A good nights sleep
Second time we have stayed.
The was pub 6 miles from Dorchester out in the countryside. Beautiful views. Very quiet. Staff were friendly and efficient, rooms were spacious, clean and warm comfortable bed. Powerful shower with large bath. Breakfast was good, cereals, juices, full english toast, tea and coffee were fantastic.
Wonderfully Refreshing Stay
Our single night at The Brace of Phesants was an absolute pleasure.
Having eventually found and entered the building, we were met and shown our room. The courtesy and service demonstrated was just perfect and gave us the relaxed start to our stay that was so needed. The room was wonderful - ensuite with the biggest bath we'd ever seen. Over the next 18 hours we were treated to a level of service, food and accommodation that one might expect from a much more expensive establishment. Our evening meal and breakfast were wonderful. I would say that no matter how good the facilities, this was only enhanced by the courteous, friendly and helpful staff, where we were made to feel like nothing was too much trouble. It may only have been a very short overnight stay but we left refreshed and relaxed, ready to start the week with renewed vigour. Many thanks - we would love to come back.
