Good Hotel Guide Review
A ‘lovely’ walled garden gives a country house air to this small hotel in the heart of a historic market town. The ‘pleasant retreat’ has been restored to its Edwardian splendour by Peter and Lana de Savary. ‘Comfortable, well-furnished’ bedrooms are supplied with bathrobes and slippers, teas, coffees and home-made biscuits. In the garden, five new green-roofed suites, all dog friendly, each have a private terrace. Afternoon teas and dishes of the day are served in the bar or on the terrace, in good weather; in the evening, chef Matthew Street’s creative fine-dining and tasting menus are a high point. To soothe body and soul: a spa with a hydrotherapy tub and outside jacuzzi; Sherborne Abbey, just steps away.
