We stayed in one of the keeps apartment rooms off site. It's was beautiful and a perfect location for the town centre. We ha a little kitchen area where we cooked breakfast in the morning at whatever time we please so there was no rushing and we could do everything at our own pace. Would highly recommend THe keep.

A lot of money has been spent on 'The Keep' and they have made the best of the buildings they are housed in. However our room missed a few little things that would bring it up to 'Special' status. Wi Fi did not work, I asked the receptionist who told me that it was because 'The walls are very thick'... More

Last weekend, many of our family and friends arrived in Yeovil for our sons wedding. Back in March I had blocked booked rooms in a couple of Hotels including the Keep. What a brilliant decision was that! From the start, Wayne the manager was very accommodating at sorting everything out for us. There was about 30 of us staying, mostly... More

This is the second visit to the keep, this year, wonderful friendly staff team, good customer service, and a lovely location,the rooms are beautiful, and so clean. I like that you can arrive before check-in, and the staff team are very flexible regarding this, which in other hotels this never happens. I have stayed in many hotels, but the keep,... More

I stay at many hotels and am often critical. So it's only right and proper to celebrate quality when it happens. This is a lovely hotel. The rooms very well appointed and modern. The staff were super friendly and ever so helpful and my breakfast including decent coffee was fantastic. Traffic noise was very apparent if you have a street... More

The house keeping rooms were nice, clean and well fitted. My only complaint was the lack of AC. It was quite warm and since we were on the main floor we were unable to open windows. We were given a second fan when we asked. That helped.

Business travelers tired of faceless hotel chains love The Keep.

Small kitchen areas are available with the equipment you need for simple meals and drinks provided, as well as microwaves and a communal dining room - in fact, all the home comforts you need. Secure private parking allows guests to step into town, to enjoy its many restaurants, bars and shops, without having to think about their car. Flexible check in arrangements add to our relaxed, customer focused service. The Keeps crowning glory is the Tower Suite, a luxurious open plan duplex complete with its own kitchen, lounge (with sofa bed) and dining area downstairs, then upstairs to a super king sized bed and over sized bathtub in the bedroom. Fabulous for romantic couples, discerning individuals or ideal for families. This suite is an indulgent pleasure to stay in. Designed from scratch, your hosts Isobel and Richard Brett, have put all their effort, experience and personality into trying to bring all the elements of a perfect stay together for their guests to enjoy at The Keep.
