I stayed here as I was exhibiting at an event nearby. Great place. Clean throughout with friendly staff. The breakfast was superb, high quality ingredients and very tasty. I only have one negative point is the smell around the toilets in the bar. I wonder if they were flooded at some point as it is a very damp musty smell.... More

Yesterday I was cycling from Bristol to my home in Dorset. At about 115km it's not a short ride and I had planned drink/food stops along the way. As I passed the Highwayman Inn I stopped to get some more water and a small lunch. Every place I have ever stopped for water will happily fill up a bottle of... More

Stayed over a week end recently. On arrival we were greeted at the bar reception and booked in (booked on phone a week earlier), paid and were shown to our room. Spacious and very clean. Shower was excellent but bed a bit soft but that is my opinion as I prefer a mid/hard mattress. Stayed for dinner the first night... More

Stayed here with my wife for a weekend break. Very friendly staff, Good food, clean and tidy at a reasonable price. The corridor leading to our room (9) was a challenge for a 6 foot + person as very low, but all part of the character of the place. Superbly comfy bed, would most definitely stay here again when visiting... More

The staff at the highway man are really friendly and a great laugh they make you feel welcome and comfortable. Lovely big place with lots of space and fun quiz machines. Have been one time for just drinks and another time for a meal. Food was delicious and there was so much to choose from on the menu and the... More

Stayed overnight after going to a wedding nearby. Room was fine...as was checking in. Breakfast excellent and set us up for the day (an extra sausage would go a long way). Room was warm, comfortable, and clean.

We've stayed there so often it's now like a home from home. We have got to know the owners well and only have to ring up at the last minute and they will do they're best to fit us in. The prices do vary drastically though, depending what event is going on in the area but always a very friendly... More

Hotel is very basic, however it resembles all those UK-based movies. Fortunately no one got killed :-) Some of the rooms are without internee access and some are incredibly small (I was in room 10 which actually was pretty OK). The breakfast is normal, nothing to be fancy of, however try vege sausages instead of meat. They are pretty good.... More

After the hotel next door had cocked up our booking, they managed to get us into this hotel The Highwayman. As we were in Shepton Mallet for a wedding, we were very apprehensive as we had no time to look for somewhere else if we didnt like it...but to say we were happy with The Highwayman is an understatement.

Fairly basic hotel, rooms at the front are quite noisy as close to a busy road. Breakfast was okay but we were not given any choice - the waitress just said we could have cereal or a fry up! The décor was very dated but seemed to be quite clean.
