Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by pleasant friendly staff, who were very helpful. The room was clean, well presented and welcoming. Eating both nights in the restaurant, the food was superb freshly cooked. Satff extremely helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble. The pool was on the small side but adequate, a leisure pool not a pool for doing lots of swimming. Several families were staying so it was ideal for them. Walking into Shaftesbury, about 10 minutes. Beautiful views and a lovely town. I would certainly use it again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located right in the middle of Thomas Hardy country, this is possibly Dorset's friendliest hotel. 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. The Royal Chase is privately owned and part of a small chain of quality hotels in Dorset and Devon. Please look at our sister hotels, The Rembrandt Hotel in Weymouth and The Lord Haldon in Exeter. ... more less
