We have just returned after a long weekend on and around Exmoor, we chose the Exmoor Forest Inn as our exploration headquarters, we could not have chosen more wisely, great hotel with lovely staff and attentive hosts. The food was out of this world but a word of warning, if you choose the steak and ale pie you had better... More

We stayed here over a bank holiday weekend and had a very pleasant stay. The real plus points were the place was very friendly and welcoming and was very relaxed. The breakfasts were great, good size, and lots of options. We also ate here on an evening and the food was good. Obviously homemade and very hearty portions - so... More

I booked my long weekend stay late but the owner made a real effort to find me a room that could accommodate our dog and also had a bath. The hotel is excellent for walkers, with a drying room and towels to dry off wet dogs. The food is freshly cooked good pub food with generous portions and fair selection.... More

We stayed here for one night whilst driving through Exmoor. Simonsbath is centrally situated and very convenient for several scenic valley/river walks. The food here is tasty. Room comfortable. Free Wifi. Friendly family - run hotel.

We booked a table here for a birthday meal, having been recommended by a friend who had holidayed in the area, he said the pork belly meal was the best he'd ever had. The night we came the pork belly was off so we were slightly disappointed. The other disappointing thing was that when we arrived the bar was full... More

Stayed here for a long weekend, can't fault the room, food or service. The room was very clean and well equipped with a comfortable bed. Extra blankets/pillows provided. Breakfast was full English with variations, nice to see smoked Haddock with poached egg for a change. Cereal, fruit and yoghurt from the sideboard. A good selection on the dinner menu. Fresh,...

Warm welcome from the owner. I did not have my dog with me but she would have been very at home here. Lovely clean room. Made up as a double but immediately rectified to 2 singles. Food was lovely. Atmosphere was relaxed and easy going. Breakfast was hearty. I would definitely return. Only thing I would mention is stairs up... More

Comfortable room, a great welcome always at this first class family owned and run hotel. The food was excellent, as was the company, the room was 5 star. The dogs were made to feel as welcome as we were. Not our first stay, and not our last at this truly outstanding establishment in the heart of Exmoor. John and Clare
