very enjoyable

We had a very pleasant stay. The room was good and spacious, but could do with a bit of up dating. That did not bother us, the stay was nice. Read more

Friendly and professional

The two days I've spent at the Preston were smooth, with a late checkin without any problems and accomodation with good value for the money. I was able to work from the room with free wi-fi and enjoy the company of very friendly staff at the breakfeast. Read more

Likes?
Private car parking and free wi-fi were a plus. The really late checkin was also not a problem. The breakfeast was very good with excellent choice and variety. The room was big and had a desk for work

Lovely stay, very welcoming

We stayed at The Preston for a couple of nights to attend a wedding in a nearby venue. The room was a perfect size and despite being on the road, not noisy at all. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our breakfast requests (vegetarian). We would definitely stay here should we wish to visit Yeovil again. Read more

APPALLING !

1950s type chalet. Cold. Most basic bathroom. Not informed stay would not be in main hotel. Poor facilities. Freezing cold during the night. Could not wait to leave. Would certainly dissuade anyone from staying at this 'Hotel'? Read more

Response

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and have chosen to air your dissatisfaction by way of a review rather than bringing your concerns to our attention at the time.We pride ourselves in providing friendly customer service, great food, and a warm comfortable room, at very reasonable prices. We cleary did not meet your expectations but fortunately this is not the perception shared by the majority of our guests as demonstrated by the numerous positive reviews found here and Tripavisor etc.
