On the plus side, the breakfast is excellent.
Well that's the positives out of the way!
The whole accommodation area was shabby, with a chest freezer greeting you in he entrance lobby.
Garish nylon carpets and woodchip wallpaper abound, it reminded me of staying over with elderly relatives in the 1970's, plus it smelled somewhat like a care home (to the extent that we bought incense sticks to overcome the aroma!).
Our double room was so small that there was nowhere to put a suitcase, whilst the ensuite had to have a sliding door, which led into a shower/WC room the width of the shower cubicle (it must have been a wardrobe in a former life). The shower was feeble to say the least, whilst when the WC was flushed there was an overpowering smell of drains.
I don't know what people get up to in Somerset, but the sign above the toilet requesting that nappies/tampons/condoms etc. must not be flushed down the pan included of all things nuts and bolts!!!!!!
Our daughter was in a single room that was no better in size or quality than ours.
To add insult to injury, proudly displayed outside were signs showing that the hotel is rated 3* by the AA and that it offers "luxurious en-suite accommodation".
It would have been a joke, but for the fact that we had paid £330 up front for three nights!
