About the hotel

Welcome to The Grosvenor Arms – the heartbeat of the famous Dorset town of Shaftesbury and is located at an only couple of minutes walk from Shaftesbury Abbey . We recently restored The Grosvenor Arms many original architectural and design features have been restored, and a whole new philosophy has been introduced. We are focused on the highest levels of hospitality; on playing a full role in the local community, and on supporting and encouraging local suppliers.

There are 16 bedrooms at The Grosvenor Arms in Dorset. All rooms feature tea and coffee facilities, flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi. Public parking is available in a location close to the hotel and is free of charge. Choose from: cosy double, spacious double, deluxe double, junior suite or suite – each one is beautifully appointed and furnished, decorated in a style appropriate to one of Shaftesbury’s oldest inns, but complete with the modern facilities you expect. There are five different areas to the Grosvenor restaurant – the main dining area, two smaller seating areas, and the pizza/delicatessen area for less formal occasions and the conservatory and courtyard for alfresco dining. There is a wood-burning oven where you can see your pizza or shoulder of pork being cooked. The bar at The Grosvenor Arms in Shaftesbury is open all day. There is an open fireplace, comfortable, aged leather seating and wood-panelled walls, in a large, flexible area overlooking the courtyard.

Nicely looked after property with interesting and relaxing courtyard area, bar and restraunt.
