I have stayed here several times now and it is never less than perfect. The rooms are spacious, clean and beautifully maintained. My partner has limited mobility but has no trouble with the facilities. The staff are always helpful and pleasant, the food is excellent and the beer very well kept. Until I found this gem of a place, I... More

Fab rooms, large bed, if I had to complain it would be lighting isn't good for doing make up but it's the same in all hotels. Breakfast was a massive let down, was really looking forward to it but the full English appeared to have had bacon, sausage and fried bread all deep fried, such a shame,

Just returned home from an overnight stay at the Square & Compass Stables. What a great place it is! Situated a little way out of Ilminster, it's a bit tricky to find but a sat nav will get you there. The rooms in the separate accommodation block are very spacious and comfortable and have all been decorated to a very... More

The Inn's photos inspired me to book a room for our 30th wedding anniversary trip. The room was lovely and spacious, the bed was amazing, all 6 ft of it, it was just the best bed I've every slept on. There was also a good range of towels in the room for our use. There was also lots of toiletries... More

We have been here many times but this time was for a Christmas dinner, the food was fabulous, big portions and really tasty, the pudding was also lovely. The staff have always been so friendly and always made us very welcome. We would certainly eat there again .

We stayed for a night in the newly opened camping facility. The toilet and shower were very clean and the shower was great. We had tea in the pub and if was cooked by Chris and his wife, the fish and chips were excellent with a beautifully cooked 'huge' piece of fish. The pub is dog and child friendly. 3... More

On arrival we were greeted by the very friendly landlord and owner .check in was simple and easy and after a sample of the local ales we proceeded to our rooms. The rooms are adjacent to the pub and restraunt looking like converted stables. Very... More

Excellent accommodation, rooms larger than your average hotel rooms with huge beds, very clean, modern and well maintained. Couldn't ask for a better location,surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside hills, yet close enough to the local towns and amenities. Also only half an hour from the Jurassic coast which we ventured out to during our stay. Exceptional food served in large... More
