“overnight stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

we booked 2 rooms for a Friday night, with a dog. Comfortable rooms, reasonably clean although some bits of rubbish left lying around in room. Good TV in triple room, tea and coffee sparse but enough (not enough tea bags). Double room clean TV didn't work no tea at all. On the whole good budget hotel staff very friendly good nights sleep. Continental breakfast included this was well received by our party of 5 good start to day. Would stay again.

Room Tip: don't expect to much, some rooms better than others quieter rooms further from public area seem...

Cleanliness very poor, bedroom smelt of smoke, access to car park (via fire escape) littered with cigarette ends, cans and other litter. Breakfast poorly organised. disappointed as with a bit of thought and effort it could be a useful place to stay. Glad to get out of it.

Stayed here after a wedding for one night for the first and last time. Because of the scheduled live music night (until 1.30 am) the pleasant girl who booked us in had thoughtfully changed our room from no. 1 - directly above the bar, to no. 4 - directly above the rear courtyard/pub entrance. How in God's name they can expect paying guests to put up with that volume of noise is beyond me! Luckily we were both so tired we slept through the noise from the courtyard, I doubt if the guests at the front of the hotel bothered trying. Our double room was 'adequate' for sleeping but the pillows & duvets left something to be desired, the ensuite had no loo roll holder on the wall, with grotty grouting round the shower and as mentioned before, the room was hot with seagulls waking us at 5am. Poorly stocked breakfast station meant that all guests needed to ask for more coffee, juice, even glasses and tables weren't cleared by the one member of staff in the dining room until all guests had finished and left. A bit of a welcoming service would have made all the difference. One good thing, the cooked breakfast at additional cost of 2.50 wasn't bad. Car parking in a tiny courtyard bad, no one's fault there but the courtyard itself and the metal stairs leading up to our landing was filthy with bits of tat and hundreds of cigarette butts everywhere. My other half drives for a living and didn't rate this place too badly in comparison to some he's stayed in but in my book, the 2 stars I've given this review are purely for the nice girl who checked us in.

Room Tip: Check ahead for Live music night!

Stayed for two nights in June as this hotel was the cheapest available and near to relatives that we were visiting. Car park is tiny and a bit difficult to find but we managed to park ok. Car park is also locked at night so no worries about security. We arrived early but were made very welcome and we were happy to sit in the bar and enjoy a drink after our long journey while we waited for our room. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We stayed over a weekend and the bar had live music on the Saturday which was great! Yes, there was some noise but this can be expected with a town centre pub and was certainly not enough to keep us from enjoying our stay. Food and drink were good, rooms were clean and beds comfy. A good budget friendly hotel, don't expect the Ritz if you are paying such cheap prices! Overall, an excellent stay and we will definitely stay here again.

This is cheap and cheerful but would use this hotel again.
It is not the Savoy but great value for money and I had a good stay.
Staff were attentive and efficient, the room was more than adequate with a lovely big bath, lashings of hot water and had everything I needed for my stay.
It is in the town centre of Yeovil and a public house so you have to expect some noise but mostly it was from the seagulls!
Price was amazing considering the other local hotels ask a lot more and the customer service was excellent.
