“Lovely from the outside and lovely on the inside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2011

My boyfriend and I were touring around Cornwall and Devon by motorbike and stopped off in Minehead and thought we'd better find somewhere to stay as time was pushing on and it was about to rain! It took us 5 minutes to spot The Parks as it was pretty from the outside, and as luck would have it it was good looking on the inside too. The room was gorgeous, clean and comfy, great personal touches, the towels were so soft and smelled fantastic. Nick and Tara made us very welcome. Breakfast was great and very well done and laid out. Value for money was excellent, I would recommend a stay here and if we're in the area we'll be sure to stay here again.

Thanks to everyone at The Parks for a fab holiday. My son has told everyone he's spoken to its the best part of the break and we'd agree 100%.

Great location within easy walking distance to Minehead itself. The accomadation was spotlessly clean and comfortable. A good breakfast is provided with fruit juices,cereals,yougurts and your full english is served with tea/coffee and toast.Sarah and Brtan make your stay a pleasant one,and Bryan will keep you well amused over breakfast. We had a great time and will go back again.

We stayed at The Parks for 2 nights with a teenager who enjoyed her stay as much as we did!! We knocked on the door and asked for a family room but there wasnt one available. However Bryan and Sarah soon found us a room suitable for our stay and made us feel very welcome. The whole place was spotless and homely and the breakfast was amazing :) Thanks Bryan and Sarah for making our stay so memorable and thanks to all your lovely staff. We will be back really soon............ Cant wait!! xx

Away from the hustle and bustle of the main street, in a quieter location but easy walking distance to everything. A very warm welcome on arrival with lots of lovely touches - chocolates and sweets. Room was very comfortable and breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Spacious family room (for 4) available on the top floor

Great location.
Within easy walking distance of Minehead itself yet far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful.
Great accomodation.
Everywhere was spotlessly clean and our rooms (all three) were furnished to a high standard.
Our hosts ,Bryan and Sarah, made us very welcome and were so friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was delicious, plenty of everything, lots of choices and were flexible on the menu.
Cannot wait to return sometime.

Room Tip: The family rooms in the annexe were great for our son and his wife and two teenage daughters.

We are frequent visitors to Minehead and we have been staying at The Parks each time we have visited over the last four years. Needless to say we love saying here, as there is always a friendly welcome for us from both Sarah & Bryan. We have never once found any fault with our room always spotlessly clean, very comfortable and very tastefully decorated. A lovely breakfast is always provided and always with a smile !!. No request - no matter how large or small, is ever a problem to Sarah & Bryan and they always do their utmost to make your stay a pleasant one. Would highly recommend a stay here - you will not regret it.
