    The Kings Arms Hotel is situated in the heart of Dorchester and liked the size of the bedroom, breakfast was well organised with a prompt service.

    Evening Bar Staff and Restaurant staff appeared a little stressed and need be more relaxed with the hotel residents. The main meal did not come with the side salad or bread as requested and came half way through the meal however the food was to a very good standard. I was reimbersed for the cost of the main meal

    Very handy in central Dorchester. Nice big room. Staff very helpful. Good breakfast.

    Pillows & duvet rather utilitarian

    The staff from the top down were all first class. We ate in the hotel both nights that we were there and enjoyed the meals and the service. The breakfasts were as good as we have had anywhere.

    Convenient location, freindly service, good food.

    Windows did not stay open so it was hot in the room

  • Older travelers

    The staff were helpful. The room was clean and the bathroom ok. Breakfast was well cooked and apologies given for the delay in its arrival!

    As it was the warmest night of the year so far a fan (or air conditioning) in the bedroom would have made for a more comfortable night's sleep.

    the hotel is positioned centraly in Dorchester allowing guests eay access to the shopping and attractions in the town. Car parking can be difficult if the hotel is full.

    the hotel was in a good position in dorchester

    both of our windows would not stay in the up position, the beakfast in the morning i had a fulll english and the forgot to put food on it even after writing it down and the other breakfast was scramble eggs on toast this is a joke for food there was about 3 inches in diameter of scramble egg, 3 mouth fulls and the toast wasd just a big bigger than a 50 pence piece, not recomended.

    It was a convenient location with a reasonable price (when booked through Booked.net). The breakfast buffet was great and the hotel offered all the basics you would expect in this price range.

    The bath, in which I stood while showering, was slippery. I did slip. A friend, staying in a different room, had the same experience. When I put this to the front desk, on checking out, I was told that: had I read the information provided in the room, I would have known that bath mats were available on request. I should have read the room information, I should have properly assessed the surface of the bath before showering, and - even though I am neither elderly nor frail - I should have gone to reception to request a bath mat because leaving one in the bathroom, next to the slippery bath, is apparently not the more sensible option.

    I liked being able to come and go as Ipleased ,the wish of the staff that my stay was comfortable,nothing was too much trouble, avery enjoyable experience

  • Older travelers

    Room and bathroom were spacious if a little utilitarian. Central location in Dorchester with adequate parking. Access to local restaurants. Staff were generally pleasant and accomodating. Reasonable value at weekend break prices.

    The dining room was very much part of the bar area and more suited to bar meals than a rather pricier reataurant menu. General decor and seating was rather dark.

  • Older travelers
    6.0

    Food good

    Not usual standard smallroom, hard bed and water supply to shower irratic

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The room was large and extremely comfortable, staff were very friendly, breakfast was good and the decaf coffee was the best I have had in a long time

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Efficient reception if a little 'cool' i.e. a business welcome rather than a warm one.Very helpful in dealing with a situation when the car park was full and very helpful allowing use of car park.

    Disappointed that we could not have scones and tea on arrival.
