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

We stayed in room 3 which was most comfortable and had stunning views.The views from our table in the conservatory dining room were also stunning, taking in the garden, the hills in the distance and across Porlock...

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

We returned to The Oaks this May and were delighted to find that everything was as good as we remembered it. We had a delightful corner room with a supremely comfortable bed, sitting area and a sparkling bathroom with fluffy towels and bathrobes. Wonderful dining room with spectacular views and sunsets and beautiful food. We had super Roast Venison for... More

We have slept in room n° 7 on 8 august 2013, and it has been unforgettable for the lovely atmosphere and gorgeus view on the bay. Tim the owner is charming and very hospitable, and the dining room where you also have a delicious breakfast is a "must" for a glorious stay and awakening !

My wife & I spent our honeymoon here in 1972. Much has changed! The current Oaks really is a 5 star experience in every way. Friendliness without intrusion. Excellent decor & comfortable rooms. The 4 course dinner was fantastic & breakfast a treat. Worth every penny.
