I reviewed the restaurant at the Kildare Lodge last year. As local residents, my wife and I eat here, especially when we want to treat visitors to a special meal out. Please read my previous review for my detailed opinion - just to say this time that this time, we took our best friends, staying with us for a few...

This is truely an amazing place to stay both the location to the town it's quietness, Sarah and Harvey (the owners) are kind,considerate and friendly,nothing is too much trouble. The food is out of this world and the portions are very generous, each meal is prepared fresh upon order and takes a while but it's definately worth the wait. The...

Whilst I appreciate the cold snap could not be foretold (at least not by hoteliers!) radiator problems could. Even if they couldn't say when the room was booked, the barely tepid radiator in the room should have been mentioned when I arrived. Indeed if it had been mentioned I would have overlooked the uncomfortable chill and given a better rating....

You get a very warm & attentive welcome. A Grade 2 listed building in Arts & Crafts style which obviously limits what can be done with decor etc.. Food excellent with generous portions.I cannot think of anything else to say to satisfy the minimum 200 characters required!!

This hotel is not listed under restaurants on TripAdvisor which is why I've reviewed it as a hotel. I live locally and my wife and I choose to eat out at the Kildare Lodge, both on our own and especially when we have family or friends staying with us. I will also sometimes call in with my dog of an...

This is a perfect antidote to the all too common chintzy B&B’s you find in Minehead! The building is over 100 years old and you get a sense of staying in somewhere with a bit of history with lovely wooden doors and big four poster beds. There is a bar and restaurant in the hotel but despite there being a...

We only stayed 1 night as a quick getaway from London, and it was totally worth it! We had a really nice dinner at the bar, which is actually spectacular: The whole building got an amazing atmosphere and is really clean and well look after. The room was also spotless with an amazing fourposter bed. We had a beautiful view...

I haven't stayed here as I live not far away but I can highly recommend the food and friendliness of the Kildare. There is a huge choice of meals and the service has been great whether I've been with 4 or 20 people, always served on hot plates, all at the same time no matter how big the party. The...
