We were met with a warm and friendly greeting on arrival and were impressed by the attentativeness of the staff throughout our stay. Although our room and en suite were a little small they were very clean and comfortable. The guest lounges were beautifully decorated and very comfortable too. When we realised we could also have an evening meal, we... More

My family have been going to this hotel on & off for 45 years & it has changed hands several times. Despite changing hands, it has been consistently good accomodation & consistently excellent food & atmosphere. However, on my recent visit, things have changed dramatically. We were booked in for half board for two weeks, but only stayed one week.... More

Stayed here in July with my son, we shared a twin room at the back of the house overlooking the car park. I arrived early as my son was attending an interview and was warmly welcomed and was told the room was ready and so I could leave my bags there. A spacious room and very clean. We had a... More

We have just returned from a fabulous four night stay at Somerton Lodge. We booked this hotel purely on the excellent reviews. We checked in early & had a very welcoming start to our short 4 night stay. Room was very clean & décor very fresh and modern. The bar, restaurant & lounge again were very clean & with a... More

Somerton Lodge is a lovely clean and warming Hotel. Great welcome on arrival from staff, quick but efficient tour and information on all we needed to know about the hotel before being shown to our room. The room and en suite was clean and tidy with enough room for 2 people. Dining room, bar and 2 lounges were well looked... More

There is a nice bar area and outside seating area. We had room 12 room which was very nice but the bathroom was extremely small (literally step in and step out... More

The Somerton was definitely value for money, rooms comfortable with en suites. As we were staying for a couple of nights, we used the lounge and bar area in the evenings, very pleasant room. Breakfast was good and the staff very helpful and friendly. Would definitely go back.

We had seen reviews for Somerton Lodge on Laterooms.com. We had planned a weekend break on the Island and for £50 bed and breakfast, we thought it looked very good. The house and gardens are attractive and tidy. The car park at the back is easy to access and with ample parking. We had managed to get an earlier than... More

Hotel was really nice, characteristic building. A little dusty, but we thought it was good for £50. I come from the island and know a few hotels here, would certainly use this one again next time we visit my family.

I was signed for 3 nights and was sorely disappointed. Walls were paper thin and I had to shout through the wall for the next room to quieten down. The shower head was disgusting, see picture. Breakfast was basic and cheap products used. All in all not a good experience. I have to go back a few more times yet... More
