We stayed here earlier this week and had a family room. The room was large and clean. There are a few areas that could be improved, such as the water leak damage to the ceiling that hasn't been covered, the slow running cold water tap in the bathroom and the small amounts of wall paper that has been ripped. But... More

Stayed here for 3 nights midweek, tidy rooms and pub area is nice selling a verity of larger, cider & bitter. It is a popular local pub but does go quiet by 11 - 11.30. Food is good on site and the breakfasts are hearty. There are more places to eat nearby. Overall a very pleasant stay

Clearly the place to be on a Friday night in Wincanton judging but the boisterous noise from the courtyard below our room - that said, it did stop at a reasonable time and it was a warm day so no real complaint there. As for the Hotel, well it is basic but clean and functional. Rooms were small but adequate... More

Like many pubs that offer B&B , sometimes the two don't always sit comfortably together, the needs of one client group conflicting with the other. This is an old coaching inn that the current owners are trying to upgrade. As a listed building there are limitations as to what can be done. It is popular with locals and appears known... More

We stayed for a wedding nearby, and so the night noise on a saturday at 11pm didn't bother us for long (till 11:30ish) but I can imagine if you're using this for sleep, it could be. I'd assume it's not a problem except for Friday and Saturday nights. If you want sleep, ask for a room on the left hand... More

I've stayed in this place many times and find it comfortable clean and friendly. If you are after a no frills place to lay your head, then this will do. The breakfast is good, the evening meals are ok and the selection of beers is great. All in all not a bad place.
