“weekend break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Had a very pleasant stay at this village inn, good breakfast and a comfy bed
what more could you need. The location of this accommodation is ideal for walkers and is also a dog friendly pub. The beer is good too.

Spent two nights here. A very friendly family run hotel, nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was freshly cooked too order. If your looking for value for money and don't care about the posh bedspread then this is the place. Would we return or recommend the Penscot Inn, defiantly.

Went to a family wedding in Wedmore and five of us stayed in this venue from Friday to Sunday morning. We were made most welcome by the lady of the house and shown to the three rooms we had booked. We ate in the restaurant that evening and all of our meals were cooked to our separate requirements and of the of the highest order. The same applies to the breakfast each morning. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The inn is exactly what it says it is .A village Inn. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Just ask the owners they are very helpful

Just stayed for 1 night on our way down to Devon.
It's a very old building that would certainly benefit from being spruced up a bit.
The staff were very good and friendly, the food good and a good comfortable bed.
Also good beer and dog friendly.

My wife and I stayed at The Penscot Inn last weekend (6th & 7th June 2014) we must say it was delightful, the staff and locals made us very welcome.

We must say a special thank you to Jamie who works behind the bar, apart from being very efficient he is a very knowledgeable young man, who has a great sense of humour, he is a credit to the Penscot and also his parents, well done Jamie :)

The room we stayed in (Room 16) was a nice room, it is en suite with a shower (by the way the shower head needs / needed fixing but we managed to use it just fine) the room is a tad tired but it has such a comfy bed its amazing!! and my wife and I do not stay in hotel rooms to admire the decor we want what we got great value and a really lovely stay.

The choice of breakfast items is plentiful and the quality is just fine and very enjoyable. We ate there on both nights and the food is just amazing, really tasty and very nice.

All in all we had a great stay at the Penscot, thanks to the staff and locals.

Thanks Penscot Inn

Room Tip: Our room (16) was fine, also understand Oliver, he is a very helpful and good humoured guy!
