“Worthy of the hype - great base for Somerset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

Drawn to this hotel when planning a trip to Somerset and fancied somewhere different to stay - maybe slanted by a love of Chinese food!

Booking is by phone rather than internet - a bit unusual these days - but part of the experience where interaction with the host is part of the visit. You are made to feel welcome from the booking process through to check out.

Rooms are on the whole delightful. As travelling with a friend I required a twin bedded room - this was not the biggest but adequate. Doors were open to other rooms as quiet night - the superior rooms looked stunning. Beds were the most comfortable I've slept on for some time. The room was absolutely spotless and pristine. Only niggle was the shower - water pressure not strong - a power shower would have been delightful.

The highlight however was the food - Ron (husband and chef) was most welcoming and clearly a master at his trade. English breakfast one of the best I have had for many years. Chinese dinner on the one night was excellent - beware though - portions are on the large side. Waitresses were most personable and charming.

Overall - a most pleasant surprise. Chard itself may not be the first tourist destination - but it is perfectly placed as a centre for touring the area, and worthy of stopping off to stay at Bath House.

From the moment you enter the Hotel until you leave you are made to feel like one of the family. There committment to customer service is 'second to none'. Rooms are spotless.
I will most certainly stay again when next in the area.
Top Nosh. Top people

Was a little bit dubious about staying above a Chinese restaurant when first booked, but from the moment we arrived, we were more than pleasantly surprised! The greeting couldn't have been warmer and instantly we felt very welcome! My husband, who doesn't normally like the over familiarity that a small hotel may bring, was also impressed by the privacy and amazingly high standard of the hotel. We stayed for one night, ( i wish it was more!!) for a wedding and could honestly say this was a little Oasis! The room was modern, spacious, clean and luxurious!! I felt thoroughly spoilt!! Breakfast the next day was by far the best breakfast in a hotel I have ever had!! Would definitely return, if only for the hotel experience!!

Room Tip: ask for Hollywood suite!!

We stayed for 2 nights, whilst attending a friends wedding nearby and I have got to say, the comments as mentioned by previous reviewers are totally justified. This is a GREAT Hotel/B&B!

It ticks all the boxes, Clean, comfortable & nicely decorated and overall great value for money! What however set this Hotel apart is the hospitality of the staff, who were all excellent, very friendly and would go out of there way to help you! The food is excellent, particularly there Breakfast, freshly cooked to order with a great selection, and they will also get your favorite newspaper in for you to read.
The best part for me was that "lie-ins" are actively encouraged, so having a later breakfast , was no problem, meaning we could totally relax and enjoy our weekend!

If your needing a place to stay in or around Chard, you wont be disappointed! We would 100% stay again!

My husband had stayed in this Hotel before and loved it. So we booked for an overnight stay on our way down to Cornwall so that I could also enjoy the experience..
i was not disappointed.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated.
The food was also excellent and perfect poached eggs in the morning.
Corrine, Ron and all their staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome.
i would definately like to stay there again.
