This jewel in the Somerset Crown was recommended to me by a close friend, so I decided to try it out. I`m so glad I did. My most comfortable stay in this delightful hotel provided much needed reassurance that really good quality hotels, offering hearty food food and outstanding hospitality do still exist in England. The owner delivered a warm... More

Had the Willow Room, comfortable bed and lovely pillows! Nice touch with teacups and teapot, good furnishings. Dinner pretty good, although not sure overdone root veg was the best choice with the well cooked duck. Very nice bar and comfy lounge. I was looking forward to the fresh eggs from the chickens in the garden and home cured bacon -... More

Not being able to get a signal on my mobile broadband I was unable to go online in the car and search for somewhere to stay in central Somerset. So for once I relied upon my Satnav (who I call Shirley) to locate for me somewhere to have dinner and sleep overnight. Finding a hotel in this way can be... More

Stayed at this fantastic family run hotel on a Thursday night. Gorgeous georgian house. Lots of original features. You must bear in mind the age of the building and accept its foibles such squeaky floor boards. The evening meal was beautifully presented. Perfectly cooked and seasoned to perfection.I have in the past paid hundreds of pounds for a meal that... More

I recently stayed for a week whilst on business. Positives: The room was of a very generous size, the staff helpful and the food excellent. Negatives I was a little surprised to have a charge of £20 for printing 22 pages of an excel spreadsheet placed on my bill, I recognise that every service has a charge but after paying... More

Another year goes by and yet another great reunion. Choice of venue was superb, the hotel was very comfortable and accomodating, the food excellent and a good time was had by all. If you want a quiet getaway break this is the place, a quaint village with a great hotel.

Having booked a room as advertised I was advised by the receptionist to consider an upgrade as the room we had seen advertised on the internet was very basic - I protested that the photos on the net were the rooms advertised - not so, these were special high quality upgrades at an extra £25 a night. Hooked, we paid... More

Unfortunately I am unable to respond to most of your review as your aware this is going through a legal case and is currently being dealt with by both parties lawyers, all I would say is of course we have different grades of rooms and each is individually decorated and we can not show every room on our website however...

The booking procedure did seem a little strange but I have to say we experienced no problems whatsoever. We contacted the hotel by telephone first to... More

I phoned the hotel and asked whether I could use Wowcher vouchers for consecutive dates and was told yes. So I purchased the 2 vouchers which promised a 3 course dinner with wine. The Manager then told me that I could not use the 2 vouchers together, and that the free dinner was only one course. So I had to... More
