“Great overnight spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We stayed in late July here for one night. Diane and Ian were so friendly - offering us advice on where to go in town. Room huge for two of us and with very clean facilities. Would definately recommend.

We stayed here for 4 days as a family of 4 adults to be close for visiting family in Gillingham. The rooms were spotless. Fresh flowers, extra toiletries, dvd library for room etc. all made for a home from home. The breakfast was excellent and Ian and Diane even gave our grandson breakfast after his mum dropped him off while she went to work! Nothing too much trouble for Ian and Diane and we shall definitely be returning to this b and b and would recommend to anyone.

I stayed here in March 2012 for 1 month. It was spotlessly clean, quiet & warm & the food was excellent with Diane & Ian being some of the loveliest people anybody could ever meet. Its easy to find within walking distance of Shaftesbury town centre with all its attractions & facilities. I would DEFINITELY stay at The Holbrook Bed & Breakfast again and ABSOLUTELY recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice & clean with a choice of either family room, double, twin or single all with...

I stayed here 23 November 2012 to 26 November 2012. This was my second stay here and it was just as good as the first time!

You get a warm welcome and everything you need for your stay. Good quality, clean room, comfortable bed, refreshments, tv, hair dyer (for those that have hair!) and even the little touches such as nice toiletries are provided.

Breakfasts are flexible with a wide range of tasty options available. Simply nothing is too much trouble for Ian and Diane. Holbook B&B is a credit to them.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay with Diane and Ian. Though only for one night they gave us a very happy and friendly welcome. The accommodation is warm and spotless and the breakfasts are a real treat with everything on the menu you can think of.
Diane and Ian recommended a really good pub for us to have a meal during the evening and even booked a table for us. Nothing was too much trouble, and we felt as comfortable as if we were staying with friends.

Will recommend Holbrook to all our friends and family.

Room Tip: You always find an excellent B and B in the "Little Green Book"

I work around the country and have done for approx 20 years and viewing a project in Shaftesbury I came across this B&B. Although it was just for a 1 night stay I would easily rate it one of the most cosy, friendly and clean B&B establishments I have every had the pleasure to stay in. The owners Ian and Diane could not do enough for you to truly make this a home from home. My room had all the current up to date tea making facilities, digital tv and free wifi, there was ample parking and a good selection of take away restaurants and public houses only a stones throw away. The breakfast facilities are second to none and every need or requirement were catered for. Would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone and other members of our company are already booked in for other projects/works that we are carrying out in the area.

Room Tip: Stop at this B&B, you wont be disappointed
