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.

The Rose Bank Guest House is one of those places where you feel at home from the very first moment. John has given us a warm and lovely welcome although we've arrived much later than expected. Our room had a beautiful view towards Bristol Channel, the ensuited bathroom was well equipped. The breakfast has been one of the best we've... More

My wife and I stayed here in late May 2015 for one night; we had never before explored this area of Somerset and wanted something in Porlock itself. The property is very straightforward to find and is situated on the 'main' road running through the village [but don't think it is at all noisy - the road is very quiet... More

We arrived in Porlock not knowing where we would stay and called into Rose Bank where we were warmly welcomed. The room was very clean and comfortable, the bed was huge, the wi-fi fast and the shower even had a back massager! Breakfast was really good with generous portions. The couple who run the guest house are very nice and... More
