Some friends and us, so four, stayed here this past weekend. From the first meeting we knew we would enjoy staying at The Chalet. You couldn't ask for two more generous hosts as Doug and Anne. Both of Doug's suggestions for where to go on each day were followed up and we did have an exellent time. We stayed in...

This was the first time my sister and I had stayed in a B&B and were very impressed by the standard of welcome, cleanliness and breakfast that was offered at The Chalet. The hosts Doug and Anne were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The location so close to the town centre of Shaftesbury was excellent, a five minute walk. We stayed...

What can I say but excellent, excellent, excellent - about everything. Anne and Doug are so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Every one who runs a B&B should be like them. We stopped four nights in the Gold room. A lovely room - spacious, spotless, and the bathroom equipped with just about everything you need. Even though it's near a very...

We stay in over 50 hotels, guest houses and B&Bs every year, and the Chalet simply can't be faulted. The rooms are spotless and comfortable, with everything a traveller needs - including fresh milk for tea and coffee. We stayed two nights as a base to undertake a magazine article on the area. The Chalet is only a few minutes...

We can't say enough good things about our stay at the Chalet! We stayed in all three rooms and they were all spacious, clean and decorated beautifully. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious! They were made from local produce and the eggs were straight from the coop outside. But above all was the hospitality. Anne and Doug were so lovely and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Chalet. Anne and Doug made us very welcome - nothing is too much trouble. The beds were very comfortable and it was really quiet. The breakfast is amazing! Lovely fresh fruit, etc. and a wide choice of cooked breakfasts. Nice to have parking space too.

We have stayed in loads of B&Bs and this is one of the best and excellent value for money. We were in the Gold Room which is really comfortable - light, warm, clean and spacious with the welcome addition of two easy chairs. Anne and Doug are very good hosts and the breakfasts are beautifully cooked and served. Dont be...

We have stayed with Anne and Doug three times in the last three months, a family matter needed return visits. You really cannot fault the hospitality in any way. Rooms, food, cleanliness and the very warm welome of tea and cake just the icing on the cake so to speak! We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Shaftesbury, on our...

We never think twice where to stay in Shaftesbury as in our opinion The Chalet is 5 star. This is our third stay at the Chalet and Anne and Doug always give such a warm welcome and each time it seems better and better if that is possible. We have stayed in the Gold room and the Lavender room and...

We stayed just for one night. We were picking up our son for his half term break and were only looking for basic accomodation, but we found ourselves just like at home! Anne and Doug are excellent hosts, offering really nice accomodation, excellent English breakfast, all kinds of details like cookies and hot drinks on our late arrival, and charming...
