You can always get a good value meal and drink at a Weatherspoons premises, and this one was no exception. A big sprawling building, obviously busy in the summer. Centrally located with a good cheap car park nearby. We ate panini's with a beer and a wine. Superb

Myself and my sister travelled from London to surprise my Mum whilst she was out with friends for her 70th Birthday, and I can not praise the staff on duty enough. They went out of their way to help make this a memorable evening, especially Brett who accommodated all our wishes with a smile.

This was our first trip away together and we are glad we chose the Wellington, everything was just as described on the website. The room was well furnished and very well kept, the staff very friendly and polite. The lounge bar was busy for the end of January and although it was a Saturday night it wasn't at all rowdy....

Big place in the town of minehead. My friends and I all enjoyed our food. Would recommend for others. My only issue was with the grilled meals only the 'alcohol free' koppaberg was free with the meal and not the one with alcohol lol.

This Weatherspoon Hotel resturant is very reasonably priced to stay and to eat, the rooms are comfortable and roomy, the food is very good with ample portions. The drinks in the bar are cheap except the port by the glass, I was served a shot of Port instead of a port glass which made this expensive. I am partially disabled...

During a trip to Minehead, a while ago 8 of us stayed at this Hotel, having heard about the Spoons hotels. Excellent value for money a huge rooms. A Lloyds bar & restaurant downstairs. Certainly gave us the bug to try other locations.
