“Excellent B&B - great breakfasts and friendly owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Stayed for two days in this excellent B&B. Owners very friendly and helpful - welcomed with tea and cakes in the lovely secluded courtyard garden. Breakfast superb - all kinds of cereals, fresh fruit & berries, yoghurt, croissants, jams, juices.......... and an excellent full English breakfast. Local produce used wherever possible. Building is a lovely old Grade 2 listed house - gives it great charm but some people might find room shapes/sizes/ceilings/beams etc a little awkward. I'm 6ft3in and 18 stone and it didn't bother me! I'd rather have the charm of the old building than a modern box! Spotlessly clean. Would definitely stay again if I'm in Chard.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter - the B&B fronts onto the main street in Chard

We enjoyed our 4 day stay with Andrew and Claire very much and found that we had shared common experiences. Great breakfasts with excellent local fresh fruit, and the cooked options were baked not fried giving a healthier result. They gave good advice on local attractions and because we had asked for a quiet room we had one of their smaller rooms - but it was quiet! The milk left in the room was appreciated for drinks. The assistance with our personal laundry was great and was provided gratis. Their advice on local restaurants was accurate and welcome. Parking was fre and not a problem. Andrew and Claire are thoroughly professional operators.

Room Tip: Front rooms are larger but closer to the street.

My big son and I stayed at the Ammonite Lodge in early July 2014, and being welcomed there for the first time felt like being greeted by good old friends. So we immediately decided to stay for two nights in stead of one. The rooms are adorable, the breakfast wonderful, and it was no problem to be vegetarian.
Andrew and Clare are the sweetest hosts you could ask for, and do ask them about anything - you will get great advice. We will be back!

Room Tip: Since this is a very old house, there are only stairs and the rooms are very different. So call in a...

Brilliant! Conveniently situated on main street. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Quality towels and bedding and all the toiletries you could need. Good choice of drinks and lovely biscuits! The breakfast was amazing - superb choice of cereals, fruit and lovely yogurts and the full English was so tasty (all local produce) and cooked perfectly. Andrew and Claire - the owners/ hosts were so welcoming and eager to please in every way - they couldn't have been better! Will definitely come again

What is there not to like? Beautiful house, wonderful hosts, greeted with tea, coffee and chocolate cake on arrival. Lots of personal touches in the room, comfort at its best.

Breakfast was superb!!

Great location too. Will definitely be recommending to others and will be back if in the area.

Clare and Andrew made a great impression at the time of booking and this was surpassed by their warm welcome and fantastic hospitality. The food is delicious and the facilities excellent. The enthusiasm, experience and genuine concern of the hosts is outstanding, I would recommend it whole heartedly.

We stayed at the Ammonite Lodge for 3 nights. We can both honestly say this is the best B&B/hotel we have ever stayed in. The reception from Andy and Clare was superb - we really felt welcome, and that nothing was too much trouble for them. Even the dogs and cat were lovely and well behaved! We stayed in the family room with our 3 month old daughter, and found the room comfy, spacious and well thought out. Even our daughter slept well in a very cosy travel cot. The facilities were excellent, with even a little bowl of sweets in the room for when we arrived! The bathroom was lovely and clean with a nice selection of toiletries.
The breakfast was lovely, with local ingredients and a wide selection of food. Andy and Clare were great to chat to and so helpful, suggesting places to go for the day, or places to eat in the evening. We had trouble with our van and Andy was kind enough to phone his mechanic friend to try and fit us in for the van to be fixed!
By the end of the stay, it was like we had been holidaying with friends. We were sad to leave and will most definitely be coming back. Thank you so much Andy and Clare (and sorry it's taken us so long to write the review!!)

Room Tip: Family room is just lovely
