The Old Chapel B&B
Ranked #8 of 23 Shaftesbury B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Have just returned from a 7 night stay at this lovely B&B. Without doubt this was THE BEST we have ever stayed in. A beautiful place, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, luxury bathroom and hosts who go the extra mile to make sure your stay is wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, and attention to detail is fantastic. A lovely, quiet, atmospheric place to stay, close to all amenities - throw in a LOVELY breakfast and what more could you wish for?

I stayed here for work and only wished I could of stayed longer. Beautiful rooms, comfy beds and nice showers. Perfect after a days work. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. Breakfast was also just as impressive. We had a wonderfully warm welcome.

Just returned back from a four night break. Found this unusual b & b on line and was pleasantly surprised. There are two rooms only so small and friendly. Attention to detail was exceptional. Lovely six foot beds, nice linen and big fluffy towels. Nothing too much trouble. Sue even offered to wash my trousers when I fell over in mud. Breakfast was superb. Nice pub about two minutes away if you don't want to venture far. Ten minutes walk into town. Phil very knowledgeable always ready with information. Will definitely return when visiting again. Keep up the good work and wish you every success.

Where to start and where to end. One thing I can say is that this place is one of the most fantastic places I have been for a long time.! everything is so well done and the rooms and house was so perfect and clean!!

The two owners (husband and wife) really got you to feel at home and are really worth to have a good talk with maybe over tea or coffee!

The breakfast in the morning was MAGNIFICENT, I have been to SAS, Hilton + many others but nothing could competet with this perfectly balanced breakfast with fresh fruits, yoghurt and Full english breakfast..

The only thing I can say is that you will not be disapointed when staying at the Old Chapel

Room Tip: No matter what room you take you will not be disapointed..!! Everything is really in world class.!

We felt so spoilt having taken both of the two rooms that are offered, and were amazed to find that we had a whole floor to ourselves - dining room, sitting room, and an extra relaxing room. We had privacy in this beautiful, light, sumptuous chapel, as well as help on every level from Sue and Phillip if we needed it - advice, delicious welcome tea and cake that was still warm from the oven, chilling the champagne we brought, extensive breakfast to last us the day, and their recommendation of Chutneys, an Indian restaurant in Shaftesbury that was fantastic. I had the tandoori talibut and am still dreaming about it. It was a joy from start to finish.

We were immediately made to feel welcome by our hosts Sue and Phil. We had a wonderful stay in their fabulous and extremely stylish converted Chapel. Everything was of the highest standard and they had truly thought of everything a traveller could require. I can honestly say the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the linen was of superb quality. Sue presented us with the most amazing breakfast every morning and am only sorry I have a small appetite as I wanted to try everything. Literally cannot praise their B & B enough and what a charming couple.

This converted Chapel has been done with meticulous care. Our bedroom was extremely cosy. The decor throughout the Chapel was stylish reflecting the flair of the owners in this unique conversion to a family home as well as for paying guests.
Attention to detail for the comfort of their guests was paramount.
The award for breakfast was well deserved.

Room Tip: Both good. The West room has a better view.
