We visited this hotel again for a short break - with friends this time. I find it hard to fault the hotel. The rooms are lovely and clean with comfortable beds. The food is very good and the staff are helpful and pleasant. We had booked 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast and did consider seeing if we could stay... More

We had exclusive use of the Hotel for our wedding. We couldn't fault anything. The events organiser Amelia was amazing and on hand at anytime to help on the lead up and also on the day to ensure everything went to plan. The venue itself is beautiful, all of the bedrooms are immaculate, with comfy beds, great views and stunning... More

I stayed here with my wife for a friend's wedding with exclusive use of the hotel. It's a short distance from Taunton but sufficiently far to feel like you are in the middle of the countryside. The room was spacious, well kitted out with an incredibly comfy bed. The bathroom was gorgeous with a walk in shower and deep free... More

Stayed for one night en route to Cornwall. Very easy to find. Gorgeous room with roll top bath and walk in shower. Bed was comfortable and room was immaculate. Lovely little touches with fruit and homemade cookies, and a decent coffee machine. Lovely relaxing lounge/bar area, with open fires and comfy sofas, perfect for pre dinner drink and coffee after....

Dear deecee22, Thank you very much for your delightful review. We are a great place to 'stopover' on the way to Cornwall - a lot of guests like to break their journeys up! We recently had our Nespresso machines put into the bedrooms and they have proved very popular. I'm glad you enjoyed the tasting menu - a good way... More

My husband had planned a surprise birthday treat here for a spa day which included a cream tea. On arrival the staff were friendly, the spa is in a separate building outside of the hotel itself. We were shown to the building and informed of where the changing rooms were and spa facilities. The changing rooms were tiny you could... More

Dear Hannah995, Thank you for your recent review and a belated Happy Birthday to you. Unfortunately at times we do have to close the hydrotherapy bath whilst we manage high/low levels of chlorine in the pool, which is tested at regular intervals throughout the day. This can result in some frustration for our guests, but it is imperative that these... More

Four of our dear friends joined my husband and me to celebrate my 70th birthday. The rooms were luxurious and very well appointed indeed. We all had supper in the dining room and it was simply delicious. The staff were all most attentive and charming. Although it was early in February and the weather was cold, the hotel was warm...

Pros.: Beautiful views over the Quantocks. Nice room with a fabulous bathroom. Nespresso machine, water and fruit provided in the room. Nice food, although quite a wait for the cooked breakfast, toast cold when the food arrived. Lounge bar very impressive, but quite often no bar staff visible. Our 7 course tasting dinner was nice, but served in a rapid... More

Dear IvanaUk, Many thanks for your recent review. It is great to hear you liked the bedroom with the views over the Quantocks and Blackdown hills. It was disappointing to learn that you felt the tasting dinner was served too quickly and I have spoken to the relevant heads of departments with regards to this. We do like to acknowledge... More

We stayed in Barrington for three nights in this lovely Regency house. The staff were all very helpful with a few issues. Mikey the extremely laid back barman helped sort out my vegetarian menu when we arrived for lunch. The chefs produced a superb menu which changed daily & was very innovative. We would recommend the food most highly. Dean... More

We had a lovely one night stay in a deluxe double room after getting a Travelzoo voucher, which also included a 7 course tasting menu and breakfast. The hotel was easy to find within a short drive of Taunton. On approach it's quite charming with the appeal of an old country manor set in pretty grounds with views overlooking the... More
