I'd love to have given 6 stars. To keep it brief--Great Location--Great Clean & Comfortable Rooms--Great Food--Great Staff. What I'm trying to say is our stay here was just GREAT and yes we will be back, thanks to all for our 2 nights stay with you.

We stayed here as two couples for a short break visiting the local National Trust properties and have enjoyed it so much that we are trying to organise a return trip. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the shower is excellent,the bed is comfortable by no means a given in hotels. The restaurant is sufficient reason to plan a return...

Outstanding 3 nights in this lovely Inn. Every one of the staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and so cheerful and fun. The bar staff, servers, chefs and ladies caring for our room were the best. We especially enjoyed interacting with the locals at the pub. Montacute House is within walking distance and a lovely church, St. Catherine's,...
