Sue and Phil were excellent hosts. This converted chapel has been most tastefully converted with amazing views. Every home comfort had been provided for. We stayed in the West Room and slept in a queen sized bed with lovely crisp bedding and comfy pillows.

This is a top class B&B. Everything has been chosen with care, the decor, the bed linen, the towels, the breakfast - it is all impeccable. Our trip there was very brief but I would not hesitate to recommend it.

The room was well decorated and comfortable with good quality toiletries and thoughtful touches in the room. The guest lounge and the view were so impressive. The breakfast was the best we’ve had...

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.
