“pretty surroundings but......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

First impressions: a nice place in nice surroundings. Our room was downstairs and very dark. I applaud the use of eco light bulbs but when you need to turn on every light in the room (there were many) it defeats the object. even with them all on i couln't read!
The bathroom had a shower, we booked a bath but hey ho, give it a go. There was nowhere to put anything in the bathroom, hangers etc, no loo brush and no heated towel rail so we had wet towels all weekend.
Sleep: Poor insulation meant very noisy from the people above and to the side and the waterworks kept us awake too.
WIFI: didn't work.
Didn't try the restaurant for dinner cos the menu lacked imagination.
If you stay here be sure to book an upstairs room to avoid the noise at night.

Room Tip: Only book upstairs rooms

We really enjoyed the food here and had a lovely meal. We took young children and it was the sort of place where I felt a bit self-conscious about that as it was generally a quiet environment and there was no specific children's menu. However, thankfully the kids behaved and we had no problems, but I probably won't go with a bigger number of children or if the kids were in a crazy mood! Would definitely go back for a romantic meal, or with other adults though.

we have not had the experience of staying here as the staff are not capable of taking bookings even though emails were sent from us and them and even a phone call to leave payment details. WE emailed them this morning just to double check everything is ok for this weekend and we had a phone call today to tell us none of their staff booked us in. ridiculous...they say they haven't had anything from us...we have our emails and their emails to prove them wrong and the fact we actually spoke to Peter who works there and gave him our card details! we are now stuck on a place to stay!! We are attending the Truck Show as we are a haulage business which is taking part in the show!!! Thanks for your disgusting service!! do not advice anyone to go there!!!

Room Tip: Don't bother!!

Country style rooms which were spotlessly clean. Lovely food and excellent service in the restaurant. Lady owner/manager (I think) could not have been more friendly and helpful. Added bonus of free wi if in the bedrooms.

The rooms were excellent, beautifully furnished and clean. the food and service was really good, staff were efficient and friendly.The owners were really friendly and helpful. The place is situated in a lovely peaceful village. We were not rushed it was a lovely place to unwind. I think it would be a great place to have as a local. When we are next down in Somerset we will definitely book this hotel again.
