We stayed at The Dusthole for one night in one of the cosy wooden cabins at the back of the pub. The cabin was very warm and comfortable and the welcome was very warm and welcoming. We had dinner in the pub which was delicious. Only small criticism would be that our shower wasn't very powerful, but that is a...

I've stayed here several times now and I love it. The owner Tony is lovely and really helpful. Beautiful little old pub hidden away with gorgeous clean rooms with so many lovely and homely touches and to top it all the home cooked food is fab. Really close to Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton, Frome and other great places to Walk or...

Booked a meal for 30 but got a table of 26, prawn cocktails had a lot of mayonnaise in it, the bread that come with it was the only thing that soaked up most of it and made it better. The other choice of starter was a soup which contained either the dogs hair in, or jakes (the very big...

Me & my friend arrived at 2pm on Friday the 16th of December 2016, we went in & walked around & rang the bell for over 20 mins when all of a sudden this man appeared with his flies open, dirty clothes & unbrushed hair. He showed us to our chalets that we're in the garden & left us. We...

When travelling around the country I always look for the combination of a good place, reasonably priced and a decent room. The dusthole promised to be just that. A king size en suite at £90 in a place boasting history and good food. We arrived late evening and were greeted by a nice and quirky place, we were taken to...

I stay here several times a year when visiting family and it never disappoints! The staff are so welcoming, the food is divine and, from someone who dislikes dogs, the dog is adorable! My rooms have always been clean, well themed and comfortable. As I'm sure others have said, location is not amazing but thats not the hotel's fault in...

We were upgraded to a suite but no dressing table and mirror, two in the bedroom but too high! The bathroom was large, lovely bath and shower but no shelf for toiletries and no door!! Lots of lovely pictures and lamps but so cluttered. The barmaid was very brusque, she was taking orders, serving drinks and food clearing tables, I...
