Visited this hotel on a Business trip for a couple of nights, the rooms were spacious, bed very comfy and meals were tasty. Handy how food was served both in the bar and restaurant.

Would recommend the stay to anyone.

We had this break on an Amazon deal and it was very good value. The hotel is well situated just off an estate which didn't intrude. We arrived a little early (always a test) and were welcomed and shown our room. The room, whilst a little small, was sufficient for our needs and was clean, well decorated and supplied with everything one now expects from a hotel. We chose to take dinner in the well appointed restaurant and for me this turned out to be a disappointment. Given previous comments, perhaps the chef had an off day. Vegetables need to have "bite" but I had to send mine back, the carrots being plain undercooked. I expected these would be popped in the microwave, but to give credit where due, different vegetables were provided. The young staff were well trained and pleasant.

I booked 3 nights b&b via a website deal for a really great price, but even though we had a cheap deal it was fantastic value for money. Our room was a lovely size, very clean and comfy. There was a very good choice for breakfast, fresh fruit, cereal, full cooked, kippers or scrambled eggs. I had the scrambled eggs on toast and they were the best eggs I've been served in a hotel for years! We enjoyed a dinner there one evening and I was really impressed by the choice and local produce sourced. The staff were friendly and helpful and always smiling, lovely hotel in a great location.

Booked this as an Amazon weekend special self and wife 2 nights Sat & Sun for £89 inc breakfast as were exploring Jurassic Coast. Hotel is tucked away with lots of parking just outside Chard centre and is an older building with considerable charm. The room was clean smart and just big enough as we spent little time in there. Staff were warm and friendly. Ate both nights at hotel the food was very good ,not overpriced and the 15% amazon discount off the food bill is a nice bonus. Wines and the bar were also very reasonable price wise. Breakfasts were also very good food freshly cooked and plenty of cereals fruit etc also. Hotel nicely situated at one end of the coast and a good base for exploration. Very difficult to find any faults maybe no Sky Tv and a slight rumbling of a generator type machine early in the morning outside the room were the only small points to raise. Would recommend for sure.

We had our wedding reception here & stayed the night too.
The 4 poster room was spacious & very clean with a full sized bath in.
The food was fantastic as always, the staff were professional & nothing was too much trouble overall a fantastic weekend.

This was a special deal for a weekend away. When we arrived we had to phone from the desk to get someone to check us in. It was prompt though. We were given our key and the room was very nice. What stood out most of all was how clean and dust free everywhere was. The decor is dated but so so clean. We had rooms over the kitchen and unfortunately this hotel does not have a good sound proof system. So you did hear the door slam for the last person to go to bed. You did hear the door slam for the first person to go to breakfast so if you are a light sleeper.... Tough.
The breakfast was either cooked or kipper fillets. You could choose scrambled or poached egg on toast etc. the cooked breakfast was awash with grease and the sausage seemed to be light brown on one edge and the rest just grey. Not nice. The kipper fillets though were lovely... But don't have the poached egg. The white was vile. The bread was seemed to be the basic supermarket loaf, but it also seemed to have sat in a warm room for 36 hours. Not nice.
If I had to put it in a few words... Come to the hotel the staff are lovely and friendly but don't eat there. Locals described it as an "old peoples home" which is right in decor but not in the way it is run. I have not come across nicer staff but maybe the chef needs a bit of education. I would come back so if you are coming to Chard please come here but be prepared to use it as "room only".

Room Tip: Not over the kitchen.
