Staff were very friendly, helpful. Mu husband and I had a glass of wine in the lounge and had conversations with the proprietor. The hotel itself is very lovely. English breakfasts were great. The hotel was exactly what we were looking for...charming, full of character and history, with wonderful staff.
Personally, I don't have anything that I did not like. However, I am a person who likes traditional English B&Bs. The hotel is in an older country home so it is not modern. There is no elevator and no air conditioning. We knew that when we made the reservation so that was no problem for us...it just adds to the charm of the establishment. If you are looking for modern conveniences, this is probably not the place for you.
We have some experience of West of England country hotels and this was the best. We needed a good base in the area and were made very welcome and felt entirely at home. Everything was spot on. The staff were flawlessly helpful, even when we hit them with some complex check-out arrangements on the last morning. Food and service were extremely good, unlikely to be beaten in the area (we tried a couple of others nearby). It is also very convenient for our business in the area so we will definitely be back!
We found the owners to be friendly and approachable. The accomodation excellent and food in the restaurant to be of a high standard.
What a great place. The people are lovely, very caring and very happy to oblige. For a 280+ year old place it's comfortable, pleasant and clean, just watch out for those floorboards, their a little squeaky! A great place to stay and eat. We'll be back.
Splendid breakfast and nice sitting room, stylish environment.
Very steep stairs up to the top floor where we stayed.
The lounge The food
Very helpful with the booking mix up through booking.com, nothing was too much. Quiet location but not too far from towns/shops.
Parking was not as easy as described
The owners interaction with all 4 of the party. The food was excellent with the portions being well sized.
Bed linen soft pillows and cosy room. Delicious breakfast all locally sourced. Hot shower internet and flat screen TV.
The proprietor and his staff were very welcoming and attentive. The freshly cooked breakfast was delicious - including home-made bread and marmalade. The location was convenient for the Bath and West Showground.
It is not possible to check in after 2300 hours.
Beautiful old building room very clean good bath room
Not enough staff to handle number of guests breakfast just ok
We liked the location for exploring; the condition of the house was what we expected for a house of that age; the staff where really nice and courteous: the food was good and the value for money.
Apart from a couple of creaking floor boards absolutely nothing.

Atmosphere, accommodation, comfort
Friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Good location close to local attractions. Beautiful surroundings.
Not enough parking but it wasn't an issue as could park locally for free no problem.
Almost everything: beautiful old house with lovely furniture; packed with character. Comfortable, well appointed room and bathroom. Peaceful walled garden for sitting in. Excellent breakfasts. Above all very helpful and welcoming owners, who really went out of their way to advise and help. First-rate hosts.
There is a step on the landing, which is difficult to see and I fell over it. It needs to be marked somehow, so that others do not trip.
character of the building was fab
cant think of a thing we didnt like
Hosts Beautiful property Yummy food Comfy room
Lovely hotel with well equipped rooms, friendly owners, nice gardens and a lovely breakfast complimented with homemade bread and marmalade.
Staff Clean Comfortable Food
Beautiful property. Very welcoming- proprietor made excellent recommendation of church to visit in Wells. Excellent breakfast in a beautiful dining room with background of a lovely garden
Charming owners who went out of their way to look after us and to make us feel at home. The restaurant took special diets in their stride and produced the most delicious breakfast-nothing was too much trouble. Am looking for a good excuse to go back again soon.
Friendly, warm hosts
