Just returned from a Weekend in Minehead . We stayed at The Parks Guest House which was as good as any 5 star hotel. The owners Bryan and Sarah were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had a ground floor suite which was excellent and had everything you needed and much more. The Parks is only five... More

Friendly host, nice twin room at the top of the house, good sized en-suite. Lovely breakfast, worth staying for that alone, ample parking and very close to town, would stay here again if visiting the area.

It is lovely, just as an electricity provider tried to blackmail me with a TA bad review as I was not prepared to listen to his sales pitch, especially as we are TPS registered, you send in a great review which makes it all worth it. Your comments are lovely and well appreciated Have a great Christmas Bryan at The... More

Great place, helpful hosts, nothing too much trouble. The breakfasts were great, tasty and home produce used. It is well situated near the town and we walked to the town center in the evening. Rooms comfy with everything you need. A+++++++

This is the first time we've stayed here and we can highly recommend it. Very friendly and helpful owners/staff. The breakfasts were delicious with lots of choice. The Parks is in a very good position as regards the town - with in a five minute walk and very close to other towns as well.

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.
