We loved staying here. The hotel/pub is very spacious, we used 9 rooms in all including two rooms attached to the back of the hotel. Generally the place could do with some updating and TLC but for us it was great value hiring the whole place. We had a breakfast room, pub room with a real fire, comfy lounge room... More

Stayed July 2013 - Will never go here again! My husband and I stayed here as it was advertised as 'dog friendly', which it was, but I didn't expect such a dilapidated/run down building, and our room was really tatty and old. We thought that maybe they'd put us in one of the worst rooms as we had our little... More

This was a nice location on the edge of Exmoor Nat'l Park and good distance to the Medieval town of Dunster and the Dunster Castle. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast was excellent with a nice menu and buffet bar. The downsides were that the dinner menu was small... More

Well decorated, looks nice although our room, that was under the roof and was cheaper, was not as good as the rest of the hotel. Nevertheless it was a good value. The dinner and breakfast were perfect, but they maybe need more staff because we had to wait a little.

When visiting this beautiful area of the west country you just must try the Dragon House Hotel, we stayed there this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The hotel in run by a husband and wife team, Natasha and Harvey. We checked in with Natasha and were allocated Room 1 which has its own en-suite. First impressions are excellent, every... More

Just spent a delightful week, staying at the cottage attached to the hotel. When we arrived everything was spotlessly clean, and the hotel owner showed us around, we booked dinner the first night in the hotel which was really good. A great central place to stay, hotel owners were more then helpful advising places suitable to for us and our... More

This was exactly the type of hotel we were hoping for, spotlessly clean, really good food, brilliant room and friendly people. We stayed for 3 nights and reckon we were the only people staying who were not dog owners. All those who were, were as friendly as the dogs. The rooms were huge and well equipped, all creaky floorboards and... More

Stayed here for my birthday on an eBay deal. You never quite know what you are getting and wisteria cottage didn't disappoint. Huge beds and quiet setting. Perfect for a few lazy days away to enjoy Exmoor. Would definitely recommend. Management team very friendly and helpful. Family run business and you can see that they are doing all they can... More

Firstly the hotel was well located and although next to the main road, there was very little traffic noise in the rooms. There is ample parking and nice gardens around the premises. The rooms have plenty of character, the floorboards are all over the place and not level, even the bed was at an angle... very quirky. Nice old beams... More

TV did not work was told by owner it was due to atmospherics and he would check it again the next day. I asked if he had checked the other TV’s at the hotel and he said no, later that evening he plugged in a portable that worked. We reported the central light bulb had blown and he said he... More
