Overview

The Mount Somerset Hotel & Spa is a Regency-era country-house hotel in the countryside near Taunton that has won awards and received wide acclaim from reviewers and hotel guides. It holds four AA Red Stars, which signify Inspectors' Choice status and are The AA's "supreme accolade" for hotels, and three Rosettes for its food, while the The Daily Telegraph praises the "attractive spacious bedrooms" and "cosy but well equipped spa".

Exmoor National Park is a 30-minute drive away, while the Somerset Levels and the Quantock Hills and Blackdown Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are even closer. Glastonbury -- which is known for its ruined abbey and tor (a hill outside the town that is the centre of several Arthurian legends) -- and Wells Cathedral are both within an hour's drive.

With its high ceilings and sweeping staircase, Mount Somerset Hotel & Spa mixes Regency splendour with modern comforts. Despite the manor's generous size, there are only 19 guest rooms, creating an intimate feel. Décor features floral prints and plush velvet, while original antique furniture preserves a sense of the mansion’s history. Some bedrooms also feature roll-top baths.

There’s a gym and a modest Moroccan-style spa, decorated with mosaics and original ornaments from a traditional hammam. There's also a steam room, a sauna, a hydrotherapy bath and a foot spa. For the brave, there is also a kubel dusche -- an elevated bucket of ice-cold water. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

My only dissappointment was the hot tub we had in the room, whilst it worked we were unable to turn the temperature up or down. The views from the patio were nice if you could see them, from your hot tub, however you may not want to see the views as people were walking past with there dogs etc.,
