“A top-quality B&B”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stayed four nights in The Old Chapel for a family wedding in nearby Motcombe, and can heartily endorse what other reviewers have said. Everything is top quality - from the bed linen to the bath towels to the breakfasts. Not only was our comfortable room (and bathroom) spotlessly clean, it was very quiet during the night too. We were very appreciative of the friendliness of our hosts who were very helpful in many ways. We recommend The Old Chapel without hesitation.

On par with a 5* hotel but with a more attentive and personal welcome, the Chapel really is something to look forward to! The hosts are such a lovely couple that are so thoughtful and attentive that you truly feel spoilt and utterly relaxed after a stay. With two stylish and spotlessly clean rooms, delicious cake and drinks on arrival, the most splendid breakfast with locally sourced products and such a beautiful building in a great location, we certainly cannot wait to go back!

Many thanks Sue and Phillip :-)

In view of all the other enthusiastic reviews, it scarcely needs saying, but: this is an outstandingly good B&B. We spent four very good days here whilst revisiting Dorset after an interval of six years.

For special mention, we'd pick out four things in particular: the friendly, but not intrusive, welcome, and the subsequent interest in what we had been doing; the very large and comfortable bed; the excellent breakfast; the wonderful view across the Blackmore Vale from the visitors' sitting area.

If you're visiting the Shaftesbury area, and don't mind walking into the town centre for your evening meal (though the pub just a few yards down the road seems to do good pub food too) then it's not easy to see how you'll do better than to stay at The Old Chapel.

I arrived in Shaftesbury for an early and checked in with no problem. The place is lovely, airy and bright. I stayed in the West room (this B&B has only 2 double rooms) it had a massive bed and super clean. Lovely bathroom with nice toiletries. Plenty of choices at breakfast time with local sourced and quality ingredients. Fabulous hosts they could not do more to help and make you feel comfortable. Perfect! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: only two rooms, both excellent

Stayed in February and were delighted with the beautiful room, which was extremely comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. breakfast was a real treat in the beautiful dining room. This was a perfect stay and would definately return.

It is quite rare in my experience these days to come across a hotel or B&B that is rated 5 Star and find that it lives up to such a rating, but that was the case with The Old Chapel.

There is little that I can add that has not been adequately covered by previous reviewers. With only two rooms, this a boutique hostelry in every sense of the word.

The conversion of this old chapel for a start gives it the basis of being a stay in something quite different and the manner and detail of the conversion simply mean that from the moment you walk through the front door, there is not the remotest chance of you ever experiencing that sinking feeling that you have arrived in the wrong place.

Don’t take my word for it. If you are anywhere near the Shaftsbury area and need accommodation, this is the place to stay. Comfort, style, great hosts in Sue and Philip, outstanding breakfasts….the list goes on. It really does not get much better than this. Enjoy it while you can and before the secret gets out.

A weekend stay the memories of which will linger for some time to come…..

Amazing service, food, room, views. Could not find fault if I tried! Stayed for a business meeting nearby and found The Old Chapel far exceeded the comfort and service that most high end hotels offer! Would not hesitate to recommend.
