Independently owned character hotel ideal for both business and leisure travellers. Within walking distance of the centre of Somerset's County town Taunton, this 45 bedroom hotel has been transformed to meet the demands of the modern day traveller. Late 2015 the complete refurbishment of the bar & restaurant has created a relaxed drinking and dining venue. Ideal for business or pleasure. Emphasis has been placed on developing a simple yet stylish and comfortable sleeping experience. All rooms have linen duvets, ample work space, refrigerators with complimentary bottled water and fresh milk, flat screen televisions and sparkling en-suite facilities. Free Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel. A flexible combination of meeting and eating rooms and excellent road and rail connections make the Corner House a convenient location for day and residential meetings. The hotel has on site car parking and is in an ideal location for visiting many of the nearby Somerset attractions or as a stopover en-route to or from the Cornish peninsula.

We have stayed here a few times due to the convenience of its location to my grandma. This time however we were put in a room in the attic which was at best adequate. The hot water in the room was not working and when we enquired about this the solution was to give us the key to

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I am pleased the staff offered to move your room and resolve the issue which you declined. I am, like the member of staff, confused as to why you did not have hot water in you room when the rest of the hotel did as it is the same hot water system. None of this of course resolves what was obviously not a perfect position. On behalf of everyone please accept my apology and rest assured I will investigate this issue further. Regards Carlos

Our room was very clean with a modest facility for clothes storage.. The main drawback with the room was the lack of space between the bed and the wall thus with a couple one had to draw the short straw. Additionally the charge for the car park is short of theft as the hotel

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. You correctly highlight that we charge £5 for car parking which for a town centre location is exceptional value and as an incentive to use our Bar and Restaurant we offer a £5 discount voucher in return. I do hope you will return shortly. Carlos

Thank you so much for your positive review. I am pleased that you will be back. I am extremely disappointed by lumpy porridge and Soya milk. Not good enough on our part and I will be discussing this with those involved. It is constructive feedback such as this that keeps us on our toes. Thank You Carlos

Is this hotel pet friendly?
I copied this from their website We are a pet friendly hotel. We love welcoming dogs however we have limited rooms that can accommodate dogs. To avoid disappointment please contact the hotel direct to check the availability of these rooms before you book your stay. (There is a £10 charge per dog, per night)

"A few rooms are very small and not suitable for couples."
"My only tip is to ask for room 48 if you have a four legged friend."
"Some rooms are very small so check the size of your allocated room."
"Avoid the compact rooms unless you are on your own"
"if you don't want traffic noise ask for a back room."
