“Pleasant BB close to town centre”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

First time visit to Taunton a largish fairly nondescript town with a mish mash of styles from medieval to brutal 60,s architecture whose centre still seems to be dominated by whizzing traffic!
Anyway,after that disappointment onto Brookfield House which proved to be a quiet haven close to the action! We were welcomed by friendly chap at reception and given a key to let us come and go as we pleased and then shown to our very nice spacious room on the first floor which overlooked the pleasant rear garden area. Everything was as it should be ie spotlessly clean,comfortable bed, ensuite with all the fluffy towels etc. We did not have dinner at Brookfield House-more on that in another review! but we did have breakfast and this is where in my opinion they lose the otherwise fully justified 5 star rating. I found the "full English" to be slightly fomulaic. It,s hard to be specific about this but although perfectly edible it had the look of something that was about to photographed and stuck behind the counter at a fast food restaurant!

Room Tip: room at back peaceful but front of hotel is just off very busy road

Spotlessly clean and nicely decorated, nce fluffy towels and quality bedding. Comfortable bed and good breakfast, what more do you want for B&B?
Only stayed one night for a friends wedding but well pleased.

Room Tip: Maybe one at the back away from road if you want to be picky.

Stayed here for 8 nights in total whilst on business. This was recommended to me by colleagues, on arrival it was apparent a great deal of care had been taken in the preparation of the guest house. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the service very good. It is a short walk to the High Street so not a bad location.
I did not eat in the evening here but the breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared. The bathrooms are a little small but very clean and functional.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone.

If you want lovely décor & spotlessly clean accommodation then you will not beat this. The attention to detail is excellent. We didn't get the room we had specifically booked on the phone as they had let it to someone else which was annoying but the room we had was very nice. We personally did not enjoy the food. We both love full English but cooked traditionally. Both days I asked for crispy bacon & got just about cooked, eggs also not cooked on the top, mushrooms were terrible as if boiled & fried bread not fresh, so hard & crispy nearly lost it across the room when trying to cut it. We also had the evening meal the first night as we were late arriving. The home-made pie was really nice but let down by frozen vegetables & roast potatoes. For the price we expected at least fresh & properly roasted. Dessert, however, was lovely. Overall thought it overpriced, mainly due to the food.

We only stayed one night at Brookfield House as we were on our way to Cornwall, but we wished we could have stayed longer. The house is spotlessly clean and well decorated, and the breakfast is everything you would expect and more. It is just a short walk into the lovely town of Taunton. This is a very friendly and welcoming place and we have no hesitation in recommending it.

Room Tip: We had a large room on the front of the house but did not hear any noise from the busy main road.

Warm welcome, extremely clean room, excellent breakfast. The bathroom was small but well designed and the road noise not intrusive. Not too far from the town centre: definitely within walking distance.

Having read the reviews on 'tripadvisor', my wife and I stayed for a one night escape at Brookfield House and it didn't disappoint. We received a warm welcome from the owner, and were shown to our spotlessly clean and comfortable room. Breakfast in the morning was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending a stay here to others.

Room Tip: We had room 7 which was at the rear of the house overlooking the gardens. No problem connecting to t...
