This is a pub on a busy crossroads oposite Dorchester Hospital. There is only one parking place for 5 letting rooms, no free parking nearby. The building is pretty shabby and in need of serious work. The room had been refurbished, superficially, but some huge fundamental problems with the building and the staffing.
I had a bad night. My room was very wet, due rain dripping through leaking ceiling. No alt room available and no alt accom locally. Bed very creaky, lots of noise from room above and road, and linen had definitely seen better days. No breakfast before 8.30, and this is continental brakfast only (ie tea, cereal and toast). There was no element of 'service' during my stay, a few apologies but no solutions.
I would stay here again ONLY as a last resort.
