This is a lovely hotel, nice location in little town. The staff were friendly and the restaurant served great food. The room was really quite big, very clean and only downside was the room was very warm with the current hot weather conditions. I would return.

Everything was really excellent until breakfast. No member of staff was there when we arrived so sat at the same table that we had at dinner which was at the far end of the resturant. We were ignored, other guests were coming in and the waitress was taking their orders and every time we caught her eye, she just seemed to dash off into the kitchen. Eventually she presented us with a breakfast which we explained was not ours as she not even taken our order. The breakfast was for a table that had arrived long after us. It still took her some considerable time to come back to take our order. When the tea arrived, we had to ask for milk. The standard of the cooked breakfast was way below par. We were surprised by this as the dinner the night before was excellent. By the time we got our breakfast we had been in the resturant for 40 minutes. Several tables(that came in after us) had finished their meal and left by this time. There were also other tables like us that were having similar problems to us. It is a shame, because this totally spoilt an otherwise all the other excellent service.

Lovely, cosy, stylish hotel, nice vibes & decor, dog friendly, good food. Shaftesbury town is adorable and bedroom surprisingly quiet even right on high street. Tasty breakfast served in open courtyard or conservatory, lovely.
