BEST WESTERN The Royal Chase Hotel

18th Century charm, 21st Century convenience.

BEST WESTERN The Royal Chase Hotel enjoys a prime location, nestled in its own extensive grounds on the outskirts of Shaftesbury at the heart of Thomas Hardy Country. Comfortable rooms, award-winning cuisine and an indoor swimming pool are just some of the reasons youll fall for this quaint hotel, while Gold Hill, made famous by the Hovis TV commercial, is well worth leaving the comfort of the hotel for. The original hotel building dates back do 1753. As an ex-monastery it has a history of peace and quiet, and we're happy to say the mood of tranquility remains!
