Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed overnight after a family event and couldn't have been happier with my experience. Very accommodating to my request to check-in early to change after a long drive. Delicious set menu supper. It was a Tues in early Feb, but there were plenty of locals in the restaurant and many obviously regulars. Comfortable room and en suite, spotlessly clean and comfortable with A/C. Fresh and tasty breakfast. Great value. It is a restaurant with rooms in the centre of a bustling but small market town. Some reviewers obviously hadn't done their research if they were expecting anything different. Parking was a bit tricky, but the Sainsburys next door has a big car park with cheap tariff (cash or App payments only). I'd happily recommend and would stay again.

Wow! Everything was perfect from the moment I arrived to the moment we checked out. A very, very warm welcome awaited me upon arrival. Room immaculately clean, comfortable and large enough for two friends to kick back and chill out. (I was told upon arrival we had been upgraded.. which was a delightful surprise). We had dinner at the Bath house hotel. It was thoroughly enjoyable. The food will be a memorable experience of our stay. Perfect! Breakfast was exactly the same. A choice of everything you’d expect, freshly cooked and brought to the table hot with a smile, and at the time we’d requested the night before. I can honestly say, I don’t think I have ever had such tasty, satisfying food consistently, all under one roof. Faultless. The staff are warm, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. A fabulous stay for two friends, who met half way between Cornwall and Hampshire for a long awaited catchup.

We read the great reviews and booked for a night away. Boy we’re so glad we chose this hotel and restaurant. It’s just fabulous a real little gem. Beautifully presented with fantastic attention to detail. Our lovely room was Bluebell and had a very comfortable bed plus a en-suite with a large walk in shower. We eat in the restaurant which has a great atmosphere with jazz music in the background but the star was the food. I had a really tasty fillet steak with a very nice bottle of red merlot wine. My wife has the fish pie with rose wine and loved both. The excellent cheese board to finish. It’s over yet. After a very good night’s sleep it was a full English breakfast which yet again was top notch. Take our word for it and stay at The Bath House. You truly won’t be disappointed. Enjoy.

Looking for somewhere to stay for 1 night at short notice in the Chard area and saw the reviews for this small hotel. We found the area to park around the back, bit tight, best to reverse in but not an issue. Greeted warmly by the lady owner who I assume is Karine Jim as mentioned on the website. Shown to our room which whilst not big was suitable for us. Room was super clean as was the ensuite. Note, the toilet is of the Saniflo type, so don't go sticking anything apart from loo paper down there! These units do make a bit of noise though when flushing, so we avoided flushing at night so as not to disturb other guests. View out of the window was into a row of slightly dilapidated and boarded up shop units, so not the best part of town, next door is Sainsbury's. Good night's sleep, double glazing efficient and a/c provided but not needed. Bed and linen were clean and of a high standard. Unfortunately for us, there was a special event that evening for which there was a fixed set menu of Asian food which my partner didn't fancy so we are elsewhere but when we came back the restaurant was full. There was no disturbance to us when we retired to our room. Breakfast, chosen the evening before was fabulous, see my pic. Freshly cooked with quality ingredients, a real treat. We enjoyed our stay here, there's only 6 bedrooms but everything is clean and well maintained. The restaurant was displaying several awards, shame we didn't get to sample the menu but it looks like a great place to eat as well as stay.The owners obviously work very hard to keep this place up to scratch.

We chose the Bath House purely on the quality stated in other Tripadvisor Reviews. We needed to stay for three nights to attend a family function locally, and it fitted the bill in lots of other ways as well. We arrived late in the afternoon, to a very warm welcome from the front of house lass, and were shown to our very comfortable room, which was prepared very well, as all rooms were (another family group attending was closed by), and enjoyed a very delicious, light supper in the clean dining room. The service and the food were excellent, and my wife (an ice cream connoisseur) extolled the virtues of the quality of the product they use for puddings. Breakfasts were equally well presented and delicious, with late changes and extras no problem. To sum up, an excellent place to stay, with very efficient management and day to day running. Nothing is too much trouble. The very thoughtful owner was kind enough to do a little ironing of my wife's cotton jacket...beautifully. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. I have only one comment to make in the area of shortcomings: that is, I really missed a wall light or other illumination in the bathroom, for the purpose of shaving and for my wife, application of make-up. It would make both operations very much easier, and more pleasurable. Despite this tiny detail, it is still worth a full row of stars!

The exterior belies the amazing interior. Beautifully understated contemporary decor matched with amazingly comfortable rooms... We were impressed that the bedside tables not only contained the usual Gideon Bible, but also a King Charles III New Testament! As for the food....unbeatable.. and perfect breakfast. Above all, owners and staff who could not do more to be helpful and friendly! David and Paula

I have never had the urge to eat off the floor but I believe here you could get away with it. The shower was the cleanest shower I have ever seen in my life. The bed was comfortable. the pillows great and even though the room was the smallest it was perfectly formed 2 slight niggles. Please add an extra blanket in the wardrobe and make the breakfast sausages fatter :) I will stay again next time I am over there
