“"What a wonderful B&B!!"”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

Primrose House,is without doubt,the best B&B we have ever stayed in.The standards are first class and it deserves the highest star rating!! Devi and Helen are the perfect hosts,so friendly and nothing is too much trouble.The attention to detail is amazing. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast was truly delicious. We stayed in the King Alfred room and woke to breathtaking views over the Mendips and King Alfred's Tower. We were sorry to leave but will definitely be back and would highly recommend Primrose House to anyone visiting the west country.

Faultless,wonderful property and rooms,superb hosts and breakfasts.We could not think of anything to improve the experience.

One piece of advice if eating out and having a drink in Bruton getting a taxi back in the evenings is difficult to say the least especially if weddings in town you need to book during the day to get an evening pick up.We ate at The Chapel and Truffles (French) both were good.It's too far to walk from the B & B to Bruton and coming back would be mainly uphill along unlit country lanes.

Room Tip: All rooms will be good.

Thank you for a fantastic nights stay at your B&B. The place was beautiful decorated and looked after, and your hosting skills were great.

Only shame was that we didn't have longer there!

Many thanks again.

We had a great time staying at Primrose House. Devi & Helen were friendly and looked after us well from the moment we arrived. The food was great and the room was beautiful - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

There is not a lot I can say really but excellent. From the moment I spoke to Devi on the phone to the moment we left on Sunday morning I found the hospitality very warm and welcoming. For the level of service and quality that you both offer I would have expected to pay upwards of £200 in a hotel. I think you have both got it spot on and if travelling in the area again would certainly stay with you if there were rooms available.

The rooms were amazing with very well thought out decoration and presentation. I would say that there had been some serious attention to detail with regards to the room and its facilities. We stayed in the King Alfred room.

The choice at breakfast was again 5 star with nothing to much trouble. The freshly cooked breakfast was wonderful Helen.

Helen and Devi make you feel more like friends than paying guests.

I have no negative points at all. All I can say to anyone reading this is book in you will not be dissapointed.

I will certainly recommend you to anyone that I know who is looking to stay in the area as this is excellent value for money.

We had such a lovely time staying with Devi and Helen, Primrose House is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. The rooms, food and location are second to none and then to top it all our hosts Devi and Helen felt like friends that we hadn’t seen for a long time but couldn’t wait to see again. It maybe listed as a four star but in our opinion 8 stars wouldn’t do it justice. We will definitely make it our number 1 destination next time we are in the area. Oh and by the way ‘Herbie’ is amazing, you need to visit to find out all about him... he was the icing on the cake for us.

Room Tip: No need to choose all the rooms are of the highest standard

Arriving later than planned prior to a wedding we were given a very warm welcome by Dev and Helen. Being a windy day, I needed some hair grips to keep my hat on and Helen came to the rescue! Everything was to the highest standard and comfort. They even drove us to the wedding.
Having had a very comfortabe nights sleep, we then had a superb breakfast. The location was splendid, being on the top of a hill with lovely views over the surrounding counrtyside. Dev and Helen were fantastic hosts and we look forward to treating our daughter and son-in-law to a stay at Primrose House. Rae and Rosie
