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 The electrics in the room were out of date for testing.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.

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!!!
