“Would definitely recommend!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

I stayed for 2 nights and was extremely impressed with this small hotel that is close to Taunton City Centre. The owners Cherida and Nick could not do enough and were both knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent. My room although a little traditional was comfortable and clean. The bathroom and shower was new and first class! I liked the Meryan House Hotel as it was set in an idyllic, quiet village and provided an affordable, comfortable place to stay and relax. I woud definitely return.

Good:
Location
Ample parking
Pretty village
Welcome from owner's husband Nick who we had a great conversation with!
Clean room and bathroom
Few wifi

Could be better;
Cooked breakfast choice
Too many nick naks make it feel claustrophobic and I am sure are a chore to dust!
Price: £85 b&b sat night. A little steep for what you get

Not good;
Skeleton of a baby mouse in a jar on display in breakfast room!
The amount of tiny dead flies on bedroom window ledge

We are very surprised with your comments, not sure what one gets for £75.OO for two people take away 20% for tax brings it down to £65.00, there is enough breakfast choice for most business men in the mornings, and we have never had any complaints from any of them, or their wives.

As for the flies, I actually cleaned your room myself, and there was nothing on the window ledge, however, as the temperature was in the 90s and all the hotel windows were open, we cannot control; the wild life, as for the mouse in the box, the box is sealed and the, local museum reckons it had been in the wall for 400 years, it was found when we opened the fire places up and most customers are intrigued but the find, as for the collection of paintings and art works these are what my husband collected during his 40 years travelling we are sorry they are not in line with your views, or thoughts on art, everything is relative they say!!!!
And finally the sum of £85.00 you may have paid, commission goes to the booking agents = VAT
We are sorry you were not happy with your stay and rather surprised you said nothing on departure!!!!!!!

We had three days for a family meeting. Excellent service, friendly personell, charming room, free wi-fi, easy parking, breakfast with everything. Enjoyed this little hotel, Taunton as well, also the very "Old Inn" across. - As a dog-friend I met two Dandy-Dinmonds as staff. We will come back.

Room Tip: We had onest remmendations from owner.

Very comfortable bed and bedroom with nice bathroom. Friendly staff, clean, free wi-fi, good breakfast and excellent dinner. Pleasant pub across the road (the Old Inn). Bishops Hull is a quiet location away from the traffic clogged town of Taunton.

We went to this hotel for food and drinks following a family funeral.
The service we received was warm and attentive with waiting staff bringing around quality nibbles and sandwiches the whole time. There were even scones with clotted cream!!

Many thanks for your kind words, we are in shock at a very nasty review, and don't recognize the hotel they are talking about, we will pass your kindness onto the staff.

My wife and I have just stayed for two nights at the Meryan House Hotel. What a gem! Cherry Clark is a very 'hands on' owner and nothing was too much trouble. The room was cosy and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was superb and the standard of food was high class, with much baking being done on the premises. The lounge has a juke box and the hotel has interesting memorabilia. It has a large garden which is laden with plants and pleasant seating areas. The hotel is within walking distance of Taunton town centre and we hope to return in October.
