I have been staying at the Chalet on business since 2011, and have always found the accommodation superb and would best describe the atmosphere as "Home From Home".
The breakfasts are cooked exactly to your requirements. You can really see that Anne and Doug have worked hard to offer 5 star accommodation at affordable prices. I have to agree with the other comments, this is the best B&B you could ever wish to stay at.

Anne and Doug are superb hosts who could not have done more to make our stay more welcoming and comfortable. Their attention to detail and the thoughtfulness and consideration for their guests is outstanding. This is truly the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Anne and Doug are both kind and friendly and will ensure that your your every comfort is met. Lovely rooms, very clean and cosy, super breakfasts and a super breakfast room. I highly recommend. Everything 5 star!

Thanks Anne & Doug for being great hosts (Great home made cookies, Anne!).
Excellent in all departments. eg :- Very clean room. Good breakfasts with wide enough choices.
Three of us have recently stayed in the Gold Room, which is very well appointed & just the right size for three.
I've used many B&Bs through the years & must say The Chalet comes out tops for me.
Of course Shaftesbury itself is a big bonus.

I stayed here on business for 2 nights and everything about the place is top class. The breakfast is outstanding, fruit, cereal and a cooked breakfast to your liking. The rooms are spotless and have a real homely feel to them. Anne and Doug are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Whenever i am in this area again i will be staying here again.

Some friends and us, so four, stayed here this past weekend. From the first meeting we knew we would enjoy staying at The Chalet. You couldn't ask for two more generous hosts as Doug and Anne. Both of Doug's suggestions for where to go on each day were followed up and we did have an exellent time. We stayed in the Gold Room - it was as clean as anywhere I have ever stayed - immaculate in fact. Shower was great as were the kit kats. Bed was extremely comfortable. Entry to our room was easy with no hassle - and as for the breakfasts - great choice available and boy, were they tasty!
If you're staying in Shaftesbury, on business or on holiday, you couldn't go anywhere better ... !

Room Tip: Our room (Gold Room) was fine - never heard a thing all night. Chickens quietly clucking in the morn...

This was the first time my sister and I had stayed in a B&B and were very impressed by the standard of welcome, cleanliness and breakfast that was offered at The Chalet. The hosts Doug and Anne were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The location so close to the town centre of Shaftesbury was excellent, a five minute walk. We stayed 4 nights and then came back for another night at the end of our stay in England. Thank you Doug and Anne. We think it will be hard to beat this experience in the future.

What can I say but excellent, excellent, excellent - about everything. Anne and Doug are so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Every one who runs a B&B should be like them. We stopped four nights in the Gold room. A lovely room - spacious, spotless, and the bathroom equipped with just about everything you need. Even though it's near a very busy road there was no traffic noise - just the birds (particularly the Chaffinch). The breakfast was delicious, with a choice of cooked breakfast - my favourite being the scrambled egg and smoked salmon. It's nice to be able to park up and leave the car and just a short walk into Shaftesbury centre - 5/10 minutes depending on your legs. And all for £70 a night - there's a discount for staying more than 3 nights. But it's only £75 if you don't. Amazing value for a 5 star stay. We would recommend the Chalet to anyone, not just our friends, and we will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: No tips because everything is perfect.
