Awful visit, uncomfortable bed, no breakfast as promised got told would have to pay extra, cost not worth the room. Our family room insisted of 3 single beds, wires everywhere, unsafe window, mould all over bathroom and very uncomfortable beds.

This hotel has live music on at weekends and can be a little on the loud side depending on the group. It was great as we enjoy a good band, and being in the heart of Yeovil town it's what you'd expect. The bar is very cosy although a bit dark on a sunny day with a good selection of... More

The only reason you should stay here is to show you that the last place you gave a bad review actually wasn't that bad. The room is like a furnace and the fixtures and fittings are falling apart. The bedding hasn't been ironed. The walls have holes. The shared shower and toilet is broken. I could go on and on... More

We pulled in to a tiny car park, manager swinging her keys like a prison officer, nice lady behind the bar checked myself and my daughter in, showed us the room and straight away my child burst in to tears! Was dreadful, sheets looked as old and discoloured. Hair in the sink, pillows as flat as card board. Was just... More

Really struggle for parking. Above a relatively nice pub. Little bit ropey but it was really cheap so you get what you pay for really. Comfortable enough. My one quibble would be that it stated that breakfast was included. What it meant was that toast and cereal were included and if you wanted a cooked breakfast it was a small... More

Well I was disappointed on arrival-the site said there was parking, but about 4 cars fill it up then you end up blocking each other in. That's a problem if you want to get away early. They also hadn't noted my booking do my single en suite room ended up a twin with shared shower. On my second night due... More
