We only stayed the one night as part of a coach party, but we were treated as an individual party, the staff were very helpful, especially Kirstin the young lady who waited at our table, and the bar staff who unlocked the bar that was closed in order to serve me a malt whiskey I liked.

Beautiful hotel with fantastic staff! Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and passengers very satisfied with the standard of service. The waiting staff in Flames restaurant were very friendly and attentive. The surrounding scenery is beautiful and a visit to the local pub the heart in hand also has a very welcoming atmosphere and some nice real ales!

I use a lot of hotels because of my job. I love this one! I stayed here a while ago on Valentines with my boyfriend. We ate at the Flame restaurant, they had a special deal on which was £35pp for a 3 course meal. Amazing value if you consider we both had fillet steak for mains! The food was... More

After trawling through a lot of wedding and reception venues, we finally confirmed the Best western Blunsdon House Hotel. We got married Sunday 5th July 2015. After several meetings with the wedding coordinator Grace, we had planned our perfect day. Grace had taken every request and made sure it happened. Nothing was too much trouble. I am still stunned as... More

We stayed as part of a family group. On arrival the hotel looks great and the entrance via Flame restaurant looks quite modern. The check in staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the play area by the patio is a great idea, we were able to have a coffee whilst supervising our children. The rooms were... More

We stayed one night. Room was like a sauna and plug in air con unit made little difference. Manager says that many rooms don't have any air con. We barely slept. By 3am my 3 year old said "I want to get out of here!" We all felt the same. Avoid in the summer.

Dear NatalieSJJ, We are sorry that you did not enjoy your time with us at the hotel and felt the need to specifically create account here at Tripadvisor to express you dissatisfaction. We find you account as detailed quite strange to say the least. Contrary to your alleged conversation with our manager just under 70% of our bedrooms have air-conditioning.... More
