The Grosvenor Arms has been an inn since Medieval times. The original timber framed building was a busy coaching inn, originally The Red Lion, it was bought by the Grosvenor family and re-named The Grosvenor Arms in 1820. The rooms incorporate the best of the old building while remaining stylish and modern, with free Wi-Fi and an iPod Dock.
Shaftesbury, famous as ‘Shaston’ in Thomas Hardy’s novels, has long been known as the gateway to the South West. It is well positioned on the edge of the historic Cranborne Chase, the most beautiful of English Countryside.
The famous Gold Hill is but 100m away, and within striking distance are many historic houses, gardens, museums and even Stonehenge.

Customer Rating: Mrs Griffiths, Tonbridge We had a lovely break at this hotel, the food and service was excellent, the hotel was very clean. The only thing I would say is that we were supposed to be upgraded free of charge to a superior room. Whilst our room was lovely and clean, it was on the top floor with only one small window and was very dark, the bathroom only had a skylight which was fine but there was no blind on it to put down for privacy when using the bathroom. I would have expected a large bright room for a superior room and a blind on the bathroom window. Apart from this the room was fine and clean.
