Our room was a good size, clean, well decorated. Staff are all very helpful. Make sure if you are tall you ask for a large bed! We had to change rooms because the bed was too small. This is the second time we have stayed, and we plan to return. Lovely hotel to relax and get away for a snug...

Another stay at this lovely hotel. A wonderful dinner of local beef slow cooked and oh so tender, with delicious wines - what more could you want?! We stayed in the same room as last time and it was as comfy and pretty as we remembered. The gardens have been worked in since we were last there and they look...

This is a nice small hotel set in a lovely village. The hotel has an old world charm, nice room, if a bit chintzy! What let it down was the quality and quantity of food, given the relatively high prices charged. Breakfast was nice, but again, spoiled by the small portions. Improve the food quality and quantity and it would...

Thank you for taking the time to not only write your review but also your kind words regarding the hotel, I've spoken to the kitchen staff who were all very upset that the food offering wasn't as we would have like unfortunately without being told at the time giving us chance to redo your meal or not knowing what you...

Traditional style hotel with sumptuous room/suite - excellent value for money, and the food in the restaurant is absolutely superb. Very clean and comfortable with separate public lounge area if meeting a colleague. Very welcoming reception and attentive staff.

We booked at short notice to break our journey to Minehead, and chose Farthings because they accommodate dogs. We arrived after last orders, so were offered a platter of starters, which was tasty and just what was required after a 4 hour drive. Staff were very friendly and obliging. Our room was very spacious with comfortable king sized bed, good...

We booked a last-minute stay for my husband and I and our 2 dogs. The room was excellent - pretty, clean and very comfortable. Lots of room - a king sized bed, 2 seater sofa, lovely antique furniture and views over the rear garden. Meals, beer and wine were superb and service was excellent. As we had dogs with us,...

This is a very nice small hotel with pleasant, welcoming staff and lots to commend it. Our room was clean and comfortable a the place as a whole was attractive. There were a few 'niggles' - loose toilet seat, empty marmalade pot at breakfast and empty croissant tray. The practice of charging for wi-fi access after a certain limit was...
