Wessex Royale

Situated in a prominent trading position within the town, the hotel benefits from high levels of tourist trade, with Dorchester being one of the main locations within Dorset’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hotel also benefits from local and function trade through hosting conferences, weddings and parties.

The stunning Georgian Grade II listed property has been extensively renovated in recent years, and has undergone a full refurbishment, now decorated to an extremely high standard. The hotel offers 29 ensuite guest bedrooms, a dining room and lounge bar which seat up to 64 guests, and a function room which has capacity for 70.

The current owner has independently owned and run the hotel since 2002 and has decided to sell in order to focus on other business ventures.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to grow a well-performing business in the heart of Dorset. They may wish to convert the property’s vacant gym space into additional letting rooms and re-introduce a trading restaurant service.

Stephen Champion, Director in Christie & Co’s Hotels team and based their Exeter office, is handling the sale and comments, “The Wessex Royale has an established reputation, appealing to both leisure and business guest due to its town centre location and proximity to Dorset’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is significant scope for a new operator to grow the business and we expect interest to come from a wide range of buyers.”
