We also stayed in room 10 on the 24th of February but did not get bitten. Fire escape through the toilet not really a problem as it is only for use in an emergency so make sure there is not a fire before you retire to the toilet. We booked through Hotels.com and we were told we had a free meal but this was denied by the manager despite an email with FREE DINNER clearly printed on it so things did not start well. On our first night we avoided the bar full of Glastonbury' s finest and had dinner in GiGi's a restaurant trapped in the 1970's with a Christmas tree still present. Quite a good meal really but expected to see Gene Hunt at any minute . The second night we ate in the hotel. The meal was alright but nothing exceptional and quite expensive for what it was. The breakfast was very nice but during the week only served from 8 to 9 so don't have a long lie. Also you need to put money in the meter at the car park at the back from 8.30. The room sans bed bugs was warm and there was plenty of hot water. Also free WiFi which would not work with my Blackberry unfortunately.Staff were always very nice but yes the manager was clothed in a somewhat casual attire but then you should have seen what some of the guests were wearing. Glastonbury is alright if you want to buy things on magic, alternative medicine daggers made out of crystal otherewise head up the road to Bath for the day. But overall it was adequate but no more than that

Spent a weekend at this hotel, downstairs - great bar, good food, smashing atmosphere. However upstairs was different. Room 10 we stayed in did have the fire escape passage running between the bedroom & bathroom - odd?
The bed was comfortable but my wife woke up in the morning covered with bites. We presume it was the 'bed bugs' mentioned by a previous reviewer.
Breakfast was good but we were served by the manager who was casually dressed which again felt a little 'odd'.
As previous reviewers have mentioned it seemed that guest's were an inconvenience to the staff as no one offered to show us the room or gave us any information. Overall a good experience but this hotel could do so much better.

Room Tip: Avoid room 10

Love the building, gorgeous rooms, warm and quiet. Stayed in Henry viii room, excellent value. Now under new managers who really suit the atmosphere, are keen to be of service, and the other staff brilliant too. Would always recommend this hotel to anyone spending a night in Glastonbury.

Room Tip: Four posters good value

We stayed at this hotel for our Wedding Anniversary. Booked a four poster room but when we got there this hadnt been booked properly - luckily they managed to get us into one of the other four poster rooms, which was just as nice. Very old and quirky place, but very clean and the staff were very helpful.

The hotel was right on the main high street so easy walking distance to all the shops and attractions.

We had our evening meal here too which was very nice, although a little expensive, but the atmosphere was great as we were there whilst Winter Solstice was going on so everyone was dressed up.

Breakfast was absolutely beautiful, well cooked and a lovely choice.

All in all a lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for the four-poster rooms

Lovely building in a great location. The room was comfortable, warm and very clean. The room was very good value and it was an ideal spot for a weekend break. We didn't eat in the hotel, but did go for a few drinks in the bar, which had a good atmosphere and seemed to be full of local characters. The breakfast was good. Unfortunately, the service, although polite, is virtually non-existent. The reception is not just unmanned, it is never actually open. You have to ask in the bar for your room key, and there is no-one to drop it off with in the morning. We had to ask the girl who was serving breakfasts to help. Basically you end up feeling like the guests are a bit of a hindrance to the smooth running of the hotel.
