“Another great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Once again, another great stay at Rosebank. John and Elaine really go out of their way to look after you.
My room was changed, but I got an even better one than I had been planning on.

Absolutely problem free, if you want a restful and enjoyable stay, then this is the place.

This was our 3rd visit this year,really says it all !. Their secret is you always want to go back.
During our 4 night stay they were fully booked,so I jeopardize possible disappointment by writing this review for my future bookings.
Comfortable beds,every possible need catered for,you look forward to your next shower( an experience ). John and Elaine really have done their homework researching customer's needs.
Elaine's breakfast is still the only reason for leaving your bed has now been enhanced by 3 culinary delights( I am led to believe John had some input ) but Elaine has to produce the final result on the plate.
Tomato Tango---Old English Sweet Piggy Blanket---Eggs Benedict Wow ! it is very easy to skip lunch !
If you need to switch off,have a few days break,with the delights of Exmoor,enjoy the comforts that you are used to, then visit Rose Bank,I promise you will not be disappointed----- but hold it make sure I can have a booking first.

We had a warm welcome from John and Elaine. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Breakfasts were freshly cooked to order and set us up for the rest of the day ! Good place to stay!

My family stayed at Rose Bank Guest House this August. We had a wonderful stay with John and Elaine, who were warm and friendly.The room was immaculate and the breakfasts amazing! All cooked to order, with quality local produce. It was an extremely comfortable stay and I'd recommend it to all. Perfect!
