This is an 18th Century Merchant's house which is being lovingly looked after by its owners since (2013). Lots of original features but also king sized beds and very fluffy towels. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is wonderful, fresh, local and or hand made. Gourmet restaurant 5 days a week. Big rooms high ceilings, wonderful 3 nights. Very convenient for Wells, Street, Mendips, Glastonbury and much more.

There is nothing not to like.
Bowlish House is an authentic early 18th century rich merchant's house with many period pieces. Charming. The owner is very helpful and welcoming and the breakfast is outstanding.

Standard of bedroom mainly, eg sash cord windows would not open easily and tended to fall down from position set. Could not agree with such favourable comments given in visitors' book.
Food & helpfulness/friendliness of staff. Good suggestion for alternative dinner venue when chef not available.

Fine old house, beautifully decorated and warm welcome

Being treated as a guest not a customer.

Bed a bit too soft wifi connection poor. Difficult to watch TV from bed due to positioning of TV. Would have liked a bit more on breakfast plate (eg 2 sausages,2 eggs). Original welcome a little cold although did open up some more conversation the following morning.
Central location Tasty breakfast, freshly filtered coffee. Good tray variety in room.

I visited the hotel because I was doing family history research. My great-great grandfather Moses Stone and his family live there in the mid 19th century. It was fascinating to stay in the house where he lived. The present management are restoring it beautifully with great taste, and the food is brilliant.

Lovely Staff and food. Room was as described very comfortable apart from the squeaky floorboards (but that goes with the age of the place).

Dining room, which is a conservatory, was a little cold to start with for breakfast but warmed up .
Great welcome, lovely traditional charm to the public rooms and bedrooms. Very considerate hosts. Fantastic dinner

Perhaps breakfast could have offered cereal and fruit etc before the booked breakfasts.
The house is magnificent and beautifully renovated in keeping with the era it was built. A friendly and helpful host. Large comfortable rooms. Excellent food.

Hard bed/weird pillows Treated as second class compared to large wedding party Inflexible attitude to drinks in bar - plenty of lager for other guests! Owners' large dog in restaurant! Worst cooked breakfast I have ever had - my sausages were inedible and, initially, they forgot my husband's breakfast

Lovely house with lovely rooms and would stay aging.

Nothing to dislike
November 18, 2014
The actual fabric of the building very worn, paper hanging from cieling, old damp patch visible, wood paneling poorly filled and painted .. A great shame as building is beautiful.
Staff were good

Everything from the location near Bristol and Bath to the characterful house, a lovely room with view over the garden, great bathroom facilities, and a lovely bar area and simply fantastic dining, one of the best meals we've ever had!

Warnings in brochure re smoking, lost keys, late check-out. Clear and honest, but somewhat alarming and could probably be more diplomatically expressed.
comfort, cleanliness, welcome

Didnt like the sqeaky bed. Had to move it off a moving piece of floorboard. The bed frame was not secured properly.
Liked the feel of the property. The staff very friendly and very helpful. The breakfast lovely and the breakfast room had a lovely setting.

No lift so had to lug heavy suitcase up 2 flights of stairs.
Old property full of nooks and crannies. Bathroom modern and clean. Lots of toiletries available. Bed comfortable but slightly lopsided. Breakfast good.
