Cleanliness very poor, bedroom smelt of smoke, access to car park (via fire escape) littered with cigarette ends, cans and other litter. Breakfast poorly organised. disappointed as with a bit of thought and effort it could be a useful place to stay. Glad to get out of it.

Stayed here after a wedding for one night for the first and last time. Because of the scheduled live music night (until 1.30 am) the pleasant girl who booked us in had thoughtfully changed our room from no. 1 - directly above the bar, to no. 4 - directly above the rear courtyard/pub entrance. How in God's name they can... More

Stayed for two nights in June as this hotel was the cheapest available and near to relatives that we were visiting. Car park is tiny and a bit difficult to find but we managed to park ok. Car park is also locked at night so no worries about security. We arrived early but were made very welcome and we were... More

This is cheap and cheerful but would use this hotel again. It is not the Savoy but great value for money and I had a good stay. Staff were attentive and efficient, the room was more than adequate with a lovely big bath, lashings of hot water and had everything I needed for my stay. It is in the town... More

Stayed at the mermaid for 1 night to see my daughter, and found that it was the cheapest in the area so I wasn't expecting the Ritz or anything like that. It was nice and clean which is always the main thing with me and nice and quiet but my room was well away from bars or cars. The room... More

This is cheap accommodation in the centre of Yeovil, and I have reviewed it with this is mind. I'm used to staying in questionable B&Bs with work, but if I had paid for this hotel room myself, I would be disappointed and angry. It is not the worst I've stayed in, but it's the little, avoidable things that let it... More

I'm sorry to hear how disappointed you were with your stay I will have words with the cleaners about the shared bathrooms. We don't use bars of soap we have dispensers in the showers. Also we have 14 rooms 11 of which are en suite, only 3 are not. I totally understand about the noise from the street outside but... More
