Bedroom was clean,tidy, comfortable and quiet.
We ate in the Byzant restaurant. One meal, from specials menu, was excellent but the other was more average pub standard food.
The bar was ok but it would have been nice if the open fire was lit given the horrible weather that day.
The reception area, corridors and stairs looked a bit dated and in need of a freshen up. The pool looked good but we didn't try it.
Short walk into the town centre.
Would stay there again for a day or two if in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located right in the middle of Thomas Hardy country, this is possibly Dorset's friendliest hotel. Close to the centre of historic Shaftesbury, the hotel sits in its own grounds with its pristine lawns and surrounded by glorious Dorset countryside and the ample charms of Somerset and Wiltshire. Unspoiled, beautiful counties offering a wide range of attractions plus an abundance of rural peace and tranquility. Those not to be missed include Wilton House, Longleat, Stourhead, Stonehenge and of course Shaftesbury's very own Gold Hill. The Royal Chase is privately owned and part of a small chain of quality hotels in Dorset and Devon. Please look at our sister hotels, The Rembrandt Hotel in Weymouth and The Lord Haldon in Exeter. ... more less
