We stayed in a twin room which had comfortable beds, good shower and was warm but there's not much room. This didn't matter to us as only staying a night. It's perfectly located in Porlock and was quiet. Breakfast was good- usual Scottish Breakfast. Owners were friendly and accommodating.

We stayed with Elaine and John to see in the New Year and had a wonderful few days. As regular visitors to Porlock, it is always great to discover yet another dog friendly B & B. Delicious breakfast too!

As regulars to Rose Bank we know what to expect regarding the superb hospitality, comfortable rooms and, breakfasts to set you up for the day. Nothing has changed in this respect so; Elaine & John's home will remain top of our list when looking for a break away. The difference this time was that we decided to stay over the... More

My husband and I stayed with John and Elaine for the Dunster by Candlelight weekend this week. This was one of many visits we have enjoyed at Rosebank. We are always made very welcome. The rooms are very well-appointed with very comfy beds. Food is locally sourced and always cooked beautifully. We have already booked our next visit for 2016,... More

This was a very lovely B&B in such a wonderful location which I had booked for 3 nights. John & Elaine were very welcoming hosts that made me feel at home. The breakfast was always fresh each morning and very tasty (Thanks to Elaine). I like the way the breakfast organised as you filled in the menu card the night... More

We stayed at Rose Bank Guest House last weekend, and received a very warm welcome from our hosts John and Elaine. From the minute we arrived John came straight out to the car to assist us with our luggage and we were shown to our room which was a lovely comfortable and cosy double room with en suite. The shower... More

A delightful stay; an initial very warm welcome from John and Elaine, the owners. The bedroom was clean, spacious and beautiful, with such a comfortable bed which offered the best night's sleep. Plenty of lovely tea and biscuits in the rooms (not just cheap rubbish, was actual proper tea). All toiletries you could need were available, we could have turned... More
