We’ll be back.
Liked: Ease of book in and ideal location. Short walk to Sherborne centre. Tea/coffee, fresh milk, biscuits, sparkling water plentiful and easy to access in the refreshments nook. Bistro, excellent food. Well worth trying the A La Carte menu, plenty of choice, delicious food and lovely atmosphere.

We were visiting family in...
Liked: We were lucky to have a room at the back away from traffic noise. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was modern and clean. There was a cubby hole along the corridor with tea making facilities and free water in the fridge.
Disliked: Right on a busy A road with no nice views.

Very good experience for my...
Liked: Very convenient spot to explore delightful Sherborne. Owners were friendly and my breakfast was exceptional as made from fresh ingredients.
Disliked: Not much to dislike, a slight downside was my room was on the side of the main road where you could hear the traffic, something I'm not used to. Not a problem if you didn't have the windows open of course.

Simple rooms above a restaurant...
Liked: Simple rooms, comfortably furnished, the rocking chair was a nice touch.3 minute walk to the centre of Sherborne.I was visiting friends so ate dinner at their house but the restauranteur kindly did me a glass of red wine and some excellent cheese when I got back in the evening.Mini kitchen for making tea and coffee was much better than a miserable tray and miniscule room kettle that other places provide, it meant fresh milk was available as well.Breakfast was lovely, I can recommend the avocado on toast with ricotta (they make their own bread) and the toasted banana bread was divine.
Disliked: I knew it was on a busy road but hadn't appreciated how very noisy it would be at night, even the odd lorry releasing its air brakes at 4am. If I go back I'll ask for a different room.I arrived when the owners were out and didn't spot the envelope they had left in the lobby for me to collect my key. It would have been helpful if they'd told me they were going to do that so I could have looked for it.
