Excellent value for money, for a one night stay,

The half moon pub is a convenient place to stay in Sherborne, it is walking distance from the railway station and opposite the Abbey.

The staff were friendly. The twin room we stayed in was very clean with an ensuite bathroom. The decor was a little basic, but was fine for myself and my friends one night stay. Breakfast in the morning was execellent, with a choice of food items for the cooked breakfast, the toast was good quality bread and the scrambled egss were perfect. We didn't have our evening meal there and were glad we didn't as the pub attached to the dining room was open plan and was very noisey and seemd to be populated by all young people. The pub part of the hotel is the only drawback as it is very noisey and the fire door from the pub to the hotel reception desk and staircase to the rooms is kept propped open. Also the exit door for hotel guests is also used by the pub clientele to go outisde to smoke and this door creaks every time someone goes in or out. The smell of cigarette smoke is very strong as you go up the stairs. we did not get a good night's sleep because of the all the noise from the pub and th constant creaking of the exit door.

The cost of the bed and breakfast was excellent value and the noise factor is the only reason I would not reccommend this hotel.
