Having read other reviews we arrived not quite sure what to expect.
But, our room was clean and remarkably spacious for a family. The en-suite was a bit 'tired' but everything worked and it was perfectly adequate for a family.
The swimming pool was lovely and bigger than we'd anticipated.
The staff were brilliant, we needed to visit the local A&E during our trip and the hotel staff were caring and bothered about the welfare of our son! They couldn't do enough to help us. The hotel are definitely 'child friendly!'
The breakfast was lovely and once again the staff were helpful in providing food suitable for the children.
We were really pleased we'd stayed and would definitely revisit!
- 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.
