Arrived late and had a good dinner on arrival. The member of staff (Son?), we were served by let the place down. Unwashed with filthy fingernails really put us off. The room was ok, shame a rug was placed to cover up heavy stains. It could not cover the filthy carpet. Overall for the money the place was OK for... More

I booked a room in the afternoon and confirmed that we wouldn't be able to check-in until midnight as we were travelling from far. At 10.30pm I had a voicemail from the owner saying that check-in closes at 11pm, and "it gets very tricky to get in then doesn't it?" in a sarcastic tone. I rang him back at 11.30pm... More

Had a very pleasant stay at this village inn, good breakfast and a comfy bed what more could you need. The location of this accommodation is ideal for walkers and is also a dog friendly pub. The beer is good too.

Spent two nights here. A very friendly family run hotel, nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was freshly cooked too order. If your looking for value for money and don't care about the posh bedspread then this is the place. Would we return or recommend the Penscot Inn, defiantly.

Went to a family wedding in Wedmore and five of us stayed in this venue from Friday to Sunday morning. We were made most welcome by the lady of the house and shown to the three rooms we had booked. We ate in the restaurant that evening and all of our meals were cooked to our separate requirements and of... More

Just stayed for 1 night on our way down to Devon. It's a very old building that would certainly benefit from being spruced up a bit. The staff were very good and friendly, the food good and a good comfortable bed. Also good beer and dog friendly.
