We stayed here for three nights to explore Dorchester and the surrounding area. We arrived on Friday afternoon and were able to park in the underground car park which was a bonus and reassuring as we knew the car would be safe. We were checked in quickly to our room on the third floor which was well laid out, clean...

We stayed in room 308. The mattress is awful. reported it to the receptionist. "No Worries" was his reply. two awful nights sleep. Say no more. Really disappointed. When we got down to reception the second day, there was nobody there. To be honest, I have slept better in a Travelodge.

Hello and thanks for your review, I'm very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy a great night's sleep at the Dorchester hotel as you found your mattress uncomfortable. Our beds are supplied by the award winning supplier Hypnos so this shouldn't be the case. I've requested for the bed to be quality checked. I hope that in future we...

Premier Inn very good, and in a very central location for the town centre and ideal if traveling by train. Only issue is parking which is limited on site, and better signage of where you can park nearby on the website would be of help.. Breakfast was excellent.

Due to my husband being admitted to Dorchester Hospital after a serious medical episode, I needed to transfer to Dorchester Premier Inn at short notice from Weymouth, where I was staying. This would not have been possible without the help of the duty staff at Weymouth and, in particular, Rachel in Dorchester, who organised my transfer efficiently and caringly. Due...

Great location, good value for money. Clean rooms with comfortable beds and bedding. Very good breakfast and helpful and friendly staff members. Stayed with young children over New Years. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Excellent hotel - great location and sleep quality. It was relatively expensive - stayed on a Saturday night but that might have been because I booked quite last minute. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

Great location in heart of new Brewery Square, with cinema and eateries right on your doorstep. Could not be bettered for location or service. Rooms were spacious and well thought out. Windows that open are always a treat. We will be returning here.
