We stayed for a long weekend at the very end of July. The hotel and Shaftesbury are both charming, and the modernisation of the hotel has been carried out imaginatively. We ate in the restaurant both nights. Both meals were excellent, even though the kitchen was coping with a big family party the second night. All the service was efficient, friendly and quick. Our only concern is that our original room allocation had a shower, not a bath tub, which was not clear from the reservation, but this was rectified very quickly and without fuss. Our bedroom could have been better with easy chairs,though the upright chairs were good for our posture, but there is a nice lounge downstairs. The window also rattled a lot when open, but this is to be expected in an old building. We also liked Shaftesbury, and the museums at the Abbey and Gold Top were both interesting.
- 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
