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.

My wife and I spent a night at the Holbrook Bed and Breakfast and found our room spacious and spotlessly clean with everything provided from plentiful tea, coffee and biscuits to shower gel and shampoo. Our breakfast was beautifully cooked and plentiful and we found Diane and Ian great hosts being extremely friendly and helpful. We intend to explore the... More

Stayed at Holbrook over the weekend. Diane & Ian were excellent hosts. We and our precious bicycles were all safely catered for. Superb breakfast and we were grateful as four cyclists with machines, to have our pride and joy cycles stored securely and provided with a superb breakfast. Many thanks.

Travelled from Southampton to Shaftesbury for a party so wanted a cheap overnight stay. The Holbrook B&B ticked all the boxes for us. Owners were very polite and professional. Comfortable over night stay with a great section for breakfast. Wifi, TV, ensuite, off road parking, what more could you ask for?!

The difference between acceptable and enjoyable accommodation is usually the service and it was the case here. Both Diane and Ian are really friendly, give good advice. The extra thing on arrival was a small jug of fresh milk for teas. In the breakfast room (lovely breakfast), they have a Uk map and a word map with pins for residents... More
