The breakfast was tasty and plentiful, and was comparable to what you would expect in a quality hotel. Parking for 3 carsat least, and easy access from the main road. An...

I was given room 3 and it was adequate for my two night stay. Ian and Diane are lovely people and very helpful. The room was small, without a wardrobe and could do with a bit of an update ... with fluffier pillows? The ensuite was adequate although the fan was somewhat noisy. The dining room is nice and well...

Diane and Ian made us very welcome and comfortable. High standard accommodation, and lovely breakfast (especially good poached eggs!). They also got us soya milk especially as one of our party is lactose intolerant. Thanks for having us! Fox Family

We spent one night here and it was perfect in every way. Location is so convenient for main roads and Ian and Diane could not have been more welcoming. Parking is easy and our room was excellent with plenty of toiletries in the bathroom and a good hostess tray. Breakfast lacked nothing with the fullest possible choice of eats! We...

This is the second time I have been working around Shaftsbury and I stayed at the Holbrook on my first visit to the area. The hospitality from Dianne & Ian is faultless. The quality of the breakfast is as good as you would get in any Hotel; I could not think of anything that I wanted that was not available....

“May be quieter at the back but noise was not a problem for us in a front room on the main road.”
