this is in an ideal location to explore Exmoor. Our room was very small and there was a bath but no shower which is a bit unusual these days. However the bed was very comfortable and the staff were all very welcoming and friendly. I would say that this hotel was good value but one wouldn't want to stay more... More

Ate as a party of four in the restaurant. Overall things were OK, but that was just about it. The surroundings were a tad old fashioned, as were the menu and food. The food came in reasonable time and was piping hot, it was reasonably tasty; the fish (hake was dried out) and one member of our party thought the... More

With narrow corridors, steps stairs, cosy rooms with nooks and crannies, this is a lovely little gem so don't come here expecting a modern bland chain hotel. This place has lots of character and very friendly staff. There is a small cosy sitting room with good wifi for having pre-dinner drinks after a hard days walk and catching up with... More

We stopped off here on a wet and windy day. The couple who run the hotel and restaurant couldn't have been more friendly and polite, really made us feel welcome. The food was ok and having sold out a starter I wanted an inventive alternative was conjured up which was just as nice, Attentive good service.

Have just spent five nights at this charming place nestled in the middle of Porlock. The food including breakfast and evening meals were delicious and cooked by the owner who is one of the most remarkable woman I have met in a long time. It is close to all the wonderful countryside and places of interest and a short walk... More

This is a good B&B: it is centrally located, is very smart and our room was spacious and very nicely decorated and furnished. The car park is round the back but seems to be very small. It was crammed when we got there but there are public car parks close by. We didn't use the bar because, quite simply, it... More

What a fantastic place to stay, great food, accommodation and fantastic management and staff, very friendly and helpful. Book now you won't regret it. The country side and sea front are stunning, excellent walks and great for taking the dogs

Title says it all really. Walked in with my girlfriend. Got snapped at for walking through archway that I apparently shouldn't have done - appeared to be nothing more than the other half of the restaurant/bar area. Very rude.

We decided to eat here as the view through the window portrayed an air of sophistication, unfortunately this could not have been further from the truth. The service from the maitre de was amateur turning potential customers away as he didn't think the kitchen could cope even though there were empty tables in the dining room. The food served was...

A week or two ago we chose to eat at this hotel -since we were staying at a friends cottage in along the way from the hotel. Standalone Restaurant. Four of us arrived and we were cordially greeted by a nice but somewhat quirky american running front of house. We were arriving at 20:15 and the restaurant was empty -... More
