The hotel is at a good location, and is easy to notice. It has a large car park with lots of parking spaces. The town centre is within walking distance, albeit not that near (allow yourself at least 20 minutes to be safe!) The room was clean, with a rather spacious shower that had a good pressure. The staff were... More

Booked this hotel for just one night in June. The room was adequate for our needs though a little cramped. The breakfast was good and the evening meal in the inn was good pub grub. I would use it again as a stop over.

A really nice little hotel that isn't expensive is getting rare. The Highwayman Inn offers a good service which translates into excellent value for money. Given there is a bar restaurant open every day as well, it is an extremely useful place to stay as you don't have to go out at night after a busy day. The bar is... More

comfortable hotel. Perfect for business travellers. Bed was very relaxing and the shower hot and fast. Usual problem with electric sockets not near bed, but a small point. I had no wi-fi in my room, but was told it was a fault with the router.. The food was good pub grub. Cheap enough but also delicious and plentiful . .... More

We booked this inn via booking.com as we had no idea what accommodation was in the area. The photo of the outside was not flattering but those of the inside looked quite nice. The price of £49 per double room including breakfast seemed more than reasonable. We were extremely well looked after, with pleasant staff and a lovely modern ground... More

Stayed here for a night whilst away for work, Room was a good size and the bed was really comfy, if anything the windows could be double glazed due to road traffic but the traffic is much less at night. Bar was really nice with a good choice of beers and also sky sports, Breakfast in the morning was good.... More

My wife and I booked into The Highwayman for an overnight stay, as we were working in the area the following day. The reception promptly handled our arrival and we were shown to a very suitable room which was wonderfully warm. We inquired regarding an evening meal, and were told we could go into the bar/dining area at any time... More

Stayed here for 1 night whilst passing through somerset. Was easy to find with a big car park. Check in was at the bar and was easy and fast and the landlady was very courteous informing us of the meal times. She showed us to our twin room warning us to mind our heads on the way up as there...

Our mid-week arrival was at the end of travellers afternoon wake at this pleasant establishment situated on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet. After this raucous introduction, an enjoyable time was spent in the spacious bar with a nice evening meal. Not for very tall people, as the corridor from the bar to your comfortable room is punctuated by several low... More
