          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The hotel was very conveniently placed, the staff were very friendly and helpful, we did not notice any traffic noise.

            We have visited the hotel in the past, not as staying guests, and we felt that the standard of food was not as high as it had been, the pillows in our room were lumpy and hard, we shall  take our own in future !We would recommend it with caveats.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            pool, great service at the front desk

            not clean enough, older style, older mattrasses, dated furniture, all in all a bit run down

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Good bar menu and an excellent breakfast.

            Possibly the worst shower I've ever known in a hotel. It let down an otherwise comfortable room.

            Value for Money

            Needs updating and the pool area needs a refurb

          • Family with children
            5.8

            The main meal was terrible. The floor was noisy and you were awoken when people walked on it.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            The staff at the Royal Chase were, without exception, helpful, pleasant and friendly

            The shower in our bathroom did not work very well. We reported this to reception and it was looked at - the feedback was to the effect that there had been a problem in an adjacent room, our shower had been adjusted to be the best it could but "a part was needed". Unfortunately this was the last we heard of the matter and we feel that was rather unsatisfactory.

            Fantastic room

            People smoking outside at night time in the court yard No electricity in the bathroom in the morning

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            very friendly, helpful and pleasant staff; clean hotel; lovely breakfast and a good location - only 10 minutes walk into shaftsbury & easy access to main routes.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Room was clean. Looked recently decorated with new carpet and floor tiles in bathroom. Bathroom wall tiles not new - black mould around bath.Large room well fitted out but rather soul-less, no pictures and beige wallpaper (even on the door). Double bed a bit small but comfortable, plenty of pillows. Staff very pleasant. Breakfast - good selection although it was set out all the time so if you wanted something which was not as popular, like scrambled eggs, then they had been sitting in the heated tray for a couple of hours.Popular items were replenished without delay. Good size pool but changing room and shower a bit grim.

            Restaurant was available in the evenings but no lighter meals. However there is a fantastic pub on the other side of the road which has a wide range of food and some excellent well priced wines. Steam room still out of action.

          • Family with children
            5.0

            The swimming pool was good, although the steam room was not working when we stayed. The breakfast and evening meal were also good.

            The bed was uncomfortable, the bathroom was not particularly clean and smelt unpleasant. The receptionist was not very welcoming or child-friendly and the price we paid for our three night stay di not represent good value fo money.

          • Single
            6.2

            Found the staff helpful and friendly. Room was comfortable if a little dated in decor.

            What I didn't like was the shower pressure was non-existent and also the walls between rooms extremely thin so if you had noisy neighbours, as did I, then it was hard to sleep..

          • Couple
            8.2

            A very helpful staff; excellent breakfast.......spotless room, however, think it is a bit shabby, and didn't warrant the high tariff......... should be more in the region of £70-85 a night, and not £115....

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Very welcoming staff. Very good location for accessing the local town. A nice, comfortable room with plenty of storage space. Enjoyable breakfasts. A pleasant ambiance throughout the hotel. Generous tea and coffee making facilities and provision.

            No real dislikes

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Very good staff, nicely presented hotel.

            The central heating system needs sorting, the radiator in the room actual woke me during the night, extremely load vibrations.

          • Single
            8.2

            Friendly staff, a clean comfortable room and an excellent cooked breakfast.
