My husband told me he was taking me to the Porlock for my birthday, somewhere we have visited many times in the past. The surprise was we were staying at the Lorna Doone Hotel, somewhere we had never stayed at in the past or even considered and was obviously a little bit sceptical. It was truly a wonderful surprise -... More

Stayed two months ago for two nights now back for four and will go back as soon as we can. The welcome plus room and food is excellent. The price for what you get is outstanding. Value for money cannot be faulted. It is a Hotel with character and part of the charm is its decor. Thanks to all who... More

We've just returned from a three night stay in this hotel. We were delighted, Porlock is beautiful and quaint, people are lovely and friendly, and our short break was made even better by staying at the Lorna Doone Hotel. Clean, comfortable and the food very good. A big thank you to the owner and staff for being so welcoming and... More

This hotel has a great location right in the hub of the village. Big BUTS though. Although clean, it has awful dated 1980s dusky pink decor, old crusty towels, tatty wooden loo seat,blocked shower. The room was advertised as a double but was two singles pushed together. The electrics in the room were out of date for testing. The staff... More

My room was a little small and could have been cleaner. Otherwise, this was a cosy hotel in the heart of a charming village. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. With a few minor improvements with the rooms and the breakfast this could be a lovely hotel.

Looking for a wifi in Porlock we ended up at the Lorna Doom Hotel. We could easily sit in a seperate room and stay as long as we wished. Of coarse we had dinner at the place in the evening. We had a cheap shepherdspie which was o.k. Not high cuisine but good enough and sure for the price, The... More

We stayed here for a particular event, with few other options, although seemed well rated on other sites. It does what it says on the tin, bed for a couple of nights. Staff/owner extremely pleasant, but all very run down. No parking left when we arrived late afternoon. Room tiny, perhaps because it was en-suite, couldn't bear the thought of... More

My husband and I have just spent 3 nights escaping builders at home. A lovely atmosphere and very friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer to try Toni's delicious food. Left our toothbrushes behind which were very kindly sent back to us. Look forward to our next trip.
