The warm welcome.
Liked the feel of the property. The staff very friendly and very helpful. The breakfast lovely and the breakfast room had a lovely setting.
Didnt like the sqeaky bed. Had to move it off a moving piece of floorboard. The bed frame was not secured properly.
Old property full of nooks and crannies. Bathroom modern and clean. Lots of toiletries available. Bed comfortable but slightly lopsided. Breakfast good.
No lift so had to lug heavy suitcase up 2 flights of stairs.
The welcome was excellent and all the staff were very helpful . Its a nice place to chill ,the room we stade in had a new bathroom and was very comfortable . Good value for money. Great breakfast.
We loved the unique quaintness of the house and the food was of an exceptionally high standard. The home baked bread served with breakfast and their own home made marmalade was a delight, so yummy I wished I could have brought lots home with me. Definitely worth a stop over if you are visiting Shepton Mallet or surrounding areas!
we really liked the house and our room and the breakfast was excellent
we found the staff unhelpful...for example when we asked where there was to eat within walking distance we were told nowhere and that we should go to wells. We didnt want to drive so it would have been nice for them to suggest ordering us a taxi or taken any sort of interest in making our stay better instead of making unhelpful jokes
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.
Lovely Hosts Great room ,very comfortable bed Good quality complimentary drinks. Really fantastic Building,sleeping in History!
Very small breakfast,no cereal,fruit. Noisy road outside at times.
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
