This small, traditional hotel is situated in the middle of the peaceful village with excellent walks & drives all round. Breakfast is basic but tasty. Dinners very good. Old Dog found the stairs a bit steep and next time we'll go for a courtyard room

We have stayed at the Lorna Doone on several occassions and can't fault it. It's not 5 star but then neither are the prices and if you take advantage of the 2 for 1 deal over winter it is an absolute bargain. Toni and Mo make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive, there is a cosy snug... More

We booked this hotel initially because it had a special offer -' two nights for the price of one' in the area we wanted to stay. What a gem it was. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble and for us it was perfect. We stayed in room four which was... More

Stayed here with two small children and my mum for two nights during half term. We stayed in courtyard room 5 which was lovely and clean. The breakfast and evening meal was good. Catered well for the children and the portion sizes were perfect. Beds were comfy

What do you do in a country village for New Years Eve - if you should be in Porlock head for the Lorna Doone Hotel - you will need to book as it is always full then. As usual Toni's food & service were spot-on, thank you to all the staff & with some good wines on offer it was... More

We enjoyed an evening meal, celebrating our first wedding anniversary. The menu was very good,with a nice selection of local foods. The guy working that night was very friendly and assisted us with recommendations. The food was very good,with good portion sizes. We would recommend eating here!

I have stayed at The Lorna Doone many times over the past nine years. Every time it is a joy to return. Situated very close to Bossington Hill and the sea, it is an ideal place to stay for anyone who enjoys hill-walking. The owner,Toni, works very hard to make this a friendly hotel with excellent menu and food quality.... More

I have just spent a long weekend at the Lorna Doone Hotel on the recommendation of my sister, who has stayed many times before. I found it to be a great experience - the hotel has plenty of character and a little quirkiness, my room was nice and clean with a comfortable bed and a small but nice shower room... More

My husband and I only called in for a coffee in the afternoon on a recent holiday to North Devon. Both the Baileys latte and hot chocolate were really lovely - and even better was the warm and friendly service from the landlady... she suggested several days out for us and our little boy and it was a lovely way...
