After trying various Hotels in Minehead on regular visits to family, my wife and I discovered The Kildare. It is indeed perfectly situated for both driving access to all local areas, and also for walking into town and the sea front attractions. I can only agree with the other satisfied guests and say that the quality is first class in... More

My husband & I stayed with a couple of friends for one night and were extremely pleased with the accommodation, food and service, even the locals were friendly! The building was so interesting with many original fittings and fixtures. When viewing our photos we found window latches, hinges and the huge log fire. Our four posted bed was very comfortable...

We know Minehead well, used to live here. When we return everything is different of course but we discovered that this place is now a great value hotel with good food and a cheery bar. This is where we'll come when return in future. Twice so far, and it gets better.

My Husband and I, to-gether with our adult Daughter, stayed for two night at Kildare Lodge. Our Nephew and Niece from Donegal were with us. We ourselves are from the Wirral. We were all given a very friendly welcome and shown our four rooms. Ours looked over the sea and towards Wales. We were all delighted with them. All clean,... More

I reviewed the restaurant at the Kildare Lodge last year. As local residents, my wife and I eat here, especially when we want to treat visitors to a special meal out. Please read my previous review for my detailed opinion - just to say this time that this time, we took our best friends, staying with us for a few... More

This is truely an amazing place to stay both the location to the town it's quietness, Sarah and Harvey (the owners) are kind,considerate and friendly,nothing is too much trouble. The food is out of this world and the portions are very generous, each meal is prepared fresh upon order and takes a while but it's definately worth the wait. The... More

Whilst I appreciate the cold snap could not be foretold (at least not by hoteliers!) radiator problems could. Even if they couldn't say when the room was booked, the barely tepid radiator in the room should have been mentioned when I arrived. Indeed if it had been mentioned I would have overlooked the uncomfortable chill and given a better rating.... More

You get a very warm & attentive welcome. A Grade 2 listed building in Arts & Crafts style which obviously limits what can be done with decor etc.. Food excellent with generous portions.I cannot think of anything else to say to satisfy the minimum 200 characters required!!
