My sister and I stayed four nights here recently. The building is stunning - it dates from the 1400's and our room was off the medieval gallery. With a building this old - probably Listed - you can't expect something which looks as though it was finished last year, but our twin room was quite spacious and the bathroom fitted with an excellent modern shower. There was a bright breakfast room with a lovely garden outlook, a more formal dining room and a cosy bar. Staff were friendly and professional, and the food was really excellent - much better than we had expected in a small village hotel of this kind. The prices are very reasonable, which makes the hotel good value for money. There are a few niggles - our wardrobe was very small, and many of the hangers in it were broken; there was also a rather noisy kitchen extractor fan outside our room, though this was only on when meals were being served - but for us these were more than outweighed by the atmosphere and service. Dorchester is a pretty village, very quiet and with many interesting old buildings. Altogether a great place for a short break - we would certainly visit again.
