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!
