“Always stay here when on Business in Yeovil”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

The is a great little find I discovered by mistake last year

I now always make a beeline for this hotel when in Yeovil.
The rooms are superbly decorated and the beds are massive and comfortable (useful when you are 6'5")

Breakfast is more than plentifully and is a massive selection of cereals, breads, meats, cheeses etc -or you can go for the FULL English and I mean full.

The only downside and it is a very small one is there is no dining in the evening but then pub opposite (Globe and Crown) is pleasant and does great food or less than 2 mins walk away you are in the centre of town and have a wide choice of restaurants to choose from (recommend the Signature Viceroy)

Will be back here again soon

:-)

We stayed here during the very hot weather 23-27 July. The hotel is quoted as being soundproofed but as the heat was so intense we had to have the windows open to get air in. Unfortunately the hotel is on a main road, opposite a pub and next to the delivery yards for the high street shops - the noise level became unbearable at night. Alongside the room was the alleyway between the pub and the high street.
The room was excellent with a large comfortable bed, a settee and power shower. The staff were excellent and very helpful and provided a large fan to cool the room somewhat.
An excellent continental breakfast was included in the price.
If you can stand a noisy environment, or stay there when the weather is cooler/cold then The Keep is a good accommodation, but we will not use it again.

The best bits are the really helpful staff and the comfortable beds in large bedrooms which have good shower rooms. Staff found window spray and cloths without asking, when my husband asked for water for car washers as we'd run out and the windscreen needed a clean. I wasn't keen on bathroom soaps, shower gels etc which were all in wall mounted containers. Quality was lovely but it felt like being in a local sports centre. Sadly it was a hot day and although we had a fan we had an awful nights sleep in what was a sauna. Being opposite a pub didn't help as there was the occasional noise from people coming and going. Limited car parking so get there early! Breakfast was very nice and the continental style was all we needed. Amazing cheese board.....

Boutique hotel with excellent sized rooms, comfortable beds and excellent breakfast. Staff welcoming and efficient - would definitely stay again if we are in the area. Breakfast is a very good continental "serve yourself" with the option of a cooked breakfast for a small extra charge.

Room Tip: We had a room on the road, but it was fine and with the windows closed no problem.

We loved staying at the keep. The location was great, central to Yeovil. The help yourself breakfast was great. The hotel was clean and presented.

Perhaps the best feature was that we lost our key on our second night. Arriving back at 12am we assumed this might be a problem. Not at all, the owner was more than willing to come over and let us back into the our room assuring us it was no trouble at all.

We recently stayed on two separate occasions. The owners, staff and service were all friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was good, choice of fresh fruit, cereals, cheese, cold meats, etc. As we booked late, we ended up staying in three different rooms, all clean and well appointed with powerful showers. Two of the rooms had a bath in the bedroom, which some people enjoy. We liked the rooms with a microwave oven and fridge, allowing a simple supper in the evenings. Parking was tight, but we always found a space.
The major downside was the noise from the street; delivery lorries starting soon after 5am, each morning. Rooms off the street, at the back, are quieter!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road are quieter.
