Tired yet pleasantThe George is set in an idilic village setting, yet is tired and needs investment in painting and in staff training. The walls of the extension are thin & you hear everything, yes everything. However the bed in rom no. 6 was very comfortable over our two nights. The power shower was good unless you ...

A good stayIt was very interesting to stay in the main building of this hotel due to its age and character and the fact that it is a listed building.

Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in Somerset

Somerset is one of those counties that seem unfairly blessed with an unusually mild climate, rich soils, beautiful historic cities and numerous cultural attractions. Visitors flock to regions like Exmoor National Park, the Mendips and the Quantocks for their varied scenery and outdoor pursuits, whilst others prefer a traditional British seaside holiday in coastal resorts such as Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super-Mare. Whatever takes your fancy, consider staying at one of the historic hotels in Somerset for a really enjoyable experience.

In Touch with the Past at Somerset Historic Hotels

One of the many delights of booking in to a grand historic hotel in a city like Bath is that you're not just close to all the local attractions, but you can also feel a historic atmosphere all around you, right in your hotel. Many of these hotels have retained their original fixtures and fittings, such as ironwork grilles in their elevators and carved wooden banisters on their grand staircases. You really begin to feel that in these Somerset historic hotels at least, to quote William Faulkner, 'the past is never dead - it's not even past'. Whether it's a converted medieval farmhouse in Yeovil or an imposing Victorian residence overlooking the sea in Weston-super-Mare, your historic hotel will make the perfect base for exploring this part of Wessex.

Historic Hotels in Somerset for All the Trimmings

Choose a comfortable Somerset historic hotel such as the Charlton House Spa Hotel near Glastonbury or Yarn Market Hotel in Minehead and you'll have all the superior services and facilities of a boutique hotel at your disposal. These hotels are typically of a smaller size and have fewer guestrooms. The George at Nunnery in Frome, for instance, has just nine guestrooms, and this of course means that the management can provide you with the higher degree of personalised attention that is simply not possible at larger establishments. Many historic hotels in Somerset also have select facilities such as onsite fitness centres and a range of spa treatments. They make good bases for business guests, but as many of them are also close to the local attractions they're suitable for a wide range of visitors.
