The Green Room
Ranked #14 of 29 Yeovil B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We stayed for one night as a stop-over on the way to Devon with our 2 children. The B&B was perfect. Parking on site. All staff were friendly and helpful. The room was perfect. 2 double beds for us and the boys. Spacious, modern and clean bathroom with lovely toiletries. We opted to eat out on the way back from a daytrip but on seeing the restaurant when we got back we wished we'd eaten there instead! We sat outside in the courtyard and stayed for drinks. Breakfast was just right with a selection of juices, toast, cereal and teas and coffee as well as the option for a full english. All in all a really pleaseant stay and would highly recommend.

We've arrived late at night, so did not have an opportunity to use the bar facilities, but the room was nice and clean and breakfast very decent. It is a listed building and has a lot of character, older visitors might find stairs a bit of a challenge. It is very difficult to find your way to it, had two satnavs and still couldn't get there! I strongly suggest to ring for directions when you're close.

Room Tip: Restricted area, full of one way streets closed to general public use, make sure you know how to get...

We occupied 3 rooms for one night at this B&B. They were 2 doubles and a family room. We had struggled to get accommodation in Yeovil for the night in question and got the last 3 rooms.
We finally booked over the phone direct with the hotel, and got confirmation by return eMail. The person doing the telephone booking was helpful and friendly and understood our requirements.
The hotel has an unusual layout. The ‘front’ entrance is on Wine Street and behind that is the Bar/Restaurant. Rooms are on the upper floors forming 2 sides of a parking area. There are 2 rear entrances into the hotel – 1 signposted ‘Reception’. You access some of the rooms through a door at the rear of the Bar. It is in the centre of Yeovil and so could be subject to traffic noise. We heard late night revellers before we went to sleep and a road sweeper was an early morning irritant. We had however a window fully open!
The family room was number 8 at the top of the hotel and the second child enjoyed a mattress on the floor. The room had beams to give it character, plain walls and a pale cord carpet, dogeared in parts. It was approached up a very narrow pale carpeted staircase and the door to the room went straight off the top of the stairs which made manoeuvring luggage very difficult. The room contained a couple of bedside tables, a walk in wardrobe and a home made table/unit holding the hospitality tray and the 36 inch flat screen TV. The room was 8 m x 4 m with a small bathroom down steps. It was very warm and took some time to cool down for sleeping. The family did sleep well. The room was clean.
1 of the doubles (No 7) was equipped with a kitchenette and table – virtually a studio apartment! The room was about 6m x 2 m with a chest high divider between the room and the kitchenette. The bathroom was 2m x 1m with a tiled floor. Again the room was plainly decorated with ceiling beams. The TV was smaller – 26 inch with a freeview package of channels. There were 2 bedside tables and a vanity shelf/desk with a light box mirror over and a large wardrobe. There were some shelves and an old fashioned fireplace. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The windows were old fashioned sash windows with blinds for black-out which were effective. The carpet was plain. The room appeared clean.
Both rooms worked well. Toiletries were adequate, towels were clean, dry and ample. The hospitality tray was adequate with nice biscuits. However in the double there were some issues. I could not make the electric shaver point work. The wash hand basin was cracked and below the hot tap was a green stain, the bottom of the splash guard was filthy and on the inside it was heavily covered in mould. The shower was stained (as was one of the taps) and it was very difficult to turn on or off. It was effective and hot once it got to temperature. It sprayed onto the wooden shelving at the end of the bath which showed a great deal of water damage. The glass shelf over the wash hand basin was dirty and positioned poorly, unwary people bending over the sink might get a nasty bump!
Breakfast was the highlight of our stay, served by the proprietor and an assistant, they were positive in being helpful. A bit overly protective of the toaster!! There were cereals, yoghurt, fruit salad, delicious hot croissants and toast specially made. Jams were available. Tea and coffee.
Our rooms were £65 each for the doubles and £79.50 for the family room. Worth it.
The proprietor was a little too anxious to get our keys on departure even though we were leaving well before check-out time.
Our score (out of 10): Location 9; Car Parking 8; Accessibility 7; Reception/Check Out 8; Size of Room 8; Facilities in Room 8; Facilities 7; Hotel Decor 7; Service 7; Value for Money 8.

Great food on a Saturday evening.The two girls were superb.Exellant service attentive but not intrusive.The quality was good iserved hot and tasted divine.
Would highly recommend.However my only negative comment would be that the owner make himself a little less obvious by not discussing staff salarys and total oblivion to customers.

We travelled to Yeovil to see our new granddaughter and all the B&Bs we have stayed at in the past were booked up. We therefore decided to book a room at The Green Room - we were not at all disappointed and found the owner very helpful and accommodating. Our Room (which was room 3) was very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was nice and spacious and the shower was very powerful. We paid an additional amount for a full cooked breakfast which was superb - all quality ingredients and nicely presented. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights in room 5. The room was clean and spacious. These are only a few rooms and the building is very quaint. The staff are friendly - the only problem we encountered was when we arrived the doors were locked but a quick phone call soon sorted that out. Continental breakfast was very nice - everything freshly made.
The Green Room is very central but there is not a lot to do or see in Yeovil itself.

I went here on a Sunday for lunch as I saw a menu outside which looked tempting. I am a vegetarian and was offered polenta and salad. I love a proper roast, just minus the meat so asked if I could have this. They said I could, but looked at me like I was crazy, which annoyed me as I am entitled to a roast as much as the next person. Anyway they had no veg gravy, which I find ridiculous as it can be made in minutes with store cupboard staples. I ended up having to plump for the polenta...which on arrival was covered with parmesan cheese, which I hate! I told the waitress that she never explained the dish properly and the chef ended up making a risotto for me which was delicious but I feel the overall experience was really let down by their pack of menu knowledge and lack of help with dietry needs. Wouldn't go here again when there are many restaurants in the local area who are very accomodating to my needs.
