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

The menu choices were varied and appealing, and the service was really quick. Every member of staff was warm and friendly. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented. As the evening went on and the... More

We stayed at this hotel en route to Plymouth and were delighted by the welcome given by the friendly receptionist. Our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean despite a rather tired carpet. Large bathroom with very long bath. Superb quality towels and toiletries. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided. Room was peaceful despite central village location. Breakfast was excellent with very...

We spent one night here - an experience which we will definitely repeat. Good food and very friendly helpful staff. Comfortable rooms and good beds! Very convenient access from M5 but very peaceful location.
