Room & Suite (36)
Dining (18)


Independently owned character hotel ideal for both business and leisure travellers. Within walking distance of the centre of Somerset's County town Taunton, this 45 bedroom hotel has been transformed to meet the demands of the modern day traveller. Late 2015 the complete refurbishment of the bar & restaurant has created a relaxed drinking and dining venue. Ideal for business or pleasure. Emphasis has been placed on developing a simple yet stylish and comfortable sleeping experience. All rooms have linen duvets, ample work space, refrigerators with complimentary bottled water and fresh milk, flat screen televisions and sparkling en-suite facilities. Free Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel. A flexible combination of meeting and eating rooms and excellent road and rail connections make the Corner House a convenient location for day and residential meetings. The hotel has on site car parking and is in an ideal location for visiting many of the nearby Somerset attractions or as a stopover en-route to or from the Cornish peninsula.

Thank you so much for your positive review. I am pleased that you will be back. I am extremely disappointed by lumpy porridge and Soya milk. Not good enough on our part and I will be discussing this with those involved. It is constructive feedback such as this that keeps us on our toes. Thank You Carlos

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I apologise for the lack of milk in the fridge. We used to get our individual milk cartons for the bedrooms from Muller Wiseman but a few weeks ago they informed us that they were ceasing the deliver of these. Sadly they let us down on the last few scheduled deliveries we were supposed to have and the housekeeping staff were meant to have been putting jugs in as a stop gap. This obviously did not happen in your case. We have now purchased bottles for the bedrooms. I do wish you had flagged this to reception as they would have (hopefully Happily) got you some. I am a bit confused by 'only allowed 1 choice from the menu'. We take your order and you can order whatever you wish. Yes we then take the menu away as is not unusual in restaurants as it serves to let other staff know the order has been taken and keeps the table clear. A large portion of our breakfast is buffet style and help yourself. I am of course disappointed to read that some of our staff cant manage to raise a smile as usually the are a happy bunch. I do hope that you will return again. Carlos

Stayed for one night midweek. Very comfortable bed and decent bathroom. Nice and quiet. Needed a swift getaway in the morning. Breakfast was served from 0700 and was excellent - tasty and swift service. Reasonably central location for the town and cricket ground.

Is this hotel pet friendly?
I copied this from their website We are a pet friendly hotel. We love welcoming dogs however we have limited rooms that can accommodate dogs. To avoid disappointment please contact the hotel direct to check the availability of these rooms before you book your stay. (There is a £10 charge per dog, per night)

"My only tip is to ask for room 48 if you have a four legged friend."
"Some rooms are very small so check the size of your allocated room."
"Avoid the compact rooms unless you are on your own"
"if you don't want traffic noise ask for a back room."
"stay somewhere else"
$66 - $135 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
