This is the second time I have stayed at The Old Vicarage and I had another enjoyable stay. The property is full of character, breakfast cooked fresh and plentiful, the team are very friendly and accommodating. I will stay again if down in Bridgwater again.

I booked the hotel through Booking.com for a 1 night stay on the 11/8/14. Its an old building which I can make exceptions for, but the standard is appalling. The room was filthy. Stains on walls, cobwebs on walls, carpet covered in "spots", mattress was old and tired. The room (downstairs, opposite reception) was incredibly noisy, the room above sounded... More

Lovely old building. Lovely staff. The room was dated and a bit pokey but what would you expect in such an old place? Clean. No laundry facilities for international travellers and that is very disappointing .. We need to refresh our clothes at every opportunity and the UK doesn't offer many. Nice though.

We spent a weekend getaway from children and life in general. We stayed in the Somerset Room - very big, four poster bed.Overlooks the church on oneside and the garden on the other. Some noise from late night revellers on the Saturday night but in the centre of town what do you expect? Excellent breakfast including a "build your own"... More

Stopped over for one night on the way back from Cornwall. The town has seen better days and this can also be said of the Hotel. That said the (only) one member of staff that we saw during our visit -and seemed to be the Jack of all trades- was as helpful as could be and in essence made our... More

Situated well in the middle of town. Arrived very late and the only people in the restaurant - however, that didnt matter as the Manager - David provided an excellent and personable service and the food was great! Equally so for breakfast the following morning, freshly cooked and a choice of cereals, fruit juice etc. The hotel is very old... More

This was a birthday surprise so I had no idea where I was going. To say I was pleased would be an understatement. We had The Somerset Room -a huge room with a four poster and sofa. Very comfortable room. Good night's sleep. What we saw of the hotel itself was good - very old and quirky. Breakfast was lovely.... More

The location is perfect - right in the middle of town, with parking and quiet enough to ensure a good night's sleep. It's a beautiful old building, although our room was across the courtyard from the main building. The room was adequate for one night as it was quite small - not enough room even for a chair. Breakfast was... More

Historic hotel, wonky floors, stairs and doors. Well appointed, ticking many boxes. Unfortunately it is in Bridgwater, a town that has seen better days. Hopefully the advent of the nuclear plant gives it a lift; literally.
