My wife and I recently stayed at The Exmoor Forest Inn and enjoyed the atmosphere in this interesting building which has been carefully updated in recent times, without losing the charm of its heritage. The accommodation with friendly service proved to be excellent and the food from an extensive menu all to our liking. It is a family owned business... More

We were a party of 8 travelling on motorbikes. The hosts couldn't do enough to look after us and the evening meal that we enjoyed was great value for money and the food was really nice - I had the beef and ale pie ant it was superb. Would defiantly recommend for accommodation and/or a meal. Motorbike friendly

Our first trip to Simonsbath and we had a great couple of nights here. Super room looking out the front of the pub. Food wonderful and staff really helpful. Had a delicious packed lunch as we headed out for a car-free walk in the woods. Beautiful day, lots of bird song and no noise to be heard. Definitely will come... More

We booked one night. Overall it was very good - the room (Room 4) was small but clean and the bed comfortable. The food was very good. The selection of wines wasn't great but we still found something we liked. The breakfast in the morning was very good.

Thanks to Janice and Nick for another fabulous visit. Our expectations were met in every way and we could not have asked for a more friendly and cheerful team. The hotel is a wonderful escape nestled in the heart of the stunning national park. Great base for outdoor pursuits and family celebrations!

Fully met our requirements. The rooms were clean and more than adequate for our needs. Choice for Breakfast was good and the evening meal on arrival was excellent. The setting in Simonsbath was picture-postcard beautiful. We couldn't have asked for more.

Just back from a three night stay in this fantastic Inn. The owners were helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The staff ( especially Lucy) were helpful and great fun. Breakfast and evening meals were very tasty and perfectly cooked. I would advise anyone to try the steak and ale pie. There was a quiz on Friday night and we... More

We stayed four nights while we walked Exmoor, and it turns out that we chose well. Our room was spacious and comfortable with chairs as well as an enormous bed, and a bath to soak our tired muscles in at the end of each day. The breakfasts were brilliant, and the supper menu consisted of quite simple dishes made with... More

There is a lovely, faded old-world charm to the Exmoor Forest Inn. Our room was decorated in a way that reminded me of the late fifties, with oriental birds on the wallpaper and luxurious art-deco taps in the bathroom. Although the style is old fashioned, it was well maintained and quite luxurious with an extremely comfortable bed and very high... More
