This is the second time that we have stayed at the Shrubbery Hotel and we found it even more comfortable than our previous visit which was about four years ago.
We had notified the hotel of our late arrival (around 10.30pm) when we booked and we were warned in the booking of the likelihood of functions on Friday and Saturday nights. This was a Saturday night and a wedding was in full swing. We were shown to our room and told that we could be moved if we found the noise to be too much. A tray of coffee was provided. The bed was comfortable and we were tired so we were asleep before the wedding party finished.
We had booked 'room only' and in the morning chose the continental breakfast option as we had a lunch engagement booked. The breakfast was good and there was plenty of it.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we are in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our Restaurant has been completely refurbished and renovation work is well under way in our Sun Lounge and reception areas. In the coming weeks improvements will be made to the Ballroom before work gets underway in the bedrooms. While there are many decorative changes planned, those of you who have visited recently will know that the original team are still very much a part of the hotel. We hope that you will come and experience these improvements soon. Ilminster an attractive market town. The Shrubbery Hotel stands on a site previously occupied by a private house named, 'Crosses' which dated back to the 17th century. Apparently, cloth dyeing took place on the premises. In the 1850s the property was purchased by the local Shepherd family, who built an imposing Victorian house around the original building. The family, allegedly, made their fortune from selling hessian and jute to both sides in the American Civil War and their wealth enabled them to become major landowners and benefactors to the town. The premises were converted into an hotel in 1932. ... more less
