This was a last minute find and how delighted we were with the hotel. Upon arrival you are met by either Tim or Anne and you are made to feel very welcome and at home. The room we had at the top was lovely and clean bright and airy. The bed was a good size, water and refreshments provided in... More

What a delightful place and Tim and Anne are so welcoming and really treat you as one of the family. The food is excellent home cooking with a daily change of menu. You couldn't ask for more. We shall be back.

This place has to be seen to be believed, it is truly fantastic. All rooms spotlessly clean, really delicious food. Hosts Tim and Anne are excellent. Tea and cake on arrival and a welcome that makes you feel you are meeting good friends. We have stayed in lots of good places but this one is the best. Our room was... More

This hotel provides a unique experience - we were so well looked after, lovely features like the Roberts radio, beautiful views, and sherry before dinner is fabulous. So comfortable and relaxing. The food is very good and all of the details are considered, the wine list extensive. A definite place to sty if you want peace, to be treated well... More

A hotel which more than lives up to its entry in the Good Hotels Guide. Peaceful and in a very attractive setting The Oaks is the ideal small hotel. It is comfortable and welcoming and owners Tim and Anne Riley go out of their way to make guests feel at home from arrival till it's time for a reluctant departure.... More

I'm sure we will return to this gem of a hotel. It is tasteful with everything just so but not at all stuffy. We had a very friendly welcome and my coeliac diet was no problem at all. I had a choice of gluten free breads, biscuits in the room and Ann assured me she could adapt any items on... More

I stayed at the Oaks Hotel in Porlock with my girlfriend August 2014. Situated at the top of a hill, both our bedroom and the dining room had incredible views of Exmoor and the sea. Our room itself was stunning, with traditional and quality styling, and the bed was very comfortable. The food was fantastic, including incredibly good homemade bread... More

A perfect hotel. Just on the edge of the village and therefore quiet, it is an easy stroll to the shops. The area offers interesting walking country or. if you prefer to drive, Tim has devised some scenic routes around Exmoor. Rooms are clean and comfortable with wonderful sea views, particularly from the dining room. In Summer watch the setting... More
