nice hotel but let down by restaurant

hotel attractive in lovely setting but a bit tired.

room nice but 4 poster bed had foam pillows which we dont like. dogs allowed which was helpful. we were going to eat in restaurant but it looked too formal and dusty so ate in local pub which was much more lively. Had buffet breakfast which was poor with tinned fruit and cheap juice served by a grumpy waitress who could have been a bit smarter and smiled a bit more!

Response from hotel

Many thanks for your review we always appreciate feedback both positive and negative but feel we do need to address some of the points you made and the respective ratings that you gave us.

We always ask if guests are happy with their rooms and would have been pleased to address the issues you made regarding pillows, if this had been brought to our attention. With regard to the restaurant appearing formal I understand that this would not appeal to everyone and it is why we are pleased that there is a pub only a short walk away that is able to offer an alternative if that is what guests would like.

I would however take issue with the dining room being described as "dusty", and if this was a problem would have preferred that you raised this with us during your stay, as the housekeeper hoovers and dusts daily.

Breakfast does include tinned fruit - peaches, pears, prunes and pineapples - together with natural yoghurt, fruit yoghurts, a variety of seeds and dried fruits, 8 different cereals, plus the option of Porridge with honey or brown sugar, and a selection of 5 jams and marmalades. We also have 4 different fruit juices, a choice of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or 12 herbal teas. This can then be followed by an 8 option full English breakfast or a continental Ham and cheese platter accompanied by either toast or

croissants. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your breakfast with us but would have liked the opportunity to discuss this with you when you checked out. Additionally we have also added a fresh fruit bowl.

We endeavor to meet all guests requests and were pleased to accommodate your two dogs at no additional charge, although when booking with Laterooms it is important that guests do check in advance as we only have certain rooms that allow dogs to ensure we keep some rooms specifically for allergy sufferers.

Relaxing weekend away

Incredibly friendly staff made this hotel feel like a home from home.

Open log fire in the evening making the lounge inviting before our evening meal, very relaxed atmosphere.

Good choice of food for breakfast. Lovely well presented room with a nice en-suite, well decorated and neat, amazing views of the valley from our window.

A Little Gem of a Find

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel on a last minute booking.

We had a lovely time from the moment we arrived. The staff were friendly and very informative of the area. Nothing was too much trouble. The weather was chilly in the evening but the log fires burning made it relaxing and cozy. The food was excellent with a good menu to choose from. The room (we stayed in No 4) was warm, clean and had everything we needed together with a beautiful view. We would not hesitate to return to this hotel

Great last minute break, would stay again

We stayed in the weaver's loft cottage and it was great, the accommodation was spotless and very comfortable.

As an adult on holiday with my father, it was nice to be able to book somewhere with separate rooms for a reasonable price. The location was excellent, very rural with great views, but only a short distance to walks, villages and places to visit. The only slight negative was the high price of breakfast, but the selection was good as was the quality.

Lovely hotel in a fantastic location

Really very pleased with our stay .

Room was just right with all the things you need and a comfy bed. We stayed in room 8 which had an amazing view down the valley to the moors _ perfect. Evening meal and breakfast were very good. Friendly helpful staff gave good advice on local walks and places to see. We will definitely stay again.

Simonsbath splendour!

a weekend break with our big dog on the moor was what we wanted and the Simonsbath House Hotel was all we could have wished for.

Lovely romantic room, great bed, a fabulous view to the River Barle, very good food, a huge selection of scotches and whiskies with luscious comfort, in the bar and lounge area. Andrew was a helpful and accommodating host and a fund of information about the Hotel and the area. We walked along the river in the morning, on the high moor later on and the coast the previous day before checking in. Lots to do and see. We intend to return.

Great stay

Very welcoming and very comfortable.

The hotel was spotlessly clean with nothing seeming too much trouble for the convivial host and his wonderful cheery staff. Great breakfast. So good it was difficult to leave but I will be back. Thank you once again.
