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

Chanced upon this lovely hotel via LateRooms or similar... Wanted a short notice night away with some friends to celebrate a birthday and we couldn't have been happier. Rooms were clean and very comfortable and the staff most helpful and welcoming. Food was superb, in particular the local Venison fillet special which I enjoyed immensely with some good wine from...

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
