“Super B & B”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Chalet. Anne and Doug made us very welcome - nothing is too much trouble. The beds were very comfortable and it was really quiet. The breakfast is amazing! Lovely fresh fruit, etc. and a wide choice of cooked breakfasts. Nice to have parking space too.

We have stayed in loads of B&Bs and this is one of the best and excellent value for money. We were in the Gold Room which is really comfortable - light, warm, clean and spacious with the welcome addition of two easy chairs. Anne and Doug are very good hosts and the breakfasts are beautifully cooked and served. Dont be put off by its proximity to the main road - it means its easy to get to and you can't hear the traffic. Centre of Shaftesbury is just a 5 min walk.

We have stayed with Anne and Doug three times in the last three months, a family matter needed return visits. You really cannot fault the hospitality in any way. Rooms, food, cleanliness and the very warm welome of tea and cake just the icing on the cake so to speak!
We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Shaftesbury, on our next visit it will be like retuning to very welcome friends. Thankyou Anne and Doug!

We never think twice where to stay in Shaftesbury as in our opinion The Chalet is 5 star.

This is our third stay at the Chalet and Anne and Doug always give such a warm welcome and each time it seems better and better if that is possible.

We have stayed in the Gold room and the Lavender room and the attention to detail is wonderful, everything you think you need is provided.

We have stayed in many hotels and can honestly say some were not of the same standard of comfort and cleanliness. We must not forget to mention the breakfast, the selection and choice is wonderful. We have actually booked another three stays this year and are looking forward to them. Anne & Doug are a really wonderful couple who cannot do enough for you.

We stayed just for one night. We were picking up our son for his half term break and were only looking for basic accomodation, but we found ourselves just like at home! Anne and Doug are excellent hosts, offering really nice accomodation, excellent English breakfast, all kinds of details like cookies and hot drinks on our late arrival, and charming hospitality for a very reasonable price. We would really recommend this lovely Bed & Breakfast for anyone travelling to Shaftesbury.

We travelled to Shaftesbury because we have a daughter in a school located very near. We booked three nights at The Chalet to stay the weekend in a room the three of us. We have been like if we where at home, nice room, very confortable beds and bathroom, nice temperature and everything is very clean. Also the breakfast is very nice specially the fresh fruit and the scrambel eggs.
Anne and Doug really take care about their guests, thank you very much for your attention and your care. We really felt as we where at home away from home.

I just wanted to let others know what a really lovely experience I had staying at The Chalet. The owners were so welcoming and pleasant. Mine was the Lavender room - a tranquil blend of lavender and sage green - and it was beautifully laid out, warm and welcoming, with Wi-Fi, TV and hot drinks I could make for myself. I slept like a log and had an excellent choice of cooked breakfasts available, from which I chose omelette made with eggs fresh from the chickens, Greek yogurt and fresh fruit, all topped off with toast, home made jams and a cafetiere of good strong coffee. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chalet to anyone wishing to stay in the Shaftesbury area. It's also a great base from which to visit some important sites of interest, like Stonehenge, Old Wardour Castle, Shaftesbury Abbey and Salisbury Cathedral, to name but a few.

Room Tip: The Lavender Room was lovely, spacious and quiet.
