We had our wedding reception at the Mount Somerset on the 8th November. From start to finish the process dealing with Amelia, Amy and Dean was fantastic and all the staff helped make our day everything we wished for. We took over the hotel and our guests commented highly on their beautiful bedrooms and the incredible food. The hotel fed... More

Took my Mother to the Mount Somerset for Afternoon Tea & spa day as a surprise. On arrival, it took a while for staff to acknowledge our presence and, having pre-booked, I was expecting to be greeted a little more promptly with more recognition of our planned visit. Despite this, staff were friendly and showed us to the lounge. The... More

Just returned from a lovely two night break here. The hotel itself is in a beautiful Georgian building which has been sympathetically extended and refurbished. The grounds and drive up to the hotel are very attractive. Our room, with a separate sitting area, was spacious and well-furnished and the public areas such as the lounge/bar and dining room are richly... More

We stayed for one night and had a most enjoyable time. The hotel is lovely and staff were very welcoming, but we felt they lacked a little of the finesse we have found at other Eden Collection hotels such as Mallory Court- for example one lonely cube of ice in a drink and no lemon offered. Waitress came with tray... More

My friends and family booked under the "Sunday night special offer", with deluxe room, sunday lunch and spa session. The spa is brilliant, we trotted over there in our fluffy gowns and slippers and had a really relaxing morning, steam room, jacuzzi, foot spa and bucket of ice water over the head - we should all do it once in...

We spent a lovely weekend here in October, just as a short break to celebrate a birthday. We were lucky enough to book via a travel site special offer for bed and breakfast and with an automatic upgrade to a deluxe room. We were very impressed with both the room and the service we received. Unusually for us we decided... More

There were 8 adults and two children for a meal on the Saturday evening and an overnight stay to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The staff couldn't have done any more for us, the rooms were lovely, beautifully furnished and decorated with lovely bathrooms. and there wasn't one complaint from any of us. The staff were attentive but not obtrusive.... More
