“Deserved rating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed here as a family last weekend. At first blush as you drive in, the hotel resembled a new classroom block. Quite modern and angled, you then drive around the corner and see the original building which is very attractive. Loads of parking. The old blends with the new well. The reception areas are spacious enough and there is a comfy drawing room which leads to a terrace over looking well maintained gardens. We were in the modern block where there's a spa. Rooms were a very good size with a complimentary mini bar (a few treats, some water and a couple of beers but what a nice touch). Wonder why with a room that size they used queen sized instead of king sized. Not possibly the most comfy mattress but overall a decent room. Service and wine prices/ selection were good and the food was enjoyable. Not "high cuisine" but comfort food done well and a decent breakfast included in a very reasonable room rate.

The owner clearly cares about the hotel and restaurant and it shows. The village is small but charming with a couple of pubs and we would recommend a stay here for anyone venturing near Yeovil.

In several modern low- rise buildings close to Yeovil, Somerset and the A303. Lovely grounds with plenty of parking close to the reception.
We booked many rooms for a wedding week-end and found them to be spacious, by European standards, and very comfortable. The bathrooms are very modern, a bit 'design over function' for my taste but kept extremely clean and gleaming. I did not use the gym or the jacuzzi but was told they were good. Disappointingly, there are no room-safes.
Excellent food and very good service. Sensible prices in the bar; situated in the open plan ground floor reception and breakfast/dining room areas. The reception desk is not permanently manned but, attended by the multi-tasking management with a friendly greeting and a smile as soon as your presence is noted. Not clear on first arrival but, once used to it I found this friendly ' country house' style very pleasant.
I found the hotel delivers all that is asks with `no fuss', quiet efficiency. I would use the hotel again and so would many of our guests from the U.K. and Denmark.
None of us could have wanted more.

So, many thanks to the management and staff of the Lanes.

Room Tip: Rear facing rooms, overlooking the gardens an advantage.

The room or rather two bedroomed appartment I was allocated on arrival is brilliant. Three tvs living area and small kitchen.

I have stayed in Yeovil a number of times but this place is the best. The service throughout was very good and the food is excellent for a hotel. Well worth a visit.

We booked last minute and were we ever glad we did. Our room was excellent with many lovely extra touches that other similar superior hotels would do well to adopt. We arrived with a smile on our faces and left the same way. Excellent staff, excellent service and great food both in the evening and for breakfast the next day. We'll definitely be going back!

I met up with a group of best friends to have Sunday lunch earlier in the year - the staff were really helpful and friendly, food was very good and good value. Would highly recommend it - the only downside was that the dining room felt a bit lacking in atmosphere but we could have just been there on a quiet day and as we just wanted a special birthday lunch it was perfect for us

We stayed with our two kids in an apt for a local family gathering. Excellent facilities very clean and well stocked apt. Really happy with our room and the breakfasts were excellent even for our very fussy 11yr old.
Extremely friendly and courteous staff too.
Both therapists at the spa on site were excellent and well
priced.
Lovely hotel in a great setting would recommend to anyone. We look forward to staying again!

Probably the best small hotel we have stayed in for many a year.The staff were extremely friendly,helpful and courtious.Our room was exaclty what we expected from web site which is a rareity these days.The small complimentary mini bar was a nice touch,bed was very comfortable and a lovely big bath to chill out in.
We had dinner both nights in hotel and food was absolutely delightful.Gardens had lovely setting for a few drinks outside and had a few spectators(Eric and Ernie, Ant and Dec) the resident goats!!!!
Fantastic place to stay if visiting the area.
