A very comfortable guest house with everything provided that you could wish for. Reasonable rates for such comfort; excellent breakfast and the owners, John and Elaine couldn't be more helpful with local advice. Very well set in the middle of the village; I can't speak highly enough of it.

I recently stayed at the Rose Bank for one night by myself whilst attending a Kendo event in Minehead. Although I only stayed one night, I had a really great experience and wouldn't hesitate to return again with my Wife for a holiday. The Rose Bank was clean and tidy throughout. My room was comfortable with a great bathroom, which... More

Lovely B and B, room clean although quite small. Great shower and facilities. The best though is that John and Elaine could not be more accommodating and the breakfasts are fantastic; really hot freshly cooked local produce. Pollock too is lovely with amazing ambience, walks and scenery.

charming and most helpful hosts, very comfortable if quite compact rooms, excellent breakfasts and superb position in the centre of Porlock. I suppose a guests' lounge would be nice but this B and B is excellent value for money and overall extremely comfortable.

We stayed here with my parents and were very impressed. The rooms were very comfortable and and well provisioned with tea, coffee, bathrobes etc. The guest house is right in the middle of Porlock and only 3 minutes away from an excellent pub. What really makes this place special are the couple running the place, as they make great efforts... More

Simple, clean and excellently run by a very friendly and helpful couple. The beds were particularly comfortable (though the rooms a little warm for my liking). Excellent selection available for breakfast, and the full English was well-cooked and delicious.

We have just returned from our second stay in John & Elaine's wonderful B & B. This stay was just as superb as our first as mentioned in my review of 14th October 2014. We specifically asked for and, were accommodated again in Room 4 which is right up at the top of the house in the eaves. The cooked... More

had a one night stay over and both my wife and myself both agreed that we would have no hesitation in staying here again. Everything you look for in an overnight stay was both met and exceeded lovely rooms friendly owners competitive prices make this the ideal stay over whether it would be for one night or longer.
