“Great After Sales Service”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

I stayed at the Cornerhouse for two nights on business. Being self-employed and on a tight self imposed expenses budget I booked a single room and this was inexpensive for bed and breakfast. I arrived late in the evening and was greeted very warmly and shown to my room which was clean, fresh and comfortable with a great bathroom with a very large shower. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice all the way to full English and excellent rapid service.
I ate at the hotel in the evening - it is also an Inn and restaurant. I first of all did some work in the bar and tried some of the "home made nibbles" - cockle popcorn and chilli jam - which was absolutely delicious and some Lamb Gold, a light ale brewed especially for the Inn and it was equally delicious. My meal was superb. I ate sea bream with scallops and a black pudding sauce and it was wonderful. Very reasonable too. The restaurant was not busy but there was a good atmosphere as the bar filled and the sounds filtered through.
Unfortunately that night, there was a violent fracas outside my room that lasted about an hour and disturbed my sleep in the early hours. I did nothing about it and made no complaint the next morning becasue I was a bit ashamed that I hadn't tackled the thug outside my door. I did mention it in the hotel's own review web page however and the general manager insisted on refunding my night's accomodation costs. Brilliant!

Great place, great people, great beers, and a great breakfast!

WiFi hit and miss though, despite the booster the landlord was so proud of!

This pub is now called The Corner House. I stayed in one of their single rooms on the top floor. It was a compact room with a spacious en-suite bathroom. The bedroom had been recently refurbished as everything looked new and modern. There were all the necessary mod cons such as a television, hair dryer, tea and coffee facilities in the room. I was glad that despite staying over a weekend and needing to get to bed early due to being on a course, I couldn't hear the people downstairs in the bar-restaurant area. I could however hear some traffic (cars and people!) outside as the pub is just off the main street in Frome. This didn't however stop me from getting a good night's sleep. The only slightly disappointing thing about my stay was the breakfast, there wasn't a great selection of items at the breakfast table, just a few cereals. The first morning there were some yoghurts but not on the second. They did offer toast and a full breakfast to order however not a vegetarian option. Also on the first morning I had to hunt for someone to serve me as no-one was about. Apart from the not so great breakfasts, my stay was a comfortable one and it was just a two minute walk from the very centre of Frome town.

Room Tip: If you want to be as far away from the noise in the bar/restaurant area, ask for a room on the top f...

Difficult to find as recently changed name... Booked it as The Lamb Inn but actually stayed in The Corner House. Stayed there last night as my normal hotel in the area was fully booked. The room was confortable a little attention should be given to cleanliness as there were quite a few cobwebs.
Shame about the plastic hangers in the wardrobe, a per hate of mine...

A few little changes to the bedroom would make it perfect. The chair does not fit under the desk, therefore not possible to work from the desk. The TV is minute, you need binoculars to watch it from the bed. Not enough plugs for a business traveller to plug in all gizmos that require recharging, no light on the desk to work.

Breakfast in the morning was excellent.

I have come to hear that the hotel has recently come under new ownership and it has made such a huge change. I have been a frequent stayer of the The Lamb Inn for quite some time now due to business but it has definitely improved in such a short time and I hear that there are more changed around the corner. I have huge expectations for this place and feel that there are only more positives to come. Recommend this B&B to families or people passing on business.

The Inn is well located in Frome, in easy walking distance of amenities. The Inn itself has a lively bar area and a spacious restaurant. Free Wi Fi is available. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable and the service is exceptional. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. They are actually running the Inn to suit their clients rather than to suit themselves. Breakfast was great with a cooked breakfast as well as cereals, croissants, etc., etc. It is reasonably priced and the levels of service exceptional for a bed and breakfast. Well done to Mel and her team.

Friendly service at check-in however certainly not high-quality accommodation. Room very dusty, TV didnot work, and poor consideration of factors which make for an easy stay...practical considerations ie. room to fill kettle from bathroom tap, where was the hairdryer?, poor guide in room about times for breakfast etc.

OK for 1 night. Wouldn't pay the full rate for this or stay any significant length of time
