The Stowey Arms
We liked the layout of the family room with a separate sleeping area for the children and the room was nice and spacious and reasonably clean and uncluttered, we did think it could easily accommodate a bigger bed which would have been nice.
Our stay was for an event at nearby Westpoint where we had to be by 9.30 so we found breakfast was served quite late at 8.30 and 9 on the Sunday which made it a rush to get there on time and impossible on Sunday.
The Stowey Arms

I would recommend the stowey arms. Great value for money.
Clean and welcoming
Our stay was short but we were made to feel very welcome
Good food good facilities and good hosts
The room we stayed in was lovely with an extra room off the side for our daughter.
The only problems were the noise. The pub was open so the noise was loud going on very late, and the extractor fan outside the window kept our little one awake a lot. But other than that everything was brilliant. The room was modern, lovely fittings and furnishings.
our family exeriience was exceptional.
our reception was friendly and welcomeing with loads off car parking. the family room whichwe had booked was better than expected, we were expection one room with four beds in but their was two rooms, one with two single beds for the boys and the other a double. it was also exceptionally clean and short of nothin it was great. the breakfast, served in the resturant, was spott on.
The bed was a challenge as it did not fell like a double bed with 2 portly occupants
Pleasant country pub, food not haute cuisine but did the job.
Mixed feelings about The Stowey Arms
I have mixed feelings about The Stowey Arms.
On arrival, the young man took us to our room. On the way we noticed the staircase had clearly not been hoovered for several days. The room was nice enough, but being used to much larger beds than a standard double I approached the manageress. Her attitude was quite gruff. No they didn't have any rooms with larger beds - but never mind as it turned out to be surprisingly very comfortable. The layout of the room could perhaps have been better thought out as it was a bit of a squeeze to get to the far side. The next morning I had to retrieve something from under the bed and noticed that the wooden floor had clearly not been cleaned under the bed for some considerable length of time. We found the shower cubicle to also be less than clean, with rubber sucker marks where the metal shelf had been moved. The only bathroom supplies other than paper was a single pump dispenser of hand soap. Just as well that I always carry my own shower gel and shampoo then. In the morning we also found that the toilet wouldn't flush so I ended up filling the cistern with the kettle and later with the shower head.
Breakfast was generous even if the quality of produce was clearly economy. The chef was very friendly and cooked to order. Unfortunately there were no vegetarian options for me, so my partner enjoyed a piled up full English but even so, quantities were generous. The dinning area carpet was however rather dirty and in desperate need of a good vacuuming, far more so than the stairs. Not sure when it was last done, but I doubt that it was a single evening. On leaving I reported the toilet issue to the man there - (manager?) who told me quite gruffly that the toilets did work but were economy fill to stop people repeatedly flushing them. Well ours didn't fill overnight. The biggest down side was that in dropping off the keys, you pass through the main bar. Staff had clearly been smoking in there as there was an ashtray full of fresh cigarette ends and the room stank of smoke. This is a public bar area remember. In conclusion... Good points:
Areas for improvement:
Quality of food
Smell and presence of smoking
Very warm welcome, great room for families, nice food, all was perfect.
We were very happy of our stay with our 2 children of 2 and 7 years old.
