Stayed here to attend a wedding at a nearby country house.Bed was a bit soft but slept OK anyway. Room was at the back so no noise from the road. Breakfast was the only meal we had there and I cant fault it. Tasty and not greasy. Room was clean and tidy but only one large towel was supplied (and... More

Excellent..... We'd booked the rooms as a stop over - we were attending a family wedding the following day at a country house nearby - but couldn't stay there until the evening of the wedding. The Ilchester Arms Hotel was recommended to us by a relation who lives 5 miles away. We were all made very welcome, nothing was too... More

We booked 2 rooms, a double and a family for an overnight stay. It was Sunday to Monday. It was a shame they did not do food on a Sunday evening, but we enjoyed a bar drink. Both rooms were clean and nicely appointed. The Family room was quirky with one of the beds, a single, placed in a small... More

We visited Ilchester for a family occasion, and could not be more delighted that we stayed at the Ilchester Arms. While always refreshing to come from the pace of city life to the gentler pace of Somerset, the staff and proprietor of the hotel were warm and gentle with their welcome, but swift and urgent in responding to all our...

My husband and I took our 10 year old daughter here for dinner on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is very attractive and cosy, and the staff welcoming, friendly and very willing to accommodate. We ate an excellent meal, with wine and desserts, only £75 for the 3 of us which we thought very good value. I am vegetarian and... More

A very nice stay and lovely accommodation. The staff and owners make you feel very welcome here. Perfect stay for a family gathering. Rooms lovely and spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay in the area. Breakfast was good.

My room was very small but nevertheless comfortable, with a full English breakfast. A change to my booking was sorted out totally unbureaucratically - a quick word and it was done. The food in the Bistro was very good at a reasonable price, and the cost of drinks was equally reasonable. All the staff without exception were helpful and friendly,... More

Wednesday lunch menu of roast beef, beef was VERY tough and disappointing, house burger ok filling but nothing special. Sauvignon Blanc was good also choice of beers but will not be returning.

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your meal, we do not normally receive complaints about our beef and if you had raised it to the staff at the time we would have been happy to provide you with an alternative meal.

My wife and I were hiking the SWC Path and stayed here one night. the room was adequate. It took quite awhile for the water to heat up in the shower! And the pressure was poor. Not wifi in the room either. The staff was very nice though and it was a quaint place to stay in a small village!
