We went for a long weekend in February 2015; we were staying in Room 4, the Cranbourne Suite. On arrival, the staff were very polite, and tried to help us with storing our dog's food in a fridge (he has a special diet!). Our room was VERY spacious - the bath and shower were excellent, and there were plentiful supplies... More

We had a lovely 3 days in the Grosvenor, room was spacious, staff were very friendly, loved the décor. It felt like a great team effort. Breakfast was perfect. Cocktails not so good, little choice in the special price menu and... More

Room was spacious, great shower. Bar staff were friendly and accommodating as were the waiting staff in the restaurant. The food was of a high standard and the surroundings really stylish yet relaxing. Would definitely recommend.

If you look up the word 'Presumptuous' in the dictionary, it has Grosvenor Hotel as its meaning !! The room was very poor, my wife even stated that you would get a nicer room at a Travel Lodge. When we ask if we could upgrade our room as we were going to be there 2 nights, the receptionist simply said... More

The Grosvenor is a lovely hotel. Restaurant was very nice with good friendly service, that was attentive without ever being intrusive and a very nice menu. The rooms are well maintained and very homily. The bar itself is well stocked and has a very well put together drinks list. The management team were very friendly and helpful, with a good... More

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful country hotel. Our room was a pure delight. The bar and restaurant were lovely, try the cocktails! The staff were amazing throughout, so friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble. We will definitely return!

We really enjoyed the hotel portion of this stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a bathroom that was very modern. The staff was excellent and very helpful. Sadly, the restaurant is quite overpriced for the quality, but they did offer some yummy, tasty desserts which made up a bit for the lack of skill with the main courses.... More

Passing through Shaftesbury we decided to stay last minute and we're glad we did. Incredible rooms. Really spacious and we only had a standard room so goodness knows what the others are like! Great rain shower and Neals Yard soaps are a great addition. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was amazing. Try the wood roasted fish!... More
