We booked Sunday lunch at Bowlish House for a family get together. The house is very nice and has lovely rooms in which to have a pre-lunch or pre-dinner drink. However the car parking was a nightmare! The menus were given to us in the lounge (The Georgian Room) and we ordered our main course. The menu had a choice... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights in January 2016, and ate here as well. The room was very comfortable, although there was a howling draft through the window casement. We took care of this with some rolled-up newspaper, and the heavy curtains helped. Would not be a problem in summer, of course and it didn't... More

Stayed here very recently for a wedding blessing and had a wonderful time. Very beautiful Georgian house with tastefully decorated, very comfortable rooms. Food was amazing and couldn't fault at all. Would not hesitate to recommend and would love to return.

Bowlish House is a gem! A beautiful Georgian property being lovingly restored. The breakfast was very good. All top quality ingredients. Wifi is complimentary but very slow. We loved the hotel but I'm afraid we couldn't say the same for Shepton mallet. The town centre was very dilapidated and run down, lots of closed down shops/pubs. My advice would be... More

Renovated by the very welcoming hotel owner to an extremely high standard, we can thoroughly recommend this Georgian house. Our room was immaculate with attention to detail - crisp, white bed linen, fluffy, white towels in the bathroom and a delicious full English breakfast prepared to our liking each morning. We will certainly return next time we visit Somerset. Sincere... More

Had 1 night here with my Husband. Very warm welcome from the hosts. Our room was large, comfortable and the shower was superb. Loved the old decor, being a bit of a porcelain collector myself, it was right up my alley. Delightful bfast cooked to order in the conservatory. I highly recommend the B&B despite the creaks!

A good hotel with a friendly atmosphere and a great breakfast. Room good with high ceilings and nice ensuite and very comfy bed. Only thing stopping 5 stars was restless guests above with creaky floorboards. Hotel was convenient for both Wells and Bath

I stayed here with my two younger daughters aged 11 &14 years old. The B&B is decorated fittingly throughout the property. Our room was of a good size, plenty of cupboard space, extra blankets, tea making facilities, complimentary waters and biscuits. It even had a well stocked mini bar. The beds were very comfortable and we got a good nights... More

Visited here with a group of friends for Sunday lunch. 8 of us in total. Excellent experience from beginning to end. The place was very busy with another large group celebrating a significant family birthday and there were quite a few other diners. We had drinks on arrival and a chance to view menus. Two courses for £14.95 and £17.95... More
