Cue this scene: an imposing Victorian villa set in a quiet tree-lined road, amicably run by our hosts Bill & Rosie, who provide the kind of accommodation and gentrified repose that is essential after traipsing around the region. We set with drinkies on the terrace, as well as, the lovely lounge overlooking the pretty garden. An upgrade was offered to... More

We have just returned from a weekend in Hereford & spend 2 nights at Somerville House. We had a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Somerville. Our room (a superior double) was large & spacious & the bed was huge & comfy. The bathroom was clean & bright with a bath & powerful shower with plenty of hot... More

I've stayed at Somerville House on a number of occasions in the past, and this stay was as good as usual. Great rooms, awesome breakfast and friendly welcome from Rosie, Bill and the team. The location is great for walking into the city but also quiet enough to get some sleep.

I booked Somerville House after reading the reviews and seeing the high star rating and as a result I was expecting a 5 star stay. For myself, I do not feel this is what I received. Now, do not get me wrong, the owners are particularly friendly, nor did I have any specific issues and there are some nice touches... More

We enjoyed a weekend in August 2014 staying at Somerville House and singing in the cathedral. The hotel is a little outside of the centre, which adds to the walking time (though we found the taxis to be cheap and plentiful) but does mean we weren't troubled by any noise from outside. The hotel is nicely decorated, comfortable, and served... More

This Victorian house is a lovely and welcoming place. The rooms are large, well appointed with the best minibar we've ever seen (full of local goodies -not just alcohol - at high street prices). Owners and their staff were really friendly and accommodating, and the food and comfort was of the highest level. Definitely recommend for all types of visitor.

Stayed for one night mid-week in Aug. This is a fabulous B&B. We received a very warm welcome from them on arrival. We had a twin room on the ground floor, that had everything you needed for a welcoming stay from the toiletries to the well stocked mini-bar. The breakfast was yummy with a wide selection of things available, they... More

We stayed here for something of a family get together using 3 rooms for 3 nights. The rooms were all good sizes with large bathrooms and plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits etc and lovely toiletries. The mini bar was well stocked and the weather was lovely so we took advantage of the large terrace overlooking the beautiful garden. It was... More

This is a fabulous B & B. We totally enjoyed our stay. The room was beautiful and quite big. There was everything in the room, hairdryer, ironing board, mini fridge and Tea making facilities. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and the staff were superb.

We stayed as part of a large group of families travelling to Hereford for a wedding - 9 rooms in all. We received a very warm welcome from Lesley who couldn't have done more for us -arranging hair appointments for some of the higher maintenance ladies and printing boarding passes for the technologically challenged. Lauren and Meg looked after us... More
