Stayed for the night in a junior suite and had a very chilled and relaxing stay
The suite is really spacious and superbly equipped. The tea and coffee machine is virtually instant, as opposed to old fashioned kettle and sachet. It also boasted a top quality Iphone docking station, LCD TV by the bath and excellent bedding.
The decor is really stylish and modern, and it felt more like a London boutique hotel than being in a village in Dorset
Staff were all young, trendy and helpful
Restaurant was excellent and food was lovely, if only a litlle overpriced for such small portions (Don't go there when really hungry!) It would also benefit from discreet background music, as it lacked atmosphere when so quiet..
Cocktail bar was excellent and very relaxing
Highly recommended and would love to come back again in the summer to enjoy the sun loungers on our balcony
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Grosvenor Arms is newly refurbished, it is traditional yet stylish, relaxed yet ‘buzzy’, and open all day. There are 16 bedrooms to choose from: cosy double, spacious double, deluxe double, balcony double, or suites – each one is beautifully appointed and furnished, decorated in a style appropriate to one of Shaftesbury’s oldest inns, but complete with the modern facilities you expect. You are always welcome, for a drink in the bar, a cup of coffee in the conservatory, or a pizza from the wood oven. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the paved courtyard is always available for an alfresco lunch or drink. ... more less
