I and my family visited this hotel for my son's 50th birthday this weekend. We stayed overnight and had a meal in the restaurant that evening. The rooms were excellent, and the food was also excellent. We arrived early so had lunch there, as well. All in all a very good experience and we would recommend this hotel to anyone... More

We found this a welcoming and professionally run establishment. The room was clean with a comfortable bed. It was similar to the better Best Western chain of hotels. We stayed one night as a stop over on the way to Cornwall for a holiday. For this purpose it was ideal being half way to our destination. The restaurant had a... More

I stayed here with my partner for one night costing £94 for us both with breakfast. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and attentive. We had dinner while there and everything seemed fresh and worth the money. The best part was breakfast. Huge choice and as much as you want served in the lovely bright... More

Visited a few times now with friends for the steak and fish night. Always good value for money, friendly service and good food. Easy enough to pay a bit more for wine above house wine. Staff friendly just a shame it isn't used more, can't work out why maybe a bit of face lift would help.

Not a good experience. The rooms were large but the decor was hideous but more importantly the stink in the communal area and room was worse than a mass grave in the dessert!!! This is not a nice place to stay - one saving grace was the elderly lady waitress at breakfast who kept making jokes about sausages - wink,... More

We are completely puzzled by your comments, simply because we have no trace of any such smell or of... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel for a one night stay in the area to see Rod Stewart in concert in Taunton. At first we were concerned that we were a little too far from the venue. We were made to feel very welcome by the team at the hotel, definately a home from home. Lovely big... More

Travelled alone for business and was a bit nervous to be on my own. The young lady on reception was lovely, and especially great service from little Dan at the bar. Took wonderful care of me and was very attentive, even bringing me his own paper. Good size room, lots of parking and a good selection in the restaurant (although... More
