Peter and Lana de Savary’s Eastbury Hotel in Sherborne, Dorset awarded AA 4-Star status following recent refurbishment and upgrade programme

Eastbury Hotel


The 21-bedroomed boutique hotel and its two Rosette Seasons restaurant in the heart of Sherborne in Dorset, is proud to announce that is has been awarded a coveted 4-Star Rating by the AA, following an extensive refurbishment and upgrade in service and efficiency under the guidance of legendary hotelier, Peter de Savary, who acquired the hotel in February 2018.

Particular note was made of the warmth of atmosphere and strong team spirit; the impressive food standard (a “very strong two rosette level”), excellent restaurant service; professional reception team; good housekeeping and impressive refurbishments.

Owner, Peter de Savary commented: “I am delighted for the wonderful team at The Eastbury. They are young, enthusiastic and professional and have improved standards dramatically in a short space of time. This bodes very well for the future and I am excited by what we can further achieve once the new Hobbit House Spa and new Potting Shed Garden Suites complete the new-look Eastbury next year. Whilst we now have a four star hotel rating, we aim to offer a friendly five star experience.”

About The Eastbury

The Eastbury is a beautiful country house hotel set within a spectacular walled garden in the heart of the historic town of Sherborne in Dorset. Recently acquired by Peter & Lana de Savary, this is a warm, happy and welcoming hotel infused with a homely and personal touch and exceptional service. The Hotel has been completely refurbished and restyled in late 2018 with a selection of 21 guest rooms, all individually styled for ultimate comfort and relaxation and a 2 Rosette award-winning Seasons restaurant offers a perfect blend of traditional and superb innovative cuisine.

2019 Plans

Opening in summer 2019 will be a UK first “Hobbit House Spa” tucked into a leafy corner of the garden as well as five new “Potting Shed” Garden Suites.  The quirky Spa building, designed as a Hobbit House – built from local stone and complete with sedum and moss roof and a circular doorway – will house a boutique Spa, consisting of two treatment rooms (including a couples room), a hydrotherapy pool, sauna and steam room, exercise area and private relaxation space. The Potting Shed Garden Suites have been imagined to offer guests the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the glorious hotel gardens. The stylish new dog-friendly suites will take inspiration from traditional English Victorian Potting Sheds and will be located discreetly within the landscaping of the garden whilst preserving the integrity of the historical brick garden wall.  Private patios, fire pits, sedum roofs and tasteful and creative de Savary interiors will complete a bucolic experience rarely available within a hotel.
