“Resoundingly Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Stayed 2 nights for a wedding in nearby Bruton.
Rooms were large, of reasonable quality and clean. However, our window didn't open properly and we baked in there for two nights. Our friends room next door - their bathroom heater was stuck on full, also making for a hot stay.
These things obvioulsy happen, but the owners response, should have been more attentive, they should have sent somebody down to look at both. Instead, in our case, they asked the cleaner to try and open the window, she couldn't, and that was that!
Food was on a par with a Chef and Brewer etc
Location was good. But some traffic noise being so close to A303
Staff pleasant

Thank you for your review.
I am sorry you were not entirely satisfied with your stay with us.
With regards to the window, i personally tried to fix it (and failed).
It was a case of it being open or closed. Unfortunately we were not able to get it fixed till the Monday.
We take great pride in our food and use locally sourced ingredients where possible. Our restaurant is extremely popular and would hope that we are a little better than a little chef.
Thank you again for your feedback.

We stayed for one night and we had dinner at the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For dinner we had steaks and they were yummy comfort food. The room was clean, nice, with plenty of room and a VERY comfortable bed. Breakfast was a buffet with all the full English options and was also very yummy comfort food. If we ever find ourselves out that way again we will be staying at the Hunters Lodge.

After a lovely (but exhausting) family holiday in Cornwall, we thought we would break our journey home to Suffolk with a visit to Longleat Safari park. After a long look on the internet trying to find suitable accommodation nearby for a family of 5 (two adults, children age 10, 7 and 3) we stumbled across the Hunters Inn. What a gem! The family room was more than we expected - clean, tidy, welcoming and although there was a double, two singles and very comfortable camp bed for our 3 yr old it was spacious! The play area for the children was and is amazing - the food was great .. but I would recommend the wonderful carvery. The breakfast was lovely, buffet style (non greasy) English breakfast, options of cereals, fruit and yogurts, juices, coffee - lots of choices!
Dave the bar manager was polite, hardworking and very helpful when we had to cut our two night stay short due to an illness in the family at home. The staff were friendly and very happy to help. Please, if you are looking for a place to stay with a family, do book up at the Hunters Inn we highly recommend it.

What a fantastic hidden treasure. Tastefully furnished, clean rooms, comfortable bed, spacious mini hotel. Staff were so attentive to every guests needs, full english breakfast comes included in the price. Food is served all day. We took advantage of the packed lunch and we were not disappointed. I would recommend!!

My boyfriend booked this hotel as a part of my birthday present. I was expecting it to be more like a little b&b but instead was a small hotel, the staff were local and very friendly always happy to help! The room itself was lovely and very clean well furnished. Food was amazing, and reasonably priced, portions weren't done by halves. Location is perfect to go to all the local attractions such as longleat, cheddar gorge and wookey hole. Don't be put off by the A303 being close by, you can barely hear it! It's very useful being close by.

Good old fashioned pub / restaurant, with guest rooms. They've spent an awful lot of money on this place, and it shows. Rooms and facilities are spotless. The immaculate gardens have a suberb kids play area.

Even smokers will be happy ! Patio doors in your room, lead to decked terrace, so us smokers can slip outside for a fag. :)

Bar and food are excellent, good value, staff and management polite and welcoming.

Free Wifi is a bonus. No moble phone service in the area, which depending on your point of view, is a distinct bounus, for me anyway. :)

Room Tip: Depending where you're coming from, your satnav lies, go up to the junction, and turn left, it...

I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and was so pleased we did. Our room was huge, very comfortable....in fact my husband didn't want to leave, he fell in love with the memory foam mattress. The bathroom was large also and although our room was facing the road, we had no noise issues due to the double glazing. This was the cheapest place we stayed in during our three weeks away yet it was one of the best. Well done Hunters Lodge. And as far as breakfast was concerned, YUMMY!!! I had to smile at the fried toast (it was an option), something I hadn't had since my first visit to the UK back in the 70's. There was an interesting option I didn't take up on but wish I did that was a picnic hamper they can put together for you for a small fee. What a unique yet very handy option.
