I am sorry that your experience at the Hunters Inn did not live up to expectation. There are times when the beer lines do need attention and this was just such a time. Unfortunately there ensued a misunderstanding which was totally unintentional and completely out of character. The bar staff are trained to a very high standard and take a... More

We stayed for one night, as part of a trip to walk the south west coast path. Having arrived tired and grubby, we appreciated the swift bar service and then checked into lovely rooms. Room 8 is to be recommended. Our dinner in the bar (we had dogs) was very good, enjoying the same menu as in the restaurant. The... More

A well appointed hotel perfectly located for exploring coastal Exmoor. Friendly, helpful staff have good knowledge of the area's walks and encouraged us to try one of the more challenging cliff walks, which proved most enjoyable. Can't imagine a better place to stay to get the best out of this magnificent area.

We stumbled upon this 'Swiss cottage' hideaway a couple of years ago and sought it out again. It's worth the trip just to get to it via the Valley of the Rocks, the Toll Road through Lee Abbey estate and onto Woody Bay through the 'hanging trees'. We didn't eat this time as the last time had been rather disappointing... More

Had a few hours relaxing in the gardens of Hunters inn with a sensible priced meal and drink.the staff were pleasant and helpful. If you like you like walking you have the national trust right next door to explore and also Sandy Bay is very close a very pleasant area. Great for blowing the cobwebs out
