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

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 have stayed here many times before and returned for yet another lovely break. Elaine & John are so friendly & always welcome us back like old friends! Our new dog Angus was welcomed too & enjoyed his treats. The rooms are always clean & the beds very comfy. Breakfast well cooked with a good choice available, really sets you... More
