Dating back to medieval times, the updated Georgian-style Grosvenor Arms is a relaxed inn located in the Dorset town of Shaftesbury, an area associated with Thomas Hardy's novels.

The town centre and Gold Hill Museum are within a 5-minute walk of the hotel (the museum is on Gold Hill, a steep road made famous in Ridley Scott’s 1970s TV commercial for Hovis bread), while Stonehenge and Longleat House and Safari Park are within a 30-minute drive. There are also many walks, fishing spots and golf courses in the surrounding area.

Each of the 16 elegant, pet-friendly rooms has original features with contemporary décor, and comes with free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, an iPod dock and a coffee machine. Upgrades feature a balcony and/or a free-standing roll-top bathtub. In-room facials and massages are available for a fee.

There's a restaurant serving contemporary cuisine, a bar with a log fireplace, a snack bar/deli, a conservatory and a courtyard terrace. There are three meeting/function rooms, and room and laundry services are available.
