This is a good basic hotel no frills so don't get your hopes up.Everything works a little bit tired but staff are friendly.Hotel is a bit of a "rabbit warren". Breakfast was adequate.Parking available in street out the front and a good bar downstairs.Sometimes it's good to rate your b&B's with something out of left field as staying at same... More

My train eventually got to Yeovil at 11:45 and I was told that I could not check-in as... More

When we tried to book in the star had to serve the customers in the bar before they saw to us and then they hadn't got a key tour room! They did eventually let us in with the master key to leave our stuff and freshen up. The room itself was clean, the bathroom was a nice size, the shower... More
