Overnight Stay - Rating 5/5

From arrival to departure I cannot fault the service and rooms at Maplestone.The room had everything we could possibly need, and more, including dressing gowns and slippers, lot of toiletries, fresh coffee, plenty of biscuits and chocolates.Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and the fresh fruit salad was lush.Nothing was too much trouble - would recommend whole heartedly and will definitely be back.Well done guys the B and B is a credit to you both.Phil and Kay

Best of all - Rating 5/5

We stayed here for a 2 day break in October 2018. The whole experience was amazing from start to finish, the room was really beautifully with a very comfortable bed and the bathroom was sparkling with a great shower. The hosts were really friendly and couldn’t do enough for us and had a great amount of local knowledge. The breakfast was great,if we are ever down this way again would definitely be staying here.


Thankyou so much

Mr - Rating 5/5

Dear Richard,A bit late, but it’s never too late to pay people a compliment and that’s what I want to do.We stayed with you and your partner in your beautiful home at the end of August. I was with a friend of mine and we were going to a gay tantra retreat nearby.You suggested to go and have a look in Wells, and we did. BEAUTIFUL! Magnificent cathedral and there was an (art) market going on as well where we bought some objects. What a perfect start of our stay in the UK.You were so kind and friendly and we absolutely LOVED our stay! Your beds are still talked about, soooo good! The room was lovely, breakfast super, etc.So, can we write a revieuw somewhere on the net? If so, please could you send me a link. I will be very happy to do so.Thank you once again for your hospitality and we will certainly return next year!!With kind greetings,Rob van der Meule


Thank you guys .We enjoyed your stay too

Wonderful stay - Rating 5/5

Richard & Michael,Just a short note to tell you how much we enjoyed our 2 nights' stay at your lovely place in Shepton Mallet ! It was much too short ...We really appreciated the great attention to detail and the well decorated rooms.In our bedroom, everything was well thought of:from freshly ground coffee, a nice selection of tea, a lovely range of biscuits, wonderful mint chocolates to tasteful, homegrown apples...Everything was immaculate in the bathroom:lovely, soft and very large bathtowels, bathropes and even slippers and also a nice selection of toiletries. The round shower cubicle was very comfortable to use (plenty of hot water too!) and it was lovely to have a soft shower mat to step onto when coming out of the shower. Plenty of space to put wet towels too!Our freshly cooked breakfast made a very good start of the day! The choice is amazing... I certainly appreciated the bowl of freshly cut fruit and the smooth Greek yoghurt with honey. The freshly brewed coffee was superb ...Your cottage garden is very pretty and attractive. It's a pity we didn't have some more time to enjoy on your little patio (under the parasol !) with a glass of bubbles !The Dusthole pub was a bit of a downside but the meal on the second evening in the family-run restaurant made up for it ...!!! (Thanks for walking us there, Michael!!)Thanks once again for the warm welcome ! We will certainly recommend you to our friends and we will try and come and stay with you again when we are in the area. It's a pity it's too far away from where we live in Belgium to come over for a weekend ... but still if you have any good offers going, please don't hesitate to let us know !!Congrats with your concept, guys, it is much appreciated ! Keep up the good work !


Thank you so much xx

Superb Accomodation - Rating 5/5

Maplestone Hall is possibly the best establishment we have stayed in. Superb room well appointed and decorated to a very high standard. The breakfast was outstanding and the owners could not do enough for you. If you need a room in or around Somerset and you do not stay here you are quiet frankly stupid.


Thank you so much x

One of the best places I have had the pleasure to stay at. - Rating 5/5

Excellent accommodation and ideal location for town and showground I stayed here for 4 nights. Easy parking and very private. Both hosts made me very welcome, breakfast was excellent and the bed in my room gave me a full nights sleep every night, just what I wanted for my day ahead.

A very recommendable hotel. - Rating 0/5

We stayed in September 2016 at Somerset in Richard and Michaels hotel. Sooo beautiful! The hotel has a very personal touch and the old and new elements in the design of the house have a special atmosphere. The surrounding garden seems almost enchanted. We have on request a very good vegetarian breakfast and the two have surprised us for dinner with delicious, varied vegetarian dishes accompanied by classical music. Richard and Michael are so attentive and sympathetic hosts. Thanks for that! A very recommendable hotel. We warmly greet Richard and Michael in the United Kingdom.


Hello our German friends . Thank you soo much for your splendid review x

Fabulous Bed and Breakfast - Rating 5/5

I stayed at Maplestone Hall with a girlfriend as we were visiting gardens in the area. Richard and Michael were the most marvelous hosts in every way. So kind and such fun. The house has been sensitively and beautifully renovated and is SO comfortable and clean. The garden is magical. We were lucky enough that Richard and Michael cooked the most delicious food for us in the eveningin addition to a divine breakfast which we lingered over before reluctantly setting off home. It is a great area to visit and i could not recommend it more highly. It is a must to visit


Thank you so much it means a lot to us x

Weekend at Maplestone - Rating 4/5

My wife and I had a most pleasant weekend stay at Maplestone. The room and ensuite bathroom were large, comfortably furnished and pleasant. Donald and Gillian were excellent hosts and the breakfast was superb!The only downside was that there were a number of uneven steps to negotiate to reach the room but, otherwise, it could not have been better. We shall return.John & Liz Ware
