John & Elaine are two of the kindest and warmest people we've met! We loved staying at Rose Bank Guest House, everything was excellent. We will absolutely stay there again - we've even named the two brass frogs after ourselves, that sit above the fireplace :) John & Elaine thank you so much again for all you did for us... More

Arriving at Rose Bank is feels like a home from home. The hosts John and Elaine are so welcoming and have such a wonderfully organised B&B that my wife and I feel totally relaxed the minute we walk through the door. The rooms are really clean and have all the creature comforts for a perfect holiday. If you like a... More

Room 4 has a stunning view. John and Elaine were extremely helpful. Our room was lovely and clean with a beautiful view. Breakfast was delicious. Off-street parking free of charge. Really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed 3 nights in this B&B last week, every thing said about this place is so true, John and Elaine are so helpful, the place is spotless, so much attention is paid to detail, We have not stayed at a better B&B anywhere,

Elaine cooked us some lovely breakfasts. We sat by the window in the dining room and watched the everyone going about their buisness.Good spacious car park. A... More

This was our 5th visit to Rose Bank in the last almost two years. For us it ticks all the boxes that an excellent B & B should be; 1. Convivial hosts in Elaine & John who know the area well. They are full of recommendations for places to visit, eat and, numerous walks. 2. Freshly cooked breakfasts to set... More

Stopped over for a couple of nights on our way back from Cornwall and we were delighted with both the friendly reception which we received and the b & b itself. Parking was a bit tricky with a sharp turn into a steep rise but otherwise there was plenty of space and it was well off the road. Breakfasts needed... More

My partner and I visited Porlock on a whim on 20/06/15 and stayed in room no. 4 at The Rose Bank. If you're not careful, you may miss the car park (sharp turn on the left when driving from Minehead, just before approaching the Rose Bank). This place was truly the best B&B I've stayed in. John and Elaine greeted... More

Had a warm welcome from John early in the morning ,No problem leaving car in car park while we strolled round village with dog until room was ready. Room very comfortable and really well equipped..Breakfast was a pleasure to eat plenty of choice. All in all a very nice stay.
