A HOTEL in Dorset has scooped a Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence.

The Eastbury Hotel in Sherborne has won the much coveted Best Luxury Value Award at the 37th annual Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence.

It sits alongside a number of other West Country winners, including its own sister hotel, the Cary Arms & Spa at Babbacombe Beach, Torquay, which won the Readers’ Award. Burley Manor in the New Forest won the Best Countryside Hotel award.

The Eastbury Hotel and Seasons Restaurant is the latest acquisition by legendary hoteliers, Peter and Lana de Savary, and has been subject to a significant upgrade in terms of design, offering, and service standards.

The refurbishment of the Grade II listed hotel has recently been completed and includes the magical The Eastbury Spa by Amelia Rose and Caudalie, and five beautiful new Victorian Garden Potting Shed Suites set within the walled gardens.
