My wife and I have just enjoyed a wonderful week at The Parks. Brian, Sarah and staff are all so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is an excellent meal - no dried up buffet breakfast offered by so many hotels these days will be found here. The food is varied and freshly cooked and there is plenty of it. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. The bed in the Woodcombe Room is huge and very comfortable. There is off street parking and you are 5 minutes from shops, restaurants and pubs. We have stayed here for a few years now and have always enjoyed our twice yearly stay. We will be back in 2012.

Room Tip: Woodcombe Room and Luccombe Suite offer the best value both being quite large.

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.

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.
