We booked an overnight stay to break our journey between the Highlands and Southern England. We found the hotel to be generally good, but one or two things could be improved. We had a large room overlooking the front of the hotel but the lack of any nets to the windows made it a bit of a 'goldfish' bowl and... More

The hotel has some stunning original features, and the décor is just... More

I have been frequenting the Somerton House Hotel restaurant for over twenty years and I must say that I have never been let down, not even once. The proprietor, a genial Irishman, never lets the grass grow under his feet and obviously reinvests the profits into his business. He is forever upgrading and refurbishing the premises and, on this last... More

Well done again to All Staff at The Somerton for a FANTASTIC CHRISTMAS LUNCH!!! Everything from the first point of contact (meeting Santa) to our relaxing drink after our 5 course meal was BRILLIANT!!!! We have been going here for the past 7 years for our Christmas meal and always leave fully stuffed and satisfied.
