I therefore telephoned the hotel before my arrival and asked to be moved. They moved me to a side room and... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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...

My partner was born locally so we trip to Sherborne a couple of times a year. Normally staying at a different hotel, we will switch to staying here in future. Building a little tired but made up for with the friendliness of the staff, I think it was Anna especially who seemed to be on duty 24/7 but always a... More

We stayed at the Half Moon Inn recently. The room was basic but clean and comfortable with an ensuite bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. The price of the room was a pleasant surprise. The food in the restaurant was delicious and very reasonably priced and the breakfast that was included was excellent. Katie Fox was incredibly accommodating as... More
