Premier Inn Dorchester

Certificate of Excellence

In the historic town's new Brewery Square development, you'll have business, leisure and heritage right on your doorstep. You could set sail at Olympic watersports venue Weymouth and Portland. Or hang out with the kings of the swingers at Monkey World. And if it's the right time of year, fire up your engine at the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Then retreat to our stylish restaurant, spacious rooms and extra comfy beds. Please note that our car parking is first come first served and limited spacing, park outside reception on arrival and reception can assist you further. Accessible rooms have a low bath with support. Wet rooms with a walk in shower can be allocated on request. Please contact reception with your booking number should you require a wet room. We look forward to seeing you!

Hi, We are thinking of having a holiday there next June. Could you please tell me if the accessible double rooms have wetrooms? Thank You.
Hello, We have 4 accessible rooms at this hotel, 2 of which have wet rooms, (walk in shower and no bath). If you wish to book a wet room just book an accessible room as you normally would, then phone our reception team with your booking reference number and we will do the best we can to get you a wet room for your stay. We look forward to seeing you. Many thanks, Leah Samways
