the price, and i daresay get better food. I would definitely stay here again,

Front desk staff didn't seem at all annoyed to be working over Christmas which was nice, they were very attentive and helpful. The hotel is less than a minutes walk to Dorchester South train station which is very handy & a 5 minute walk to the town centre.

Only stayed for one night but feel a little disappointed that for a new premier inn we have stayed at better.
As expected the room was clean and comfortable but the service was average (when you actually saw a member of staff).
Ate dinner in the restaurant and used the bar which was ok, limited choice but again average service e.g when trying to pay our bill the bar staff were too busy chatting to serve us, leaving the receptionist to do so.
This hotel will be in a prime location once the area has finished being re-developed (currently building bars, restaurants etc very near by) and we would revisit for this purpose, just hope the little niggles that we experienced will be ironed out to make future stays as good as previous stays we have had at other premier inns.

A very Good Hotel in a convient center of town.Not many car spaces so book early.Book an odd number room if you want to sleep soundly.Make sure you can get two room card keys as you need them for the lifts ,your room and to keep the ligts on in your room.
