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.

Staff friendly and welcoming .The bedrooms small,but clean. We ate in the hotel the first night,the food was very good and the menu was varied.Very good English Breakfast. Hotel is in the High Street,so near pubs restraunts and shops. Porlock Weir a mile or so away,overall a good base for staying and visiting the local areas.

Stayed here for one night, double room with breakfast priced at £65 which is good value. Room size is wee bit small but this is an old building, parts of the pub seem bit cluttered and felt like walking through someones house! Breakfast was good size portion and quality with locally sourced produce. Parking is available but you'd need to... More

We endorse other reviewers who thank Toni and Mo for the incredible warmth of their hospitality - and the excellent Full English Breakfast. The hotel is looking dated (hence 4 stars instead of 5) but at the price we paid we could not complain at all! It was our first time to Porlock and we were amazed how friendly everyone... More

Thank you for a peaceful, pleasant and well fed week end. This is a very friendly placel with the old fashion welcome and comfort of a rural hotel. The food was excellent and the staff were more than happy to meet all our needs. See you again!!!

Stayed for one night at short notice. Room was pleasant. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was thoroughly enjoyable. Although in the Main Street the hotel was very quiet and peaceful. The surrounding countryside was lovely and I enjoyed my drive through the moors.

We stayed here after booking late and were impressed with the value for money. The breakfast was spot on, the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was fab. The surrounding area is beautiful and there are some lovely walks, not least to Porlock Weir. We also journeyed to Lynton and Lynmouth which are both stunning. The road over... More

We booked in to Lorna Doone Hotel as a base for a couple of days. The rooms were comfortable without being over the top. The staff (Toni and Mo) were very friendly and helpful offering suggestions for our stay. The meals were exceptional both breakfast and dinners with the second night (Sunday) being the first BBQ the hotel had tried... More

Booked at short notice as Anniversary surprise. Easy to find, lovely room was spacious and quiet even though facing the main street. Welcome was excellent and everyone was really friendly. Food was well cooked and there was a good choice including lots locally sourced. We enjoyed the beer and cider. Really good value in a central location. Everyone in Porlock... More
