3 lvy Cross is in an excellent location for visitors to Shaftesbury and has good parking. Received a friendly welcome and shown the excellent large bedroom overlooking the road, both bedroom and adjoining bathroom first class. Really enjoyed the full English breakfast and pleased that asking for it to be served a little early was not a problem. I hope...

We stayed for a night (we wish it had been longer!) at 3 Ivy Cross. The welcome, the room and the breakfast were first class. We had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated room - and this was followed by a delicious breakfast. Michael and Sally were knowledgeable about the town, and very...

Excellent B & B, comfortable, immaculately clean, great position. Hosts were both charming and helpful. The breakfasts were as good as you can get and the 'Full English' was cooked superbly. All in all one of the best places we've stayed at.

I stayed here with my 'other half' for one night as we attended a party close by - and I was really very impressed - I'd recommend 3 Ivy cross to anyone. We had a lovely warm welcome from the start and we're shown our lovely spacious room (overlooking the front). The room was immaculately clean and you could tell...

We chose 3 Ivy Cross, after reading the reviews, for an overnight stay when we went to a christening in Shaftesbury. It is a lovely place and only a short walk into town. It is maintained to a very high standard by the owners Michael and Sally who obviously take great pride in their modern home.

We stayed one night in Shaftsbury to enjoy some local attractions including visiting Gold Hill. Mike was a wonderful host, making us feel at home and the breakfast was excellent. I am a vegetarian and both my wife and I found plenty of good things to eat. The bedroom was en-suite with a lovely warm bathroom and large shower. The...

We stayed for a couple of nights after returning our son to Bournemouth University. Michael and Sally were perfect hosts and their attention to detail was amazing.

We had two lovely nights here. Mike and Sally are brilliant hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The decor is beautiful and tasteful, gorgeous bedroom and bathroom.
