I stayed here with a work colleague for one evening. This is an old building with a very lovely feel to it. It has bedrooms on several floors with several little staircases, not ideal if you find stairs a problem. The staff offered to carry my bags up to my room for me. My bedroom was very small but had...

We stayed here for 2 nights, check in on arrival was smooth, had forgotten we had to pay for car park which as it's on the hotel grounds seems a bit steep. £5 a night. Also for the quality of the room in this hotel I feel that £95.40 a night really should have breakfast included? The hotel is beautiful...

Thank you for taking the time to review you recent stay with us and I am pleased that generally it was positive. I agree one of our night porters does find understanding anything beyond a pint of lager a technical challenge, however all our regular guests feed back to me his positive attitude and affable nature so I can only...

We often drive past the Corner House Hotel and wondered what it's like inside, so decided to try Sunday lunch today probably one of the best we have had. Two courses for £18.00 good choice of starters and mains, absolutely delicious and plenty of it. Staff very friendly and helpful.

No issues with checking in, however our room was pinned open by a kitkat bar! Compact room as advertised, however we found it quite cosy and accommodating with a kettle and tea/coffee making facilities, plus complimentary water and fresh milk in the fridge. Bathroom was an adequate size, with complimentary toiletries.

I recently stayed here for 2 weeks for work purposes. I found the staff to be extremely polite and rooms were very much what you'd expect for the hotel, the food was great and the general atmosphere was very inviting, I was made to feel very welcome which was great as I'm an anxious traveller and have never worked away...

I stayed for one night, arriving mid afternoon and leaving the next day. Reception staff were very pleasant, as was the owner. There is no lift (not a problem). Had good pointers on the town in terms of what to do. My room was excellent, very comfortable bed, and good bathroom. I have to agree that the hotel was quiet...

I've paid a lot more money for less luxery. This hotel was a great find, very smart and really good value for money. The bed was extremely comfortable, the mini bar was stocked with reasonably priced full sized drinks and chocolate bars. Parking was £5 extra and breakfast wasn't included but could be added on which was fine.

The hotel was very quiet as I stayed on a Sunday and I was the only person to have a meal in the bar - so lacking in any buzz. Staff friendly and service was ok. Room was clean and had everything required, and the heating worked well. Overall good value for an average hotel.

Thank you for your review. Sunday night is our most tranquil night of the week and very often due to the extremely competitive rates we offer many of our customers opt to arrive late in the evening to get an early start in Taunton on Monday. This does mean that the restaurant and bar can be very quiet.
