Combe House Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful small hotel, very friendly hard working staff, all areas really clean, bar area small and cosy with real fire in the evenings, local wild Deer made an appearance special mention for Serena jack of all trades and nothing too much trouble. Only bad points shower in room 15 dribbles so took ages to wash my short hair. And mobile, wifi signal non existent (rural so nothing to do but enjoy the peace)

The family room was just right for my wife, daughter and myself, with a comfortable king size bed and a separate room with a fold out bed that my daughter said was great! The breakfast was excellent and the staff was pleasant, friendly and attentive at all times. I can't comment on evening meals, as we ate elsewhere. The hotel's situation is wonderful, lying at the end of a narrow country lane, in a small wooded vale in the Quantock Hills. Peaceful and quiet. A mild complaint: my wife and I have mobility difficulties and we found showering a challenge, as there were no bathmat or grip rails.

Stayed here two nights during walking around the Quantocks and had a really good couple of nights sleep! The room was nicely prepared and had a full double bed however the shower in our room was a little on the tiny side - barely room to turn around without hitting the shower sides! Dinner was nicely presented and good quality with excellent service by staff however the quantities were lacking compared to dinner we had elsewhere the following night. Breakfast was a well prepared self service affair although you had to order cooked options which also were a little on the light side (one slice of bacon!). Great coffee! Highly recommended for it's location however eating out at least one night is certainly a good idea if you fancy venturing further afield.

Superb location set in a beautiful valley and so very quiet. Nicely decorated rooms with comfy beds. Fantastic food and lovely friendly staff. Just can't fault it. I'm having a problem with my mobility (waiting for knee surgery), so this location was great. Nice level grounds. Easy access to bar and restaurant. Looking for an excuse to go back!

The room was perfect. Lovely views all around. Fantastic walks. Gorgeous food with incredibly friendly waiting staff. (Would like to thank the girl with the specsavers glasses specifically). Great stay!

Had a lovely couple of nights at the Combe House Hotel in August. The location is just perfect, peaceful and private. Our room was at the back of the hotel,so had no view and you could hear the fan from the kitchen, but this stopped by 9pm so didn't affect our sleep( this was one of the dog friendly rooms and we did have our dog with us) However, it was clean and spacious, with a huge, really comfortable bed and a nice ensuite bathroom. We ate in the restaurant and the food could not be faulted...breakfast was equally as good. Fully recommend the afternoon cream tea.. Staff very friendly, especially Serena who looked after us really well, nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be making a return trip, thoroughly enjoyed it.

We stayed recently at Coombe House in Holford and were delighted with everything about the place. Our room was extremely comfortable exceptionally clean and all facilities were provided. The staff were polite and helpful and very willing to please. The owner was constantly available to oversee efficiency and the impression was one of a genuine effort to provide an excellent service. The food requires particular comment. It was an outstanding quality and really could be compared to the very best restaurant food in big cities like London. It was very clear that the standard set was very high and this was achieved across the menu. I would thoroughly recommend Coombe House without reservation and, having read one or two negative comments in reviews wonder whether they actually refer to the same place. I think that all round for comfort , cleanliness and excellent food it would be hard to find better.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch in the picturesque garden. Lovely salmon and crayfish platter, burger and delicious brownie and clotted cream. Our dogs were welcomed on the lead and enjoyed soaking up rare October sun! V good service, would return for an evening meal if we had a few more days of holiday left to squeeze it in.

We booked a superior room in this hotel as a break on our way to the west country. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the garden at the front of the hotel and was very comfortable and as a bonus had a small sitting room adjacent to the bedroom. Bed was very comfortable and as the hotel is at the end of the lane the area was very quiet. We eat in the restaurant both nights and the food was very good, one great thing about the restaurant is that the tables are spaced well apart which makes it more relaxing to eat. Breakfast was also very good with a lot of choice and full English tailored to your needs. There is a pretty garden to sit in if weather allows and we walked from the hotel straight up the coombe and on to the Quantocks, it is however quite a climb, but the hotel does supply directions for several walks. Staff were friendly and helpful even when we left things behind when we left, but one thing to note is the hotel is at the end of a dead end lane and therefore you will need to travel some distance if you want to eat out. The Plough Inn at Holford is a long walk and has good beer and food but not the atmosphere of the hotel, in fact although the hotel has a small comfortable bar they did not have an ale to my taste. We found the hotel comfortable relaxing and quiet with a nice restaurant good to chill or walk and dog friendly if you have one, as ever rooms in the hotel vary and rooms at the back of the hotel are unlikely to have the view we had but even so a good place to stay.

A delightful hotel in its own gardens and a superb woodland walk minutes from the front door. The food is excellent and breakfast "perfect". Amy on reception, bar and restaurant is an asset to the hotel. It was also very nice to have a talk with the owner in the bar area and we also met the Chef who is so looking forward to Christmas!!! Well done Chef food very good. It is so peaceful in the area and if that is what you are looking for, like we were, then Combe House is the place for you. Rooms and bathrooms were nicely furnished with big comfortable beds and linen.
