“Another Super Christmas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Once again we spent our Christmas at The White Horse, the meals were superb. Father Christmas visited and gave everyone a lovely present. The atmosphere is always so relaxed and enjoyable,..Thank you Linda, Peter and Staff for a wonderful time.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Mu husband and I stayed for one night last week. Everything was perfect from the moment we stepped through the doors. Supper in the bar with the fire roaring was just what was needed after a long drive down. Lovely to watch the horses going out on exercise whilst we were having breakfast. We will return.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3, at the front, not noisy and large room.

Went there for a birthday mini break. Hotel and location superb. Staff friendly, polite and attentive. Special thank you to Vince for his knowledge and enthusiasm on recommending his malt whiskies. I thoroughly enjoyed the ones he recommended. We will return!

Recently stayed 3 nights at the White Horse in Exford and overall found it to be an extremely comfortable and convivial place to stay. The staff (and the owner) were all very pleasant and professional and generally the service was excellent. Any food and drink we had was good, the real ales should get a special mention, well kept and a good local selection. The room i had was perfectly adequate and nicely fitted out with en-suite etc....clean and tidy, just basics done well and comfortable. Overall good value for money.

Only slight negative was the extremely cosy car parking arrangements on a couple of the nights we were there although this is exacerbated by every vehicle being a 4x4 of some description and guests parking across more than one space!

We thank you for your kind comments and can only apologise for the parking problems you experienced. We do try to get people to park correctly and sensibly but as we are sure you can understand, this is not always easy!
We hope to be able to welcome you back in the near future

Beautiful location with excellent walking from the door. The hotel is great, warm clean and welcoming with such helpful staff in all areas. The food was amazing both in the evening and at breakfast. I would definately recommend this hotel and will hopefully return again soon - nearly everyone there seems to be a regular which probably says everything you need to know!

We chose to eat in the restaurant, slightly more expensive than the bar area. We have stayed here before, It was good to see this has not changed. The food was fantastic, the staff attentive and friendly. If you can stay here it is well worth it. Fantastic setting and views.
