We stopped overnight here en route to Sussex from Cornwall as an end-of-holiday treat, and first impressions were very good. Our room was (Chedzoy) was small but comfortable, though the tiled bathroom floor would have benefited from a deep clean. (We raised this with the hotel and were given a discount.) And the tea and coffee making facilities were in...

We stayed for 2 nights (Mon-Wed) for my husbands 40th birthday, as we needed to be close to Taunton. The hotel looked beautiful from the outside, and has wonderful views across the countryside. We arrived at 2.30pm and I had pre-booked afternoon tea for us. We were shown to the lounge and enjoyed the tea beside the fire. The ambience...

For a Monday in February this hotel was doing a good lunch trade. Why? Because it is extremely good food beautifully cooked and presented and if you eat from the lunch menu it is extremely good value. Great location, competant and smiley staff and elegant surroundings. Need to back for dinner now!

My husband and I purchased the spa session and lunch via Groupon. We loved the massage treatment, very professional. The lunch was also excellent and the staff attentive. However, the hour spa experience was somewhat let down by the fact that there was no hot water which, alongside the hydrotherapy pool also being out of order, meant this experience was...

I purchased an afternoon tea voucher as a gift for my husband. On arrival the hotel is set in lovely grounds and is decorated beautifully. We were shown into a delightful room which I assume was a lounge. It was very peaceful and we had a table right next to the window. Shortly after a waiter told us that a...

Stayed here with friends for a Birthday which coincided with their Eden offer at £189 DB&B + winter pimms. Excellent value particularly when we discovered the high quality of the rooms/service/cuisine/location etc. The menu de jour with its canapés and amuse bouche certainly justified its 3 rosettes and was close to a Michelin star. Portion sizes were just adequate, but...
