Service - Excellent
Room was basic but very clean, with bottled water, biscuits, tea, coffee etc....Home from Home.
Set in a beautiful part of the World close to some lovely Walks and Tourist Spots.
We were all made to feel welcome from the second we arrived, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and cheerful.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal on the first of our two night stay and, since the food was so nice with plenty of choice, we all decided to make reservations for the following evening.
We enjoyed a hearty cooked breakfast which set us up for the day ahead.
I would strongly recommend the Penscot Inn.

We chose the Penscott Inn because of its closeness to Cheddar Gorge and the fact that they accept small dogs. This isn't The Ritz - it's 12 bedrooms above a pub, but we found it perfectly comfortable for our short stay. Our room was small but spotlessly clean, with little touches you don't often get in small English hotels, such as a range of teas and coffees, a box of tissues, and a facecloth and shower cap in the bathroom. The location was great for places of interest in North Somerset, including Cheddar which was five minutes away, Wells and Weston-super-Mare. Best of all was the breakfast, which was freshly cooked, hot and quickly delivered to our table. There was also a selection of cereals and fruit juice available. For the amount of money we paid, we were fully satisfied, and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a budget short-stay in North Somerset.

A cosey bar with a log fire crackling nearby. A relaxing afternoon reading the papers sat by the fire drinking the local real ale - Butcombe. The chatter of the local people made it even more interesting. A fantastic 3 course evening meal which could not be faulted. A good nights sleep was sure to follow. A four poster bed which was very comfortable.
A good breakfast followed by a few hours out and about in the vicinity. Lots to explore nearby. Back to the Penscot Inn to meet family for a wonderful lunch. Incredibly friendly staff and a very friendly atmosphere in the bar with the locals.
For a reasonable price you cant beat what this Inn has on offer!

We stayed for a family party in the afternoon, and had supper, and stayed the night.
Service was excellent, food very good, restaurant very good, and the room was very comfortable. Could not fault in any way.

We need a place to stay in Shipham and the Penscot Inn was perfect for what we needed. As it is an old building with character the rooms were adequate, poor heat insulation with those nasty electric heaters and walls were paper thin...could hear guests in the next door room having a conversation at normal levels. Breakfast was not bad however very limited options if you didnt want a fry-up...i.e. only cereal, tinned grapefruit and greek yougurt. None of this would really have mattered if the lady serving breakfast could have shown a hospitality that one would expect in a B&B rather than a forced smile and making serving us come across as an inconvenience.
