This is a beautiful Regency mansion that is just off the M5 half way between Bristol and Exeter. Not in my normal type for a stopover business hotel but everywhere was so full - hotels doing well in the West me thinks. Anyway got this on laterooms for a reasonable figure though it is not cheap but the attention to... More

We were due to go to this hotel As a spa break back in July - unfortunately due to a bereavement we couldnt make our original booking. Initially the hotel were reluctant to honour the booking at a later date - nevertheless they did which we were very grateful for. We went away for a night booked as a spa... More

Many thanks for your review and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay after your sad news.

We are really pleased you managed to relax and hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon. More

Booked dog-friendly luxury hotel with spa, looking for country walks in Exmoor area. Too far from Exmoor, but near other lovely countryside. Room was large, well-furnished, good bathroom. Reception and housekeeping staff very friendly. Grounds attractive (sloping lawns, sunny terrace, well-kept) as befits wedding venue. Spa seemed very pricey, so we skipped it. Main problem was breakfast. Dinner was well-cooked,... More

This is excellently located. The room combined the old-world charm of a Regency mansion with modern amenities and a beautiful, luxurious bathroom. The lounge and dining areas are decadent, however - tastefully decorated. The staff were wonderfully courteous and helpful. The food served in the dining room was delicious. As a vegan, the chef catered for my tastes and cooked... More

I recently had a wonderful day at the Spa here - was booked on a voucher which included a full afternoon tea. This was my second visit to Mount Somerset and once again a very enjoyable day. The staff were extremely helpful, and the surroundings and spa beautiful. The tea was absolutely fantastic, delicious sandwiches, cakes and lovely warm scones.... More

We stayed for just one night on a mini break after our wedding. For this reason we booked a garden room with a hot tub. The room and the hot tub were brilliant, it looks out into the grounds and therefore was incredibly private. We ordered drinks and food on room service the food portions were small and the drinks...

Dear Hoxley, Firstly, congratulations on your recent wedding! I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay and that you liked out hot tub rooms. They are delightful and enjoy a sunny position. I am sorry you felt our breakfast selection was not great, as we do try to provide as many options both Continental and cooked, as we... More

I booked a night here for my girlfriends birthday, and I have to say we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a Suite, although it was one of the more pricey rooms I wasn't disappointed, the bedroom was spacious, luxurious and comfortable, and the bathroom was magnificent. We also decided to have a meal in the restaurant, although the food... More

We visited the Mount for a night to get away from it all, and it worked. The hotel had excellent friendly and helpful staff in all areas. The rooms were very big with all facilities and had everything we needed, the only thing missing was decaf coffee on the coffee tray, however, I am sure they would oblige. The food... More

We booked our one night spa break as a special offer via a third party social living website so it was a special price for room, breakfast, cream tea and full use of all facilities. There was also a discount of 15% off spa treatments which we were determined to make use of. The hotel website has some appealing photos... More

We wanted to go somewhere special to enjoy a nice meal, and chose Mount Somerset as it was highly recommended. However, we felt very disapointed. We were seated on a broken chesterfield prior to dinner. Then, I had a fly in my wine and my husband found shell in his crab, and the sauce in my dish had split. To... More

Dear KMHBHH, I am obviously deeply disappointed to read your comments regarding your experience at The Mount Somerset. This experience is not to our usual high standards and as other guests have noted, 'best scallops in a long time', 'credit to the chef', 'the food was excellent' I would really appreciate the opportunity to discuss your comments with you directly....
