The Bath House Hotel: Chard, Somerset - owners Ron and Karine have done a fantastic job in decorating their relaxing, homely rooms with a beautiful mix of modern and traditional decor. Their restaurant is a firm favourite of Hannah and James and having been lucky enough to get a guided tour of the bedrooms by the lovely Karine, we were incredibly impressed with the hotel! Do not be put off by the fact that the hotel is above the restaurant - noise and cooking smells cannot be detected within the upstairs area at all! We highly recommend this excellent hotel and restaurant.
