We visited this hotel last year for one night and were so impressed we went back for 4 nights. Last time we stayed in the Coach House which was excellent but, as gas works were being carried out outside the hotel, they moved us to a premier room - Somerton - in the main house. As always, this is a beautiful old house with a great warm feeling when you arrive and stay. The full english breakfast is excellent and so large it will see you through the day. On this occasion we met Roy Coleman, the owner. Now we know why when breakfasting in the Orangery it is delightfully decorated with a grand piano and photographs of famous jazz players. This is because Roy Coleman is a jazz musician of some repute. If staying in and around Somerton this is the hotel for you. It is centrally located for Glastonbury and Street (excellent shopping). It is also only 5 minutes away from the town centre of Somerton. If you want a curry visit the Spice Gallery opposite the very quiet car park. No ambience and very small, but excellent food and very friendly service. The unicorn pub serves excellent pub grub but we thought it was a little expensive.
