Stayed for 2 nights in the stables - very quiet. In room 52, we couldn't even hear the sound of cars.
The welcome was good. The receptionist was very nice and helpful.
The room was fine, with a very soft bed. Not ideal if you've got back trouble but it was fine for us.
The shower was good and the towels were thick, soft and changed daily.
Clothes storage was fine if you're staying for a few days.
Breakfast was very good and the evening meals were good value. Not the best food, but for the price we couldn't complain.
A big plus for me was real ale at the hotel bar. A rarity in hotels.
The bad points - the service at meal times could be better and I don't like to see waitresses chewing gum while they're working.
All in all, everything was good, but not great, hence the 4 out of 5.
I wouldn't go out of my way to stay here, simply because Yeovil is a place to visit just the once, but if you need to stay in Yeovil, this is the place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Refurbished three years ago The Manor is located in the Somerset town of Yeovil with easy access via the A303. An Ideal base if visiting Yeovilton, Sherborne. Built in 1735 by local glover and merchant banker John Daniel, the house was known as Hendford House. After he passed away the house was rented out until 1927 when it became The Manor Hotel. A manor it may not be, but it is certainly elegant enough to be one. Its classical facade and porch are of warm, mellow stone, and to its long single wing, also of stone. It has a cheerful modern bar with scrubbed floorboards and pale beechwood furniture and fittings. Today the hotel is a firm favourite with locals and travellers alike. You will be assured of a very warm welcome and great hospitality. Yeovil is the ideal spot from which to explore Hardy's Wessex. Nearby attractions include Glastonbury Abbey. ... more less
