We think it is important that you have the opportunity to hear what others have to say about their experience here at Holbrook Bed and Breakfast, the standard of accommodation, meals, hospitality and its location in the historic Saxon Hilltop town of Shaftesbury, Dorset.

 

Here are just some of the recent reviews Holbrook Bed and Breakfast have received:

 

 

Excellent Standard - A great place to stay, very comfortable double bed room with an en-suite shower room & WC. Also dog-friendly which was great for me travelling with a small well-behaved dog. The breakfast choice was excellent and cooked breakfast is to order. Lovely owners who were most friendly and super-helpful. Shaftesbury town is well worth a visit.

This a warm B & B in every sense of the word. The owners are friendly and welcoming and you want for nothing. The rooms are clean and the meals are great. I would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area.

Well worth visiting this is an excellent B&B. Returning once again to this first class B&B we found it had not changed its warm welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are still extremely comfortable and well appointed the meals are first rate and we would hesitate in recommending it to anyone visiting the area. It is our intention to return for our fifth visit very soon we hope. Diane and Ian are the most friendly we have stayed with in a long time and we hope that they able to continue for a long time.

Best B&B ever, OUTSTANDING! This really is a fantastic B&B with lovely, friendly owners. You want for nothing. The breakfast and dinners are first class not to mention the desserts. lol

I've seen pretty much all the rooms on offer and can honestly say they are extremely comfortable and relaxing with a warm, homely feeling. The beds are very comfortable as well, infact I found myself oversleeping on more than one occasion. If you are looking for a cheap stop over on your way to your next destination, a business trip or a weekend break in the picturesque town of Shaftesbury, I highly recommend Holbrook B&B.
Ian and Diane, it truly was a pleasure.

Again, a very nice stay. As I said before, it was not the last stay for us, as we did come back to stay for 4 days (I needed a lot of Rest/help and i did find Diane & Ian very help full). The room was clean as always and the English Breakfast (a lot for the morning). I hope that it will not be too long in seeing them again.

Extremely friendly and welcoming. My wife and I stayed in the family room with our three kids, ages 13, 10, and 8. Very comfortable accommodations and the owners were extremely friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We stayed at a variety of B&B's on our recent trip to England, and I have to say that Ian and Diane were hands down the friendliest innkeepers we met. Food was great and plentiful. All in all, I would highly recommend a stay at Holbrook B&B.

Absolutely brilliant, the best B&B we have stayed in. We were made to feel welcome from the start. The room was very clean and pleasantly decorated. A lot of thought went into the extras, everything you could possibly need for an overnight stay. Also, a nice vase of flowers in the room. Although our room was at the front of the house there was no noticeable noise from traffic during the night. We enjoyed a very tasty home cooked lasagne for dinner followed by fresh strawberries and cream and the breakfast was excellent the following morning.
Diane and Ian are to be congratulated on a lovely B and B and we will definitely return in the future.

Immaculately clean. I stayed there with my husband and our 6 months old daughter. The owner is friendly and very helpful, from helping my luggage, set up baby cot and make a booking for dinner at a pub. The room is immaculately clean, and have lots of extra amenities (and not a cheap skate one!), such as cookies, fresh flowers, 3 sets of towels plus hand towels & bath mat, cotton buds, etc. Breakfast is generously plenty. After all, all we need in an accommodation is cleanliness and friendliness (not very often you can find good hospitality in UK!) Others are bonus :) Holbrook meets all criteria. Thumbs up.

Absolutely brilliant. I reiterate the previous reviews, probably the best B and B I've stayed in. My sister and I only had one night Sunday 25 March in Room 1 whilst visiting family in the area but boy what a treat!! Diane and Ian are a most warming and friendly couple and extremely helpful. Room was spacious, good shower, very comfy beds, thoughtful touches, eg fresh flowers in room etc. Good shower, toiletries and all very clean and tidy. Superb breakfast, especially the fresh fruit and a huge all (and I mean ALL) English breakfast, the complete works! Recommend the 15+mins level walk to the Half Moon Pub (outskirts of town) for evening meal - excellent. Congrats to Diane and Ian for a most welcoming and good value for money, 'home from home'.

Holbrook Bed & Breakfast.  This is a great B and B. Diane and Ian went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. They are genuinely kind and thoughtful. We stayed in room one which was immaculately clean and comfortable. The shower was powerful and hot and the beds were comfy. It is only a 5 min wander into town. Breakfast was well cooked, fresh and tasty. We would visit again! Thank you!

Gorgeous couple with an outstanding B&B. I stayed for three nights with advantages of a family environment as well as hotel's standards. Ian and Diane are lovely owner who welcome you even before arrival. Enhancing your stay with them with both happiness and joy. Offering you their kind assistance when you look for it and normally they advise you where to go at night if there is a plan. My room was amenities are equally the same in a 5 star hotel. It was cosy and tidy. Once you cross the road you will find KFC, pizza palace, on the run and a petrol station. I have enjoyed my stay there. Their hospitality did not stop there but they have offered me a dinner and a dropped me at Gillingham train station as my trip to London was late.

I would highly recommend Holbrook B&B.

So very pleased we stayed here. We travelled through 7 countries over 3 months so certainly have had a lot of experience of B&B and hotel accommodation. We stayed at the Holbrook B&B in Shaftesbury for 2 nights. What a lovely friendly couple the owners, Diane & Ian are. Usually B&B owners settle you into your room and that’s the last we see of them until breakfast, but with Diane & Ian, they settled us into our room first, then invited us for coffee in the dining room where they joined us. They directed us to places around town and beyond. Ian went into the office and came back with information from the internet to help us find what we were looking for in a nearby village. I think they did more for us than the “tourist Information service” has done on our whole trip. Our twin room was lovely and spacious, and it was very clean. Most importantly, the mattresses were very comfortable so we slept well.

Best B&B in Shaftesbury!! We spent a weekend at Holbrook B&B, Ian and Diane were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them; including booking us taxis for our night out! They were very friendly and always had time for a chat.
Our room was lovely, a good size, very cosy and very clean. All the facilities were just right; Ian even brought me fresh milk for my morning cup of tea!
The B&B itself is in a great location, within walking distance of Shaftesbury high street.
The freshly cooked breakfast was also amazing.
We will definitely be staying at Holbrook again, and would highly recommend it!

Does exactly what it says on the tin! This is the second time I've stayed with Ian & Diane, and the warmth of the place hasn't changed. No nonsense functional rooms, with friendly service and help if and when you need it. The price doesn't cater for frills and airs, but for a very reasonable rate you get a clean room, a well cooked breakfast, and a warm atmosphere - what else do you need? I haven't tried any other places in Shaftesbury, I haven't felt the need to, and I will be back at Holbrook next year!

Home from home. Stayed here for 6 months working away from home. I received a warm welcome form day one. The service was one of a relaxed but professionally run Bed and Breakfast. Ian and Diane always had a smile and made my stay very enjoyable. I would certainly recommend them, whether for a stop-over or longer stay.

Good for business and leisure. It was our second time; Diane & Ian make you feel that you are part of their family (with all the help you get). Very good breakfast. Hope to see you later this year. Vincent & Mary from MALTA.

A first class experience!! I thoroughly recommend the Holbrook! The hosts Ian, and Diane, greet you with a warm welcome. The rooms are immaculate, and the en suite showers are powerful, and invigorating. the food is excellent, and they have everything associated with an English breakfast. Me and my partner enjoyed our stay, and will return. if your looking for the best in Shaftesbury, you wont go wrong with this little gem! Faultless!

An Excellent Family friendly B&B. We have just returned from a 2 nights stay at this lovely B&B in Shaftesbury. Diane and Ian were both there to welcome us as we arrived. We arrived later than they had expected but this was no problem. Diane gave us some fresh milk for tea and coffee as we headed for our room. Our room was a fantastic size and very comfortably accommodated our 3 children. There was a superking size bed for us and lovely bunk beds for our 2 older children. Diane also offered us a travel cot for our youngest but we already had a crib with us. The room was really clean and all or bedding and towels freshly washed. The room had a modern en-suite with a fantastic shower. The breakfasts at Holbrook are fantastic! Lots of cereals, fresh fruit salad, yoghurts and fresh orange juice. Also, the hot breakfast menu was delicious. A choice of eggs, bacon, mushrooms sausage etc. Our son made the most of this! Diane made him a mini English brekkie 2 mornings in a row which he loved! She even had wet wipes on hand for our daughter who made the most of the Nutella on toast option! I really have nothing negative to say about this B&B. Some of our family also stayed here on 1 out of the 2 nights. They also have 2 children and Diane and Ian accommodated the 5 children so easily. I think this is very rare nowadays, so this alone is worth 10 out of 10! Thank you Diane and Ian !!
