Great place to stay -
We stayed for one night in Feb 2020 and were very impressed. Booking online was simple and easy. The prices were clear and competitive. On arrival there was space to park off the road. We were welcomed on arrrival and everything explain and any thing we wanted we only had to ask. The decoration of the rooms and common areas was modern and to a very good standard. The rooms themselves were well equipped. The breakfast was really good with plenty available. Great place and very friendly hosts. Would highly recommend it.
Thank you so much RX

I last stayed at Maplestone about 7 years ago, and things have changed, including the owners. The renovation was well thought out, and the ‘New look’ seems to have been a complete success. Comfortable room and shower room, breakfast was excellent. 10 out of 10!
Thank you so much David.Hope to see you again when you are in Somerset .

Couldn\'t have been better -
Staying at Maplestone Hall felt like a real extravagance but was exceptionally good value for Monday. From faultless decor and great comfort, the attention to detail was amazing and I can't think of anything more that the hosts could have provided to make our stay better.All the things you hope for were there and some unexpected (bath robes, fridge, wine glasses). There was an exceptionally good home cooked breakfast and the whole atmosphere was welcoming. Thank you so much for having us to stay!
Thank you so much it means a lot to us.Hope to see you again RXX

Ideal overnight stop -
I stayed in the cottage adjoining the main house. Arrived at 6'ish so was able to work for an hour, as the wi-fi was great. Easy walk into town to grab some food, watch a bit of TV in the comfort of the lounge and then a really comfortable bed (most important!). Only issue was, as an early riser (5.30am, and I appreciate that isn't normal), the heating didn't kick in until 6.30am, and it was a bit chilly but that doesn't alter the fact this is a 5-star place to feel at home in a lovely location.
Hi Matt thank you for taking the time too write this. So glad you had a good sleep. I hope if you stay again you will be able to have breakfast.Yes sorry about your chilly start ! Yes the heating comes on at 6.30.sorry. Anyway Happy Christmas .R

We went to stay at Maplestone Hall to celebrate several family birthdays and we were so happy with our choice of accommodation.

Extremely comfortable beds and fabulous breakfast.As a bonus, it is really close to Kilver Court.

Period property with tons of character. -
We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and help was given to carry bags. The rooms are very comfortable, full of character and have been tastefully decorated.Breakfasts were copious in their choice and portions and the cooked breakfast tasty beautifully presented.The garden, though small, is full of interest and colour.Mobility could be an issue for elderly as there are small steps throughout the garden and in some of the rooms. Stairs to the first floor are relatively steep. Some may see this as adding to the character of the building, It is 16th century.All our party agreed that Maplestone Hall was a great place to stay for comfort, food and location and the hosts were both welcoming and anxious to ensure our stay was a pleasant one.
Dear Mr Green, so pleased you had a pleasant stay, your kind words are very much appreciated.As you know we are listed, and it\'s very difficult changing things, but we do endeavour to improve whenever we get the chance, we have taken your comments to heart and anything we can do to make things easier will be looked into.We hope to welcome you here again in the future.

Wonderful stay -
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 !

Empfehlenswerter Aufenthalt -
Am Rande der kleinen Ortschaft Shepton Mallet, daher sehr ruhig. Lokale sind in kÃ¼rzester Entfernung erreichbar. Sehr freundliche Gastgeber. Beim FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck werden alle WÃ¼nsche erfÃ¼llt. Unser Zimmer - mit eigenem Zugang von auÃŸen - war nett eingerichtet und ausreichend groÃŸ. ParkmÃ¶glichkeit vor der HaustÃ¼re.Guter Ausgangspunkt fÃ¼r AusflÃ¼ge in allen Entfernungen und Richtungen (Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge, Bath, Bradford, Avebury, Stonhenge, Stourhead und alles was wir leider nicht mehr sehen konnten).Maplestone kÃ¶nnen wir wÃ¤rmstens weiterempfehlen.

Reviewer:Hilary S | Sun 7th Jun 2015 | 4 years ago
We stayed for two nights to attend a wedding. The accommodation was beautiful and comfortable. The Sinclair's couldn't do enough to help us and made sure our stay was perfect - including offering us paracetamols the morning after the wedding! Breakfast was absolutely delicious. If we are ever in the area we will definitely head back there and we recommend the b and b to anyone.

We spent two nights in the cottage which was perfect.The setting is idyllic and we couldn't have asked for more perfect hosts than Donald and Gill who made us feel very welcome.The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was superb with top quality ingredients and fresh eggs from the chickens who roam the garden during the daytime.We would highly recommend Maplestone as a perfect place to explore the surrounding beautiful countryside.

My wife and I stayed from 14th November 2014 until 17th November 2014.We has previously stayed in May 2013 for a local wedding.My wife and I absolutely love this place. So much character. We stayed in the Oak room (largest of 3 rooms)and did not want for anything.Donald &Gill are the most wonderful host/hostess and could not have done any more to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Plus, of course, breakfast was enough to get you through the day.We will be returning again and again and would highly recommend 'Maplestone' to all.

Very comfortable stay -
We only spent one night at Maplestone, but it was a very comfortable one. The situation is very quiet and there was no noise at night. The room was very tastefully decorated and spacious. We really liked the country style garden and the bantams strutting around it. Our only problem was, we considered the bedding to be far too thick for the time of year.If we need to return to Shepton Mallet, we would certainly stay there again.
