Stayed here from 11th to 13th July. Booked an en suite room with a 4 poster bed which was great. We had a good welcome and we're not disappointed with our room. Breakfast was great and all dealt with by the ladies on shift with a smile. Great hotel that I would recommend to anyone visiting Taunton.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed overnight and can honesty say this was a lovely hotel. Worth every penny. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and garden well presented. The photos I saw beforehand of the hotel need updating as I was surprised by how nice it was. This was a value for money hotel to be recommended!

We wanted to stay in Taunton to visit our new little great grandson, and not having been to Taunton before, had no idea of location. However, we were very pleasantly surprised, to find this lovely apartment was just as described, and within easy walking distance of all the amenities of Taunton. The apartment itself is well equipped, with pleasant airy rooms. As we were on the first floor, we had patio doors leading on to a spacious balcony, complete with table , chairs and parasol. It overlooked the garden and swimming pool, and as the weather was hot while we were there, the doors were open most of the time, and this very much added to the pleasure of our stay. We had ample cooking facilities, comfortable beds, and a really good shower in the well-appointed bathroom. In fact we did feel so much at home that we threatened George we would probably not give the apartment back! George too, has been a delight. Nothing has been too much trouble. Everything has been clean and well managed, with George going out of his way to ensure we were totally comfortable during our week's stay. We will certainly be hoping to book there again soon, and are looking forward to it. Thank you George, and Blorenge House, for such a wonderful week.!

We stayed here for the Rod Stewart concert, wanted a hotel close to the venue which was the Somerset Cricket Ground. Hotel is clean, well run and even has a swimming pool in the garden to relax with. So if you plan to visit Taunton for the cricket or other events, then this is a great place to stay at a very reasonable cost, especially when breakfast and free wifi are included.

Room Tip: Perhaps a room at the back to avoid any potential traffic noise.

Stayed here for the Rod Stewart concert on 18/6/14.
Perfect location, 10 mins walk from the arena, no hassle with shuttles. Easy parking.
Hotel has a lot of character and was clean and fresh - George was the perfect host.
Could perhaps do with a little modernisation, esp the en-suites (a comment, not a criticism)
Would definitely stay again if in the area. Even Rod would appreciate it!
Free wifi a definite plus.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 7 - has a modern four poster bed and en-suite, facing the front of the building.

Booked in to this lovely place and the reason was the cost, I booked into a single room that was not on suite and had breakfast and it cost under £60 for the night. The room was clean and smelt fresh with the normal stuff in the bedrooms, plenty of tea and coffee and a free view TV. There was also a free WIFI (always a bargain) and free use of the swimming pool that is on site. The staff were friendly, helpful and very pleasent from the moment i arrived to the moment i left and i would like to thank them for making my stay more pleasant. Breakfast was a chioce of Juices toast preserves and cereals (help your self) you then could choose from the cooked menu either full english or bits of to suit your taste along with a good vegetarian choice as well. This was well cooked and served with a smile. I was offered and took a refill of the teapot. Dining hall was clean tidy and serivice was prompt. In the rooms there is plenty of information of places to eat visit and do when in the area. There was plenty of people there from the reunion i was attending and all these spoke highly of the place. I will be using again and thank you for the service etc that i was given. There are other choices of rooms available at this wonderful place from 4 poster beds and holiday apartments.

Room Tip: Room to the rear may be quieter but all rooms are double glazed

Our family of 4 stayed in the new-looking self-catering apartments May 2014. The 2-bed apartment is in a block of 3-4 at the end of the main house, so separate from everyone else. No. 7 on first floor has;
- lovely [well kitted-out] kitchen / diner / lounge with balcony (inc breakfast table / chairs) overlooking rear gardens
- twin bedroom with small single beds & wardrobe
- bathroom with WC, bath & good shower
- utility closet wi boiler, iron & ironing board, vacuum cleaner
- main bedroom with double, large wardrobe, small sofa

You could happily live in this apartment, it's got everything you need and everything is very new & in great condition.

If I was being very picky the only thing I could possibly criticise is that one set of curtains in the lounge don't work properly, but that's just splitting hairs; it's a lovely place to stay and Phill, the proprietor, was very helpful via email. I'd happily take my family there again.

Room Tip: Apartment #7 has the balcony.
