“Watchet..Music Festival 2013”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Myself and my partner recently had a lovely three night stay at the Mariner's Guest House..Its was meant to be a treat to make-up for a terrible music festival we went too earlier in Aug..Which was ruined by hundreds of drunk teenagers causing chaos on the campsite. I promised no camping this time and a nice family friendly festival free from idiots ..We stayed over the Bank holiday weekend arriving late due to terrible traffic..We were put in the Commanders Suit..No sea-view but was able to keep an eye on my crew van which was good as its my pride and joy.. I'd got us tickets for Watchet Live..And we just had the best time ever!..Janet our host was lovely and always at hand to help,us she even found a safety pin to secure my partners tail onto her costume..So as good as my word I writing a review..Our room was clean comfy and well presented..Also loved the books and games and all the interesting background information on the local area and all its history..Also there were lots of leaflets on things to do.. I was only expecting a continental breakfast as I'd looked at the previous land lady's web site only.. So was a fab surprise being offered a full English each day and cooked to perfection.. Was Yum...I would highly recommend a stay here if you like the personal touch always felt welcome and at home....Well done and thanks again for a lovely stay and a even better festival guys..

We have just spent three lovely nights at The Mariner and cannot praise it highly enough! It's quite the best b & b we've stayed in. The decor and size of our room (we stayed in the Captains Quarters) were excellent. And the en-suite itself was bigger than some rooms we've stayed in in the past! We cannot fault the attention to detail and the friendliness of the staff. The website states only continental breakfast was available, but we were offered a full English breakfast too. There was plenty of fresh fruit salad and yoghurts to go with the cereals, toast, croissants and pan au chocolat, not to mention the endless possibilities of how you want your eggs cooked! Tea or coffee and fruit juice completed the breakfast menu. What more could anyone ask for? The sea wall opposite the b & b was the only down side but you could see over it to the Welsh coast, and the binoculars provided were very useful. Watchet itself is charming and not over commercialised. There is a local steam railway that runs from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard, stopping at Watchet to pick up passengers. This is a trip worth going on for those who are in a nostalgic frame of mind or for others to experience travel as it used to be, and is a great way to view the countryside.

We have just returned from a lovely weekend at The Mariner Guest House. Our room, The Master's Cabin was nicely decorated and very clean. The staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome and comfortable. Free parking at the rear of the property makes this a great little place to stay. Watchet Harbour has everything you need with plenty of places to eat and drink. We will definitely be re-booking this gem of a place.

We stayed in the Admirals Room at the front of the B&B, a lovely room with ensuite shower room. The whole place is very clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a great breakfast with cereals, fruit salad,yoghurt as well as full English available. I can't fault the guest house at all... Except, the room is advertised as having stunning sea views. I suppose you can actually see the sea but is spoilt by building work on a huge sea wall. See photo
So I'd recommend the Mariner , just don't expect "stunning sea views"

This was our first time at The Mariner B&B and we were very happy with it. The Admirals suite was very comfortable and spacious as was the bathroom with two sinks and large shower.
The continental breakfast was really good, trying Gena's homemade jams, yogurt's and mini rolls were delicious.
Gena and Chris have made a warm, cosy and inviting B&B, we will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Admirals Suite has a telescope and binoculars, very useful for looking over toward Wales

We've stayed in the Mariner 3 times now and love it. The rooms are really comfortable and clean. Both rooms we've stayed in have had lovely bathrooms with big showers. The owners are really friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts are lovely and make a change from the usual full English - waking up to the smell of the croissants and muffins baking is wonderful. A really lovely place - well worth a try. We'll be back again.

We have stayed here twice now while i was working in Taunton. Once in 2010 and again in April this year. Both times we have been very impressed with everything about this b&b. We stayed in the Admirals suite which is tastefully decorated and has a telescope looking out through the large window out to south wales over the Severn estuary. We really liked this feature. By far the best thing about this place is the continental breakfast. Fresh home baked croissants, pastries and bread with the hosts home made jams and fresh fruit, Lovely! I will always come back to this place when in the area.

Room Tip: Admirals suite is the best room with a large bathroom, great showers and 2 sinks
