Stayed this weekend, great room with loads of space and everything you need. Breakfast the next morning was ample and really nice. Pub is lively but not disturbing, town is a short distance with shops and a few attractions. The local cider is lovely too :)

This hotel has friendly staff. We booked a room and checked in. The room was on the top floor. There were low angled ceilings all along the corridor and in the bedroom. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean but there was an odd smell. The mattress on the bed was quite uncomfortable. I just didn't feel comfortable staying in... More

Booked in advance, the person could not find our name, leaving us little concerned as to what might happen, but low and behold we did have a room. in the extensive extension to the original building. A meal was booked, so we went to the bar and enquired where... More

Friendly staff, warm comfy room, a little cramped moving around the bed, luckily only 1 night so not too much of a problem . Bed was very comfortable. A few steep stairs to get to room, so again, luckily didn't have too much to carry. The wifi was a little slow, and I couldn't't connect at all on Sunday. A... More

My wife and I needed a suitable place to base ourselves for a 3 day tour of National Trust and English Heritage sites in Somerset/Wiltshire/Dorset. We found the Highwayman Inn on Trivago which for a high season weekend was not badly priced at £80 per night including a decent full english breakfast. The inn is well located on the A37... More
