Having arrived at night, it was great to be able to park at the hotel door. Swift and friendly check in from where I was shown my room. There is a residents lounge with a bar, which also served hot drinks throughout the day. Well-equipped and spacious room with sofa area. No sign of staff when I arrived at breakfast,... More

My wife and I visited The Mount Hotel for an afternoon tea courtesy of a gift from a daughter. This Hotel is set in the countryside not too far from Taunton, set amidst green fields and it is an imposing building. We were offered the choice of taking our tea on the Terrace or in the lounge. In view of... More

Attended a Wedding reception there recently, and was quite shocked, the staff were surly at best, the bar area was not very clean, and the chicken skewer canapés that I had were raw in the middle, the wedding breakfast was a barbeque style affair again not impressive and sparse, I was expecting a lot more from this Hotel in all...

We stayed at the Mount Somerset Hotel as a last minute decision en route to Cornwall recently. It is around 5 minutes away from the M5 but a complete world away at the same time which is surprising given proximity to the motorway. You are completely off the beaten track in a special place of tranquility. It's very pretty. We... More

I have to stay in a lot of hotels on business and this is definitely one of the very best. Not only is this hotel incredible value for money, but the service, food and decor are all exceptional. I just wish I had found it earlier as I've been making several trips to Somerset and nothing else locally comes close.

We visited here for a Spa Day, which was amazing! We entered the building and were greeted by the lovely receptionist. She showed us to the lounge where we filled out a short form and then she took us on a tour of the facilities. There is a changing room with toilet and shower, plus a locker room with robes,...

We were welcomed and asked to take a seat whilst we were served. We chose to sit by the fireplace which was away from the loud group on the other side of the room.

It was good to be back at the Mount Somerset as we hadn't been there for a number of years. Our daughter's wedding reception was held there a while back and we used to eat there for dinner quite often. The location never disappoints and the food didn't either.
