My wife and I were spending time in Somerset based around a business meeting so made a weekend of it, and decided to stay at the Mount as a treat. The room was well furnished and clean, the bar food was excellent, and throughout the hotel staff seemed keen to help out as much as they could. Cooked breakfast was... More

We had a business meeting in the room to the right of the front entrance - roomy and clean with period decor. It all felt very authentic. Service was attentive, unobtrusive and diligent. Food good. Would go again for similar or lunch/dinner with my wife.

Much about this hotel could qualify as 'luxury grade' and it is very attractive. However, there are aspects that just do not measure up and that is the reason I have, reluctantly, given it only an average rating. I have read some of the other reviews and generally agree that more could be done to upgrade facilities. Reception was somewhat... More

A really lovely hotel, fantastic guest room with a Nespresso machine, great restaurant, the food was amazing. The grounds are also really nice, a really great stay. This was a business trip and the conference room facilities worked really well for our team of ten or so attendees.

We visited this hotel last September for a 'baby-moon' and to celebrate our 1 year wedding Anniversary. We were looking to get away from work and relax for a few days but this is not what we got. The hotel is nice to look at and the rooms are very beautiful but the hotel was advertised as a spa getaway... More

I had the pleasure of staying for a night at this hotel whilst on business recently. The hotel sits grandly on a hill, overlooking the rolling, typically English countryside surrounding it. The day was sunny and warm and the atmosphere relaxed. My room was surprisingly large and tasteful, with a comfortable lounge, lovely king-sized bed and impressive bathroom. Walking around... More

I would have given this hotel 4 stars. The rooms were really nice - better than I expected. The food was good. The service when you asked for something was friendly and helpful. However, and this is a big one for me, the rooms were not serviced properly. You simply can't offer a turn-down service then leave wet towels and... More

Overall the night stay here was pleasant, the staff were friendly and helpful, the service was very good with canapés before dinner, and dinner was excellent. The room was very nice with a great view from the window, however when we went to bed the framework of the bed was so loose every time one of us turned over we... More
