I loved the breakfast which is part of the room rate. This is a long term stay property. The big disappointment of my stay was the terrible wifi availability……this is... More

We rented a 3 bedroom apartment in Somerset and think it is superb. The highlight are the staff in reception who couldn't be more accommodating, they make us feel so welcome and have sorted out all our niggles really quickly.

I have stayed here on two occasions, separated by a four year hiatus. On the second occasion it was noticeable how the lack of maintenance and upgrading had taken their toll on this hotel. We noticed the worn and stained nature of the furniture, scarred by cigarettes and grubby fingers. I an age where modern communications are an accepted part... More

Enjoyed a hot cheese omelette every morning. Awesome. With just my wife and myself, we had much more space than we needed, with a fully furnished kitchen, 3 TVs, a DVD player, 2 bedrooms (1 king and 2 doubles), and 3 Internet hookups. We had everything we needed down to hangers, toaster, and our own washer in the room. It... More
