Can only review room 8 but makes you wonder about the rest. It was dreadful! Thankfully the sheets and towels were clean, the beer was good and the food okay BUT the room was dreadful. Not only where there gaps between the door and the door frame (outside door) but the gaps in the window where equally bad and the... More

Beer, food and staff all very pleasant. Butcombe's Ale (Rare Breed) in perfect condition and a bit too more-ish. The Silverside and Stilton pie and Cajun Chicken were extremely tasty and not for the feeble appetited. All in all an experience I can't wait to repeat, deciding which pie to eat will be the problem.

Decided to try another hotel in Shepton for this most recent visit. Looking at the rooms we thought a cabin in the courtyard would make for a lovely, luxury stay; it would have had it been finished and, once the work is completed, inside and out, it will be well worth the £95 for the room. Currently it seemed a... More

If you like oldie world, log fires, timber beams and old world charm then this place is for you. Its not as cheap as some of the other nearby pubs but the charm more than makes up for... More

Room was nice and bed comfortable but not enough hot water to fill one bath ( and this was a room for four!)which is really annoying! And a half done shower waiting... More

I great fire place and over mantel dominates the main bar. The food choice was varied and quite tasty. There was a good choice of ales in theory. Only one was available each of the two nights, one ran out one night, the other the second. They were both nice though so all good. The building is interesting a quirky,... More

If you like Ikea or conglomerate hotels don't go there but if you enjoy old fashioned hospitatlity with a lot of local character this is the place for you. Introduced to The Dusthole by friends we will definately return and recommend. The rooms are full of character and a few niggles can be put down to the age of the... More

I've stayed here three times, twice on business and (having been so impressed with the new family suite) once with my family in the new family suite. I've enjoyed every minute of every stay, the food is fantastic which includes the breakfasts with the best sausages! The rooms are all unique and some a bit quirky which all adds to... More
