There are hundreds of hotels in Dorset – TripAdvisor lists 1,305 properties and not every accommodation provider is featured on that website. So it’s easy to understand why the team at Shaftesbury’s Grosvenor Arms Hotel is celebrating after being singled out as one of the best hotels in the county.
A new app is set to transform the way in which Shaftesbury’s beautiful setting and rich history is presented to locals and visitors.
Have you seen people with clipboards, quizzing the visitors who stop to admire the iconic view down Shaftesbury’s Gold Hill? It’s part of an extensive market research exercise that will continue for the next month.
Shaftesbury is looking cleaner and more welcoming after council staff washed many of the town centre signs, ready for the main visitor season.
