Thought we would take a short break in the County Town of Somerset and chose the Corner House Hotel due to its location and website description. Was met by a ludicrous regime were it was impossible to book in before the allotted 3:00pm even though some rooms must have been ready. Eventually battled our way through the crowd of people and was shown to the room. The room was cold, damp and dowdy with no functioning radiators just a broken electric heater. Asked to be moved to another room and was told there wasn’t one and we would have to pay a cancellation fee. After some heated discussion we were offered someone else’s room which we were promised would have functioning heating, it didn't.
My advice is give this hotel a very wide berth at any price and head for one of the slightly out of town chain hotels, at least you know what you will get.
This place is horrible,
