Reviewed 26 November 2011

As we were in the area for a funeral,a quick search on the internet for accomodation and struck gold with the Corner House hotel in Taunton.The service was first class,the food excellent the rooms were comfortable and kept to a high standard of cleanliness and all at a very reasonable price .Advice from the friendly staff about the area was spot on as we had never been in the location before.
Will be in the location next year for a short break and will be using the Corner House as a base

Friendly, helpful and efficient staff both at front desk, in bar,and in the restaurant. Room small but well heated and ventilated, comfy bed, and efficient bathroom. Restaurant had a good choice of vegetarian food and the beer was well kept. Breakfast good as well.

Room Tip: If you want more space avoid the 'compact' rooms.

The corner house markets itself as a boutique hotel. Unfortunately there are far too many establishments using this ploy to lure unsuspecting travellers through the door.

First impressions are good albeit that the entrance is tucked down an alley, but reception is bright and service is good. the bar and restaurant is a good concept of simple fare with good wines at affordable prices, so far so good.

Its when you get to the room that it all goes wrong, poorly decorated and furnished with what look like cast off premier inn fittings and a really grotty bathroom with a shower that you have to run around in to get wet.

Oh and by the way I have stayed here as a corporate customer on several occassions but have finally given in and am trying to find somewhere decent for my guys to stay in future.

Room Tip: There aren't any!!

A Birthday Celebration was organised at the Hotel and a room booked for me. The Reception was good and the meal (for +20 people) was efficiently served and for the most part of good quality. Breakfast the following morning was also good. I had asked for a "pleasant" room which cost me £100 p.n., a suplement of £25 on the standard room. It was on the ground floor and approx. 5m x 5m. There was a very high ceiling. The decor was cold and the furnishing very utilitarian - open wardrobe and shelving (no draws) and an MFI table with only a straight chair. I stayed at a Travel-lodge for £29 the week before that had much more atmosphere about it. The bed was kingsize. In the corner was a "porta-cabin" that rose to about two-thirds the height of the room, which held the shower etc and which had an opaque glass door that did not fit. There was complimentary water. The small bottle of red wine (contents of which were not complimentary) was used to prop open the large sash-window which insisted on falling gilloutine-like without it. If I'd paid an extra £25 on top of £50 I would still have been critical. When I told reception that I was disappointed with the room I was told that it was the biggest in the hotel! It did provide parking.

Room Tip: I wouldn't want to suggest anyone stayed there.

Thank you for writing a review. We have an ongoing refurbishment programme, most recently our restaurant in 2009 and 24 of our 45 bedrooms in the last 3 years. My apologies if you found the decoration in one of our older rooms not to your taste but these will be rectified as part of the ongoing refurbishment. We will be happy to place you in one of the more recently refurbished rooms on your next visit.

We took my elderly parents to see some relatives and needed a hotel in Taunton for Bed and Breakfast with one room on the ground floor. The Hotel was described as 3 star, the evening meal was 4 star plus and the service was 5 star. How nice to find owner managers who are so enthusuiastic to provide the best that they can.

The Breakfast on the Sunday morning used local poduce and was the best that we have had in many years.

I stayed here for a few nights in a room over looking the carpark - I could hardly hear the busy road at all and slept well, only being disturbed by the people in the room next to me when they were entering and exiting their room. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The only thing I would change would be to have bath in the bathroom. I would recommend requesting a room with a bath when you're making your booking if you'd like one.

I didn't have breakfast in the hotel, but had dinner and thought the food was delicious. Although the service could have been a bit quicker, the portions are big and I can't recommend the sticky toffee pudding dessert enough - absolutely devine!

Located just a 5 minute walk away from the town centre and a short taxi ride away from the train station (a single taxi journey cost £6), it's location is great.

Overall, I had a pleasant stay and would stay here again :o)
