Due to a delayed flight and some average navigation skills we arrived at the Old Chapel a long while after bed time and were greeted at the door by two very fresh faces who acted as if it was a more social time of day. From the beautifully decorated and sumptuously comfortable room to the delicious and varied breakfast this... More

Only 2 rooms available and our twin was excellent with lots of those thoughtful touches i.e. toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, including decaffeinated coffee with fresh milk provided daily. Room very clean, with lovely bedding. Location quiet and parking right outside the chapel. Warmly greeted and offered tea and home made cake. Sue and Philip very pleasant and chatty... More

We recently spent a very comfortable night at The Old Chapel B&B with a warm welcome from the Owners Sue and Phillip who have renovated the building beautifully and we can only confirm the comments of the previous reviewers. The room was excellent with many thoughtful touches, the views superb and the breakfast delicious. We can't recommend it highly enough.... More

A few minutes from the centre of the historic, hillside town of Shaftesbury, the Old Chapel offers breathtaking views over the glorious surrounding countryside. The good taste of the owners and their attention to the detail of accommodating guests are evident throughout the Old Chapel.

Highly recommend staying at the Old Chapel. Made to feel very welcome by the owners, the room was large and well appointed. Great views over Dorset countryside. The breakfast was absolutely top notch - huge, top quality, lots of care and attention taken by the owners.

From the moment you are welcomed into this beautifully converted chapel to be welcomed by tea and chocolate tart you know you are staying somewhere special. I could go on about the views from the lounge, the gorgeous room, the wonderful breakfast (I recommend the eggs Benedict) and friendly hosts but suffice to say if you are visiting Shaftesbury then...

We stayed for three nights at this very comfortable guest house. Sue and Philip are very friendly and there are so many extra touches such as water and fresh milk in the room. It is so lovely and quiet and just a short but steep hill walk into town where there are many pubs and restaurants. We loved the room... More

We stayed four nights in The Old Chapel for a family wedding in nearby Motcombe, and can heartily endorse what other reviewers have said. Everything is top quality - from the bed linen to the bath towels to the breakfasts. Not only was our comfortable room (and bathroom) spotlessly clean, it was very quiet during the night too. We were... More

On par with a 5* hotel but with a more attentive and personal welcome, the Chapel really is something to look forward to! The hosts are such a lovely couple that are so thoughtful and attentive that you truly feel spoilt and utterly relaxed after a stay. With two stylish and spotlessly clean rooms, delicious cake and drinks on arrival,... More
