Me and my partner stayed here as we had a wedding to attend at nearby Lyde Court. We chose it because of the ratings on trip advisor. On arriving we were promptly given entry after ringing the bell and checked in by a lady who I think may have been the owner. She was helpful and polite, asking us where... More

After my utter disaster with Fownes Hotel in Worcester the day before I arrived late at night to Somerville House somewhat disgruntled and dishevelled. I was met with a lovely welcome at Somerville House though it was late at night and had the benefit of a cool beer from the minibar and a snug bed before falling into a deep... More

This stands as an exemplar of how to run an upper end guest house. The rooms are spacious and contain many little touches which show how much the hosts value the comfort of their guests. From a well stocked tea tray to a good selection of toiletries in the bathroom - these are the little extra points that make a... More

We use Somerville as our base when visiting this part of the world, and find it a wonderful place to rest, relax and enjoy some hearty and good quality tasty breakfasts. Each room has a different character but all are very comfortable and a good nights rest is assured.

Stayed a couple of nights. Very comfortable and welcoming. Room 5 was a good size, clean and the bed comfortable. The view we had looked out onto the Black Mountains with Hereford Cathedral rising up in the middle distance. Shower was not brilliant, but it was functional. Full English breakfast was very good, highlighted by Rosie's excellent home-made whisky marmalade,... More

Well its a five star B&B in Hereford but believe me you will not find better for your money. Rosie greeted us on arrival and nothing was overlooked, she delivered the greeting exceptionally well and covered all the details making our stay 'home from home'. Breakfast was very nice, even if Bill did forget the order details occasionally (sorry Bill)... More

Great B&B in Hereford. Beautiful old house with spectacular views and grounds. Stayed in room 9 at the back and large picture windows looked out over the garden. Huge comfortable room with bed, sitting area, and desk. Bathroom very modern. Despite being across the hall from the breakfast room it was very quiet and we were never disturbed. Breakfast was...

Owners charming friendly and very helpful. Room 11 downstairs very comfortable but no view, upgraded to room 5 which is a large room with a splendid view of the garden and the hills. Home from home. Our only minor moan is there was visible dust and cobwebs in the bathroom and bedroom. Particularly noticeable on the wooden unit in the... More

Hi Gemima999, Thanks so much for your review! We were shocked to see you had been assailed by cobwebs and dust in your room when you were here! As you will see from other reviews this is most unusual, as we are usually rated sparky clean! I immediately ordered a survey of dust and cobwebs for eradication the day your... More

We've been coming here for a couple of years now and it always impresses with the standard of comfort and service. It's a short walk from the town centre (or stagger back!). Breakfasts are outstanding, using local produce and catering to most if not all dietary preferences and requirements. Rooms are large and well furnished, particularly the superior rooms (these...
