Shaftesbury heaven

I booked the hotel as I was attending a wedding in nearby Chicklade. As always I was running late and was aware of the parking in the public car park across the road. Not a problem for the very efficient receptionist. I checked and and changed and was in my way in 10 minutes! Great nights sleep followed by an awesome veggie breakfast, I'm a big meat eater but fancied a change. Overall a great stay, great location and even better hospitality.

Great Lunch Nice People

Visited on a Monday in June whilst on holiday and found the town to be relaxed and super friendly. Easy car parking. Lovely lunch at the Grosvenor hotel, nice food, varied selection and all staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel had a relaxed atmosphere with cool rustic decor and in the centre had a great enclosed courtyard with water fountain.

Then a look around the towns shops, most were independent traders with unique offerings and were so friendly and engaged with their customers.
Gold Hill was 10 seconds round the corner, pretty and just like the Hovis advert with a fab view.

If you like eating and shopping and enjoy looking around quaint old English towns with fab old buildings then Shaftesbury is ideal.

Wonderful old hotel

This is a lovely old hotel with fabulous service. We could not fault it. They were extremely helpful when we checked in. The breakfast was excellent. The location in the centre of Shaftesbury is perfect and the parking arrangement worked smoothly.

Great choice.

Lovely hotel, decorated in great taste. Friendly and relaxed. Food was fantastic. Make sure you don’t feel you would want a drink past 11:00 from the what is a lovely bar.. otherwise this place is highly recommended.
