We stayed for 2 night at the Gascony Hotel on The Avenue in Minehead, Somerset. Due to work commitments,we couldn't get there until the early hours of the morning 27-28/7/14 and the owner went out of his way to be there or leave a key so we could get in. When we arrived he made us very welcome, even though he must have been very tired himself!
The hotel has recently been refurbished and everything is very clean EVERYWHERE! The décor is rather colourful and jazzy with many patterned wallpapers and borders, curtains, carpets etc. ......not to everyone's taste but actually quite quirky and interesting! It should last for years as it's all been very professionally applied!
We stayed in room 17 which was quite spacious and had a nice bathroom .... a bit more storage space in the bathroom would have been good .....maybe a wall cabinet or something?? It was spotlessly clean. The only down side of this particular room was the noise level from a nearby bar or club ......people were singing and shouting until about 3.00am. Not the fault of the hotel, of course but if you don't like noise, it may be a good idea to stay on the other side of the hotel.
Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and a nice hot full English breakfast if you wanted it. WE DID!! We had one evening meal which was REALLY EXCELLENT ........ lovely FRESH food and not too expensive.
The staff were very helpful and friendly ..... one girl .......Lauren, I think her name was was always smiling and went out of her way to help. She looked up a local telephone number for us and seemed to work in many places....reception, dining room etc..... a very pleasant and polite member of staff. :)
We enjoyed our stay .... the hotel is in a very convenient place too .........close to all the shops, bars, railway station, buses and seafront.
We will certainly be going back ...............THANK YOU !!
