My son had recommended the Dolphin when we went to the races. The rooms were very clean and everything you could want. Although the bar was very busy with race goers the service was still very good. Breakfast was very good hot and plentiful.

I stayed for three nights and have nothing bad to say at all. The room was comfy and I loved the shower. The continental breakfast had a wide variety and there was also the option of hearty cooked breakfast for a small charge. It is right in the heart of Wincanton (opposite the Discworld Emporium which was the reason for...

Arrived there on Saturday night with two small children, only to find drunk people swearing underneath our window, shouting and just absolutely horrible. None of us could go to sleep until after midnight, when we were just too tired. The carpet was so filthy, I had to make sure none of us walked on there barefoot. The breakfast, the few...

Stayed for 3 nights, Thurs, Fri and Sat. The car park entrance is a bit narrow, through the entrance arch but there is ample space. Our room was well equipped with lots of drawer space, very comfortable beds, a good size ensuite and amazing towels. We've stayed in lots of upmarket hotels and not had towels this good. ALL the...

We stayed for one night with friends at this hotel. Our advice would be to avoid rooms 9 and 10 as these two rooms are above the generator room and gents toilets. The door arm close on the gents loo was broken and the door slammed shut each time it was opened, well into the night. The rooms themselves were...

Stayed here for 2 nights - had booked a family room but we got 2 connecting rooms - which was a bonus. First impression was that everything looked nice - nice furniture and clean white bed linen. On closer inspection however, this place is tired and needs a good overhaul - shower was rubbish - either freezing or boiling hot...
