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!

Dining and Bars

With the launch of the new menu this year Robert has sourced and introduced lots of local produce and still values the "we serve all our guests" and not the buffet style of service now common. His talented team of chefs serve up their exciting creative interpretation of classic and modern dishes and compliment it with lighter snacks that run throughout the day.

Chef Robert Hirst
