Recently spent a long weekend in this hotel and with my daughter, son-in-law and his parents and we were all absolutely delighted with our stay. The rooms were large and comfortable, staff very friendly and the food varied & very good - booked a meal for the night of our arrival with the intention of trying other places for evening... More

Good central moorland location, wonderful meals and room. First time back on Exmoor for many years (growing family and Grandchildren). Wifi very useful for emergencies, but having said that there is still a landline(remember those ! ). The moors only feet away, almost no light pollution. Great stay with great hosts and staff well recommended !

A lovely bolthole in a quiet location; excellent for walkers and dog lovers especially. Many varied Exmoor walks from the Inn but this isn't really a village with no shop but another hotel and a tea room. However it is a beautiful escape to a quiet and peaceful inn with a genuinely warm welcome and wonderful food and comfortable bedrooms.... More

A lovely warm welcome. Room was very comfortable, with generous tea/coffee etc. Evening meals were good. Throughout our stay every effort was made to ensure that we had all we needed. Good attention to detail. The hotel is central for visiting coast and moorland, with lovely walks on the doorstep. This was our second visit. I'm sure we'll be back.... More

This was our second visit, it is so relaxing here, friendly staff, good food, and a short walk across the road to take our dog for a run, not much to do in the area but who cares, we just love the peace and quiet and will certainly come back.

We spent 3 comfortable days at the Forest Inn and were very pleased with the facilities provided. Comfortable room, friendly staff and excellent cuisine, our dog enjoyed it as well! Ideally suited for walking and trips to Lynmouth & Lynton.

We've been here as a family for dinner twice now and it's a lovely pub. Excellent food and good ales on tap. I had an amazing lamb dish the first time and wanted it again for the second visit. Alas, they'd changed the menu but my steak was also very good. My in-laws are vegetarian and there are limited options... More

I booked this place a few weeks before and got a good deal. On arrival the place looked shut but after a little wait we were welcomed in. We took our greyhound with us and he really enjoyed the surrounding areas and runs. A dog friendly hotel and you can run up a tab at the bar. We ate the... More

enjoyed the stay comfortable room and warm with the exception that at night its pitch black this is due to the location of the Inn , which it is in the middle of the Exmoor National park. the staff are very welcoming and friendly, also its one of the best places to stargaze

We stayed for a night to escape and take our dog. The Inn is very friendly to dog owners and their dogs. It was the first time we had taken our dog away with us. Staff and other guests were really friendly. Some lovely walks and excellent food. https://www.flickr.com/photos/126168992@N02/sets/72157648680768126/ Have a look at the weblink to see some of the...
