Stayed here with a group for two nights D.B&B. which was well worth the price and everyone was pleased with the visit. Ideally sited in the heart of Exmoor with walking routes close at hand. I can recommend Exmoor Forest for service and value for money. We shall return when we next visit Exmoor.

This is a very friendly dog hotel which is important to us. Hotel its self is good. Outside appearance looks as if some maintenance is required especially at the entrance to the accommodation. Rooms are spacious and comfortable although our room no 2 lacked hanging space for clothes and the toilet facilities lacked a proper shower (hand held only) other... More

Weekend break with a friend. Fantastic position with excellent walking. The owners were friendly and informative without being intrusive. The food was very good and the room was comfortable. I plan to return in the future

I can't recommend The Exmoor Forest Hotel enough. From the friendly and helpful staff, the delicious food and the way that my dog was treated I was able to enjoy a most needed weekend break. It was great to be able to go on fantastic walks without having to drive.

We stayed overnight at this lovely Inn in the heart of Exmoor and wished we had stayed longer. Our accommodation was charming , very comfortable and spotless. Our host was just the right mixture, attentive but not intrusive. Our evening meal was excellent and extremely good value. Breakfast was also excellent with a good choice and freshly cooked.

Wonderful food very clean great staff only drawback was other dogs. Unfortunately it was raining and we had dogs with us as well but ours were not allowed in the breakfast room soaking wet. We didn't really appreciate wet dogs shaking over us and our food. Although hotel not to blame perhaps a sign requesting other owners consideration in eating... More

Outstanding and our two golden retrievers Bill and Ben didn't have to be apart from us at any point of the stay. Lovely rooms and very friendly staff. Excellent for dog walks, walking, cycling and mountain-biking. The menu was out of this world too with hearty portions.

An excellent Family owned/run hotel which is superbly clean, and offering good food and refreshments in the heart of Exmoor. Welcoming and full of character - we really do hope to come again. Good walking on the doorstep - including the "Two Moors Way", and central to get to the attractions of Exmoor, including the coastal path and West Somerset... More
