Welcome to the capital of Dorset! The Junction Hotel is a traditional six bedroom coaching inn, located in the heart of this traditional market town on Great Western Road. Dorchester is an historic market town best known for its links with Thomas Hardy and his novel 'The Mayor of Casterbridge' and you can enjoy the ambience and atmosphere of Dorchester itself with its famous market every Wednesday. Other attractions include the Dinosaur Museum, Roman Town House, Thomas Hardy Cottage and the giant fort, just outside the town, dating from 3000BC. The heart and soul of the hotel remains the pub itself and there is plenty of opportunity to find a cosy corner in our traditional bar. Whatever time of day you pop into The Junction, there's plenty of atmosphere as customers tuck into the fine pub food or sample a selection of the superb choice of cask ales, lagers, wines and soft drinks. Hotel accommodation prices include our fantastic free breakfast.
