Thanks to a Living Social 'Deal', my husband & I stayed at this lovely hotel for our recent 39th wedding anniversary. Before booking, I checked differences between rooms with the hotel; so we had a comfortable night in a Kingsize bed with views across the 'knoll', giving the village of Brent Knoll it's name, and surrounding countryside. The owners &... More

We were blown through the entrance door by the strong and icy winds hitting the country, 2 nights ago. Dark and miserable outside, but with a very warm welcome awaiting us inside, including the log fire blazing in the bar area. Comfortable, pretty bedrooms and a delicious dinner chosen from the A la Carte Menu, delightfully served. Charming and well-travelled... More

We stayed here last weekend on a travelzoo deal which was great value. We loved the hotel with its quirkiness. The staff were great friendly & could not do enough for you. It was very busy when we arrived as there was a christening. But we were quickly given our cream tea in the bar. Our room was comfortable with... More

We stayed overnight and had the taster menu. I was a little bit worried that we would be overwhelmed by food but the portion sizes were perfect and it was all delicious. We had a basic room which was small but very comfortable with a decent sized bathroom. The biscuits, water and sherry in the room were nice touches and... More

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

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.
