Just back from a weekend stay with 5 old school friends - an annual event but our first time in Hereford. About 10 minutes walk out of the town centre in a quiet residential street this beautiful building has spacious and airy rooms which have been tastefully decorated and furnished, with modern bathrooms and fixtures. The rooms are spotless, luxurious,... More

Very civilised & very reasonable mini bar tariff consisting of the highest local quality produce. Well located 5 mins walk into town. Would stay here again and probably will. It is as good as most people say. Thank You for your hospitality Bill, Rita & Co.

We did know we were booking the last room when we booked on the internet and I think we got the worst room. It is up 2 and half flights of stairs in the attic and for the price was very small. The ensuite is as big as the bedroom! Make sure you check if you have difficulty with stairs.... More

We stayed in December for just one night, combining a work trip with a pre-Christmas treat. Our room was large, comfortable and exceptionally clean with two chairs and a large bed which did prove a little uncomfortable as we are used to a mattress topper. The only major potential negative was that our room (12) was in the basement, (as... More

Hereford is an odd town, very little choice when it comes to hotels so you have to pick smart. I have stayed twice and will stay again as the rooms arte clean and the breakfast is great so overall good value for money

Stayed here for a long weekend and had a lovely time. Our room was clean and comfortable with everything we could have needed. Our room was on the top floor with a skylight window, and it was lovely to lie in bed and look at the stars. The ensuite was very spacious with a nice shower, and a lovely view... More

We booked a number of rooms, all of which were superb, comfortable and very clean with every facility we could have wanted. Mine had a beautiful view over Hereford. The place has the feel of an old fashioned upmarket boarding house but with all the comforts of a modern hotel. The breakfasts are enormous and delicious with lots of local... More

We wanted to visit Hereford for a couple of days on our way back from visiting relatives in the north. It is a place we have never been to before so we knew nothing about the area or its accommodation. We found Somerville House after an internet search for hotels in the area, the search criteria being within walking distance... More
