A true delight. Our room was lovely, and the bathroom was a good size, complete with double walk in shower and stand alone roll top bath. Pre-dinner drinks were unhurried in a very relaxing spacious bar area, and dinner was an absolute treat, with a bonus of live music from a mature duo playing mellow tunes! Service throughout was attentive.... More

I took my sister to Mount Somerset for an overnight stay on Sunday and it was everything I was hoping for. We had a deluxe twin room which was spacious and quiet with very comfy beds and a great bathroom with freestanding bath and walk-in shower. Extras like homemade cookies in a jar and a decent coffee machine added to... More

We’ve just returned from a two night break at this little gem – our room was delightful – exceptionally comfortable bed and a bathroom that was just fab – roll top bath & his & hers showers.

This could be a lovely country house hotel but it is looking very shabby and tired and needs some TLC. The bedrooms and especially bathrooms are nice and seem to have been updated but the rest of the hotel needs an upgrade. Majority of staff were very helpful.

Pleasant drive to hotel with easy parking but rather taken aback at the cracked steps leading to the entrance, so relieved to reach a pleasant reception area and receptionist. We were hot and bothered by a long drive so chose to turn right into the bar/lounge area as soon as we were checked in. An attractive space of 2 large... More
