Cliff160814 Family - 09/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

There was a problem at reception. Having been checked into a room reserved and paid for online I was then brought back downstairs and told I was not booked in! There was chaos in reception and I was deeply humiliated as it was inferred/suggested that I had not booked the hotel but the one next door. I had not. Long story short having taken payment online and then again on arrival - saying they do not take payment online - they do, I had the room withdrawn and returned to Somerset a completely wasted 300 mile round trip. I will never stay at this groups hotels ever again. No one seemed to care or be in charge. It is now Monday afternoon and non of my money paid in has been returned.

Great Experience

Not pleased with the guy who booked me through the phone. He failed to tell me I was supposed to reserve a parking space or pay for parking. And when I came there with three kids below 4 last being 6 months with a cold, I had to go back and forth to NCP car park to take things. I also paid 24pounds 12×2 fir parking first before my party and and se onf after my party, the hotel reduction sticker meant nothing to them. The heater in bedroom giving cool air all night, this is surely the worst experience I have got for a 4 star hotel. I'm not exaggerating.

Jill Friends - 02/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stay each year to do Christmas shopping. We had asked if we could have a larger room as we were 3 ladies who can shop!! So we did have to keep doing trips to the car to take bags down. The room was no different to any other year other than we were much higher up. The breakfast was great and really set us up for the day. Although we had booked for 3 there were only 2 mugs/glasses which was a little disappointing. But, when we asked they were delivered. But all in all it is a great location for us the reception area smelled lovely and felt Chrismassey.
