Was greeted by Fiona immediately made us feel welcome and lucky for us the hotel was quiet so we had the place to ourselves . The rooms are superb big spacious and in keeping with the whole Victorian feel ...

Breakfast is home cooked and just delicious I would recommend anyone staying ok the area to look no further than here.

We were visiting river cottage and Fiona organised taxi nothing too much trouble

We will visit again

Stayed: April 2014

We stayed for one night in this wonderful B&B. Wish it had been longer. Fiona is absolutely lovely, and makes everyone feel very much at home. Adored our room, spotlessly clean, and very stylish. Everything we needed was provided.. Even Sherry and a chocolate :-). Beatrice the Newfoundland is adorable. I just wanted to move in and live there!!!!!!!. Breakfast was fabulous, in a lovely dining room. Loved every minute of our stay....

Room Tip: Room 4. Beautiful, with a very spacious bathroom.

Stayed for one night this is a gem of a small hotel only 5 rooms and a lot of thought and attention has gone into the detail and comfort of the rooms for guests. We arrived early evening and were greeted by the owner Fiona who welcomed us and showed us to our room. The room was of a very high standard with lots of well thought out furniture. The room was very clean as was the en suite bathroom which had a lovely Victorian bath and shower. The bed was very comfortable with good quality bed linen.
Breakfast menu was of a good standard a lot of choice freshly cooked and very attentive staff.
All in all a great place to stay and would not hesitate to stay again if I was in the area.

We stayed for a 3 night break a week or so ago. We wanted somewhere comfortable and spacious with a sitting room. I am so pleased that we found Kerrington House, it was everything we hoped for and more. The house is lovely, delightful, very warm, everything you might want is there, plus others that you might not, but that are still a delight, like the decantor of sherry and chocolates in the bedroom! The bed was soo comfortable and the breakfast great (with top notch juice and jams as well). We found Axminster very convenient for going out and about and found excellent eating places where the kitchens had imaginative and intelligent approaches to gluten and dairy free cooking, a real wow too!!

Room Tip: We were in Gardenia, very good, sunny, bath with shower over.

Very clean and tidy. Very welcoming and friendly, love the Newfoundland puppy! Breakfast was excellent. Room was beautiful lots of little details added, I.e. Sherry in your room and choccies... and biscuits, better than some top class hotels. Short walk to good restaurants in Axminster. Easy parking. Would recommend anybody to stay here. Our reason for going was a course in Axminster skill centre, which my other half was attending, so it all works in perfectly.

Room Tip: They are all beautiful and well appointed.

We needed rooms in a hurry for a funeral party with people coming from all over the world to attend, Fiona went that extra mile for us, put everyone up in her lovely hotel, putting up with late arrivals making everyone feel welcome, serving delicious breakfasts and making a difficult time all the more bearable. Thank you we really appreciate all you did for us.
