This was a package, two nights to cover the Bridgewater/Petherton carnival, November 2016. This was our third visit to see the carnival. The hotel offered a complete package to accommodate seeing the carnival, which takes approx. 2hrs plus to pass the front of the hotel. Super food, excellent friendly staff. Hotel standard maintained over the past three years we have... More

I have stayed in this hotel about 10 times and I must say that It needs upgrading big time everything is dated for the £80 per night they charge I do think that they will get away with it all day long Because of the Hinkley power station being built near there.

My friend and I needed a hotel room late in the day, but every hotel we came to was already booked! Somehow, we got off the M5, and found this gem of a hotel. We went in hoping for a room, but sadly, they didn't have one. That could have been it for my story, but I wanted to put... More

Stayed for one night as a base for the Carnival. Check in was quick and efficient. We booked an executive room which was large and very clean. A little dated but all the furnishings were of the highest quality. We went to the bar for a drink before going into Bridgewater for the Carnival. The barman had a great sense... More

A group of us four cyclists stayed here for two nights in August when we cycled from Tiverton to Glastonbury. We had a most enjoyable ride along the canals but a rather unwelcoming 'greeting' by a grumpy receptionist when we arrived at about 5pm. We wondered if we had arrived at Fawlty Towers by mistake. The hotel is very pleasant... More

Very nice Having travelled along the Motorway for quite a number of hours and feeling a bit hungry, we decided to take the next turning and find somewhere to have a bite to eat.

We were there for just one night. Restaurant and breakfast was excellent. Staff was just great - when the waiter heard we were here for the Round Britain Coastal Drive, he introduced us to a couple doing the same and we had a memorable evening.
