We descended on mass due to a family christening. Amongst our group were 4 young children. We felt very welcome and comfortable due to the friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast was plentiful and good quality, service was excellent. There were only 2 high chairs and we needed 3 between us so we did have to juggle babies on laps. Also the pool, which had been the main draw card, was out of action from Sat to Monday (when we left) which was disappointing. They were working hard to fix it. Our family room was plenty big enough for 4 of us. The room was rather warm, however we borrowed a fan for the second night which made sleeping more comfortable. All in all the hotel represents good value for money and provided us with a comfortable stay.

Close to the centre of historic Shaftesbury, the hotel sits in its own grounds with its pristine lawns and surrounded by glorious Dorset countryside and the ample charms of Somerset and Wiltshire. Unspoiled, beautiful counties offering a wide range of attractions plus an abundance of rural peace and tranquility. Those not to be missed include Wilton House, Longleat, Stourhead, Stonehenge and of course Shaftesbury's very own Gold Hill.
