Large traditional Hotel set in delightful grounds just outside Taunton. Friendly and helpful staff, but a bit dated which obviously some people enjoy. The rooms were bright and of a comfortable size with plenty of amenities. The Spa is a big attraction here.

A really lovely location and a great set of staff, who were attentive but thinly spread at times, meaning long waits at times for food / drink service. Food was lovely however. Bar prices perhaps pretty steep at nearly £10 for a double G&T. Our room was great - Donyatt Suite. Fabulous shower too. All very clean. Bed was super...

We had the most disappointing Christmas day ever. Awful communication prior to booking. Staff were friendly but service was diabolical. Not asked once throughout if we were happy with food. Over a period of 3 hours we were not asked whether we wanted any more drinks. No one to take our coats on arrival. Food just ok. Everything plated up,...

From the initial conversation with Charley (Events Co-ordinator) we were made to feel very special and comfortable that our Wedding Reception was in very good hands. We had originally booked another venue and were unhappy with their perceived service and so found the Mount with less than 3 months to go. Charley guided us on what was needed, and supported...

This hotel, which is in very pleasant surroundings, provides great service and is a wonderful venue for a wedding. The food is very good and the drinks are a bit expensive. We did not stay in the hotel, so cannot comment further.
