The BEST WESTERN Kings Arms Hotel in Dorchester is a renowned local landmark. And here's why! In the centre of Dorchester, the hotel was built in 1720, but retains many interesting and classical Georgian features to this day. It's also conveniently placed for both business and leisure pursuits, whether you're meeting colleagues nearby or taking in Thomas Hardy-related sites within three miles of this grand accommodation. We're only eight miles away from the seaside too, so there's more than enough to float your boat! The building now offers smartly decorated and tastefully presented rooms throughout. Our comfortable Bistro bar serves a good selection of wines and a real tempting choice of dining. Business users have access to a pleasant meeting room when duty calls, and everyone will benefit from ample on-site free parking. Dare you miss out on Dorset? Enjoy your stay.
