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.

Great location

Smack in centre of town , shops and eateries .

Lovely hotel although slightly shabby with threadbare carpets and bubbling paintwork in the bathroom but aside from that nothing to criticise. Breakfast service and quality was great . We did however , receive an overnight parking fine because as far as I'm concerned, the lass on reception did not make it crystal clear ( she may have , in her mind , so maybe our mistake) that we MUST park behind the co-op and not on the other side . ... We had a Grosvenor parking permit on the dash board so council could have given them a call to warn us we were on the wrong side but no . Can't comment on food as we didn't have any aside from breakfast ... Bit pricey we thought so ate out . Late night revellers were noisy but all in all would stay again without a doubt.
