Located right in the middle of Thomas Hardy country, this is possibly Dorset's friendliest hotel. Close to the centre of historic Shaftesbury, the hotel sits in its own grounds with its pristine lawns and surrounded by glorious Dorset countryside and the ample charms of Somerset and Wiltshire. Unspoiled, beautiful counties offering a wide range of attractions plus an abundance of rural peace and tranquility. Those not to be missed include Wilton House, Longleat, Stourhead, Stonehenge and of course Shaftesbury's very own Gold Hill. The Royal Chase is privately owned and part of a small chain of quality hotels in Dorset and Devon. Please look at our sister hotels, The Rembrandt Hotel in Weymouth and The Lord Haldon in Exeter.

Convenient location for trip to Shaftesbury for the New Year. Breakfast was superb and staff very friendly. Ample parking on site and hotel has a lot of character still retained in the older parts. Rooms and bathrooms were spacious.

Very comfortable and pleasant stay (as usual) with very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast made to order, swift but not rushed, and nothing is too much trouble.Highly recommend the Royal Chase for a stay in North Dorset.
