Just finished reading through some of the more critical reviews on here and I have to say I am amazed. I just spent the night here for a family celebration and have to say it was excellent. The staff were superb; helpful, professional and very friendly.
The grounds are lovely. The rooms my inlaws and myself (with wife and 2 kids) stayed in were immaculate, of good size and decor with easy access to possibly the UK's warmest swimming pool!
The restaurant exceeded my expectations both the evening meal and breakfast were delicious, offering an excellent range of vegetarian options.
In all an excellent stay. Highly recommended....
- 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
