We have been here a few times but just recently both times we have eaten in the restaurant there has been screaming children all around us..one of the staff seems to bring in her screaming child for hours! Enough to put you off...the food is lovely just a shame about the racket,would recommend anyone bring some ear plugs 😠

The food is 2nd to none, but walking out I feel I should wipe my feet......the carpets are RANK !!! We only eat there, don't stay. The manager is great, looks after us all very well when we go to eat. He tells us he is relocating to Devon, which is Dorset's loss, Devon's gain

The choice of food at the evening meal was just right, not too much but a very good selection across the board. The wine list gave a good all round choice and the... More

The staff are the essence of this establishment. Helpful, friendly, welcoming. The hotel is perfectly located. The building really needs an upgrade as it is a little tired. The staff deserve better support from the corporation which owns the building.

After a few problems a few years ago at the Half Moon, I stayed over Christmas this year. The manger addressed all my previous problems, and I was happy to stay again. Nice room, comfortable bed, nice full sized bath with shower, very good water pressure, which is not always the case with some other hotels I have stayed at.... More

Rooms small, but clean and equipped as necessary. Breakfast all right. Large bar downstairs, very busy with outside trade, and licence until midnight. Parking at rear. Perfectly adequate for the price.
