We stayed here despite the adverse reviews. This was a good, clean hote., OK, so NOT the Ritz, but very adequate. Good sized bed, clean room and the food in the restaurant was varied and appetising.
We had a lovely welcome when we arrived and were made to feel welcome throughout our stay.
Do not listen to all the other reviews, and give this hotel a try, it does not deserve the adverse reviews listed here! They are working hard to develop the service and care about the guests.
- 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
