    « Amazing! »

    Booked this gorgeous hotel as a romantic getaway and to see baths xmas market.. first time staying here and the staff was amazing ..so friendly and so helpful. I wanted the lady at desk to put a chocolate heart on my bottle of prosecco in my room and she gladly done it befor my boyfriend saw it.. the room was so clean and tidy . Amazing view of the golf course.. we had the last twin room left and everything in it we needed. Later we went to jays bar and had food . Natchos to start with was real tasty. Then burger and fris and I gotta say the burger was absolutely stunning. Fattest burger I've ever seen. So tasty and big portions.drinks are good prices to and watched the rugby on big screens .in the morning we wanted to go into the pool abd soa. Realised my boyfriend forgot his swimming shorts. So we rang the reception and asked if they sold them. She said no.. but rang bk 2 mins later and said they had spares in cupboard and what size was he.so helpful and we laughed at the shortness of them. But so glad we cud test the pool out. Pool was fair size nice n clean then the hot tub jacuzzi and steam room and sauna was Amazing. Loved it all. definitely coming back here to this amazing great priced hotel xxx

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    Stayed here for one night mid-week for an unexpected last minute trip, due to the very reasonable price and slightly dated appearance we weren't expecting much but it is a really nice hotel, rather quirky but excellent food in the restaurant and good friendly service from all of the staff. We had the only suite which looks to have been recently refurbished very nicely and has a fantastic bathroom with a large freestanding bath. Worth mentioning though, as someone else has, it is a very large open plan bathroom so the toilet is open with no privacy door or panel so if you are shy or a 'new' couple you might be better with a regular room! Gym, pool and spa facilities good aswell. We stay in hotels alot and were genuinely pleasantly surprised, would definitely come back, great value!

    « Lovely stay »

    Lovely hotel with facilities with a very welcoming, friendly receptionist (Karen) & also Mike in the gym! Rooms nicely decorated with comfy beds. Salmon & scrambled eggs at breakfast were great but slightly disappointed beans weren't part of cooked breakfast. The only other negative was the restaurant prices .. £15 for 6 pieces of vegetarian ravioli as a main! Very pricey. Other than that nothing to fault!

    « Unique room..... »

    So the first thing to say is that the staff are very helpful and friendly and made us feel very at home. We stayed in their one and only suite through circumstance rather than grandiosity but it was very nice having separate "living" and "sleeping" areas. However what was a little unusual for a suite was the fact that the toilet and bathroom were open plan to the bedroom and the toilet and the bathroom were both without a door. Less than ideal for a romantic break! :-) Added to that the bearings on the bathroom fan had clearly gone so the fan was both very necessary and very noisy! I think the kindest way to describe the room would be "quirky" :-) :-) :-) We would certainly stay in the hotel again but would be a little hesitant in choosing the suite!

    « Hotel and Spa in very scenic setting »

    A clean & friendly hotel looking out over a golf course. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable - a little bit of style over substance - you have to sit bolt upright in the chairs, and there's no shelf space in the bathroom, but these are small niggles in what was a really good hotel. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order. Dinners were good too, though the choices a little eclectic. They need to carry a bigger stock of wine - too many had run out.

    « Very happy with room and breakfast »

    We stayed in a deluxe room, which was large and very well appointed, bed was fine, but pillows a bit on the hard side op for me, but others may have liked them! Wifi was free and good. Breakfast was also very good, with lots of cooked options plus a cold buffet. Communal areas were clean and tidy. From the outside the hotel looks a bit rubbish, but inside it is nice and modern!

    « Good base for exploring area »

    Stayed here as a base for visiting Longleat, Wookey Hole, Wells and Bath - about 20 minute drive from all of them ! Had to book a deluxe double in order to get an extra z bed in the room for our son. Room was fabulous though- plenty of space, great shower, huge TV and great views. Easy to find, plenty of parking. We did not eat in the restaurant other than breakfast - which was the only disappointing part of our stay. The continental part was OK (self service) but the cooked part was not as good as it could have been. It was cooked to order - but on both mornings bacon was tough, sausages well under cooked. And no baked beans ! Coffee had to be ordered too - how easy is it to mix up a latte and a cappuccino ? We used the swimming pool - it was OK - a bit small for proper swimming but great for a splash. The gym is (as with a lot of hotels) open to non-resident members and looked good. Staff were very good - friendly and helpful. We had a good stay overall and would recommend.

    « Super Somerset »

    2 storey building with beautiful small garden & access to the golf course. Biggest drawbackj- no lift BUT the staff helped with the luggage and any other little problem quickly and smilingly.Recently renovated . Comfortable, quiet room and bathroom clean with large fluffy towels. Heated towel rail not needed as it was warm and sunny. We had a club- organised w/end with a choice from 3 at each of 3 courses in the Restaurant . Food was locally sourced and very good. Service again helpful , prompt and efficient. Large car park. Use of leisure centre and spa treatments at cost. Buses stop 2 mins away to Bath and Wells and Bristol. The room & facilities for the Bridge were good , drinks reasonable.Get a map . sat nav. or google directions, entrance is set back from the road We really enjoyed our stay .

    « Nice hotel »

    Nice hotel. Not the luxurious 4 star that we expected in terms of Service not to say the service was bad just not on par The attached Golf course / gardens made for charming viewing during breakfast . Breakfast was simple buffet spread with delightful local produce we thought that was nice until further delighted to learn the absence of cooked breakfast buffet was due to the fact it is made fresh upon request. The scrambled eggs ( most people cannot get it right ) were perfect and proof they had a real Chef there . The waiting staff were sincerely polite and non pretentious . Hard to find these days . Equally hard to find was the hotel itself nestled deep into the non illuminated car only accessible countryside a true escape but a good 30 mins drive to bath town . Rooms were satisfactory but lacked amenities I felt this was more a members club than the 4 star hotel I had anticipated . Mattress was too soft for my liking . I still don't know what the pull cord above the bed was for . Hot tub was large 6-8 ppl but broke on the 2 nd day . Pool looked nice and of a medium size although we didn't swim . Breakfast , fitness , Golf and spa would be the reasons to book this hotel .

    « Friendly, welcoming and comforting.. »

    A great location with outstanding views which were delightful (albeit next to a golf course) the hotel is set in an area overlooking a mass of green, open spaces. Check in and check out was fast and efficient and we encountered nothing but friendliness and warmth from all the staff we made contact with and Best Western should be proud of the team that runs the hotel, efficiently and effectively with their constant smiles and warmth. From reception to bar to breakfast service we were made to feel welcome at every turn and they go out of their way to ensure your stay is a good one. The hotel seemed somewhat old fashioned but this may be the style to which they aspire and prices were more than reasonable. The rooms were spotless and although the bathrooms do not overflow with luxury toiletries what they provide is more than adequate for their guests. Communal areas were comfortable and breakfast, freshly cooked to order was excellent. Beds were rather firm but the peace and quiet from the location of the hotel made for excellent sleep quality. Well priced for an overnight stay we were more than happy that we had received excellent value for money. Good, ample parking facilities,though I am unsure whether this is a hotel you could use without your own transport as it is set a fair distance from Bath and Bristol or any major local attractions and we were not here long enough to test public transport. I, personally, would have no hesitation in recommending the Centurion for a place to lay your head. Thank you to everyone involved in making our stay a good one.

    « Very disappointing-ineffective management, dirty swimming pool. Not recommended. »

    Throughout our dealings with this hotel we were given conflicting and inaccurate information and the management were totally ineffective. I would definitely not recommend having a function here as when trying to deal with our situation, we were continuously told that the on-call manager wasn't coming because he, "didn't have the authority " to deal with it. When we asked to speak to a manager who did , we were told, "Mark deserves a day off". I have never experienced such poor management and customer service. I find it unbelievable that in a hotel that size and advertised as a Great Western Plus that there was apparently nobody with the authority to help until 2 days later. The dining room staff and spa receptionists were very helpful but the swimming pool was green all the way around and the floor in the spa was incredibly slippery and dangerous. Overall, I would avoid this hotel particularly for functions such as weddings or conferences as the staff tell you one thing but, this is not backed up by the absent management.

    « a simple choice »

    Clean, pleasant hotel ,well staffed . Overall good value. Restaurant good quality but not cheap.Some menu items are a bit "strange.Bar menu ok but may need a bit more imagination. Not the cheapect hotel, but ou get what you pay for.

    « Faultless »

    As soon as we checked in we had a good feeling about this place. The staff went the extra mile with their friendliness and 'can do' attitude. The room was excellent as were the other communal areas. Food was outstanding and was only bettered by the excellent, friendly waitresses. Would definitely recommend. Why isn't this place packed with locals? We'd be there every night.

    « Would go back just because of the wonderful staff! »

    Three night short break at the Centurion and this proved to be one of the best places we've stayed for a long time. The main 'attraction' for another stay, aside from the lovely rooms/views, would have to be the staff. Without exception, staff at reception, at dinner and at breakfast excelled at good service and friendliness as well as being enthusiastic about their work; they were all delightful and the managers can be proud of their team. If there was a downside, we initially booked into the suite which you could only say was extremely highly appointed. But it really was form over function as the only thing separating the loo from the bed (about 6 ft away) was a 6' 6" partition wall with no door. I suppose it's a matter of personal taste/preferences but I'm afraid effectively 'performing' in the bedroom was less than comfortable for us. Nonetheless, when we asked for a change of room (the Deluxe Double was also very high spec'), the reception staff could not have been more helpful or efficient, arranging another room immediately and offering to move our suitcases for us while we went out for the day. Our waitress at dinner (which was also good) could not have been more enthusiastic and happy to recommend from personal experience. Breakfast was equally fine and set us up nicely for the day. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would say a big well done to all the staff.

    « Excellent hotel - brilliant, helpful staff »

    77 of us stayed at this hotel for 1 to 4 nights each, for my daughter's wedding at a nearby farm. We all had a wonderful time which was enhanced by the helpful staff who went out of their way to make our visit perfect. The food, 1 night's dinner and all the breakfasts, was excellent.

    « Great facilities »

    Stopped here on and off for a few nights at a time over the past few month. During the weekend it is busy with wedding functions and other group functions, but these didn't impact upon my stay despite the influx of guests. The staff and management are really accommodating and can't do enough to help. Next time I'm in the area I won't hesitate to book in for my stay.

    « Groupon spa deal »

    Bought spa deal with friends through Groupon. spa is lovely but very small and pool not a great size. staff friendly, place is clean. one thing i would say is don't where the slippers they give you in the sauna area as you may well fall on your backside!! (health & safety!)

    « Overnight trip »

    Stayed for one night while visiting friends and taking a trip to longleat safari park. Staff were so friendly, we booked the family room which was a brilliant size and very clean. Swimming pool was clean and perfect for freshening up. Beautiful views all around. Very quiet overnight. Swimming pool opened at 7am so went for a swim before breakfast. Breakfast was lovely. Continental and full English. You can pick and choose as much or as little as you like. Service was with a warm welcome smile. Lovely hotel, lovely staff, can't wait to go back

    « Short or Long Break »

    As good a hotel as they come with all amenities, happy staff and lovely setting. Pleasant golf course. Very well equipped leisure centre. Swimming pool looked reasonable size. Did not use sauna. Room probably redecorated within the last year. Part waitress service breakfast that seemed to work well. Generous with breakfast food. Could use this hotel as short family break with children or business break.

    « No murder in Midsomer »

    An excellent stay in this modern hotel, which is nailed onto the side of a golf-club. Our room - an upgraded one - was big and beautifully decorated. The public areas are looking tired, especially the hotel bar, but no matter. The restaurant is somewhat overpriced and the food average - my steak was at least 40% fat - and it was impossible to use the small swimming pool as it was full of screaming kids! That all said, we had an enjoyable stay in pleasant surroundings with very friendly and attentive staff.

    « Lovely stay, friendly staff »

    The hotel is beautifully appointed and the staff are friendly. The room was well equipped, clean and comfortable, especially the bed. The bathroom was also clean and well equipped. I booked room only but decided to treat my self to a full English on my first morning. Sadly this was the one area that the hotel lost points on both quality and value for money. My charge for my breakfast was £14.75. There was the usual choice of cereals, juice, fresh fruit, of which I only had juice and coffee. A full English is my treat to myself and sets me up for the day. Sadly my breakfast took more than 20 minutes from ordering to arrive. If I wanted toast I had to toast my own. The offering on the plate was one egg, one mediocre sausage one small rasher of overcooked bacon, one hash brown, half a tomato and half a slice of black pudding. Earlier this year I stayed at another spa hotel in the Lake District. It cost £20 less per person for the room and included all the usual cereals, juices, fruit, as much fresh toast as we could eat (brought to the table for us) and cooked breakfasts of locally sourced eggs, veg and meat which were very generous to say the least and cooked to perfection. In all other aspects the hotels were very similar. Other than the marked difference in breakfast costs and quality there was nothing to choose between them. A search a few moments ago on both hotels to book identical dates for identical stays in September showed the same cost disparity. That's a shame because everything else was wonderful.

    « Anniversary Tour »

    Booked it as a treat for the family. A well appointed hotel with all the amenities. Staff were very attentive and accommodating. Breakfast was good but the service was a little slow. Thought the meals in the restaurant were a tad overpriced for what they were, steak chips and a bit of lettuce £17.00 for an example. My wife wasn't full of praise for the four clams and bit of fish for her main either. Rooms were good overlooking the mature gardens and golf course.

    « Friendly and Welcoming Hotel »

    We stayed her for two nights while attending a relative's funeral in the area. We travelled over 400 miles from Scotland to this destination in Somerset and were delighted with the overall quality and standard offered by the hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome and the staff without exception were friendly, professional and most helpful. Our first port of call after checking in was the bar for a drink after such a long journey. As there was a wedding reception taking place that bar had been designated for guests only but the lovely young lady serving said that was no problem and willingly served us two great G&T's. We then sat outside in the sun in beautiful gardens overlooking a golf course. We ate dinner in the restaurant both evenings and found the service outstanding and the quality of food excellent. Great choice of wines at very competitive prices too. Breakfast was also served in the restaurant which again was of an excellent standard offering a great variety of continental and freshly cooked items. Our waitresses were exceptionally polite and friendly and really helped to make a sad occasion that bit much more enjoyable. The funeral wake was also held here and the hotel provided a really nice finger buffet during the afternoon. Jake at reception was a really decent and most helpful staff member and presented a great example of how to deliver top quality customer service. Well done to all for making us feel so welcome. Room was very comfortable and well appointed and delivered quality at a very competitive rate. Would recommend highly to fellow travellers and only 13 miles from Bath with free on site parking too.

    We recently had reason to stay for 2 night at this, a well specified independently operated Hotel. Although it not the most attractive of buildings it was a welcome break and the staff could not have been nicer. Everyone in our party had a good experience with good food (occasionally an over cooked black pudding) and great facilities. Clean and up to date rooms! Would stay again and recommend this Hotel.

    « Perfectly professional pampering! »

    « Pleasant, but could be noisy »

    Nice friendly welcome on arrival with offers of help with our luggage. Despite having a Best Western Diamond Card and showing at reception there was no ?Recognition Gift,' so perhaps they don't fully participate in the B/W Rewards programme. We were a party of four in two separate rooms. Our room (215) was located at the rear of the hotel overlooking the golf course and well maintained garden with its pond. The room itself was comfortable and of a reasonable size, but the view from the window was spoilt by the integrity of the double glazed window having gone. There was a refreshment tray with biscuits and bottled water that were replenished each day. There was a small laptop available from reception for quests use, but when we borrowed it, it lacked power and failed to work when plugged into the mains. Breakfast was the usual full English with a few alternatives. During our stay there was a function taking place which had some fairly loud music, therefore those wanting a quiet nights sleep might want to avoid the weekend.

    Everything was great until we went to bed and found the beds to be rock hard.We both have bad backs so were not expecting the beds to be as soft as ours at home but we did not expect them to be as hard as they were.We hardly slept a wink.I mentioned this to the Receptionist who said all the beds were the same and there was nothing she could do.Needless to say we cancelled our return visit.Shame really as everything else was fine especially the breakfast.

    « Lovely Hotel »

    My husband and I have just returned from a three night break at this hotel and we had a lovely time. It has obviously recently been refurbished and our room was like new. There were lots of nice touches such as a black out blind, good wi fi and Clipper teas. Breakfast was lovely and hot selections are cooked fresh to order. We also ate in the restaurant on two evenings which was very good. I would say that the restaurant would have been quite pricey if we hadn't had a Tastecard. One small criticism was that we went to the spa to use the jacuzzi but we only managed to make it work for a couple of minutes and then it went off and there was no one around to help. Apart from that, 10 out of 10.

    « Amazing hotel , great value for money »

    Stopped here for 1 night . Its in the sticks which is perfect for us. The room was very very clean and the the Spa / Pool was Great. Surrounding gardens beautiful and peaceful. However Reception Staff need to go on a training course !!! Both women that we met (one on reception on the first night and one on Pool reception the following morning ) were sullen rude and unhelpful!!! You would have got a 5 if they had done their jobs properly. Didnt stay for breakfast so cant comment on that.

    « Better than it looks »

    I booked the Leona suite for a night following a weekend in Wales as a half way stop. On approaching the hotel I was very disappointed. It's in an industrial area and doesn't look great from the outside, however the grounds of the hotel, which are at the back and cannot be seen from the roads are absolutely beautiful. The golf course is beautifully maintained and the gardens are lovely. The room was really nice, the bathroom was exceptional but there were just a couple of things that let the experience down. The bathrobes were cheap nylon and could have been better and the room has no air-conditioning and was exceptionally hot. That aside we did have a lovely stay. The staff were very amenable and couldn't of been more helpful, the food was excellent and the sun was shining.

    « Nice but soulless »

    The hotel is nicely kept, a Best Western with all its features: nice, modern decoration, great bedding, perfectly equipped bathroom, etc. But the grounds here are so beautiful that it's a shame that no effort has been put into making the most out of them in terms of service. They have tables and benches outside - yet no service (we wanted to sit outside for a beer one night and not only we had to get the drink ourselves: they did not want to open the door for us to get out!). The restaurant has a nice decor, yet the waitresses were cleaning with chemicals the table next to us while we were having dinner. The indoor pool is in fact part of a gym so there are people doing lanes rather than just relaxing and there are no chairs or sunbeds to relax, and don't even bother with the rest of the "spa" experience - just awful. We even got nasty faces from the staff when asking at reception for the bus timetables to go into Bath one morning. You get the picture: the place should be great given the infrastructure/grounds but they make no effort to be welcoming or provide you with good service. It's a shame, really.

    « Lovely hotel when staying for Wedding »

    My family and I stayed here whilst away for a wedding. The breakfast, restaurant and bar staff were very helpful and friendly to all if us. You could have a swim or have a workout in the gym, which seemed well equipped. The family rooms were an excellent size and included a reasonably sized bathroom with a shower. There was plenty of car parking space and although the Hotel is spread out over a reasonable area it had a welcoming and friendly feel. Would definitely stay again. Would recommend that you book a deal to include some meals as the restaurant could otherwise be a little expensive.

    « On the edge of Bristol, but surrounded by countyside »

    Don't miss out on the characterful pub and a steaming the orangerie! The hotel is a unique layout, but is well maintained, clean and comfortable. Ample parking, just make sure to park close if rain is forecast or remember your umbrella. It might be helpfull to book a table door dinner as the bar and restaurant can get busy not just with residents, but locals too.

    « Some things wrong but overall I liked the place - rating really is a 3+ »

    Mixed feelings about this place. evening food okay and served in a really nice location. Breakfast overpriced. we went to local farm shop after first encounter. Room quite nice although bathroom was small. The shower controls were vertical and very stiff. My wife could not turn them on at all. Not good for older people or those with arthritis or rheumatism - need a rethink. Hotel appears to be in the middle of an industrial estate but has lovely gardens and a small golf course which is a nice surprise

    « A very pleasant hotel with friendly,helpful staff. »

    An attractive ,modern hotel with spacious,well-appointed bedrooms. Breakfast was excellent but we did not dine there. A good quality golf course was attached but I did not have the opportunity to play. The only downside was that some of the bedrooms were overlooked by the on-site road which gave us poor privacy unless the blinds were dropped.

    Had another great experience here having last visited about 4 years ago. Staff were extremely helpful and Katie on reception showed a genuine interest in ensuring all our needs were met. ( we arrived early and she arranged for our rooms to be prepared as a priority so that we could check-in) The place was very clean with some lovely outside space. The swimming pool delighted the children ( and adults!) Dinner was a good standard and they accommodated a brought in birthday cake no problem. Great selection for breakfast with an accompanying level of great service.

    My wife and I stayed for three nights bed and breakfast and were very satisfied, even though the stay was rather expensive. I would have preferred better overall lighting in the bedroom. The bathroom, although rather small had excellent hot water - perhaps too hot, but it was easily controlled.

    « Easy access to Bath without paying Bath premiums »

    A nice little hotel 9 miles (approx) outside Bath. Bit unsure on arrival as in middle of housing estate but lovely grounds out the back to the golf course. Very quiet, despite there being a wedding reception that evening. Very clean, pleasant and a good bus service into Bath that cost £6.50 return per person- cheaper than parking your car for the day, however we did notice there was a park and ride near Radstock too. Great breakfast and easy check out.

    « Surprisingly Good!! »

    I stayed at this hotel for one night during early April on business and have to say that I am struggling to find fault. . . At all!! From the moment you arrive to a warm welcome from the clearly well drilled desk staff to the moment you check out, everything just seems to work here. The check in and check out process was quick and efficient and the rooms well appointed with all that you would expect such as desk to work at, refreshments aplenty, complimentary waters, separate table and comfortable high back chairs. The room I stayed in (229) was extremely clean and faced out across the adjoining golf course so nice and quiet. The bed was clean and comfortable so a good nights rest was had. Free Wi-Fi is on hand also which is a necessity these days I feel and runs at a good speed. The main restaurant had a decent menu but what surprised me the most was how well portioned the meals were as well as being excellently presented. I had space for 3 courses and remained comfortable and not stuffed. A lot of restaurants could learn from this approach for sure!! I stay in a lot of hotels and dine in many restaurants and I have to say that the presentation was high end eatery level (certainly on the night I stayed at least) which really wasn't expected at a Best Western establishment. The waiting staff were polite, efficient and unobtrusive which is exactly what I hope for at any restaurant I use. Breakfast was a similar experience to the evening meal with a young, polite, efficient and unobtrusive waiting team who appeared happy at their work which was a pleasure to witness. Food quality was very good with a good selection of options. Before departure, I needed to utilise a lounge for a brief meeting with a colleague and was offered a comfortable lounge to use and was advised (by who I believe was the Manager) that there were also other lounges I could use if the one provided wasn't suitable!! The lounge was again, well appointed with comfortable couches, chairs and coffee available if needed as well as looking out across the garden and golf course so a pleasant outlook. There is also a health club at this hotel which I didn't use but have no doubt would be managed as well as the hotel itself. All in all, I would be inclined to congratulate the Management team at this hotel as they have a great team of people who make this place a pleasure to reside at. Very well done!!

    « Excellent service »

    Overall a very well priced hotel for 4 nights for my wife, myself and our 1 year old son. Front desk staff were very helpful in sorting out a small problem we had, and to put my bike in safe storage whilst we stayed. Very attentive during our stay. Breakfast (included in our deal) was excellent with lots of variety. Hotel restaurant in the evening was a bit limited (few items on the menu were not available) but although quite pricey the food quality was excellent and staff wonderful with our son. The pool was great to take our son in, and we had good treatments at the attached spa. Only problem was on one night the noise from a wedding in the hotel carried to our hotel room. We mentioned it the next morning and the staff seemed concerned and interested to prevent it happening again.

    « Easter Sunday Lunch. »

    We were visiting family in the area and they booked a table in the Restaurant for the 6 of us to have Sunday lunch. The Cornish crab starter although very tasty was in my opinion a little overpriced for the amount that was on the plate. My husband had the wild garlic soup, which he enjoyed. 5 of us had the Roast beef with lovely crispy roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. My husband had the Lamb, which unfortunately was rather rare and we weren't warned of this when ordering. He ate most of it but didn't really enjoy it. The cauliflower cheese and other vegetables that are served in seperate dishes were very nice indeed. The waiting staff were all very pleasant and very polite. Would we eat there again? Yes we would.

    We stayed the weekend for my niece's wedding and had a wonderful time. Rooms were very comfortable, staff helpful and food excellent. Delightful views over golf course. Very nice spa, gym and pool included without fuss or extra charge. Breakfast was delicious - one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had! Wedding food also top class, with spacious rooms for party. Very relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Would highly recommend, both as hotel and wedding venue.

    The hotel is great, clean and well looked after. The staff were friendly and helpful. The was first class. The only downside was that when we stopped there was a wedding party and it sounded like the dj was in our room. The walls aren't very thick which meant we heard the wedding guest come back turning lights on and off and you could tell what was on tv due to the volume. Our 4 year old son wasn't impressed. Even with this downside I would most definitely stop again.

    Visited on the Valentines weekend. Hotel located in a quiet area and next to a well maintained golf course. Although the weather wasn't nice enough for us to play, there were plenty of indoor activities such as the swimming pool and spa. Would be best if breakfast was provided free since its quite far from Bath.

    « Location, location, vacation ! »

    The couple at the bar were confused, this hotel isn't in Bath ? No it isn't but the location is better than Bath. With easy access to many local Somerset attractions but all the quality of a Bath hotel the countryside location makes it easier to navigate to and where would you put the 9 hole golf course in central Bath ? Lovely appointed rooms, warm and comfortable with modern decor and attentive, polite and cheery staff to help you. The on site spa is a bonus and guests can use that and the gym and pool while they stay. The restaurant has its own bar, but a separate sports bar is available if you need to catch up on the Rugby or Football or just the latest music. Great stay and worth a visit to the restaurant for a lovely choice of dishes and one of the best breakfasts laden with ocal produce that once could ask for.

    Stayed for 2 nights. Clean and tidy beds comfy and had amenities in room.used gym and spa both good but pool poor and cold. J Bar area was cold and bar staff Ashley wasn't very pleasant or helpful. Food ok but pricey for what you got. Restaurant was lovely and breakfast was lovely and pleasant with plenty of choice. Was disappointed as got a raw egg instead of a poached one! For money paid was ok would use again if necessary.

    « Comfortable and friendly »

    A very acceptable base from which to make a day trip into Bath. Not cheap but more reasonably priced than other hotels in Bath itself or closer in. The hotel is about twenty minutes drive from the Odd Down park and ride on the south side of the city centre and from there it's a ten minute bus ride into Bath itself, at a fare of just over £5 for two people. The park and ride is a bit tucked away off the roundabout found at sat nav location BA2 8PA. The entrance and car park to the hotel Is immediately opposite some unattractive warehouses and on a main road, so first impressions aren't great. When you're inside the hotel all of that is soon forgotten and no longer noticeable as views of the garden and small golf course mostly take over. We booked a deluxe double room on the first floor on the garden side. It was spacious and comfortable and complimented by the very modern bathroom. The only slight drawback was a lack of control on the room temperature. There was no central room thermostat if you wanted to edge up the temperature. But the bathroom towel rail blasted out heat most of the time, so opening and closing the door made quite a difference. Dinner was good, delicious steaks, venison and scallops being among items added on the daily specials menu. Good freshly and individually cooked full breakfasts too. My wife enjoyed some good and reasonably priced spa treatments, booked a couple of days in advance. The swimming pool doesn't look particularly enticing compared to some in similar sized hotels, though the gym certainly looked well equipped. The hotel's back bar doubles as the clubhouse for the onsite golf course. It has live music on some Friday nights and a good choice of beer and lager from Sharps brewery on the pumps. It's worth noting that's there's no lift available for hotel guests here (there are only two floors anyway) and it looks like the hotel is often busy with wedding receptions and events. It's probably worth checking ahead if you're concerned that might affect your stay. Overall we enjoyed our two nights here and would certainly return again.

    « Excellent choice of food »

    We had a fantastic week last year at the Centurion and this time stayed for three nights. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful as before and the cleanliness and facilities could not be faulted. This year the wonderful surprise was the choice in the restaurant. The breakfasts always had lots of choice but this year, at both lunch and dinner, as well as the main menu (with choices) there was an additional menu with daily specials. This was excellent for me as I mainly eat fish and there were different dishes to tempt me each day - scallops (wonderful), sea bass (lovely crispy skin) and turbot (moist but a bit small). Well done the new head chef (ex-sous chef). Keep up the good work!

    « very Pleasant stay »

    We based ourselves at this hotel for a sightseeing visit to Bath and surrounding areas. It is about 6 miles from Bath, but an easy journey in, or use the Park and Ride en route. The check in was quick and efficient. Large car park. The room was fairly standard for a Great Western, plenty of storage for clothes etc. free room safe, tea / coffee making facility. Bathroom had bath and powerful shower. Lighting in bathroom a bit dim. Free wifi coverage very good. Only downside to the room was lack of power outlets on top of work surface. The TV was plugged in and in front of the only double socket, so we either had to move the tv to plug kettle in, or use a floor socket. Guests have free use of swimming pool and spa. Very good. Breakfast choice was very good, with several cooked options with flexibility to add or remove items from full English. All staff were very friendly and polite. Didn't have a chance to use on site bar or restaurant so can't comment on those.

    My wife and I stayed three midweek nights recently. We had a ground floor room with good facilities. We made use of the Spa and Pool each day. These are good except the pool is not adjacent to the jaccusi, sauna and steam room. The pool is a good size though. The food in the restaurant is excellent. Breakfast could not be more extensive.

    If you plan on using the spa and booking a treatment double check and triple check your arrangements!! No communication between the two departments!! Turn up for a relaxing day to find there wasn't enough room in the spa for 5 of us when we had rang at least 3 times to confirm booking!!

    Lovely hotel, with very helpful cheerful staff including the cleaner. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed.

The restaurant staff and chef provided the most delightful dining experience, 5 courses of creative delicious food and drink.The spa and gym are very well equipped and a nice swimming pool to relax in afterwards all lead to a wonderful stay.

    « New year/ birthday celebration »

    I don't often write reviews on trip advisor but I felt eager to share my experience. I had organised a trip to Longleat for my sons first birthday, which is New Year's Day. I spent numerous hours maybe even days looking/ researching places suitable for my son.. And this hotel came out best for facilities, distance to Longleat and price. And having stayed two nights at the hotel it did not disappoint. New year can be a funny time of year with limited places to eat open .. And we were aware before our visit of the restaurant being full New Year's Eve & the bar serving food till 6.. We had made other arrangements. This didn't bother us. We arrived to another couple checking in, giving the receptionist 'a bit of stick' for the above, but they were able to give room service after this 6pm. The receptionist was pleasant and extremely helpful. All the staff were beyond accommodating and friendly. Our room was clean and had everything we needed for ourselves and our son. The bed was comfortable. We weren't disturbed atall.. Even though it was New Year's Eve. The breakfast was full of fresh produce. My husband had a full breakfast, which he enjoyed and I had a continental breakfast. There was many local pressed juices, yoghurts, fruit etc We were never left waiting or asking for a thing.. The staff would approach is always first to ask if we wanted anything or recommended something or anything to help us or make things easier. We felt relaxed and comfortable at all times. The pool was warm, and our son enjoyed himself! There was a number of other small children using the pool too which was lovely. This hotel really does seem to accommodate families well. We had eat at Jays bar new year day in the evening .. And I was hungry but didn't fancy anything of the menu .. Not because there wasn't much choice .. Because there was.. Just after Christmas I wanted something plain & simple .. So I asked for chicken & vegetables .. And I was served that .. With a lovely sauce .. And it was wonderful! Probably the tastiest chicken breast I have had for a while!! We have both already said we would like to return. For value for money, and purpose of this trip it suited all our needs... It was beyond my expectations. Could not recommend this place enough!! Just hope we return soon!!! I've left feeling relaxed and have a wonderful memory of our sons First Birthday!!

    Never judge a book by it's cover, and this applies to the Centurion Hotel, as inside, the décor and presentation as well as the helpfulness of the staff, outdo what on the outside appears bland and standard fare. The only draw back, the leisure facilities which are due an upgrade.

    Room very poorly lit. Extremely noisy despite having porter try to stop noise from fan upstairs. Awake all night, fan eventually went off at 6.30a.m. Nowhere to put anything in bathroom. Presentation of meals very poor, cold food including breakfast. Unable to have scrambled eggs. Fish overcooked at dinner. Service non existent at breakfast and dinner time, took ages for meals to arrive and long wait in between courses. Very uncomfortable chairs in bedroom, too low had to sit on the bed. View from window was the car park. Bed very comfortable and sheets,duvet. Room and all areas of hotel spotless.

    « Nice event but disorganised, over-charging and pestering us for extra payments left a bad taste »

    I went to a party at this hotel and it was fun, food was good and duty staff friendly and helpful. My bad experience was related to charging. There was a discounted room rate that we were told we would be eligible for but that guests would have to book separately themselves. As soon as I was told this I promptly booked two rooms online. Meanwhile the hotel had taken a provisional booking list with my name on it. It was pointed out at least twice to the hotel that my booking was for the rooms on the list but they failed to make the reconciliation in numbers or to let me know about the discount. Not only did I pay full price but they then tried to charge me for the extra rooms. They pestered my family with phone calls and emails which I did not appreciate. When I finally got to speak to the manager, who appeared to have instructed his staff to collect payment and then gone on leave, it became clear that there had been a breakdown in communication on their side because the event coordinator had left the company. He did agree not to charge for the extra rooms (kind of him) but said he would not apply the discount because I had booked online. At no point was I told not to book online, The manager gave a reason that my booking online was because the hotel would have to pay commission....however if the events coordinator had made the correct reconciliation there would have been time for me to cancel and rebook, as my booking was 100% refundable. Basically my impression was that the hotel just wanted to maximise their revenue and not take responsibility for their errors. They spent the best part of a week pestering for payment then avoided talking to me when I wanted to complain. It's a shame, we had a good event, I thoroughly enjoyed the evening but being pestered and being over-charged was not part of the deal!

    After an enjoyable stay a couple of years ago, I decided to rebook as I had to return to the area. Last time there was some building work being done, but all is finished now and everything appears complete. The food is very high quality...especially breakfast. The pool is a reasonable size, but six of us trying to complete as many "lengths" (it's a square pool!) as possible was a little cramped. I'll definitely return.

    What a great find for business travellers. The room was clean and well equipped with a high quality hostess tray and nice products in the bathroom. The hotel has a spa, pool and gym. Most importantly, they do room service which is really nice when you're travelling solo and tired. There was a good choice and the food was delicious. They were considerate and brought the pud 20 minutes after the main. I felt like I was getting really good value for money and an excellent service. Also nice that the TV was a good size. All is all - very impressive for the price.

    We were greeted by a rather grumpy looking woman, after arriving at 6pm we went straight down to dinner, we found the food was over priced and the atmosphere very depressing. We had a small drink each and a main and it came up to 40 quid!! We were offered a newspaper and wasn't told there would be a charge. After leaving I was then noted that I had been charged for smoking in my room and that they had taken £75 out of my account.. I am a non- smoker, therefore this charge is ridiculous! Brining the grand total for 1 night stay to £225!! Umm should have booked the Ritz!!

    The Hotel has good facilities with a bar, restaurant and swimming pool, and our room was comfortable, clean and quite spacious. However, we were above the laundry and our sleep was disturbed by machine noise, which was a shame as the bed was comfortable and the area is quiet otherwise. I would recommend asking for a room facing the golf course. Apart from this, it was a nice Hotel and staff were friendly. It is rather isolated. Midsomer Norton is a mile away, where you will find the nearest pub - The White Post Inn - a real ale pub popular with locals, but I wouldn't want to eat there.

    Clean, tidy,excellent staff,good food,easy parking,spacious and comfortable bedroom. Jays bar seemed to be the local pub, very few seats due to vast outside custom, I would prefer a hotel which has a bar specific for guests. On our day of arrival we were informed no guests would be able to eat in the bar or the restaurant until after 8.30 due to a wedding. We found this shocking-no warning until we asked to book a table! The only way to get something to eat was to order from the room service menu, this we did and had to pay a "tray service" charge! The pool was acceptable but not quite what we thought it be after looking at it on-line. Overall a place we would stay again but check that they don't have a wedding on. We stay often at Weymouth(Rembrandt), and although not a "plus Hotel" we find it far superior. They do a fantastic Buffett breakfast there, whereas The Centurian do it to order-not as good.

    Very impressed with this hotel. Staff very helpful. It's a long walk from reception to the restaurant and bar but this meant the room that I had near reception was very quiet. Probably the best night's sleep I've had in hotel for a long time. The restaurant food was excellent although a bit on the expensive side. £22 for steak, chips and salad. The peppercorn sauce was delicious though. The room was spacious and well equipped. Everything in the hotel was spotlessly clean. Although I didn't get to try them out the swimming pool and gym looked very appealing. Maybe next time. I recommend this hotel and will certainly stay again.

The grounds are kept immaculate and the hotel itself offers a great base to explore the West Country areas. The only tiny gripe would be that the Lounge/Bar only offered one vegetarian option on their menu and when that was ordered they didn't have it and we had to accept the alternative - more veggie choice would be good, however the vegetarian breakfast offering was excellent. All the staff were friendly and professional, the on-site spa was a treat and the communal areas are comfortable and inviting. We would definitely choose this hotel again if we were in the area.

    « Should have been better »

    We used the hotel for visiting Bath. It was a cheap way to do this. We used our Tesco points converted to BW vouchers. It's close to Bath and the park&ride so we didn't have to use the expensive car parks in the city. The hotel was great, the food was good for both breakfast and evening meals and I cannot fault the staff at all. Very friendly and helpful. However, a lot of reviews have already said the same thing and that's 'WEDDINGS'! We stayed Sunday to Tuesday and to be honest we knew it was a popular wedding venue before we stayed but didn't expect there to be any weddings on on these days. Our room was far enough away from the main function room that we couldn't hear the music but all night we had guests walking up and down the corridors shouting, singing and generally being disrespectful of other hotel guests who were probably trying to sleep. This took the edge off for me, hence the score because without the disturbance I would have scored 5/5.
