What a shame that our recent visit was marred by the poor choice of sweets as everything else was very good. The apple crumble on the first night was followed by pear crumble the next. We struggled to find any crumble at all. Other choices...each night could be bought from a supermarket ie. profiteroles and Black Forest gateaux. We resorted to ice cream as nothing seemed home made or special.
Frequent spelling mistakes on the board! eg . Vanila ice cream/profitroles/black foretsMore
We have just got back from our stay here. Lovely old fashioned but beautifully clean hotel. Parts are like going back in time but tastefully done. Both evening meal and breakfast were perfect. We would definitely have no hesitation in staying here again. Staff very...welcoming and friendlyMore
Visited for a short stay at Christmas. Furniture in the bedroom is very "dated" and the room generally looked tied. Our first meal was quite good but after that the quality deteriorated rapidly. Main areas of concern started with our second main meal when roasted...vegetables were served. These were served with all remaining main course (even with Dover sole fish), they also got progressively burnt and on our last meal they were black. I heard one customer complain about the burnt roast vegetables and another guest refused to accept them (he was not offered an alternative). On the initial advert it states the Christmas Day buffet would be served in the Restaurant, in fact it was served in a cold, club type room and the standard of buffet was the worst I have seen. On the whole this was not value for the money paid, and would I visit again :- No.More
My disabled husband and myself had a wonderful 5 day break at the Northfields with Emjay Tours. The hotel was very good with lovely spacious room and excellent facilities. The food was exceptionally good beautifully served by lovely staff. Bar prices where very reasonable and...it was nice at night to sit in the comfortable lounges with complementary coffees teas and mints and chat to fellow visitors.More
Stayed in this typically English hotel during our short stay in Minehead. Hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room and bathroom were much larger than we normally would expect with views over the garden. Bed was very comfortable. We made use of the hotel...pool one evening which was a nice surprise for a traditional hotel. We decided to eat in town so made use of the garden gate to take the short walk there via Blenheim park. Breakfast was excellent with good variety.
Would definitely recommend.More
The Northfield Hotel offers very traditional, English-style accommodation, set in lovely gardens and with a panoramic outlook over Minehead bay. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and were willing to deal with all our enquiries without making us feel we were being a nuisance....Our room had a beautiful view out over the bay and the front gardens. It was spacious and comfortable and had a decent bathroom. We ate at the hotel twice, once in the formal dining room, and once in the informal lounge. Both meals were very good. Our waitress, Julia, went out of her way to make sure we were well looked after. The hotel is within walking distance of the main town and the beachfront, plus there is on-site parking which makes it all very convenient.More
poor menu quite repetetive Vegetarian or food allergies not adequately catered for diabetic options non existent ….room was dated a broken drawer a layer of dust covering bottom of wardrobe and incredibly hot and stuffy despite never closing windows
A quintessentially English hotel with a warm welcome and excellent location.
Fine facilities, very good food and excellent staff. The Northfield has an ambience of a country house retreat with a tranquil peaceful atmosphere combined with unobtrusive service.
Our room was large and well-appointed with...the accent on comfort and refinement. All meals were excellent – including the afternoon tea with scones and cakes.
The Northfield seems to exude the level of hospitality and charm that existed in a bygone era. We will certainly return.More
A really warm welcome followed by afternoon tea with fresh scones and clotted cream. A very pleasant walk in the gardens and then into town. The sea front is very close by. Back to the hotel for a swim, steam room and jacuzzi Robes and...swim towels are provided... very nice 3 course evening meal, fresh, hot and delicious nothing was too much trouble for the staff...Sam was extremely helpful.
This was our second visit here and it won't be the last.More
