          Visited Dorchester last weekend for a Christening and booked in to Aquila Heights without looking at reviews just on webpage description. The welcome, service, room and food were simply the best we have experienced. Thankyou Derek and Wendy - wonderful hosts.

          Stayed on 28.9.16. Nice welcome, good rooms, brilliant brekkers all in a clean, good value for money package. Motorbike friendly though you need your wits about you when you have to reverse down the incline of the drive.

          We loved the super king sized bed and the sofa - felt like being at home. Details have been well thought out such as blackout curtains and choice of teas and coffee in the room. Delicious breakfast with loads of choice.
