My family stayed at Combe House's Thatched House and we truly loved it. It gave us treasured time together amidst the beauty of the English countryside. A 'welcome cake' at the house was a nice touch as were the warm croissants that were brought to us each morning. We also dined at the excellent restaurant and thought highly of the... More

Our friends raved over this hotel and on our way down to the West Country we decided to call in for lunch. It is well off the beaten track and a little hard to find down a narrow road but set in beautiful countryside. The building itself is rather ugly but inside the style is very much English country house... More

I recently enjoyed an evening meal at Combe House and was not only impressed by the beautiful setting and the meal but by the outstanding and genuine good service. Nothing was too much trouble and later that evening I realised I had lost a piece of jewellery and they very kindly searched the grounds, found it, then posted it back... More

The hotel is old but well kept and appointed. The rooms is nice and big but very old floors creaking all the time. The bathroom is very small and can only accomodate one person at a time. Shower over the bath. Linen and towels of good quality. Very nice path path to walk on for recreation. The restaurant serves excellent... More

Love this place, the staff are excellent, the food is innovative and delicious and the setting is stunning. Yes it is expensive but you get what you pay for - a really nice place for a special occasion and I visit on every birthday. The chef writes happy birthday on my dessert plate too - i love the extra attention... More

We have lunched, dined & stayed here often. Ken & Ruth have been excellent hosts and we have eaten and drank some very good stuff. Have only stayed in their 'good rooms', so don't know about the normal ones and have always spent regardless of cost, so for me it's just heaven.

This beautiful and ancient country house hotel and restaurant lies in the heart of some superlative English countryside located at the end of their own long drive.  Welcoming staff. The interior is superb. Everything one would want in your centuries old family seat! Food is very good, verging on perhaps a Michelin star territory. Much local sourcing and they have... More

This is a special place. I find it hard to understand some of the negative comments. We visited to celebrate a significant family event. The party was 24 strong, ages ranging from 85 to 11. Everything about the weekend was superb. The staff were welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were fabulous. We had 8 of them... More

Following a recent personal recommendation, my wife and I dined recently at Coombe House for the first time.We were welcomed on arrival and following pre-dinner drinks with canapés in the bar, were shown to a nice window table with a lovely outlook. The food quality, flavour and presentation was excellent and the rather modest wine list, adequate. However, the experience... More

This hotel promised so much and we really wanted to like it but came away very disappointed. There are some positive points - the staff are excellent and the location is wonderful, the food was good - but this is negated by other factors. I completely understand that as a listed building there are limitations as to what can be... More
