The name Manor gave me the impression it would be somewhat remote and it is not, it really is not a manor at all, but a conversion of a number of buildings. I arrived at tea time on a Saturday and I was attending an event at Sherborne the next morning. The car park was full with many cars which... More

Found trawling the internet, this charmer was located near some of the sights we planned to see and we duly booked it for a night. We were after a family room and were provided a spacious room with bunk beds for the kids, a welcome relief from the fold out sofas we had before and a spacious bathroom which was... More

We stayed for a one night stop over on the way to Devon for a long weekend. The staff were very helpful and the room was a good size. However as we arrived late evening all we wanted to do was calm our two young children down and get them to bed ready for a busy day the next day... More

We met up with our Cornwallian friends in Ilchester and stayed at the Northover Manor Hotel for 2 nights. Our friends had a lovely spacious ground floor room, with a large accessible bathroom. We lugged our luggage upstairs where we had a great corner room overlooking the river Yeo and meadows and a small ensuite. (No air conditioning, sorry we're... More

The staff were brilliant, the atmosphere was good, but there is one huge criticism. We stayed in room 6, where it became apparent the owners scrimped on the conversion. During the night we were kept awake by snoring from room 5 we were in 6. It sounded like two Harley Davidsons with a stage 1 tune at full throttle. This... More

Thankyou for your comments. I will investigate the noise issue and see what can be done. Im disappointed you didn't sleep well. As you may well be aware their are rooms at different price bands but that doesn't mean you should be compromised on rest. Should you find yourself in the area again we would welcome the opportunity of addressing... More

Me and boyfriend decided to spend the night away together and we found this hotel at last minute and I'm so glad we did. The service from the staff was good and the standard of the room was better than I thought. The breakfast the next morning was included within the price and it was lovely! Overall, we both said...

We visited Northover Manor for a family celebration, the location was lovely and the day was great until it came to having our meal. We were concerned as soon as the lady (manager?) stood up to do housekeeping and explain the complaints procedure should we not be happy with the food. We soon found out why. The food was very...

Thankyou for your comments. Im sorry you were disappointed by your experience but Thankfully you are the exception rather than the rule. My confusion however is when you were here and the event that was attended. We hosted a Wedding on 30 th March and the 31st March was Mothers Day. After which Roger and Jenny sent a very complimentary... More

I attended a wedding weekend at northover this week. The hotel was beautiful, clean with beautiful rooms and staff that literally went out of their way to help, they gave me milk for my baby, a beautiful room. Lots of support with the wedding and the manager flick was one in a million. I couldn't have asked for more and... More

I stay in a lot of hotels for business and try to go to family run places rather than the brash chain hotels. This place is the reason why I do this. The service is so personable and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are nice and have just undergone a lick of paint. They are not huge but... More
