I have stayed here for many weeks over the past couple of years. I cannot recommend it highly enough, the room that I stay in is always clean and tidy, it has a small flat screen TV with freeview, a nice en-suit, tea and coffee facilities and a comfy single bed. The hosts and owners Ian and diane are a... More

Having just spent 10 nights at this B&B over a 19 day period, I can highly recommend ‘Holbrook’ as one of the very best places to stay. Both Ian and Diane are fantastic hosts, and certainly go the extra mile or two to ensure that their guests have a comfortable stay with them. My first two nights were spent in... More

We stayed at The Holbrook for a week recently while our house was being attacked by builders. It is warm and comfortable and situated close to the centre of Shaftesbury so that even in the middle of the winter it is easy to walk to one of Shaftesbury's many pubs or restaurants. The room we had was neatly furnished and... More

Easy to find as located on A350 upon entering Shaftesbury but in a quiet area apart from regular, daytime traffic. Most welcoming and tea and coffee facilities replenished daily. Very comfortable room, great breakfast choice, ideal for Shaftesbury town and major route access. An excellent choice for visiting this area of Dorset.

A warm and friendly welcome was afforded us upon arrival at the Holbrook B&B with Hosts Diane & Ian.Our allocated room was of a high standard, spotlessly clean with first class facilities. A substantial breakfast was order of the day and not to be missed. Enjoyed the whole stay at the Holbrook, highly recommended. Many thanks to Diane & Ian.

Very clean and comfortable with friendly hosts and a great breakfast with plenty of choice. The whole place seemed to have been recently refurbished and was very attractive. Very convenient location for Shaftesbury town and surrounding countryside. Highly recommended.
