Reviews - Kerrington House

5AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
Musbury Road, , , Axminster, EX13 5JR
Welcome to Kerrington House. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens on the edge of Axminster, Kerrington House has been lovingly and sympathetically restored, retaining many period features such as marble fireplaces and fine plasterwork ceilings. Decorated with a comtemporary feel, in soft neutral colours, the hotel has been furnished with relaxation in mind, with a personal collection of antiques and favourite pieces to suit the mood of individual rooms. Conveniently located with great travel connections, many local places of interest are easily accessible. For example, the historic coastal town of Lyme Regis, popular to writers such as Jane Austen and John Fowles, is a short bus-ride away, and Exeter, the region's capital, is accessible by train. Home to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's most recent River Cottage head quarters, which boats delicious organic produce and a delightful tea-room and garden, Axminster is becoming a thriving market town, whilst maintaining its quaint and relaxing air. We have created a unique atmosphere of warm and friendly informality with a high level of personal service and attention to detail. Kerrington House is in an ideal setting for soaking up the beautiful scenery of Devon and Dorset.

A lovely hotel with a lovely hostess. We stayed in room 4 (Gardenia). The room was a great size and beautifully decorated in a traditional style, with sash windows that overlooked a well tended garden. The bathroom was again very traditional with a large bath and a shower over the tub. Robes were provided as were perfectly fluffy bath towels and flannels. In room hospitality included tea and coffee making faculties as well as a brandy decanter with sufficient brandy for a good few night caps! Although we didn't take advantage of the honesty bar in the downstairs lounge room we both agreed in was a fantastic idea. The breakfast menu was extensive with a good choice of cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt and variations on a full English breakfast with alternatives including smoked salmon and bagels and pancakes. We really enjoyed out stay at Kerrington House and should we ever find ourselves heading to Axminster in the future we would certainly book a stay there again

A pleasant stay
We really enjoyed our short break in Dorset / E.Devon, which was enhanced by the excellent accommodation offered by Kerrington House. We had a comfortable room with a four-poster bed and everything was maintained to a high standard. The decanter of sherry in the room was a nice touch! The breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed excellent , friendly service. On arrival, we were greeted warmly by the owner., who made us feel most welcome.

A Real Last Minute Gem
A beautiful house, we were lucky enough to have a large room which was a new addition. The owner was very friendly and helpful. A huge bed, very clean linen, with everything you need for your stay. Even a courtesy supply of sherry for a pre-dinner drink! A good breakfast, service was a little slow, but we understand they were training some new staff at the time.
