Hotel was an old and tired 1970's property that looked like a Mosque more than a hotel. Actual property looked nothing like pictures shown on booking.com
Service, Horrible Breakfast, Overpriced Internet.
Overall a great experience - private feeling, clean room, nice view, friendly staff, good location with the best mee goreng I have ever eaten just around the corner! Not too far to the main stretch of Georgetown, around a 10 minute walk; this location also makes it much better for escaping Georgetown to drive around the island as the traffic isn't quite as hectic.
Small carpark if you rent a car - but was only a problem once in 4 nights
The view and room. The food was nice as well. A major plus point for Dorsett is the warmth of the staff.
The parking facility is attrocious. Not many parking bays. No lift service and for those with prams and heavy luggage, this lack of lifts is sad.
The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful.
The rooms on most of the floors had not been renovated. They had a strong musty smell with dirty carpets and mold in the bathrooms.
Breakfast serving (buffet) is not up to a 4-star hotel rating. Limited parking space.
