Stayed one night on 28th May and wished it could have been longer. Bedroom spacious despite being called a cosy double (room1). Bathroom generous with plentiful toiletries. Shower a bit hot so be wary. Dinner was very good value and catered for my gluten free diet. Breakfast good with lots of choice. Staff friendly. Outside the gardens are a pleasure... More

We stayed for one night at the weekend. The welcome was very friendly, staff were very helpful and were eager to do anything they could for us. The room was either very new or very recently refurbished. It was in very good order and also had great features, like USB charging points by the bed and a HDMI input linked... More

I stayed for 1 night on 18th May for a business trip. A very warm and friendly welcome from the staff, shown to a very modern and well fitted out room and enjoyed a superb evening meal and breakfast. Bed was a little on the hard side for my liking but still OK. Would definitely visit again if staying in... More

Enthusiastic staff work hard to ensure a pleasant stay. Convenient for several good birdwatching areas and for M5. Good welcome and breakfast as well as pleasant pub food restaurant. Room was clean and comfortable and they were just finishing new rooms, which will presumably be up to the same standard. We will definitely go back when we return to the... More

This is about the 6th time I have stayed at The Bower and glad to say it didn't disappoint once again. I travelled on business and have stayed at a number of places in Bridgwater, but none compare to The Bower, great rooms, great food and really friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in one of their new rooms, was very... More

Stayed overnight for business as booked by a local client in place of the Premier Inn, lovely warm place with a clean room and well refurbished bathroom in what I assume is the old part of the inn. Cannot comment on food but the breakfast was ok... Sausages were exceptionally tasty wish I asked what they were!!! The place is... More

Very hard to comment to such a brief review, not knowing any of the specific issues, - however, I appreciate the loyalty and I am confident you will be happy on your next visit. Regarding vegetarian choice - please always feel free to ask the chef/team if they can offer anything off the menu - all our food is prepared... More

Maybe I was just unlucky as the Inn seems to get a lot of good reviews, but I was left unimpressed with the customer service. I arrived to find the Inn closed, it seems that it is only open during meal times, although this is not made clear on the website (the "opening hours" page only mentions when lunch &... More

Firstly, I am sorry you didn't receive a warm welcome. For clarity, our check in times are always sent with the room booking confirmation and are stated on our web site under T & Cs. Going forward, with the opening of a further 11 bedrooms, our check in times will become more in keeping with other establishments and I expect... More
