12 friends booked the hotel for a reunion celebration and we stayed for two nights. The hotel organised a special dinner for us at a fixed rate. We had a very special stay. Our breakfasts and dinners were excellent and all the staff were charming and helpful throughout. We have these reunions every few years and the hotel has made... More

I enjoyed my recent single night stay at the Northover Manor. It was my first visit to this hotel as I normally stay closer to Yeovil when in the area. The hotel has a relaxed feel about it and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The building has served many different functions over the centuries which now results in... More

Thankyou for your comments. We are working towards establishing that quirky kind of vibe with a real emphasis on professional. In a competitive market the last thing we would like to be is faceless. Next time you're here ask for a room in the Annexe or overlooking the Courtyard. Kind regards Mark More

I only selected this hotel because others that I tried nearby were all fully booked (not sure why Somerset in March is so busy but glad for the local economy that it is!). Having said that, I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area. Room was a good size and clean, breakfast good, but it was... More

Having had a lovely stay in November, returned for longer this time. All was as good as we remembered, delicious dinners and very tasty breakfasts. The delightful staff made us extremely welcome, we enjoyed several evenings sitting in the bar chatting with them all. Had a lovely room at the back of the hotel overlooking the garden and fields beyond.... More

We stayed here for one night, and overall we thought the public areas of the hotel were great. The bar, lounge and restaurant were really nicely furnished, welcoming and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and the service was efficient and professional. The food was delicious. The sea bass was just right and the chocolate fondant with homemade cookie dough... More

Thankyou for your comments they are always appreciated. Having asked guests recently if they share your view of the room smelling damp I am happy to report to the contrary.Interestingly the new heating system we've installed has given us some minor concerns but we appear to be making progress. With specific regard to the downstairs doors and the toilet signs,... More

just lovely-so relaxing, warm welcome, excellent food, and staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. When in the Yeovil area this Hotel has to be among the very best to consider.The restaurant is worthy of special mention

We stayed her for a function at the navy base. Had an absolutely amazing stay - the staff had exceptional customer service skills (especially Alastair who put up with our somewhat crazy family - with a smile on his face the whole time!). The food was gorgeous and service was prompt. They all went out of their way to make... More

We booked this last minute to meet up with friends - and we were unsure if it would be any good. What a pleasant surprise! We and our friends arrived and we were shown to our upstairs rooms. They were clean and pretty good. The hospitality was exceptional. The biggest surprise was the restaurant - we booked for dinner and... More

Rang to book a table for Valentines day and they juggled numbers around and managed to fit us in, which I think was excellent. We arrived approximately 30 minutes early to have a drink at the bar but was invited to sit in a nicely laid out room with comfortable seating, very relaxing. The owner came and gave us our... More
