It was good to stay in a hotel which is different to the more modern spa hotels where all the rooms are the same.
The staff are keen to assist in any way they can. The receptionist remembered my name and staff in the restaurant had the knack of being there when needed and somewhere else when not. The restauant may not be to everyone's taste. It seeks to be high cuisine which means the food is very good but the portions, whilst adequate, may seem a bit small to some. It is also expensive. However, unusually for this type of restaurant there are some reasonably priced wines available. I would recommend that guests try the restauant at least once but if you prefer something more homely there is a really good pub about 200 yards away with a thatched roof, cask ales and the home baked pies are just brilliant.
Breakfast at this hotel is teriffic. Its not the usual buffet available in most hotels anywhere on the planet - you order what you want and they prepare it fresh. Try the porridge - its great - actually, so are the muffins and eggs, - and the salmon - and the full English and the coffee - they even get the toast right!
The spa is very good. It is small but there is a hot tub, warm pool (not really big enough to swim in) a sauna, steam room , laconium and various showers. They also let you wander around the hotel in your bathrobes.
This is a good hotel which is not pretentious in any way. I would have no hesitation in recomending it to friends.

It was the break we needed on our travels around the UK. One night in this lovely easy to find hotel was the refreshing change we needed. Our lovely room opened out onto a garden setting which made for a relaxing afternoon. Having a restaurant and bar within the complex made our meals a pleasurable walk away.

A very friendly, welcoming & laid back hotel. Room excellent.with enormous and most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in and bathroom spotless with a great walk in shower. Set in a very peaceful location - it was just what we wanted.
"Excellent, quiet location in the heart of Somerset"
The hotel staff was consistently attentive and accommodating. The room were well appointed, the bed comfortable and above all, the room was quiet.
The hotel restaurant was a delightful surprise and the chef remarkable. The cuisine was beautifully prepared with exceptionally well integrated and interesting flavors. The use of local ingredients was creative and the presentation a palette of color. A very well chosen and interesting wine list as well!
