Good: Location, staff, cleanliness, car park and free WiFi. Average: Breakfast. For development: Room maintenance (bathroom shelves and bath-side broken). Stained mattress protector. It can be noisy at the front in the evening with drinkers and in the morning with deliveries. Probably a back room would be best.

Service was good. Food Average at best. Boasts it has Wifi but it was hiding when I was there. Very good location in the middle of everything. If you wanted a night out its not a bad place to start the night.

Visited many times, even stayed there once and would not return to stay again. Lovely as Sherborne is, this place really does not fit in. The carpet was filthy, supposed to be blue but there are black patches everywhere. The entrance to the toilets smelt of urine, the ladies toilets smelled bad. Staff do not appear motivated. Had a group... More

This is a beautiful hotel that brings back many memories when I was there 40 years ago. A most happy setting, enjoyable and lovely people. A lovely village to walk through with many great little shops. There was everything to love about this Inn. Much history. Will come back again.

Situated on a main street, the rooms at the front were noisy. Altogether the place needs a facelift, but the staff tried hard and were always efficient and friendly. The breakfast was poor, the food overlong in arriving and often luke warm and/or uneatable. Don't try the porridge!

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
