“Buisness trip”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Came to this hotel originally for a week and ended up staying 10 nights because of extended work commitments. The staff were always friendly despite being really busy over the Valentines weekend. The rooms were clean, spacious and the showers were lovely. The food was excellent, both breakfast and evening meal. The hotel is centrally located and easy to find.
I would definetly stop here again.

Arrived at Corner House to spend one night with my partner. Received a very warm welcome from girl at reception. We allowed to leave car in their car park while we went for walk round town as we arrived before booking time. On gaining entery to our room later we found it to be a large bright and spacious room. Duvet cover and pillow cases were white and there was a purple runner along the bottom of the bed which I promptly removed as it had numerous stains and marks on it. The duvet cover looked to have a cigarette burn on it. We were booked in for dinner, bed and breakfast. We were given the choice of main menus or the Valentine special at no extra cost. We chose the main. The food was fantastic. We had the local sausage selection with chutneys for starter then I had lamb shank. Could not fault food or service. Everyone pleasant and helpful. Would stay again. Shame about the bedding. There is a manhole cover on the road outside our room that rattles every time traffic goes over it.

Room Tip: We were in room 4 which was large but faces road.

Dear Mary M,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Corner House Hotel, Taunton further to your recent Valentine's weekend.

Whilst we were pleased to hear that you both enjoyed your stay with us please accept my apologies for the bed runner which was not to our usual standard. Since your stay it has been laundered and we have ordered additional ones to rotate when they need to be cleaned.

All of our supplies come from local Taunton suppliers including our meat from Riverside Butchers on St James St Taunton.

Thank you again for your kind comments as they are much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Nigel.

Slightly confused about all the negative press this hotel gets, it is exceptionally good value for money. When I booked I was asked if I wanted a small double or big double so I new what is as getting. The shower was hot. There was parking. The bar was well run and a good choice, breakfast is what would be expected, cooked breakfast (very weird sausage hence only4 stars, couldn't eat it) and normal continental selection. More than happy with my stay

We have been to the Corner House Hotel/Wine & Sausage a number of times over the years. Seeing the offer above was on, we decided to have a treat and stay the night. Room was heated, clean and tidy. Bathroom was nice but sash window in there did make a noise with the wind outside. Bed linen was clean and starched, we had a good night's sleep, despite the rattly window! Complimentary tea & coffee included fresh 'real' milk in the fridge, as well as a large bottle of water - a welcome addition. The room was basic on the whole, however we were told the Hotel is beginning a re-furb and were offered an upgrade to the new concept room when we next stay. So looking forward to that! We stayed for dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant - both were very enjoyable and we have commented under the Wine & Sausage title.
There were little wrinkles during our stay but when we told the House Manager, he apologised and assured us they will be ironed out. On rating this hotel, three blobs is average, four is very good. On the whole; well done Corner House Hotel!

Room Tip: Hotel just outside town centre on busy road. If you need quiet, ask for room on opposite side of hot...

My wife and i stayed here for one night last week. The hotel is extremely well furbished in terms of rooms and food. First, however, the staff; they were all extremely helpful, nothing too much trouble. The food was excellent, breakfast particularly. set us up for the day. The bar was stunning in its array of wines. I had a Chilean merlot which was exquisite. Please try it. The room was fine, with en-suite as you would expect. If you are travelling to Cornwall, its a great stop-over. You might find Taunton a good place to visit as well.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine!

Where to star from: this is not a hotel, it is a group guest houses (i.e. homes) put together with a reception and a disgusting food service.
So it is in reality a group of rooms of different sizes and you will be lucky if they give you what you have paid for.
I booked a large double room and they gave something that you can call a compact: 3 sides of the double bed were in contact with 3 of the walls of the room, i.e. the room was not much bigger than a double room. The toilet had flaking paint, the carpets were disgustingly dirty and the wifi was very low.
When I went to reception, they told me that there had been a mistake and they have given me the wrong room, but that they were fully booked and could not change it.
The 'restaurant': I would not call such a name when the only thing they do is to heat a pre-cooked mini-leg of lamb and they charge you £16 without adding any sides to it unless you pay extra. So this is what I eat for dinner.
At breakfast I asked for an omelette and they served me something messy and disgustingly smelly piece of egg inflated and full of little dots of something burnt along it. I.e. they put the battered egg in used oil. They obviously cannot cook. This is what I did NOT eat for breakfast. When I complain saying that it was disgusting and I was not going to eat, they even did not offered me anything else. I would not have asked anything else. I just ate some yougurts as they do not make them there.
And last but not least. The deal that I got through booking.com was includding dinner and breakfast, but they tried to charge me this separately on top of the deal. It took over 20 minutes to resolve the situation and apparently they have confused my reservation with another one made through laterooms or lastminute. Probably a different booking from a person that did not get such a good deal, but paid more. Probably they realised it was really a busy time and they regretted the deals they agreed with.
In summary, you may not get what you have paid for and you may need to argue to get part of the agreed deal. What you will not get for sure is good food.
