Dear IannacconeF, Thank you for your review. It is a shame to see such a negative review. However, there are a few things just to point out. The staff who dealt with your complaint that evening all apologised, the waitress who came to your room to take your room service, our Duty Manager and receptionist. We offered to replace the...

Recently we visited the Holbrook House again and enjoyed their 'tasting menu' dinner, which was excellent. We love their generous bedrooms and charming lounge rooms at the ground floor; spa facilities is a bonus. The hotel does not have a commercial feel, it is very pleasant and charming. This historic house was once the home for Mr Shrapnel, the inventor... More

Went with another couple on a tasting menu dinner and B&B. Everything was of a very high standard. Staff were charming, the rooms were huge and comfortable and the tasting menu was first class in both quality and quantity. We were so impressed that we have immediately booked a return visit at a later date.

Cozy country charm and loveliness Welcome worn sofas by the fire, large manorial rooms with elegant grace. A real gem of warmth and style. The staff are second to none. If you are looking for a home from home and a quiet space to unwind and enjoy the English countryside this is the place to come.

One of the things which really irritates me is hotels such as this which, after you have stayed one night, and live 150 miles away, start the spam emails before you've even got home. I wasn't asked at reception if i would like their spams because I would have told them that I did not. Added to which it was... More

We wine for a weekend at the Wincanton races and found this hotel on TripAdvisor. I would 100% recommend this hotel. The staff were incredibly helpful and for the amount that was included in the price we were really pleased. We stayed in the rooms outside the hotel which were lovely. They had forgotten to leave towels in our room... More

The service is great. Rooms super - faded grandeur, huge rooms, comfortable, great views. The food's superb. Breakfast options are excellent - dinner choices are limited but superb. Spa treatments (and the gym and spa) are excellent. We came here seven years ago, and nothing's changed. We won't leave it nearly as long before we return. On reflection, we mostly... More

My wife and I stayed here midweek for the night. We booked a garden room, bed and breakfast. The hotel, up a driveway away from the road, was old, picturesque and delightful. Old armchairs and sofas in the reception gives it a welcoming feel. The room was excellent, big comfy bed with a powerful and hot shower. Nice terrace that... More

Located on the outskirts of Wincanton and set in attractive grounds, this once grand old house is now a hotel which feels like a comfy old slipper that is rather worn around the edges.
