We stayed here through a Mr and Mrs Smith hotel voucher. Our double room was very clean,spacious and comfortable. There was a huge bath and good power shower. Unfortunately our room was up several flights of stairs,which was okay for us,but if booking direct with the Hotel I would check this if you have a problem with stairs.The lady at...

Very comfortable, good sized rooms for a family. Friendly, excellent services. Great location in a beautiful town of the countryside. Nice stay for a weekend. Enjoy the breakfast and do the walking tours! Many pretty places to visit nearby by car as well.

We stayed for one night over the August bank holiday weekend. Being in the centre of town the hotel was easy to find and we were able to park right outside to unload. Parking is in the nearby supermarket car park using a permit supplied by the hotel. Car park has small spaces and is pretty tight. Take care if...

We purchased a voucher for a cream tea for 4 including a glass of sparkling wine and had the most amazing experience. The quantity and quality of our sandwiches, scones and desserts was unbelievable and our tea lasted from 1530 until 1800 hrs. This was worth considerably more than we paid and was one of our best afternoon tea experiences...

We found this hotel on the Mr & Mrs Smith website, and so we knew it would be good. We didn't realise just how good it would turn out to be. Situated centrally in the lovely town of Shaftesbury, it is perfect for a short stay. On arrival, we were thrilled to be upgraded to the suite in Room 4...

We spent a wonderful weekend at The Grosvenor Arms. The dog in our party was made to feel very welcome - as were we!! Very comfortable bed, a superb coffee machine and a wonderful shower - couldn't have asked for anything more from the room. The restaurant deserves a special mention - we dined there both nights and were treated...

We were allocated room 12 on the second floor overlooking the main road. Not a huge room, but adequate and spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable but pillows too soft. Only one chair so one of us had to sit on the bed which is not ideal. Good shower but controls on the wrong side, as you cannot turn it on...

When we arrived we were shown to one of their top floor rooms but it had steeply sloping ceilings (it was an attic room). We explained that my wife was quite claustrophobic and they were able to switch us to Room 15 on the second floor, which was very spacious and comfortable. The hotel is a very old building that...

The Grosvenor Arms is a great hotel with a warm welcoming feel to it. The rooms are spacious, clean and have all of the facilities you could ask for. Myself and my fiancé have stayed here a few times now and each time has been just as great as the last. The staff go the extra mile - I got...
