“One night stay”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Easy enough to find ,sat nav took us almost there and quick phone call completed the journey.
Ian was there to open door and was friendly enough but didn't meet his wife / partner at all.
Ground floor room was clean and tidy with a rather nice small en suite.
View from window was obstructed by wrought iron on the outside which was obviously for security but made me feel a little uneasy as although it prevents people getting in, it also stops us getting out. I wonder how I would get out if there were a fire in the hall?
Also although it was quiet enough the night we stayed but we were woken on Monday morning by traffic on the road outside. That said we slept well enough and the bed was comfortable.
On arrival at the breakfast room no one was about but Owner was there within a few seconds and said he saw us on the CCTV camera in the hall which made me feel uncomfortable. The food was excellent very hot and generous portions.
Location was good as it was only a short walk to town centre and restaurants
We were rushed out the door a little early so that the tiler could get on with tiling the porch.
Still did not even see the other half of the team but I'm sure she saw us cutesy of CCTV.
Overall good enough for overnight business stay but personally I would not return.

Room Tip: A first floor room at the back may be better.

Warm hospitality, friendly host, comfortable clean room and excellent breakfast. Scrambled eggs cooked to perfection. Free Wi Fi, easily accessed, a bonus. Would definitely recommend. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Would recommend the larger room. Although we overlooked a main road there was no road noise.

Yet another memorable stay at an immaculate guest house. Charming hosts, superbly cooked breakfast, comfortable bed, what more is there to say except to add 'we will be back. Jill and Ian should take part in Four in a Bed - they would walk it!

We were away for a short break and chose to come to Taunton I chose this B&B based on reviews and we were not disappointed. The accommodation was good, easy walking distance to the centre of town, and Jill and Ian were extremely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Roadside rooms are a little noisy

My stay was comfortable and I was made most welcome. Standards are superb. It was spotlessly clean and everything in amazing condition. Breakfast was first class as was the service. I cannot recommend highly enough.

This B and B is exceptionally clean and well decorated. The owners were welcoming and looked after us well. Breakfast was always piping hot and very tasty. The shops and restaurants of Taunton are in easy walking distance. This is a lovely place to chill out in after a busy day.

Room Tip: Ask the owner for advice about room choice.
