The car park was full of Bentleys and other high value cars (most of them belonging to friends) - we were here to celebrate our friend's birthday party at Le Talbooth. Our room had everything one needed, there's even a small fridge offering complimentary soft drinks. Our room was very hot but a modern air con fan was in the... More

My initial thoughts on this hotel/restaurant when booked through work was 'wow'. I checked in, found my way to my room and upon initial reaction, was ''wowed' again. The room was a superior room and was a great space, hip deco, and all was well. I went to use the loo and the seat broke. No big deal.... This situation... More

Visited for Sunday lunch, was really busy, but managed to get a table after 5mins. Starters were good, tasty & well presented. Unfortunately both main courses were dry and over cooked. Disappointing! I have had some very good meals here, but the last few have been quite "hit & miss".

We found this hotel to be excellent - the room was very good with top of the range fittings. The staff were pleasant and helpful, even to the extent of speedily removing from the room an unwelcome visitor of the 8-legged variety. The well tended gardens were a delightful burst of colour and the dining room was beautiful. Will definitely... More

Visited this week and have to say I thought the hotel was better than the official 3 star rating. The room was warm, but as soon as I walked in the dyson fan was whirring away which was a nice touch. The wifi didn't reach my room which was just a minor irritation, but considering how these things govern our... More

The room was small and very hot when we walked in, the hotel obviously knew about this and had provided a Dyson fan, but it did no good. We got to bed at about 1 am and In spite of having the window open and the fan on we got no sleep as I was just too hot. Then at... More

We were invited to stay here for a friends birthday, and this was a bit of a treat for us as the price label reflects some luxury. The hotel is decorated really nicely. The room was nice, with a lovely bathroom, a couple of low points for us were, the room was extremely hot (and the weather wasn't), and there... More

On arriving with our friends for a one night stay for our anniversary, we were told we had been given a free upgrade. Great start. Our rooms were all spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. There was a very up to date fan on as we entered the room and this made us think uh oh, no air con! Well considering... More

We were given a present of a night at Milsoms - stayed last week. The staff are charming and helpful. A mojito on the Terrace before dinner was one of the best I have ever had. Our room - a standard room - was fine, with a very comfortable large bed, sofa, tea making facilities and a decent sized bathroom.... More

Fabulous setting. Sat out in the large garden area drinking wine. This is a must do if you are in this area. Food superb, and perhaps the best duck fat chips ever tasted! Rooms very nice, modern and very clean. Meal was not expensive,, but worth it. Staff nice, if a touch non communicative.
