Lanes Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in West Coker
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The Lanes is a top quality hotel, whether you are staying for business or pleasure. As you arrive you can see the grounds and the buildings are immaculate, the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable, and the facilities are excellent. They have managed to successfully combine some old-world charm with modern effectiveness. The rooms are all large with great bathrooms, the public areas are well presented and comfortable.

The food is excellent. From the wide breakfast choice to an impeccable restaurant menu, there is something for everyone here. Good choice, well presented and top quality food and service.

It is literally a couple of miles from Yeovil in a delightful English village, with good access to the coast or anywhere else via the A303. The period I stayed there, the rooms were the same price as a nearby Premier Travel Inn. So the choice was English grandeur in a country setting or a "box and bed" convenience hotel for the same or similar price - it was an easy choice.

My colleague was "upgraded" to the Penthouse which was a wonderful top attic room that covered the entire top floor. A little quirky with tapering walls and low ceilings but fabulously equipped with stunning views over the village. As a first time visit to England from the USA, she could not have had a better introduction to the warmth, welcome and hospitality thanks to the staff of the Lanes Hotel.

It can't be beaten in the Yeovil area.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent - check if the Penthouse is available

Met up with an old friend here, yesterday, for lunch and I must agree with HM55 that Lanes is a great place for such an occasion. Good food (my kidney starter was very tasty, steaks cooked as we requested, lovely chips, eye catching, taste bud pleasing desserts). The staff were professional, courteous and very helpful. The ambience at Lanes is conducive to both social and business lunching, in my opinion, while prices are quite reasonable. We sat down at, around 1.30 and didn't leave until about 5.30 after a thoroughly relaxing afternoon.

Having gone there for my brother in laws 65th birthday for the easter weekend was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. eight of us went & 6 had never been there before, my sister & brother in law (his 65th) having been there 3 times before recommended it. The bedrooms were spacious & very nice with a mini bar with beer, water, coke, peanuts & chocolate bars. The Jacuzzi, gym & sauna were free to use & very nice, restaurant was also roomy and food very good with good choice, would recommend this hotel to family & friends.

Room Tip: were in new build by spa, rooms on the left had no balcony so if you smoke ask for room on right han...

My husband and I have been regular customers at Lanes since 2010. Our two boys are getting older (14 and 11) and they accompanied us on our last trip, yesterday/today. We had a superb apartment (Number 2), one double with ensuite shower, one twin plus spacious bathroom, all having bath robes and fluffy white towels. Open plan kitchen/lounge with a TV in every room - even the bathroom! All exceptionally clean. Fridge stocked with complimentary beers, soft drinks water, plus nuts and chocky bars! We had a lovely evening meal and the boys enjoyed playing on the pool table. Many DVD's/PS games available to borrow. All finished off with a fabulous breakfast, full English for Dad and the boys and Smoked Salmon and Scrambled eggs for me! Thanks to Alison and her enthusiastic team. See you again soon! PS. Don't forget to wander through the beautiful gardens and visit the pygmy goats, plus say "quack" to the resident ducks in the stream!

Room Tip: All rooms are of the same exceptional standard, the apartments are ideal for families.

Stayed one night on business. Excellent combination of classic & contemporary - room looked brand new, and was spotless. Evening meal cooked perfectly, service good. Booked a twin room, but my colleague was unable to stay, I was give a reduction in the room rate without having to ask-top marks!

We travelled to Lanes Hotel which is in the picturesque village of West Coker, we had a lovely welcome and rather than being given a key, we were taken to our room, which was a penthouse room. There was a lot of space and the bathroom was well equipped with a bath and shower, good towels and radiators which worked!

The dinner was served in a lovely dining room by good staff, all of whom had a smile on their faces.

When retiring, we noticed the bed was of a good quality as was the bed linen. There was a large TV and DVD player. The only drawback was the sloping roof which you did have to be careful of if you are slightly taller than average.

The choice of breakfast was good and again was served in the lovely dining room, where the sun was streaming in through the windows.

I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel to anyone and we shall definitely return for another stay.
