The family chose this as the venue for a wake for my mother in law. It's close to the crematorium and apparently they do over 350 a year. Although the food was adequate, the sandwiches were plain white or brown, cheese, pickle, tuna, chicken or egg. Not very imaginative and some if the bread was rather dry. The quiche was... More

Dear Guest We are very surprised, at your comments about the standard of food, served at your wake, (also amazed ) you waited to say something on the internet, and not while you were at the hotel!!! The sandwiches are served with Tomatoes and Cucumber on the side, and the fillings, are what the majority of our guests request!!! The... More

we recently had a family funeral which meant that myself and my boys had to stay at the Meryan House Hotel over two days as we lived out of the area and the hotel was also hosting the Funeral tea. . Cherry (the owner) was absolutely fantastic. She had so much energy and made sure that we wanted for nothing... More

We recently had a family wake at the Meryan House, the staff were very attentive, friendly and sensitive to the occasion. On booking Cherry was very helpful in advising on the catering. We were unsure how many would attend and ended up with more then we anticipated, but there was still plenty of excellent food. We were recommended this venue... More

We spent 3 nights at this slightly quirky but very comfortable and well-appointed hotel. We were welcomed warmly by the owner, provided with 3 excellent breakfasts and had 3 very good nights' sleep. It's in a village near a pub, within a brisk walk of Taunton centre and has areas worth strolling around from the village. We'll be back .... More

My family and I stayed on 5th January 2014 for my father's wake the following day. On entering we were greeted by the owner, a man that boasted of how many wakes he did in a year... More

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your review. we were both surprised and of course dismayed to hear that your experience with Meryan House Hotel was less than what you had hoped. We say “surprised” as it has been almost one full year since we had the pleasure of your company and we know not whether the passage of... More

Bedrooms vary, each one is different from a small twin to larger rooms including one with a canopy over an antique bed. The owner, Sherry, is always available and very helpful. Prices very... More

Lovely little find when Taunton business hotels were fully booked. Really friendly welcome from Cherry. The mattress is my big find as it is super soft and deep - such a comfy bed!
