We arrived absolutely drenched after walking several miles across Exmoor in torrential rain. It was too early to check in but the landlord immediately went to see if our room was ready, which it was. He showed us to our room, helped with our bags and took all of our wet gear and boots to dry them out. The room... More

Good amount of parking, good amount of space, nice staff, excellent food would defiantly go again. Only criticism would be when it turned dark outside it was pretty hard to see the ground leading to the up-car park luckily I had a torch.

We stayed for just one night at this traditional Inn having been invited for dinner at a nearby hotel to celebrate a friend's birthday - the hotel was fully booked, so we found the Exmoor Inn online and were really pleased with our choice! From the initial telephone call to make the reservation through to paying the very reasonable bill... More

The decor and atmosphere is fantastic, nice and friendly. We stopped for dinner, food was better then average pub food, and came in good time. I would say pricing is fair, as a poor parent with 4 in our family we can't afford to spend £15pp on a meal too often.

3 nights at this excellent hotel. Room was comfortable, clean and with outstanding views of the Barle valley. Food was wonderful and well presented and with a good range of dishes. You can tell this is a family run hotel, nothing was too much trouble, happy to say we will be back in September.

The whole establishment seemed tired and in need of modernisation. It reminded me of a 1980's hotel. My room on the first floor, smelt of dog, especially when in bed, making it a rather unpleasent experience. When I mentioned this at checkout, the response was 'we are dog friendly and allow pets in the bedrooms', without any real apology, which... More

We are sorry your stay did not meet expectations. The building is actually more 1880's than 1980s but is regularly re-furburbished and decorated indeed the room you we in has fitting and wallpaper form Laura Ashley. What puzzled us is the fact that the room you were in had previously been occupied by by a hotel inspector on one of... More
