The hosts were very accommodating and my room was spotless with stylish décor. Little touches such as home-made biscuits went the extra mile... Didn't eat but watched whilst food came out and it looked exquisite !!

Thoughtful staff -I arrived too late for food but they rustled up a steak sandwich and glass of wine -superb, great value and very well received. My room had all facilities I needed including a toweling robe and posh toiletries. I especially like being able to make coffee with real milk rather than UHT. I have stayed here three or... More

Best best hotel and restaurant. Has a real family atmosphere, hosts are brilliant, nothing too much trouble. Feels like their home, sharing with you. Great location with offstreet parking for your car. Quiet neighbourhood and wonderful access to all of Dorset.

This small hotel offers excellent service and luxurious facilities. The main attraction is the chef who produces superb delicious food. The owners are very welcoming and their attention to detail is paramount. An excellent place to stay and eat in Shaftesbury Dorset

I heard the restaurant is excellent however I didn't have time to dine here, I did have the breakfast however and it was very good. I will definitely return the next time... More

A pleasant hotel with a somewhat old fashioned feel that bordered on being simply old. The main issue for us was the total lack of atmosphere both in terms of the welcome (impersonal) and the ambiance (stifled). Whilst appreciating it was early on the Saturday evening when we came down to the bar (about 7pm) there was no other guest... More

Simply some of the best service and food I have ever eaten. Loved this place. We will be returning. Thought the prices were very resonable for the food they had created and cooked. The wine selection was very good
