Budget room was a bit of a let down, very hot and small and uncomfortable (not recommended for two people). The terrace room was excellent!!!! The difference in rate does not warrant the rate of the budget room vs the terrace room. Staff, excellent service especially Gale , extremely friendly helpful and just an all round asset to your establishment..

It also feels safe.Rocco made us all feel very welcome and the whole place has a very relaxed, gentle atmosphere. The pool...

The receptionist lady is the best, very friendly and warm. Best customer service. I arrived earlier than the check-in time but they were able to accommodate me while I waited which was super cool. Breakfast is amazing and the rooms too.

The service was friendly but our room was very small looking into blankness. The bed was small for two of us and the room was extremely hot. Breakfast was good. The pool did not look clean with the black colouring at the bottom

Found it a bit out to f the way for everything. Our room a bit small. Don't take budget room unless you on your own. The breakfast was outstanding. We were only there for one night so hard to do a proper rating.

Needed a quick stay over as attending a wedding - We found Somerset Villa Guesthouse to be accommodating and the staff exceptionally friendly. Our rooms were lovely and we felt very at home. We came in late and had a back entrance into the room so it helped not to disturb the rest of the guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our...
