From the outside the Alcombe House Hotel is impressive to say the least and certainly not be disappointed as you step through the front door with the grand staircase. Our room was impeccably clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom. Because of COVID-19 no breakfast was available although they had enough room between the dining room and lounge felt to make it work “ Pity because I had stayed before on business and the standard of breakfast was excellent. If I had one criticism it would be the welcome from the owner , well there wasn’t one and frankly trying to get a conversation was like pulling teeth , almost as though he couldn’t wait to get us out of the way unfortunately. Around the corner was a delightful pub The Britannia well worth a visit.
Gem of a hotel in the picturesque surroundings of Minehead. A great place for a stopover en route to Cornwall. Top host to boot at a really reasonable price and the rooms are spotless and spacious aswell. There’s a bit of history to the place too. I couldn’t recommend the Alcombe enough. Hope to be back again one day!
My husband and I stayed one night as we were travelling around and wanted to see Dunster and it’s castle, we chose Alcombe House as it was close to Dunster. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless and well heated so we were pleased. The only thing I would say is that as the hotel is on the main road there was some traffic noise but as I always take earplugs it wasn’t a problem for me.
Spent one night here for a family party. Arrived about 3ish to a very grumpy welcome. My mum can’t see that well and as we had 3 rooms we needed to fill a slip in each which I was going to do for my mum Snapped that we needed to complete one per room when mum started to get flustered. Was also barked at that we need to pay upfront which was not an issue but did expect a warm welcome. This unwarm welcome followed us into the bedrooms. Heating had been left off and storage heaters took ages to warm up. Sons room at top right of hotel wouldn’t switch on but didn’t want me to complain as the welcome we had. The rooms are very clean and the house is beautiful so no qualms there at all just a bit bah humbug on arrival. Had a great night with family but left hotel at 9 and won’t be returning there. Some lovely hotels and b and bs in Minehead to choose from. Not this one …
Stayed hear for 5 nights on business. Arrived to a warm welcome . Room was spotlessly clean . Comfortable bed . Plenty of hot water in the ample size bathroom . Nothing to much trouble . I highly recommend this Accomidation
