Last minute booking, great service
Had to check in after midnight, due to unforseen circumstances, the door is locked at 10pm, I phoned when I got there & I assume, it was the owner that let me in, my twin en-suite room was spotlessly clean, he put the heating on for me, breakfast was included, but by the time I finally went to sleep at 7am, I missed breakfast altogether, so can't comment on that, plenty of tea & coffee in the room & sachets in reception should you need more, a hair dryer is also provided in the room, as is free wifi, there was a TV in my room, but I couldn't get it to work, bit annoying, but nobody to sort it out in the early hours obv, on check out, the receptionist followed me outside (went to have a smoke) to ask me when I was checking out as they needed to clean the room, thought that was a bit rude, all in all, very happy with it overall, would definitely would stay again & recommend

Stay at Dorset Hotel 1st October to 4th October
Comfortable room and an excellent morning breakfast. Staff welcoming and helpful.
Eric, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
Short stay in Ryde
Convenient hotel in Ryde. Easy walking distance to the centre of town with some good restaurants in the centre. Hotel itself is rather tired and needs to have a refurbishment. Furniture in the room was tasty with broken handles and poorly fitting doors to the wardrobe, the curtains were poorly fitting. The shower was an electric shower with fluctuating temperature which meant sometimes it was too hot or cold. Breakfast choice was good

Dorset hotel
Really enjoyed my stay at the Dorset hotel, we were their only 1 night for the scooter rally but the staff made us feel very welcome. The room was clean & spacious & comfortable king size bed. The breakfast was delicious & lots of choice. Great location. Definitely will be returning next year, hopefully for 2/3 nights.
