Guest Reviews

Excellent in every way - Aquila Heights is an ideal place to stay for exploring Dorchester and surrounding countryside. The rooms I've stayed in were large and airy, spotlessly clean and well furnished, and the owners, Derek and Wendy went out of their way to make my stays enjoyable. The food is excellent with plenty of choice and I would thoroughly recommend Aquila Heights. The views over towards Maiden Castle are amazing.
