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

We stayed here for three nights as a part of a largish group of friends, on the recommendation of one of the group. We found the hotel is relatively to find, with ample parking. We arrived rather early, but were given a hugely warm welcome. Our room was large, well-furnished, quiet and comfortable. (We particularly commend the mini-bar, and its... More

Splendid hospitality and a warm, friendly welcome awaits at Somerville - despite our inordinately early arrival we were served tea on the sun terrace. Throughout our short stay Rosie & Bill went out of their way to provide every comfort and assistance. All rooms have a well-stocked minibar at very reasonable prices and a very thoughtful range of toiletries is... More

I stayed there for one single night in a single room - a last minute booking, but very good price. The room although was slightly small - was very neatly kept, with all facilities that I sometimes even have not found in star rated hotels. The place has a car park and they provide a very good breakfast with plenty... More

First time I stayed I was offered a pot of tea and cake in the garden on arrival on a Sunday afternoon. The weather was sunny and the south facing back garden was glorious. Room was well equipped with fridge, stocked with drinks, alcohol and snacks. Owners are lovely people, experienced in the hospitality trade and work hard to ensure... More

The Somerville House was recommended to us by Visit Herefordshire tourist agency and we were not disappointed. What a lovely 4 days we had in Hereford and staying in the Somerville House made it all the better. Located within walking distance of 'high town', the cathedral, and other points of interest in Hereford was very convenient. The room (#4) looked... More

Oops, I stayed here last year and forgot to write a review so sorry Rosie and Bill but better late than never. This lives up to its five star rating. Others have commented in the excellence if the rooms (5 and 10 seem to be the best) and the comments in the breakfast are well deserved. If in Hereford I... More

My friends and I stayed here for five nights. Breakfast was excellent especially Rosie's homemade jam and marmalade. Delicious! Our rooms were lovely, both overlooking the garden. My room on the ground floor was superb, it was extremely comfortable with lovely decor and shower room. It was very spacious too. The fantastic bay window overlooked the beautiful garden, with the...
