This is a fabulous B & B. We totally enjoyed our stay. The room was beautiful and quite big. There was everything in the room, hairdryer, ironing board, mini fridge and Tea making facilities. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and the staff were superb.

We stayed as part of a large group of families travelling to Hereford for a wedding - 9 rooms in all. We received a very warm welcome from Lesley who couldn't have done more for us -arranging hair appointments for some of the higher maintenance ladies and printing boarding passes for the technologically challenged. Lauren and Meg looked after us...

We stayed here for three nights as a part of a largish group of friends, on the recommendation of one of the group. We found the hotel is relatively to find, with ample parking. We arrived rather early, but were given a hugely warm welcome. Our room was large, well-furnished, quiet and comfortable. (We particularly commend the mini-bar, and its...

Splendid hospitality and a warm, friendly welcome awaits at Somerville - despite our inordinately early arrival we were served tea on the sun terrace. Throughout our short stay Rosie & Bill went out of their way to provide every comfort and assistance. All rooms have a well-stocked minibar at very reasonable prices and a very thoughtful range of toiletries is...

I stayed there for one single night in a single room - a last minute booking, but very good price. The room although was slightly small - was very neatly kept, with all facilities that I sometimes even have not found in star rated hotels. The place has a car park and they provide a very good breakfast with plenty...

The Somerville House was recommended to us by Visit Herefordshire tourist agency and we were not disappointed.

Oops, I stayed here last year and forgot to write a review so sorry Rosie and Bill but better late than never. This lives up to its five star rating. Others have commented in the excellence if the rooms (5 and 10 seem to be the best) and the comments in the breakfast are well deserved. If in Hereford I...
