The Corner House Hotel
Ranked #13 of 17 Hotels in Taunton
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay for 1 night as part of the hotel's "Flower Show Special" deal. Warmly met by the manager on the morning of our stay with tickets for the flower show which were part of the deal. Plenty of parking and close to Town centre fitted nicely with our plans. On returning to hotel at teatime we were allocated a large, clean, well equiped room in the annexe. Chilled water and fresh milk in the fridge was a nice touch. Restaurant and bar areas are well furnished and welcoming. All the staff we encountered were helpful and pleasant. 3 course dinner was excellent and the breakfast choices are quite surprising for a small hotel. Overall would recommend and be happy to stay again.

Booked a "Flower Show Special" direct with hotel at a very good rate and enjoyed a very pleasant stay. Met warmly by manager on arrival at 10:30am with tickets for Flower Show which were part of deal. Hotel has plenty of parking and is close to Town centre which was ideal for us. Allocated large, well equipped room in annexe. Chilled water and fresh milk in fridge was a nice touch. Restaurant and Bar areas are very nicely furnished and decorated and the 3 course dinner was excellent. Surprisingly large choice of breakfast items for a small hotel, excellently presented and cooked if a tad slowly as others have mentioned. All the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. Would definitley stay again and happy to recommend.

Really really, helpful, friendly staff. Quality Dinner and breakfasts, with good menu selection.
Great position in the town.
Room was small but really clean and functional.(Room was at back so it was quiet).
I cannot recommend the Corner House more highly. We really were happily surprised, and will return. Thank you for an enjoyable relaxing stay.

Room Tip: rooms at back quieter.

Although the room was well-equipped (fridge & ironing-table) it was a bit too small. The food was fine, but when we went to dine on the first night the service was appalling - we had to wait an hour for the first course. The waiter (who should have been embarrassed) didn't seem to take it very seriously. They did give us a free drink, after I'd asked for one. They also need to sort out what is included in the "Early-Bird" menu - although there was no mention of it on the menu, they tried to get the inevitable "£5 supplement for steak" when I enquired about it.

Nice hotel in a good location for what we paid, but don't think I'd eat there again if I stayed.

Dear DougsJane,

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

We do offer Compact Double Rooms which are more suitable for a single occupancy but do offer great value for a couple. We also offer Standard Double Rooms and Large Double Rooms which are more spacious.

Since your stay with us we have made some changes to the restaurant team and do hope that you will give us the opportunity to redeem ourselves.

I look forward to speaking to you soon.

Kind regards,

Nigel.

The hotel is overdue a refurbishment. Having booked a larger room and requested a room at the back away from the traffic we were allocated room 42 in the annexe, a smaller room is hard to imagine. Staff, helpful and friendly, re- allocated us to room 44 much larger but at the front. Paint peeling badly on the window frames and exterior wood on the annexe is rotting. With sliding interior double glazing and sash windows only a quarter of the window opened to the air on two of the hottest days of the year. We slept with a fan going all night which helped to neutralise the traffic sound.
Bathroom ok and towels good. Bed good size, two joined singles. Only a small hanging space and no drawers only shelves.
Food good but service very slow. Fortunately we were in no hurry.
Wifi unsecured.
Told Dominic the manager this on departure.
Would not stay here again until it is refurbished.

Dear David L,

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

Since your stay with us we have reallocated Room 42 to a Standard Double whereas previously it was a Large Double Room due to having a king size bed.

We do have an ongoing refurbishment programme and are just about to launch our second phase further to recently completing our new Concept Bedroom.

We do hope that you will give us the opportunity to redeem ourselves and I look forward to showing you our new Concept Bedroom.

I look forward to speaking to you soon.

Kind regards,

Nigel.

Small but functional room, fridge in room with complimentary bottle of water - a nice touch.
Quaint hotel with lots of rooms nestled in a warren of corridors with lots of little staircases up and down. A little Alice in Wonderland-ish!
Free parking at the rear.
Lots of restaurants and bars in Taunton to choose from, hotel bar lovely but a little on the expensive side. We chose to dine out but had a fabulous breakfast the next morning, a varied breakfast menu, not just the usual.
Would recommend it!

This was a nice hotel. We stayed here one night and it was very pleasant. It's only a short walk to the centre where there a few different places to way and of course the shops. Staff were very helpful. We didn't have any meals here so can't comment in then but the menu looked nice.
