This hotel Is attractive from the outside and gets even better as you enter. Thoughtfully furnished and decorated and very comfortable. Frank is a welcoming host and Joe is an excellent chef. We chose to ' dine in' twice. Then dinners are highly recommended.

My daughter and I were looking for somewhere to stay near Dunster and were very lucky to choose Alcombe House based on its Tripadvisor reviews. They didn't lie. The host was warm and welcoming, the room was spacious and comfortable and everything was absolutely spotless - the cleanest accommodation we've stayed in. The decoration in the room wouldn't normally be... More

Me and my partner decided to get away to Minehead for some peace and quiet and I just don't know where to start. It was such a nice drive from Bournemouth full of scenery and the Alcombe house hotel was so easy to find as it stands out right away. We had a very warm welcoming to the hotel by... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night for Dunster by candlelight. We were greeted by Joe, one of the owners, who was friendly and chatty and showed us to our beautiful, newly decorated room. The room was very pretty, with tasteful country-cottage floral curtains that matched the pillows, and the bed runner, and featured a beautiful period fireplace.... More

Good location, situated midway between Minehead and Dunster. Immaculately presented room, stunning garden, great breakfast and wonderful hosts. All we need now is an excuse to go back to the area so we can stay here again!

Comfortable room. Attentive hosts. G&T in sunny garden. Excellent breakfasts. Perfect for good food in Dunster, and SW path starting in Minehead. Well worth shuttling cars around to stay a second night.

It is a lovely restored 17th century bed and breakfast. The public rooms are lovely and the guest rooms tastefully decorated and very comfortable! The full English breakfast is served... More

Stayed for just one night. Hotel is situated about a mile from both Minehead and Dunster. Stayed in spotlessly clean and well furnished twin room with views of both sea and countryside. Proprietors have done a wonderful job with refurbishment. Lounge and dining room are both beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious with full choice of all the usual. Very pretty... More
