We have just had a wedding anniversary meal at the Mount Somerset and had a really good experience. The hotel is a little bit on the old fashioned side but it all adds to the charm. The staff are attentive and not too intrusive unless you want to chat; the food was really good and not just the expected courses,... More

My friend and I stayed at Mount Somerset Hotel. There was double bed we asked manager to separate. She said she could not. We asked for another room she said we would have to pay 100 more. We said we did not have this and asked for another hotel and she refused. She got angry when we said this was... More

Great to find a great improvement since last time we stayed at the Mount Somerset. The staff and service were noticeably better, friendly polite and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. Sadly our stay was let down by the dining...We stayed 2 nights and having booked a dinner inclusive package, we were offered the same VERY limited set... 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
