Not cheap but, well worth the £80.00 a night, our room was more than adequate with a full sized bath with shower, it was pleasing to the eye, clean, well maintained and comfortable.

Stayed here for the first time while visiting Chard on Business. The room given was excellent. Lovely size with 4poster bed. I ate in the bar rather than being the only person in the restaurant the food had a limited choice but was excellent. Breakfast was excellent. with a good choice. I will visit again.

I arrived late from working, but the friendly and helpful hotel staff had all prepared for my arrival and check-in. The rooms are clean, and to the typical Best Western standard with toiletries and the cooked breakfast menu is good.
