This premier inn is in an excellent location but is a little tired and could do with an overall. The parking is limited though you can drop off outside the hotel and then park somewhere else. We stayed over a bank holiday so not a problem but may be at other times. Close to a number of restaurants and bars...

We stayed overnight at the end of March. Staff were very helpful, parking nearby didn't cause an issue and the location was excellent. However, the room wasn't as clean as it should've been. The toilet had brown stained limescale in the bowl and hair in the bath. Very disappointing and unexpected for a premier inn. We were only there one...

Parking limited and dfficult to find but only a 5-10min walk from a nearby public car park with reasonable parking charges. Kitchens had low staffing when we were there causing delays in eating dinner but very friendly...

Great location and friendly and helpful staff. The hotel and staff was great and would definitely go back. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and within walking distance to the town. Would stay again

Fantastic, efficient and friendly staff. Basic but spotlessly clean rooms which are perfectly located amongst an absolute stack of restaurants, what more could you ask for. Oh yes and a cinema and ice cream parlour too all in walking distance.

Great location and excellent service from the overworked staff. Limited parking but public parking is nearby. Convenient on site resturant. Service was slow in the evening but the resturant staff were covering the hotel reception desk so that can be understood. Nice quiet room and instant hot water for baths with plenty of towels. For a family room Inc breakfast...

Great location for touring the county and especially the coast and Monkey World. Car parking situation a bit annoying but didn't affect quality of the trip. Lots of eating places easily walkable. Recommended for a short break.

Far from the madding crowd, but near to all the delights of Dorset, the Premier Inn Hotel Dorchester puts you in the heart of Thomas Hardy country. In the historic town's new Brewery Square development, you'll have business, leisure and heritage right on your doorstep. You could set sail at Olympic watersports venue Weymouth and Portland. Or hang out with the kings of the swingers at Monkey World. And if it's the right time of year, fire up your engine at the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Then retreat to our stylish restaurant, spacious rooms and extra comfy beds. ... more   less
