“GREAT STAY, GREAT OWNERS!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Had an awesome stay at Somerton House last week. Owners Ursula and Brian were the perfect hosts. Lovely sea views and breakfast to die for! Nothing was too much trouble. A huge thank you! Love D and Family x

Stayed for one night with husband and 19 month old son for a break and were met with a warm friendly welcome by Ursula and Brian who made us feel completely at home. The room was perfect, clean and immaculately kept. The bed was so comfy and the bathroom was just as clean and immaculate. Both Ursula and Brian couldn't do enough to help us. The breakfast was gorgeous definitely the best full english we've had in a long time. Would recommend anyone to stay at the Somerton over anywhere else. 5 stars all round. Louise, Scott and Lucas.

I was given such a warm welcome, even a tour of the lovely house they are so proud off! The location was perfect & the room was so quaint, small yes but cosy & warm. (I was on my own & the rate was great!) I woke up to warm sunshine & a sea view... Perfect! Breakfast was top notch too! Keep up the great work & Good Luck! Anthony :-)

Thank you very much for your very kind review, we appreciate our single room are on the quant site, as we are a Grade 2 listed building we still retain a number of period feature i.e. fire place, but the well appointed luxurious private bathroom do make our single room a little special.
Thank you once again hope to see you again soon

I can recommend this guest house with all confidence that the next potential guest to Somerton House will feel grateful for the review. The couple that run the business are very welcoming and accommodating whilst giving you enough privacy at the same time. The rooms are comfortably decorated and spotlessly clean. At night I heard not a sound from neighbouring guests nor people outside which is a big plus for me. The bathrooms look very new and again are spotlessly maintained. The breakfast would fill a tank there's that much of it and every bit is cooked to the highest standard. The first impression you get from the owners is that of pride in their guest house and they certainly make you feel that way whilst staying there. I have every confidence that this will be hugely popular with visitors in the future through sheer word of mouth recommendations such is the quality in the way the establishment is run.

Let me just start by saying, I really didn't want to give this five stars....as everyone will come here and we'd like it to stay a secret! We were welcomed by Ursula like old friends. Being a particularly fussy traveller, I was very impressed with our room which looked out onto the beach. Recently refurbished, comfortable and spotlessly clean, with more extras than you find at most hotels. We had a bit of an unfortunate incident almost as soon as we arrived (nothing to do with the accommodation I might add), and Ursula was so helpful to all of us in our hour of need, we couldn't thank her enough. The breakfast was lovely...filled us all up for the whole day. If you are looking for somewhere in the area and want a friendly, clean stay, then Somerton House should be at the top of your list.....if we are in the area again, it will be at the top of ours!
