We booked an executive suite for 2 nights and ended up staying for 3. Being in the centre of town it was ideally situated but still felt peaceful. The room was charming, very clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was superb. After our day trips out it felt like coming home. We... More

The hotel looks fabulous from outside and is perfectly located (pity about the massive Mecca Bingo sign that dominates the view out the front!) staff friendly and welcoming, room bright and airy, comfortable bed, all very clean. The cafe/bar kind of lets it down a bit I think - it has a motorway service station feel in the evening and... More

Stayed for one night. Hotel has real character, although some furnishing are out of date. Staff are very welcoming, nice bar area and outside garden. the best thing about this hotel is that it is right in the centre of Taunton, only 10 seconds from main high street, 10 mins to cricket ground. The hotel is also located right next... More

With a splendid town centre location this is a gorgeous-looking building and comfortable place to stay. The owners haven't overly modernised, allowing the hotel to maintain its charm but without compromising on the core facilities. For instance the bathroom looked dated but was actually immaculate, the shower was powerful, there was plenty of hot water and the basic gels/shampoos very... More

We have stayed at this hotel in the middle of Taunton on several occasions and never been disappointed. The staff have always been welcoming and the rooms clean, light and spacious. Breakfast is included and there are plenty of restaurants nearby of all styles where you can eat in the evenings. If you wish a high class hotel in the... More

The outside of this hotel is beautiful and really looks inviting. When we arrived, we asked the receptionist if she had a room and she said no. We then asked her to double check because an Internet site said there was a room left, so she checked and said 'oh yes I do have a room left but it's a... More

I like staying in old/historic hotels, much better than the bland chains. A warm and efficient welcome at reception, a comfortable bed and a hotel with character in a good location to local bars etc. there was a choice of Al a Carte restaurant or brasserie. The food in the brasserie was well presented and very tasty. Breakfast was a... More

We stayed here for a night and the room was stunning. The staff really helpful and friendly too. Breakfast was fresh and plenty of choice. Would definitely stay again. Do check the price of the free water in the room though, well, the cost of the bottle anyway ;-)
