Very friendly and welcoming place, nothing too much trouble for the owners. Our room was very well equipped and the bed was supremely comfortable. Excellent breakfast made with real quality ingredients. Scrambled egg really moist, top quality bacon and sausage, making the meal a real treat. Certainly the best B&B breakfast we have had in the last fifteen years. A... More

Clean and comfortable in a spacious room. I parked on the road as the parking at the back was full but that was OK. Owner very helpful and looked up bus times for me which saved me an expensive taxi fare. Cold milk provided in a flask for tea and coffee. Breakfast was very tasty. Good location with just a... More

Second time we've stayed here, top facilities and hospitality. Quality breakfast and all localy sourced. Feels more like being invited to stay with a friend than in a guest house, ideally placed near town and with the open expanse of Exmoor just up the road.

Good location with ample parking. Friendly welcome with advice on where to eat. Handy for West Somerset Railway and Dunster Castle. Go on the railway first as your tickets get you 25% of the entry to Dunster Castle

This B&B was very comfortable with lovely touches such as chocolates and a tray of teas and coffees and some toiletries. The owners are lovely and the breakfast excellent with lots of choice - English style. Handy for the town, but far enough out to be quiet.

We stayed for 3 nights. Our hosts were very welcoming. We soon settled in. Facilities in the room were certainly well above average. The breakfast choice was excellent. Bryan's seasoned mushrooms were very tasty along with his locally sourced sausages. Wide choice of cereals and local preserves. The Parks is ideally located for the town centre. The owners recommended a... More

We stayed for 2 nights on a weekend at the beginning of September. "The Parks" is well situated in Minehead, a short walk from the main street at the quieter end of town on the road towards Porlock. There is plenty of car parking at the rear, reached through a small lane on the town side. Sarah was very welcoming... More

Central location for the town and front, and also an excellent centre for all of Exmoor. Good spacious car parking off a quiet lane. Wonderful breakfast with a wide range of choice (especially for a b and b.) Unfortunately, Sarah and Bryan were absent during our stay, and only bumped into Sarah on our last day. Our room (Allerford) was... More
