Located just outside the lively and historic town of Sherborne, the Eastbury Hotel is a charming, boutique Georgian listed town house set within a spectacular walled garden. This warm, happy and welcoming hotel is infused with a homely atmosphere and exceptional service with a personal touch.
The hotel was originally designed as a residence for a wealthy gentleman and as such offers immense warmth and character giving you a home-from-home feel to every stay. The hotel is now run by the de Savary family who pride themselves on offering exception, bespoke service to all their guests. Something that has been recognised by the Taste of the West Awards who honoured the team with Gold in the Hotel and Restaurant category.
Each of the rooms at the Eastbury are named after traditional English flowers and trees and are all tastefully and sympathetically redesigned to provide the style and comfort you would expect from a luxury, boutique hotel. While each of the rooms are individually styled, you will find that all of them share luxurious fabrics, smooth linens and specially chosen mattresses. Egyptian cotton, fine furnishings and a range of in-room facilities add the finishing touches ensuring a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing stay.
All guests have the option to request room service and newspaper delivery during their stay and those that want to holiday with their dogs are welcome to make use of the nine dog friendly rooms at the hotel. Newly refurbished for the summer of 2019 are a number of Victorian Potting Shed Suites which are available to book.
Breakfast for guests is served every morning with the choice of both continental and full English breakfast options, anyone with special dietary requirements are encouraged to speak to the team when booking so that they can cater for you.
The Eastbury offers so much more to their guests than the comfort of their rooms and the delicious food. Guests have exclusive use and choice of two relaxing lounges, as well as a library and snooker rooms, beautiful walled gardens and private dining in the hotel’s pod. The lounges come complete with luxurious sofas and are decorated with fresh flowers in the summer and a warm fire place during the colder months. There are a number of games supplied to guests and everyone is welcome to spend their evenings playing chess, backgammon or bridge, picking a book from the library and settling in for some all important family time. The lounges are the perfect cosy setting for sampling an afternoon tea complimented with some of the finest locally sourced ingredients or an after dinner night cap. Speaking of dinner, the hotel’s menus reflect the changing seasons and the executive head chef and his team gather together the freshest and finest ingredients to create a tantalising variety of traditional dishes, each with their own innovative twist.
Visitors to the Eastbury can also make use of the newly added luxury Woodland Spa set in the hotel’s gardens which opens in September 2019. This exciting new addition offers guests the ultimate indulgent trip. The spa is set in the wooded area of the walled gardens among trees and wildlife, giving you a relaxing and creative feel. Facilities at the spa include a hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, mini gym, hot tub and relaxation areas. Guests will be pampered from head to toe and treatments can last all day with a break for lunch, afternoon tea or a glass of champagne for those special occasions.
The Eastbury Hotel is the perfect location for holding special events, as well as for booking memorable holidays. The hotel has two versatile and attractive meeting rooms that are professionally equipped to cater for all business and social events with a range of business and event packages on offer. It is also the ideal venue for weddings. Choosing the Eastbury for your big day will give you access to the beautiful walled gardens, the award-winning 2 rosette restaurant, the garden suite room and the idyllic surroundings that you need to create your perfect day.

The restaurant team is headed by Matthew Street, a chef who was born and bred in neighbouring Somerset and trained in the south west. He’s been leading the team for over ten years and is passionate about creating menus based around locally sourced produce. He uses as much as he can from the natural surroundings and relies on a trust list of local suppliers who are just as passionate about food as he is. Fans of the show Master Chef: The Professionals may recognise him as a finalist in the 2009 series, so you know that you are in good hands.
As the ancient capital of Dorset, the town of Sherborne is rich in history and culture, so the Eastbury Hotel is conveniently located for exploring this lively town and nearby historic sites as well as the dramatic Jurassic coastline.
