I stayed at this hotel over the weekend. It is a new build so everything is clean and fresh. There is a restaurant onsite and the food and service are very good. The hotel is about 50 yards away from Dorchester South railway line and because of the limited parking at the hotel I parked my car on this facility. There is limited parking underneath the hotel so it might be worth checking with reception when you arrive otherwise use the station car parking. The location is the old Dorchester Brewery site and a couple of grade 2 listed buildings are still there to give a rustic flavour. I think one is due to be renovated into a spa so might be an idea to pack trunks and towel. There are other restaurants nearby so try these if you are staying a couple of days. The small shopping centre has a fountain display and large television screen so you can go and watch BBC News, if you feel the need.
