“Friendly cosy hotel”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

The staff were friendly and attentive. Rooms a reasonable size and everything very clean and presentable. Good central location and priced very reasonably. I arrived for a late check in but staff were ready for me.

Over all hotel ok,but if you are offered a room over reception or the kitchen ask for a move,we were in room 12.The continual noise from an extractor fan and the heat in the room are unacceptable. ???? ,

Room Tip: Anywhere but over reception/kitchen/boiler room!!

Dear Janekjane,

Thank you for taking the time to write and review and for your constructive comments.

Please accept my apologies for the disturbance in terms of noise from the extraction and the excessive heat.

Please may I assure you that this is unusual for the Corner House Hotel, Taunton.

I believe that we have managed to get to the source of the problem in terms of the extraction which has now been rectified.

In terms of the heat aspect we do turn down the radiators during hot periods and we are also looking at putting in an air conditioning unit for each room.

We do offer Standard Double Rooms and Large Double Rooms which are higher up the building and more peaceful as being further away from the main road.

Thank you again for your comments and for bringing these points to our attention.

We look forward to welcoming you back so on.

Kind regards,

Nigel.

Although the rooms don't possess any of the luxuries that I'm used to, this hotel was still just as wonderful. The staff were always attentive, welcoming and very friendly. The restaurant was cosy and well set out. The food was utterly fabulous and beyond a doubt definitely of the highest star quality, both in presentation and flavour. Wonderful choices on the menu accompanied by an exceptional wine list. my compliments to your chef. The hotel rooms are kept immaculately spotless and nothing is too much trouble, not even a sewing kit for a loose button after midnight. We enjoyed our stay so much that we intend re-visiting for another week this May. Keep up the good work everyone and see you again soon!

I have stayed here a few times and although some rooms are tiny, the food more than makes up for it. Really very nice, as is the Chilean Pinot at the bar! However, the last couple of stays have highlighted a deterioration in the general upkeep and decor of the hotel. The carpets look unclean and the paintwork / decor is very tired. It's starting to look very uncared for. Also, the last time I stayed (last Wednesday) I was told that my employers agency hadn't booked breakfast when I registered. The young man and woman on reception were very insistent. I reserved breakfast which was very good! (Small point, the loaf of bread didn't have a cloth to cover it when cutting a slice). When I went to book out, firstly I was asked for the charge of the room. When I insisted this was already taken care of the chap checked, agreed and said there was nothing to pay. I queried breakfast and he said this was included in the booking. Very confusing! I'm really debating whether to return as my colleagues have already decided not to from previous visits.

Dear Steph C,

It was a pleasure to welcome you back again to the Corner House Hotel, Taunton and we appreciate your constructive comments.

We have just completed our new Concept Room (Room 4) and it has been received extremely well. So we are now in the process of planning our ongoing refurbishment programme to roll out the new colour scheme.

We are also in the process of replacing the carpet that runs along the bar area and proposing to replace it for a natural stone floor which will improve the ambiance of the restaurant.

Please accept my apologies for the confusion over the breakfast charge and for the delay in checking out.

When you are next considering staying with us please do contact me so that we can offer you a free upgrade to our new Concept Room.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards,

Nigel.

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
