Pub/Hotel - so not 'luxurious', but adequate for simply a night's sleep (plus free WiFi was useful!)
We stayed here to be close to Yeovil Hospital where our daughter had been admitted; we needed 2 consecutive nights, which seemed to be difficult to find in the Yeovil area on this particular weekend (mid-June). The checking in process was a little 'casual', although the staff (or could have been the owner - it wasn't possible to tell and there were no introductions) were friendly enough once they spotted that we didn't know where to go or what to do! There were no signs to indicate where new arrivals should go and this would have been helpful, arriving at the time we did (3pm-ish on a Friday afternoon).
The room was clean and contained adequate furniture for our purposes, although a chair would have been useful. Our biggest 'issue' was the fact that there were vertical blinds at the window - but no curtains; in mid-summer, it is light until quite late and again very early - we were unable to shut out the light at all, meaning that our nights' sleep were cut very short!
Old-fashioned mortice-type lock and key to lock/unlock the bedroom door (inside or out) meant that it wasn't possible for me (as the REALLY early riser of the two of us) to go out for a walk and both lock the door but also leave the key for other half to be able to 'escape' if it were necessary; two keys (or a card-entry system) would have been easier.
Plenty of (VERY!) hot water, free toiletries, tea/coffee making facilities and supplies - along with biscuits - were a welcome addition and the views from our room (no 18!) on the second floor, at the rear, were over the lovely lake at the rear and the open countryside beyond. There was a mini-fridge in the room, which could be useful for anyone spending a lot of time in/around the pub/hotel grounds and the heating clearly worked well, as the radiator was on even though, in June, we might ALL have hoped that 'summer weather' would make this unnecessary!
There was a wedding reception in the side function room on the Saturday evening and whilst, from OUR room, there wasn't too much of a problem with the noise from the disco, the automatic 'spilling out' of people into the rear car-park/seating area inevitably meant some very loud voices and some energetic children; it was necessary to keep the windows closed in order to minimise this noise, which meant it was quite hot and therefore a little harder to get off to sleep.
The venue has a range of different kinds of rooms, apparently, so I can't comment for ALL of those, only the simple 'double ensuite' room we were booked into - but, in short, this was a clean, functional place to spend the night and with a range of cereals, toast and cooked breakfasts 'on tap' and included in the £70 per night cost, along with free WiFi throughout the pub/hotel, it was perfectly adequate for our needs; I would not, however, consider it appropriate as a base for a 'holiday' of real length as THIS kind of room did not lend itself to being able to spend any length of time in it during the daytime and apart from the pub bar, there wasn't really anywhere else to 'sit' indoors.
We were happy enough with our stay to visit relatives in hospital (we weren't at the pub/hotel much during the daytimes!) - and enjoyed the freshly cooked English breakfast prepared by Gill (who was very friendly) - so would be happy to use the venue again in the future, for similar purposes, but possibly not as a real 'holiday' base. I hope this review is accepted as being a fair and balanced view of our experience of staying at The Halfway House

Excellent family friendly hotel
We had a great family room, which had interconnecting rooms, great for when you have 2 slightly older children. They loved staying in the bunk beds and felt like they had their own room. The room was nicely decorated. The view over the lake at the back of the hotel was beautiful. The breakfast was lovely with a choice of either continental or full English and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would gladly choose this hotel again if we, are in the area.

Only downside was that I was told Sunday breakfast started at 7.30 which I had prepared for, but in fact started at 8.30 so I was hanging around for an hour!

We missed an elevator. A small staircase with heavy luggage is not really attractive

Friendly clean and good value
the service was great, breakfast was a real full English, the rooms were a decent size and though it wasn't the most modern hotel the rooms were clean and well looked after.

Halfway House Inn Country Lodge near Yeovil
Lovely setting just 2 miles out of Yeovil so you feel you're out in the country. Room comfortable and the shower although above the bath was a delight to use - can set the temperature precisely (pre-set at 38 degrees C). Had an English breakfast which was well cooked and tasty.

Noisy bed of nails
I am a trainer and was a very tired one after leaving this place the noise from the bar was to loud for a place offering accommodation .the bed felt like a 6" concrete slab and the sausages on the breakfast plate were harder than that .When checking out you have to wait till the cook has finished what he's doing in the kitchen to check you out which for me was 10 mins .i went to train 9 people very tired and regretting this booking rest assured it won't happen again

Friday Night Stop Over (Football)
The twin room was clean and tidy. Location alongside the fishing lake and countryside would be hard to beat (especially if you are a fisherman). Only had one course but the evening meal we had was excellent and the portions were huge - just a shame we both couldn't finish them. Only downside was that the bathroom light was on the blink and although we mentioned this straight away nothing was done - would have been easier to switch rooms as it was late on when we arrived. Breakfast was once again excellent and overall the stay was a pleasant one despite the disco effects in the bathroom.
