“Amazing hotel - first class staff”
Reviewed October 5, 2010

We stayed in the hotel for a wedding in June and it was perfect. The wedding party had the entire hotel for the weekend which was ideal.

We arrived on the friday night and had an amzing welcome by the barmaid who everyone decided was the hotels best asset. We were late for dinner so she encouraged us to have desert which was delicious. All weekend she was chatty, friendly and persuaded us all to try her cocktails which were amazing!

The wedding was run superbly and everyone was kept happy. It was a swelteringly hot day but drinks were kept topped up and staff were attentive. The meal was amazing.

The only issue would be the room we had would be a bit small for a longer stay or in poor weather. The windows hardly opened and it was unbearably hot. It was well decorated and had all we needed.

The hotel is well kept and all areas are decorated with a lovely style. The garden is gorgeous.

Would definatley recommned especially for a wedding

initial doubts were soon a thing of the past, the most friendly and professional attitude of the staff is testomony to Mark and Mel. This was a great stay for us and was just like being at home nothing to difficult and so relaxed. The food was exceptional and I have been lucky to travel and stay in some of the best hotels in the world but this hotel made me think this is why Britain is Great it had everything the character of a 15th century building coupled with its modern attitude to food and relaxation.

4 of us were working in Yeovil..but arrived really late at the hotel...the staff were absolutley wonderful and couldn't do enough to make us welcome. Food was great..Rooms were lovely and such a glorious setting....it's the type of place to get a crackin nights sleep cos it backs onto green fields....owners are a joy to spend time with...and it's also a find if you want to hire the entire place for a massive party wedding or function...but there's not an air of corporate about it..it's personal..we loved it!

We were very pleased with the hotel facilities and room when we arrived but unfortunately this was completely overshadowed by the poor night's sleep we had. We stayed in a family room, all of which are located on the ground floor of the hotel for ease of convenience for people needing to negotiate the corridors with prams, pushchairs etc ... a great idea. Problem is that the rooms are leading off the reception corridor, so telephone ringing well after midnight, the shrill of which can be heard very clearly inside the room also, the family rooms overlook the courtyard which has a seating area for people using the hotel bar ... it was like having a pub right outside your door! The noise went on past midnight and I was forced at one time to ask people to quiten down after they'd woken my child who normally sleeps through everything. To add insult to injury, when we told the receptionist about the problem the following morning, we received a very negative response saying that she'd not received a complaint about noise previously, I have to say that I find this absolutely astounding as it's like an auditorium in this area of the hotel. The hotel owners really need to review their customer service policy and consider individual experiences when they are reported, instead of dismissing them. It is for the reasons above that I wouldn't recommend this hotel to families with young children.

Booked this hotel without research - merely to have a break in that area. Really pleased with our choice. Bedrooms not the best but perfectly adequate and clean. Any shortcomings in that area was more than made up for in the service, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, plus the benefit of an excellent restaurant. Tried it on the first night and returned to it for the full four nights of the stay.

This is about my fifth or so stay at this hotel this year, the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. They will even make you lunch for the following day if you ask nicely enough. Rooms are nicely done out, the food is excellent, free wifi, and a good size car park.
