“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We (as a family of 4) stayed recently for a wedding. The hotel is very well located in the town centre of Sherborne with convenient parking at the rear. The staff are very helpful (especially Anna) and food price and quality very good. I would agree with some of the other reviews on here that the rooms are a little tired but it appeared that steps were underway to remedy this. Overall it was an excellent stay and would visit again.

Single room for £50 a night with breakfast was very good value. Nice room with clean well kept bathroom. Bed was elderly, but just about all right. Noisy in the evenings from the bar, especially Friday and Saturday when it is open until midnight. The Abbey clock strikes every quartet of an hour, and is plainly audible with the windows open at the back. Breakfast was freshly cooked and hot and highly recommended. Try the scrambled egg.

We stayed weekend of 12 th July for a wedding in The Abbey ( across the road). Staff were very helpful and friendly. Good car parking, breakfast mains good but could do with more cereal choice and fruit dishes. Didn't eat any other meals. The whole place needs a refurbishment and as Sherborne is such a beautiful place it would do well to be more upmarket in the standard of finishes to the bedrooms and public areas.

Room Tip: The back rooms get the sun so baking hot in summer, front street not too busy so could be better but...

We had a few days here whilst touring Dorset. From the friendly welcome to the last meal it was all great.
The hotel has a large car park and is centrally located so exploring the town on foot was easy.
The bar was friendly and served honest pub grub to a high standard.
A good breakfast set you up for the day and a relaxing pint at the end made it a great trip.

Stayed June 2014

I was very impressed with the hotel. Very comfortable, clean and fantastic staff (Anna - I have to say that!!). The breakfast is one of the best I have ever eaten. Would definitely stay here again Also great value. They just need a decent coffee machine
