We have seen this hotel decline over the past two years. During our latest visit the toilets were so filthy that my wife refused to use the ladies.The waiters and chef told us that nearest soup they had to vegetable was chicken! We requested a bottle of white wine only to be told that the only one they had was at room temperature! - was that ok?
The manager we spoke to was extremely rude. He accepted that this was the case and told me that he did not have any training to deal with customers as his job was to promote the hotel in order to increase custom! You could not make it up!
Take my advice, find another hotel.

I went to the hotel for lunch with a group of colleagues. We had pre-ordered but still had to wait for the food and when it came it was not all at once. The waiter did not know what he was doing and people had to go on ahead and eat their meals as they would have got cold whilst others had to wait. My meal came right at the end after most people had finished and it was only a jacket potato! Most meals were cheap but at a cost of quality and amount. A waitress did apologise but no excuse for service. Will not be going again in a hurry.

Room Tip: Cannot comment on rooms as went only for a meal.

I have been staying in The Manor for some time for business when i have to be in this part of Somerset. The rooms are comfortable and clean, beds are super comfortable, and the food is good. All in all, a nice and welcoming place to stay - the staff can't do enough for you. The downside is the greedy parent Company, Old English Inns, who have introduced a pricing structure whereby as the rooms sell for a night, the price of the remaining rooms goes up, to the point where the price of my room can vary between £60 and nearly £130, not including breakfast. This is a total rip off, so be warned! Such a shame, because every other aspect of The Manor is so nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building, avoid the annexe and the top floor.

Staff were very welcoming and helpful. We stayed overnight for business and whilst by no means the most lush hotel we have stayed in, it was great value for the money. Very close proximity to the town centre. Bar and beer garden were very nice. Restaurant was standard fare but nice atmosphere. The room was clean - the bed a bit lumpy but easily put up with given the great value and overall experience.

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights over the August bank holiday. A great location at the end of the town centre and decent rates made it stand out.

There is a pay and display car park on-site, free for people staying. When we arrived there weren't many spaces free and I can imagine it would fill up on busy weekends with people visiting the pub. Checking-in was fine and we were given the key to our room in the 'Old Stables', a separate building at the rear of the car park.

The room was adequate, clean with a very comfortable bed. We were in room 48 on the ground floor. View was over a small grassed area at the side of the car park. The window was of a sliding design, and therefore not suitable to leave open when out of the room or during the night, as it would slide open fully. Within the wardrobe there was an iron and board, with plenty of coat hangers. A major frustration of mine occurred again - no plug sockets next to the bed!

The bathroom was also fine, with a powerful shower above the bath and plenty of towels. Only a single small bottle of shower gel was provided though, and no shampoo.

Our major issue with the bedroom was with 'creaking' during the night. This was either someone upstairs constantly walking around, or creaking caused by the wind outside. Either way it was enough to cause a disturbed night's sleep.

The bar within the main building was great for relaxing during an afternoon and prices were very reasonable. We dined in the main restaurant on the first night. No complaints over the food, but there was only one waitress for the whole restaurant, which meant she was clearly running around overwhelmed and extra service was slow, such as asking for extra drinks which took a good ten minutes to arrive.

We had breakfast on both mornings. This is a buffet but also cooked options to order. Tea and coffee was brought in a timely manner, but toast took a good ten minutes. We were surprised that for two people we were brought just one slice, cut into two triangles. Of course this meant we had to ask for more, taking another ten minutes to arrive. The buffet was also lacking at times - the first morning there were no glasses, plates and only one type of pastry left. Re-stocking of this area didn't appear to take place often.

Overall this was an adequate place to stay, but there is a little lack of attention to detail. Nice clean buildings and rooms, but I probably would look around if I was to visit the area again.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor rooms in the Old Stables if you want to leave a window open!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Refurbished three years ago The Manor is located in the Somerset town of Yeovil with easy access via the A303. An Ideal base if visiting Yeovilton, Sherborne. Built in 1735 by local glover and merchant banker John Daniel, the house was known as Hendford House. After he passed away the house was rented out until 1927 when it became The Manor Hotel. A manor it may not be, but it is certainly elegant enough to be one. Its classical facade and porch are of warm, mellow stone, and to its long single wing, also of stone. It has a cheerful modern bar with scrubbed floorboards and pale beechwood furniture and fittings. Today the hotel is a firm favourite with locals and travellers alike. You will be assured of a very warm welcome and great hospitality. Yeovil is the ideal spot from which to explore Hardy's Wessex. Nearby attractions include Glastonbury Abbey. ... more   less
