Fabulous.. The Sommerville was superb from start to end.

Food was delicious, continental breakfast was divine, fruits, cereals and choices upon choices, all top quality and displayed beautifully.

Then wonderful locally produced tea with a superb meat or vegetarian full English breakfast with toast galore and fresh orange juice.... Cooked brilliantly.. Thank you, food heaven, truly. Service was considerate, polite and professional while maintaining friendliness. The decor was really fab, very over the top, opulent, loved the mirrors and cherubs, delightful, our room was wonderfully furnished, immaculately tidy and comfortable. It was very hot and sunny all weekend so the tall, very quiet air fan was very welcomed. The host was polite and friendly, there was a fresh and scrummy selection of cakes freely available each day such as carrot cake, chocolate cake, brownies etc all very delicious too. We couldn't find anything but good about our stay as the weather was fabulous too. Thank you to the very professionally minded owners, clearly top of their game in hosting, a truly 5 star B & B experience, better than most hotels we've stayed in.

Great week at the Somerville

Adam & Grant at the Somerville were very good, We met Adam on arrival and he removed our cases from the car and took them straight to the rooms, My partner and I were really impressed with the suite we had.

The food was very good and fresh. We would recommend this Hotel to anyone looking for something a little bit special. The staff were friendly and very helpful and everybody at the place made you feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you Adam & Grant for a great week.

Simply The Best

The Somerville is very welcoming and has some wonderful small touches which make the stay that much more enjoyable like a complementary fruit bowl, afternoon cakes and fresh milk.

The breakfasts are also amazing and really set you up for the day. It's in a great location close to all amenities and the owners gave us some great advise on good places to visit which were really appreciated. We will definitely return again.
