If you want to wake up in Edwardian splendour with the best view in town then this is the place for you. Great breakfast too. Can't wait to visit Minehead again. And soon. There is ample parking at the front and even a full size snooker table.

A group of us friends stayed here last summer for a few days and having enjoyed it so much we came again this summer. Only two of us could make it this time but Naomi remembered us and greeted us like old friends. She and Alex are wonderful hosts and accommodate their guests beautifully; quirks and all.

I can't recommend Marston Lodge highly enough. It's a beautiful period house, elegantly and comfortably furnished with some great artwork in every room. It's lovely and clean with attractive gardens. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, with a comfortable bed, stylish en suite. huge windows affording stunning views of the sea, the town below and the rolling... More

We stayed at the Marston Lodge for one night and our stay was very enjoyable. The bedroom was overlooking Minehead and was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is set up on the hill overlooking Minehead. There was also plenty of choice at breakfast.

Great location on the hill with lovely views. Very friendly owners who were extremely helpful. The home cooked breakfast was fab and the whole stay was warm and welcoming. Rooms were spacious and comfortable..... En suite slightly small and a glass door to shower would have been better than the curtain ( that was the only thing ) A great... More
