4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed and could not fault the room or the service. We would certainly stay there again. We entertained guests in the Flame resturant and would describe it as two star quality food at four star prices - basically pub type food chips in little buckets, some food well overcooked. Meal for 6 cost me well over £200.00 with some... More

Stayed for one night for a business meeting and was delighted with my large room in the Pavilion with super comfy bed and bathroom with bathtub and separate shower. I think they had thought of everything you could need in this room with a safe and fridge, iron and ironing board, room to sit - big tv .. I didn't... More

I just stayed here for a couple of days again and the staff were very friendly and very helpful. The hotel is nice, maybe a little old fashioned but nice nonetheless. The breakfast is good and the bar varied and reasonably priced. My only gripe was the heat. It was so hot both nights and unfortunately there was no way... More

Having just spent our 4th visit to Blunsdon House, we were disappointed this time. It remains a quality hotel with lovely rooms and generally good facilities. However, this trip showed up some unexpected weaknesses; the ladies toilets on the ground floor left a lot to be desired with general maintenance not being done. 3 or 4 of the cubicles did... More

Not the first time in Blundson House which I love. Rooms are really British with flower decor, dark wooden etc but very spacious at all, clean and big windows. People are friendly, the Park outside is gorgeous, just the breakfast could be better, fresher and especially the coffee (which doesn't deserve the name!) stronger. You really can look through. But... More

As I often observe, one must grade any hotel by reference to its position in the market. Best Western consciously positions itself as a mid-market brand. But because Best Western hotels are all independent there can be stark differences in how good they are, so the relatively recent introduction of the Plus and Premier sub-brands seems sensible. For a Best... More

This is an amazing hotel with lovely staff. Have stayed in the hotel on a number of occasions now and nothing ever disappoints. Food and the leisure facilities are both excellent. Rooms are immaculate and well furnished. Pavilion rooms have a lovely balcony / patio.

To say this is a tale of two extremes is no exaggeration. We arrived on a Friday afternoon, after a horrendous journey, and the reception staff were wonderfully friendly and sympathetic. Check-in was swift and painless as always. We were booked in to the same rooms in the Pavilion that we stayed in on our last visit, and they are... More

The staff on reception were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Our room in the main building was very well appointed and very clean, but the decor was very dated for our personal tastes ("old lady" carpet and dark wood furniture). The bare breeze-block walls in the corridors to the rooms seem a bizarre decorative oversight, totally out of keeping with the... More
