I think this is disgraceful, calling a member of staff a THING is appalling sexual discrimination, I have a good mind to report this abuse to the police. The young lady on reception apologised for her error when she accidentally charged twice. The manager also apologised and refunded the money immediately As for hairs everywhere, that is an absolute lie.

We stayed here for the second time and it serves our purpose, staff friendly, rooms are fine for a short break, be aware breakfast is cereal etc a surcharge of £2.50 for a full cooked. Not a major issue but not clear when booking. Breakfast was lovely and cooked to order. I will use this hotel again for sure.

Mermaid Hotel is a building with several beds. Nothing more, nothing less. If you want a cheap hotel, then this is the cheapest you will get in Yeovil. However, you get what you pay for. I would not recommend this hotel to someone who expect anything more than that.

I have stayed here on numerous occasions with both work and leisure. It is a typical family run establishment, I have stayed in many places in both Yeovil and around Somerset. I have always found the staff to be polite and helpful. It is without a shadow of a doubt my favourite place to stay in Yeovil. I have stayed...

I am sure like everyone else If I stayed in a hotel and it was as bad as you have described this one to be then I certainly would not have repeated the experience. You're review seems very odd to me. Whilst the hotel has its faults it most certainly is not a dump. It can be noisy I agree....
