Food was ok..
Room was cold when arrived - room 9 - however once the heating came on this warmed up.. This was not the case within the on suite bathroom where the light switch actived an extractor fan - htis took all the available warmth from the bathroom which was cold to start with.
I booked to stay at The Boat and Anchor Inn on Friday 31 October 2014 & Saturday 1 November 2014. Which I was charged £198.00. I stay in Room 7, where there was no Hot Water in the Shower and the Shower was not working. Also, other people have stay at The Boat & Anchor Inn.where there was no Hot Water in the Shower and the Shower was not working. I left a note on the Reception Desk on Saturday Morning, to no avail. Therefore, I did not get what I paid for and require a fully refund. In the meantime I look forward to your reply.
The location was tranquil, yet close to Bridgwater. The Staff and Owner were very chatty and helpful. The Inn felt comfortable with a relaxed style about it. Meals were good. The Annex bedrooms were ideal. The Inn and bedrooms were clean and comfortable.
Only one slight comment, the annex door was spring loaded, to ensure it closed. If guests were leaving early, the slamming of the door woke us up.
Bed and Breakfast
From the room it overlooked the canal and fields.
Very poor Wi-Fi in room.
Both ladies were really nice and made me feel very welcome .... They couldn't do enough for me .... The fried breakfast was freshly cooked and yummy ..... Shower was lovely and hot ......
Don't use your sat nav ..... It took me to a totally different place .... Thank you to a community officer who help me
Outdoor scenery and canal is relaxing
Noisy at times with motorway and level crossing buzzer but get used to it.
Good location being just off the Motorway and clean rooms
Basic facilities but you get what you pay for. Shabby and in need of a re-furb but nothing outrageous Weak shower
On arrival the member of staff made us feel welcome. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. We were able to have a drink in the bar and make use of the lovely garden. Glad we chose to stay there.
Stopped over on my way home from Newquay with our new/old bug,great location,friendly staff,lovely food,I had the steak and a good drinks selection at the bar.Nice beer garden,motorway is a bit noisy but you do get used to it and windows in room see off most of noise,good stay
The setting on the canal is very nice.Rooms are a good size.Nice size shower.Food good.
Doors are very noisy and kept us both awake with people coming in the evening.Hard to find with a sat nav but very easy to see from the .M5.
It was too far from the town & the food was a big disappointment.
It only took four minutes to find from the m5 motorway and got us away quickly in the morning
Didn't find it value for money with an overnight stay and dinner and breakfast at £130 it's to much
Great welcome 1st experience of the ever helpful Sue showed us our first Guinness surge thank you x Michael and Amanda were very accommodating.The food was great,service was excellent. Thanks all for a great stay over. Love from Paul & Steph. ps looking forward to going back.
Bed was comfortable and shower was larger than average.
The outlook from the rooms was poor expected to look out over canal. Noisy location near railway and motorway. No air-con so had to have windows open. Choice at breakfast was disappointing.
Dark smelt of damp on way to rooms, furniture was junk, room full of old spider webs and both dead and live spiders, bathroom had mould, really small and carpeted! The bedroom carpet was badly stained. Got charged twice on my card and had to go to card company to get refund, was sworn at by staff when calling for refund.
the owners allowed for the fact that the hotel is right under the noisy M5. could not hear any noise from inside the room unless the windows were open.
value for money. Not
The canal side location sells this hotel online. It appears for all intent and purposes the ideal booking at a decent price. It is easily found even though it is down some country lanes. The room was clean. It's only major advantage of being very close to the M5 is that next day we were up, packed and away post haste!
The unwelcoming staff.....we booked in (signed a piece of card) and told rather smugly that breakfast was not included....but we could have a breakfast each for £7.99! We were given a set of jail keys (I mean room keys). The bar attendant then proceeded to show us with as much gusto and enthusiasm as a kid being told it's got to go to bed which keys opened which door. The bathroom shower was so tiny and narrow that my size 10 frame touched all sides and my nose brushed against the wall when turning round to get the shampoo. Slight bit of advice take a bottle of 'one-does-all' as the combination of the misty spray and compact area means you have to fumble about with your eyes shut unless you don't want to see for the rest of the day. I'm all for minimal waste and recycling but don't really feel that to finish the previous guests bottle of miniature shampoo is that hospitable. The bed was clean and a nice decent size for two.. Width ways.....However I could waggle my feet off the edge whilst rubbing the top of my head against the headboard. The hotel advertises a TV in every room. That is true. However it fails to inform you that you only get to watch half the TV as the screen has also given up the ghost....probably joined the other half of the bottle of shampoo! So we decided to have a drink in the bar to relax. My partner chose a pint of cider but didn't order the 5 inch hair complete with head scab attached that came with it. Unfortunately this was discovered post first gulp and retrieved like a magicians hanky from the back of his throat! As for the food....either take your own packed lunch or drive out. On leaving we handed the key back to not so much as a thank you or enquiring as to our stay and proceeded to pack the car to make a hasty retreat only to be greeted with the sight of a woman towelling herself down in one of the rooms through the not so opaque glass.
Convenient location, comfortable bed.
Room not ready on arrival, although phoned in advance. Decor and fittings dated and needed attention.
The location was excellent very near to motorway and easy yo find with lots of signage
Wfi didn't work well on room
Location, Price of room, friendly staff
rubbish wi fi, room very basic, mediocre food & pricy for what it was
The location on the banks of the canal. The room was very good and clean with a lovely view over the canal.
The breakfast although good could have been hotter. The noise of the motorway nearby, although you did get used to it eventually.
The noise. The staff and taking money from card with out permisson
