Good food, good wine, excellent service despite a busy bank holiday weekend. A very interesting hotel full of oddities and interesting artefacts. An honesty bar after 11pm, a cinema room full of sofas and a library of DVD's, what more could you ask for?

It is a fabulous place to stay,although we paid for a superior room which i don't think had anything extra for the money. However there were no staff available most of the time, bar was only open for a couple of hours and no dinner available. This hotel could be fantastic if only it was open! The Mary Celeste had...

Stayed at this bed and breakfast for a long weekend break. The staff seemed flustered, it is advertised as bistro, restaurant and hotel and yet, it is shut all day Sunday and Monday, so even as a resident, you cannot get a drink or something to eat, even though you have paid a supplement to stay on a weekend. Julian,... More

My wife treated me to a break at this hotel for Christmas and we enjoyed a lovely short break. Our room was perfectly comfortable although it was one of the ones that had yet to be refurbished - this was not a problem! The restaurant was not open when we were there so we ate at their sister hotel "Millers... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Ron, Lyndsey and staff were very friendly, helpful and gave excellent service throughout the stay. We dined in the Bistro on the Saturday night and had a very good meal. Our compliments to the chef. We will certainly be returning.

I stayed at Millers Bistro in December. We had a great night in the bar and restaurant and a good nights sleep in a terrific, well furnished, clean and stunning room. I'm trying to get some time off work in March to head back to Porlock and enjoy the stunning area and beaches. I'll definitely be staying at Miller's Bistro!!

It was New Year's Eve and we decided to go for it and find out for oursevles and lucky we did! We had a very good meal and the staff were all very... More

We booked a table for a meal on 10/12/2013, on our arrival there were a few people enjoying a drink in the bar, we had a drink and then went to our table. The menu does not have a great choice, 5 dishes including one vegetarian dish. Service was ok , about 9.35pm the barman came and asked us if... More
