Just as well that john and Elaine are superb hosts, as just as we arrived one of our car tires got damaged.Immediately John offered to help put the spare on, then put my wheel in the back of their Volvo and drove us into Minehead to find...

Ok, start with positives, good brekkie, clean, very dog friendly but..... not young child friendly. Went with my 5 year old daughter, sister and 4 year old niece. Before we had even walked through the door the girls were lectured about 'showing respect' for furniture and how that in this house they do not make noise or upset the other... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay in John & Elaine's wonderful B & B. It was very much a relatively short notice booking but, we were accommodated in Room 4 which is right up at the top of the house in the eaves. Smaller than their other rooms but, one we would certainly have again due to... More

Fantastic, John&Elaine, what a fantastic couple will go out of their way to please nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was excellent as were the rooms, will definitely go back again, we were also allowed to take our dog with us so that to us was a bonus.

My wife and I stayed here while on vacation. The room was spotless, very comfortable and had everything you could want. There was a nice tray of candy to nibble on, a wide variety of coffee and tea to brew, and of course a tasty biscuit to go along with the coffee and tea. The shower was wonderful. I especially...

Just returned from a 3 night break in Porlock staying at the excellent Rose Bank guest house. Our room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and our hosts John and Elaine could not be more friendly or helpful. The breakfasts were excellent ! Off street parking was also a bonus

We loved staying here. Porlock is a delight, and close to a range of beautiful walks. Rose Bank Cottage certainly enhanced the whole experience - our room was pleasant with comfortable beds, there was easy off-street parking, breakfasts were excellent, and our hosts were friendly and helpful but never intrusive. Just lovely. (There is some traffic noise during the day,... More
