“Low standards and very overpriced”
Reviewed 16 July 2008

Found this B&B via Taunton tourist website - very disappointed. We've stayed at numerous B&Bs in the UK over the past year or so (attending weddings), and Blorenge is most expensive establishment we've stayed in. It was clean, but other than that, very disappointing. Breakfast was very basic - for £82 a night you expect a little more than cornflakes, tired fruit and nasty 'value' sausages! Decor was very outdated with unhygienic 80s style upholstered bedhead and bedside table. Most telling of all, the visitor's book was peppered with large patches of tippex where staff have clearly tried to erase negative comments from visitors...

Verdict: overpriced and extremely underwhelming. Even our taxi driver told us it had a poor reputation locally.

Reviewed 30 June 2008

This is the third time that we have stayed at the Blorenge Guest House. It is within easy walking distance to the town centre and railway station, if you don't come by car. Twice we have slept in a four poster bed which is different. The breakfasts are good with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and, of course, the full English breakfast.
Parking is limited so get your spot early if they are busy!
