'You cannot help but warm to the ways of the Soar Mill Cove: fresh milk
is offered at the front desk, there is no minibar to tempt, no noisy
disco to disrupt your sleep, no noisy traffic to keep you awake – just
good old-fashioned Makepeace and quiet.'
Emma Bromidge, The Lady July 2008
'Soar Mill Cove is a small family-run hotel where the emphasis is on
warm hospitality, good food and excellent service You feel at home
immediately, with small touches such as fresh milk in your room, your
own private patio and friendly chat from owner Keith Makepeace – a
welcome change from some of the bigger chain hotels.'
Sonja Cox, Aberdeen Press and Journal, June 2008
'On the edge of the Mendip Hills: a traditional façade, a funky décor,
excellent food and no end of choice behind the kitsch-with-style bar.
The food, which has good local credentials, is seriously tasty and
Alastair Sawday, Special Places Pubs & Inns of England and Wales
'This is within walking distance of the famous caves and blends a
contemporary setting with a lively atmosphere and a serious approach to
food that includes using top-notch local produce.'
Elizabeth Carter, The Times Knowledge, July 2008
'Chef Ashley Rainbow lives up to his name with delicious
