“Extremely lovely b&b”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

A great bed and breakfast. Lovely room and great hospitality. Clean and comfortable. Had a fridge in my room which had yummy local produce to munch on and drink which was a really nice touch. I would recommend this one to all.

Very nice b and b. Good wi fi and a desk which made working easy. Good location for the centre and very close to the station, the breakfast was excellent. Of note was the mini bar in the room. Everything was local and the prices were very reasonable, a pleasant change from most hotels.

Dear Dm_42. All the way from Iceland! I am so glad you found your stay at Somerville House so pleasant, in terms of the location near the railway station and convenience for the city centre. We are pleased that you also enjoyed the accommodation, including the items we had chosen for the mini-bar, reflecting the best from our region. We hope to see you again in the future if your business brings you to Hereford. Best wishes Rosie and Bill

A fabulous luxury b&b. Rooms are luxurious finished and well appointed with everythine you can think of. I was staying in Room 5 with great views over Hereford and a fabulous super king size bed. Even the mini bar was well thought out with local produce, beer, wine, cider, etc., with extremely good pricing. The breakfast was delicious with again local produce and amazing variety. I can certainly recommend this b&b, nothing is too much trouble for the hosts and it is spotlessly clean!! If you visit Hereford ensure you stay here!! Fantastic! Amber x

We stayed here from the 19th to the 22nd December having travelled from Jersey. We arrived late but were very warmly welcomed by the owners. Very good room with all facilities and a personal touch each time. There was nothing they found too much to do. They recommended a takeaway and even laid out a table for us to enjoy our takeaway meal. That was something I have never seen anywhere else and I have travelled a lot around the world.
Breakfast was excellent served with a personal touch and customised to your needs. None of that ' here's your plate, there you go' stuff. And the home made marmalades and local produce were excellent.
I would strongly recommend this place and have booked another stay in March already.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

We went as a group to Somerville House so had the chance to view each other's rooms. All were of an excellent standard - a lot of time, care and trouble had been taken to make everything exceptionally comfortable. The breakfasts suited individual tastes and were delicious. The friendly and helpful owners even went out in the morning to get a newspaper which, although ordered, hadn't been delivered. I'd definitely go there again - and again.

I have recently stayed at the Somerville House B&B for a period of just under a month whilst doing some work in Hereford; and during that time, Rosie and Bill went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

The breakfasts were fantastic, with a great choice of both hot and cold food being offered and no limit on quantity! The breakfast orders were always taken promptly and the food and coffee would arrive in great time. Rosie and Bill also allowed access to the dining room, microwave and cutlery at all times in case you fancied a takeaway or microwave meal in the evenings.

My room was great, with an incredibly comfortable bed and a great sized en suite bathroom which had some lovely shower gels, shampoos and soaps. It was always cleaned immaculately and re stocked with a fantastic range of complimentary teas, coffees, fresh milk and biscuits. The mini bar was also stocked with some great snacks and drinks which were not extortionately priced like in hotels. The free Wi-Fi is also of a fantastic standard and a very strong signal can be found in the entire building.

The B&B is really well located, only being a short walk into Hereford or a drive into the surrounding countryside. There are many fantastic restaurants and bars in the local area within walking distance which offer a great range of food for very reasonable prices.

I cannot recommend the Somerville House B&B enough to anyone who was considering a long or short term stay in or near to Hereford; thanks again to Rose, Bill and all the staff of the B&B for such an enjoyable and stress free stay, it really was a home from home - I hope to see you all again soon!

We had a one night stay here during a short tour around some old haunts and this was without doubt the best accommodation bar none. Comfortable room and bed, superb breakfast, friendly owners and staff, convenient for the city centre. If only all such establishments were this good.
