Reasons for trip

Wow! – This hotel offers a deal available through Travelzoo that takes some beating! An overnight stay for two, cream tea on arrival, glass of sherry in the bedroom, prosecco before dinner, a seven course tasting menu, and full English breakfast for a total of £119. How could we not go for that?!

Just a five minute drive from junction 22 of the M5, this hotel is ideally situated for visiting North Somerset. It stands at the foot of Brent Knoll, a large hillock you normally pass by on the motorway wondering what it is! It’s a typical country house, not very big but quieter as a result. Our ensuite room was very nice, not large but quite adequate for an overnight stay. We received a warm welcome from hosts Paul and Sarah and had our cream tea outside on the terrace in the sunshine. Dinner was superb. Each course was beautifully presented and offered new tasting experiences. You can add wines specifically paired to each course, which I did, but my wife was happy to simply try a sip of each one. All-in-all, it was a dinner we won’t forget for a long while!

We stayed there while touring in Somerset and visiting some National Trust properties and, as we have still more to do, plan to return to the hotel and take the same deal again, but next time after October when the tasting menu is completely different.
