3AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
George Albert Hotel, Wardon Hill Evershot, Dorchester, DT2 9PW

Simply the Guest Awards Winner


Based on 100% genuine guest reviews in our 2012 awards.

Located on the A37 amidst the rolling Dorset countryside between Yeovil and Dorchester, including complimentary internet and widely recognised restaurant. This private family owned hotel offers all the modern facilities you would expect from a new hotel, whilst still retaining a distinctive friendly atmosphere. To compliment the hotel there is a world class shooting
ground which is the countries largest with over 450 fully automatic traps, catering for all abilities with a qualified instructor on hand to offer advice. The national motor sport licensed kart circuit has an 815 metre track offering visitors the opportunity to experience the speed, excitement and drama of the sport; both activities are ideally positioned adjacent to the hotel. In addition, the Weymouth & Portland sailing venue is only 20 miles away.

All rooms are en-suite, air conditioned and finished to a high standard, with soft pillows and comfy beds you are assured of a great nights sleep. The modern décor and elegant furnishings have been chosen to create bright airy rooms, providing a high level of comfort with all the facilities you would expect from a hotel of this calibre.

For a taste of fine dining there is the Kings AA Rosette awarded Restaurant, where attentive waiters and head chef promise you a great meal from a modern British menu using fresh locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, and are passionate about providing seasonality and variety to make your dining experience one to remember. The lounge is a great place to sit in comfort, read a paper, plan your day or just enjoy the atmosphere. With its own licensed bar you can enjoy hot and cold drinks as well as alcoholic beverages and snacks which are served throughout the day.

This is the ideal venue to host an event, whether it is your wedding day, conference, business meeting or training day. Offering everything you need whatever the occasion, from civil wedding ceremonies for up to 350 guests, wedding breakfast and evening reception, to conference packages which combines modern needs with great food. The hotel guarantees an efficient service from friendly staff that are on hand to offer advice and practical assistance at all stages of you booking.

Within a short drive you can visit picturesque country villages and towns both large and small; Dorset's celebrated Jurassic Coast and wonderful sandy beaches. Dorchester has much to offer from world famous historic sites and museums to attractive gardens, interesting shops and welcoming pubs - a great place to spend the day. The traditional seaside resort of Weymouth has something for the old and young, the fine Georgian seafront and fantastic golden sandy beach are firm favourites and the old harbour is a great place to watch the world go by. The bustling towns of Bournemouth and Poole are a little further afield, with their lovely sandy blue flag beaches and many other family attractions.

Please note: it is advisable to reserve tables for dinner especially at weekends, if required, in advance.

Please note Due to its location the hotel is a popular location for weddings & parties.

Great price at a great hotel
A family of six recently stayed at the George Albert Hotel. This small hotel provides good friendly service and nice subtle decorated rooms.
We were pleased with the quality of the rooms, the en-suite bathroom has a nice touch.
There were quality bath towels and toiletries provided(no toothbrush and toothpaste, but we brought our own), the over all bathroom was clean and tidy with a nice touch.
The bathroom door was a little annoying with an automatic door closer.
Plenty of room to put luggage and a big wardrobe for clothes. However the beds seems a little too soft for our liking, had a backache waking up!
We were slightly unhappy about the the little kettle in the room. We understand the area has a lot of limescale in the water, but further more cleaning in the kettles would be nice!
The buffet breakfast was good and tasty, offered a good choice!
We were overall very happy with the hotel, and would definitely recommend it!

Absolutely fantastic hotel with 5 star quality rooms and excellent customer service from staff. Meal was a la carte and one of the best I've ever tasted. Would definately stay here again if I was in the area.10/10 well done.

Good stay let down by bed
Stayed at the George Albert previously but this time the bed in the room we had was way to hard to be comfortable. Would stay again but will bring a mattress topper which is something we tend to do for longer stays but not normally for one night stays.

Excellent hotel, great value for money.
Booked at short notice a double room with single occ, hotel was in affluent relaxing surroundings, the room comfort and cleanliness were second to none. The bathroom facilities were spotlessly clean and it was a full size bath, not a 3/4 bath as found in most hotels. I booked a late night sandwich and all the ingredients were incredibly fresh. I would recommend this hotel to everybody.
