Stayed for 2 nights. I know Sherborne and am very fond of the area but was new to this hotel. The staff are just lovely and my bags were taken to my room. The room was fine - possibly a little dated - but the bathroom was clearly newly refurbished with a walk in shower as well as a bath.
There are nice touches like de-icing equipment and umbrellas for guests to use as well as a 'treasure chest' where there are things like toothbrushes and razors for free in case you've forgotten something and soft drinks and snacks for you to buy. There is also a guest laundry room. I also liked the fact that they knew who I was - not like other hotels where you are constantly being asked for your room number.
Food is excellent. There is a good dinner menu and also a grazing menu for smaller appetites - the smoked salmon sandwiches were fabulous!
Breakfast is cooked to order - so much better than the usual hot buffet routine - and served in a light and airy room over looking the pretty garden.
Sherborne is just lovely with some great shops and cafes and the abbey is well worth a visit. You can drive in or walk - took me about 40 minutes to walk from the hotel.
A lovely weekend at a really great little hotel.
