Starting with the positives, this is a nicely converted old house with some massive rooms and some very pleasant furnishing, and the staff are very friendly. The restaurant is also very good, with some very pleasant food and some imagination in the menus for breakfast and dinner. If you like quaint, quirky, very English and a dose of Fawlty Towers,...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and your positive comments, as you point out we are a Georgian building so there are a few creeks here and there but that's also the charm with the period furniture, art and all the beauty that goes with that. kind regards Shaun

Picturesque setting, approximately 7 miles outside of Taunton, this hotel is stunning. The staff are impeccable, mainly youngsters late teens/early 20's, but their etiquette and service are up there with the best 5 star hotels. We stayed here for several weeks, so got to know the management and staff quite well, nothing was ever too much trouble and we always...

We received a warm welcome on arriving at the hotel. The room we were given was absolutely delightful, light and airy, warm as toast and very clean. The furnishings and decor were very much to my taste, traditional, soft and relaxing, but if you like ultra modern, then this hotel is not for you. The Food was excellent and the...

Stayed here for 1 night to get away from city life. Very rural and peaceful location. Not much going in locally but its close enough to Taunton/surrounding towns. The hotel allows dogs which I absolutely love! Never been able to have a dog myself so i enjoyed a cocktail in the bar (as cheap as £4!!) whilst stroking a lovely...

I usually use a well known INN brand as my client has an office very close by. However, they were fully booked and so i decided to look outside of the standard motorway style Express type hotel. Farthings didn't disappoint one bit. It may be an extra 15 minutes drive to the my client but the drive is certainly worth...

Arrived very late, was able to get checked in to room after a short wait. Many of the reviews talk about the staff - personally I prefer not to be hassled and I felt the staff were available if I needed them. Cooked and continental breakfast options available. Much nicer than travel lodge etc and more cosy than the larger...

Great country hotel, far better than the Travelodge and chain hotels. "Proper country hotel" in a charming village. Not a lot going on locally, but we stayed after a day at the races in Taunton. Staff were friendly, booked us a taxi, sorted out our rooms etc. Bar is excellent value at £2 per pint, and there is a lovely...
