We first visited this charming little hotel back in the autumn with another couple on a Travelzoo offer (excellent value for money) and had a very enjoyable time. We have just returned from our second visit - we took a group of sixteen for a Christmas party and overnight stay. The owners were so pleasant and helpful, and were really... More

We went to The Woodlands country house hotel for their Winter taster menu and was really happy with how beautiful the house was, how friendly yet relaxed the service was and how beautiful the food was.The aromas and the flavors were divine and I urge Sarah to put the pig cheeks on the main menu, we were quite nervous and...

Having been to the Woodlands previously for a meal which was good, thought I'd try out the xmas menu. A big disappointment. I found the slice of turkey after I moved a sprout! The meal was luke warm and could only be described as a child's portion. It also wasn't all that flavoursome, the alleged turkey could have been anything.... More

On arrival we were happy with the look of the hotel and the grounds. However the bedroom was not what I would have expected compared to the reception ,bar area and dining room. The bedside table was broken, throws at the end of the beds were very dirty with what looked like straw and milk stains.The plastic shower fell off... More

Before responding to this review I would like to thank this guest for bring the issues raised to my attention when she checked out: •The broken shower riser – I was not aware of this when the guest checked into the room and it was fixed before the next guest was checked into the room. •This room has been scheduled...

Nice quiet location but also handy for m5. our room was a little small but had a bath, every thing was clean and after a nice welcome sat down to cream teas in the bar. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were very good. The food was all ok but nearly everything could have had a bit more seasoning.... More

An excellent overnight stay at this small hotel only 5 minutes from the M5 in Somerset. Friendly hosts and staff, spacious and clean room and well-cooked and presented food. I highly recommend this hotel.

For our second visit our party of four enjoyed a warm welcome and cream tea on arrival, apperatives in the bar, a delicious, imaginative taster menu with the accompanying flight of perfectly matched wine, wonderful cosy rooms then an excellent breakfast before departure.

We stayed at this hotel for a one night seven course taster menu which was purchased from Travel Zoo and we upgraded our room for a total cost of £134.00 per couple for dinner bed and breakfast. We too had a very warm welcome from our hosts and shortly afterwards enjoyed our scone and cream and pot of tea. We... More

As I have stated in previous responses to reviews, we always appreciate constructive comments from our guests which we listen to and act on as necessary. We spend a lot of time and effort on developing our taster menus and working on the presentation, which is generally reflected in the positive responses from our guests. Our dining room has ambient... More

Went with friends for overnight stay and seven course taster menu and paired wines. We all enjoyed the meal enormously.Most of the dishes were quite unusual, but delicious all the same. The wines were well matched with the food and were reasonably priced. The service was excellent in cosy and relaxing surroundings. Our superior bedrooms, for which there was a... More

Like everyone else, it seemed, we were on a Travelzoo deal. For the money it was good value and I'd recommend anyone to go. Room was fine, bed comfortable and breakfast good. Tasting menu was OK, we were somewhat surprised to have turkey burger. Wine pairing was excellent value.
