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

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

Absolutely love this hotel, but this visit was such a disappointment. The room we had was on the left hand older dude of the hotel. Very wibbly wobbly - but that's ok character it's just the bed was on a slope too! We were woken by deliveries no less than 3 times. Dinner was ok, it was good, but the... More

We stayed here for two nights using a Travelzoo voucher, which included a 7 course "taster" menu. Our room was comfortable and spacious with a good sized sitting area and a lovely bathroom. The staff were polite and very helpful and the food was good too. The stay was good value, however I would have not been happy to pay... More

Brought my mum here for her 80th birthday for a champagne afternoon tea, together with my two boys age 11 and 8. Was a little concerned about booking this having phoned twice one evening only to be told by the lady answering the phone that she couldn't find the diary. Having perservered and phoned back the following day I was... More

Sometimes you are treated as second rate when on a reduced rate.At Mount Somerset we got the full works. Large bedroom ... enormous ,comfortable , bed.....big bathroom. Great food....we had the tasting menu.....too much ....had to share courses to manage! Great views of the countryside.

I visited The Mount Somerset with a friend after I bought her a 'Half Day Spa Experience' for her Birthday. To begin with I was a little disappointed with the 'voucher' itself. I've bought vouchers for other Spa's such as Buff in Taunton which come beautifully presented, this one looked as though someone had printed it straight from Microsoft Word... More
