Staying here following a family wake at the hotel. The wake went very well, organised excellently by the hotel. Our stay could not have gone better. Lovely room, delicious evening meal, friendly efficient staff. Excellent country house hotel. Highly recommend.

We celebrated a significant anniversary here having found a good value deal with Travelzoo with a £40 off voucher for use in the restaurant. We made good use of the lovely Spa area and also had a couple of massage/ body scrub treatments which were excellent. If you book these at short notice they will offer a 15% discount as... More

This was without doubt the best weekend break we've had for a long time. The location was so peaceful - early morning mists and the leaves just turning - views to distant scenery. The food was excellent. In particular the venison I had as a starter was so tender and full of flavour. One tiny quibble - a 'selection of... More

My wife and I stayed at the Mount Somerset from 5th October 'til 8th (three nights). Our objective was to chill out for the three days. We are both in our 70s. We made use of the spa - and found it to be excellent. All facilities worked well and were easy to 'switch on / off'. We also had... More

Stayed for two nights, on a Secret Escapes deal that included a dinner and cream tea. We found the staff helpful and pleasant, with the exception of the receptionist on our first evening. This was a Friday night and our room was directly above a raucous fancy dress party. It was impossible to rest with such noise and disturbance we... More

We recently stayed at the hotel and hired a private room for a mini wedding celebration. From the moment we arrived the staff were accommodating and treated the recent bride and groom very well. We all had wonderful rooms which were bigger than the average hotel room, beautifully decorated and with stunning bathrooms. Our evening meal was also superb, a... More

Stayed whilst in area for a wedding. Terrible hotel. Nothing close to International standards. Like going back in time. Despite recent renovations to rooms, they are unclean and not well kept. We found lots of insects (dead and alive), cobwebs, suspicious stains on sofa and many broken light bulbs in our room. Strange smell from lavatory. Biscuits in our room... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in early July to have a quiet break mid-week. Overall we enjoyed the hotel, but there were a few points that could be improved. The room was larger than we expected with a king sized bed and separate seating area. The attention to detail was great. There were some nice biscuits... More

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
