Independently owned character hotel ideal for both business and leisure travellers. Within walking distance of the centre of Somerset's County town Taunton, this 45 bedroom hotel has been transformed to meet the demands of the modern day traveller. Late 2015 the complete refurbishment of the bar & restaurant has created a relaxed drinking and dining venue. Ideal for business or pleasure. Emphasis has been placed on developing a simple yet stylish and comfortable sleeping experience. All rooms have linen duvets, ample work space, refrigerators with complimentary bottled water and fresh milk, flat screen televisions and sparkling en-suite facilities. Free Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel. A flexible combination of meeting and eating rooms and excellent road and rail connections make the Corner House a convenient location for day and residential meetings. The hotel has on site car parking and is in an ideal location for visiting many of the nearby Somerset attractions or as a stopover en-route to or from the Cornish peninsula.

We stayed for a night just before Christmas and the owner was happy to offer us a very advantageous rate for bed and breakfast. We had a large and comfortable quiet room as requested, and breakfast the next morning was excellent. I know the parking fee is an issue for some

Staff and main part of the hotel was quite nice. However my room was quite smelly and smelt like someone had kept a wet dog in there. Bit mouldy in the shower as well but aside from that a nice stay. Was in room 48 which is the room outside the hotel right next to the car park

To avoid disappointment please contact the hotel direct to check the availability of these rooms before you book your stay. (There is a £10 charge per dog, per night)

"My only tip is to ask for room 48 if you have a four legged friend."
"Some rooms are very small so check the size of your allocated room."
"Avoid the compact rooms unless you are on your own"
"if you don't want traffic noise ask for a back room."
"stay somewhere else"
US$68 - US$133 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
