Now I don't normally write negative review - firstly I rarely have the need and secondly I usually find a little constructive criticism at the time works best. In this instance though, I am not sure. My greeting was perfunctory at best; I think the guy wanted to get back to his bar rather than talk to me. The room... More

We stayed here for one Saturday night and found the room clean, well appointed and with a comfortable bed. Breakfast the next morning was excellent with a good choice. The staff were very friendly. All this at a very modest cost. Downside, the pub doesn't shut till 12 mid night and on a fine night drinkers sit outside and we... More

I stayed here with my husband for a couple of nights, food was average as was the service once the staff were off their mobile phones! Room was ok although we were on the top floor so no water pressure which made the shower inadequate. The whole place definitely needs an overhaul. Would we stay again, probably not.

Nice old hotel or inn. Pub & restaurant are downstairs. Middle of town so you don't have to walk far to visit places. Room was comfortable with nice view. Food was nice and good priced with friendly staff.

As a resident of Sherborne and a retired licensee the overall quality of the options available is really very poor. Due to the closure of the Sherborne Hotel rooms pace in this hugely popular destination is non existent. The Half Moon is really very average indeed with very ordinary food catering for the bottom end of the market and the... More

Only here for a lunch and nothing to tempt us back. Food very average and the chips with the sandwich were really greasy. Really in need of an upgrade as very dingy inside and does not really smell very fresh. A shame as could be really stunning.

Overnight stopover but overpriced and overrated in a beautiful historic town. Free parking after 6pm, quiet in the evenings midweek with very few alternative options. Would not recommend and would not revisit.

We booked accommodation for our son's wedding. So glad we did. The price of the rooms reflects value-for-money. Not a Premier Inn, but a real old-fashioned travellers inn where looking after your guest's comfort and well-being is a high priority with all the staff. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. We slept very well. In the evening of our... More
