            We had a such a surprise when entering our room how luxurious it was. Lots of little extras in the facilities, sweet treats, fresh milk for our room beverages and home bakes to tempt us.What could be nicer.

            This Guest House /bb was absolutely fabulous. We were only there for one night but we never wanted to leave. The Bedroom was luxurious and had everything you could need in it. Hairdryer, Bathrobes, soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, Huge bath towels for when you manage to drag yourself out of the brilliant shower,Tea/coffee (with fresh milk in a chiller in the corridor along with cookies and muffins to help yourself to). Iron and ironing board, dab radio, tv. You only need to turn up with your clothes!! The breakfast was excellent with a massive choice of juices, smoothies, yogurts, pastries, cereals etc etc and then your cooked breakfast. Would I reccomend the The Somerfield??? Yes - without hesitation!!!

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Allmost everything was perfect – the location (close to the centre, but quiet), the cleanliness and the decorations, the bed itself and the service, including a tasty breakfast. We highly recommend it and we hope to be able to come back.

            The minuses were the wi-fi access which was not available in the room (a more powerful router would have done the trick) and a 4% charge for payment by credit card in advance, not mentioned when I booked on-line.

            Everything was perfect, rooms immaculate and nicely furnished, lovely bathroom, great breakfast and very nice owners! I had a great stay at the Somerville and I want to thank Adam and Grant!

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were superb! We had a choice of fresh fruit, fruit juice, cereals and yoghurts and full english breakfast or omelette to follow if required, plus toast, tea /coffee etc. The hotel is tastefully decorated, has a pleasant and colourful garden area and a good sized rear car park. Very well situated with only a 5 minute(approx) walk into town, but far enough away to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep. We requested a lighter duvet for one of the beds and this was dealt with immediately. Good information for getting out and about and tourist attractions from reception.

            This was the first time we stayed at the hotel. The room was a little on the small side,but not really an issue as we were out all day,every day, but the hotel does have larger rooms and suites to offer guests.
