Stayed here for work purposes last week. Having read some previous reviews I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little apprehensive about my stay but after a long journey I was greeted by friendly, helpful staff and a great room! Obviously very recently refurbished to a high standard and tasteful. Bed was very comfortable and despite being a...

Having read some of the reviews and looked at the pictures people had posted to say we were a bit concerned is an understatement however the negativity was proved entirely wrong. Our room which has been renovated very recently and the rooms our friends have were everything you could ask for, they're clean, tidy and comfortable with nice big bathrooms....

Words can't describe this hotel, it's vile, dirty and the guy on reception is un helpful and very rude, don't waste your money here the Tudor hotel down the road is a better hotel to stay in, dirty bathroom, broken toilet seat, ripped net curtains, wallpaper hanging off the walls

This is without doubt the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, The superior room was superior rubbish, most of the hotel was dark and dingy, The garden was overgrown not like it showed in the pictures advertised. The manager of the hotel needs to go to management school because he hasn't got a clue. Whoever owns this hotel is to...

Really unfriendly staff on reception. Bedroom had no heavy curtains on one of the windows only a dirty and very torn net curtain. When this was mentioned to the man on reception he refused to come to the room and said that he had not been aware of it. No apology was given. I was told people kept stealing things...

Don't believe the photos. The hotel is in need of a complete refurbishment. Dated, damaged, very musty smelling and poorly finished. We've given the 2 stars for the fact the bed was quite comfortable and breakfast was ok. The lady serving breakfast was very friendly and accommodating. There are probably better options in Bridgwater for the price.

The photos are very misleading. The garden now looks like a building site. The room clearly hadn't been cleaned. I found someone else's pubic hair in my bed! Also someone else's rubbish on the floor, cracks in the wall, shower door broken. Hardly slept due to the noise of people leaving the near by pub until about 5am Lady at...
