The location is perfect - really peaceful and quiet area near the town centre. The proprietor is a really kind man - helpful and polite. The rooms are clean and bright and really cozy. The breakfast is really delicious and diverse. I highly recommend The Bay Tree in Dorchester. I had a wonderful weekend here, stayed for 3 nights.
