“The best Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

This Guest house was given four stars, but when we went in 2012 for the first time, I left wondering why The Parks didn't receive a five star rating.
The accommodation was amazing and was cleaned every day
The Food menu was full of different options, and you could help yourself to cereal and stuff like that.
The service was good and we felt very welcome, not just by Brian and Sarah and Tara, but by the other people staying as well.
it was a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with free WiFi, Colour Free View TV in the rooms.
I think the guest house is better than a hotel, because here they try to cater for your needs as closely as they can.

Room Tip: All the rooms are high quality, just go for the one that stands out to you most.

This was our first visit to The Parks in 2012 and the standard is as good as ever if not better.
The breakfast menu has been upgraded so as well as the traditional choice you can now choose Smoked Salmon, Kippers, Smoked Haddock and Eggs Benedict. The scrambled eggs and smoked salmon can be recommended especially if you are on a diet!
Brian and Sarah do everything possible to make your stay comfortable and the service and quality far exceeds many starred hotels. We will be back again later in the year.

Room Tip: The Woodcombe Room except when we want it.

Another wonderful stay at this excellant, B & B, rooms all wonderfully clean and tastefully decorated, all the comforts of home. Despite a bad start due to our car breaking down on the way, we did not arrive until 1130pm on the Friday night. Bryan and Sara stayed up and had bacon sandwiches, coffee and tea waiting even offering some to the breakdown truck driver! You could not ask for a better welcome. Bryan even contacted the local garage first thing and our car had its catalytic converter changed by 1130am Saturday morning! The breakfasts are wonderful, with a large choice and you can have whatever you want extra. Our son has a serious nut allergy and can be nervous of eating out, but was soon at ease in no time, thanks again to Bryan and Sara. All rooms bright clean and comfortable we will be returning again! Excellant venue for families or couples, Steam railway, walking, safari expeditions locally wonderful views from top of the hills. It is also nice that this is a short 10 minute walk from the town and beach, but far enough away from the town to be quiet for a good sleep. Debbie Barrie

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, we like the room with the front balcony, as it was the room we stayed in on...

Stayed for a weekend with my 11 yr old son and it was wonderful from the moment we arrived. Sarah and Bryan made us feel very at home, the room was beautiful and spotless and they happily met our every request. Comes highly recommended, particularly Bryan's sense of humour which was served with a very tasty full breakfast.

Very comfortable Guest House. Sarah & Bryan made us feel very welcome. The room was spotless, plenty of hot water and a very filling breakfast (vegetarian sausages cooked to perfection!) We would definately stay here again next time we are in the area and will certainly recommend to friends & colleagues.

My wife and I have just returned home from our first stay at the Parks. The location is excellent, the room was very clean and comfartable and Bryan and Sarah were perfect hosts. We were made to feel very welcome right from the first step through the door and will be very happy to go back whenever we are in the area. This is one you can book and know you will not be dissapointed. We definitely agree with the other reviewer's comments about the food, absolutely top class.

A third stay at this lovely guesthouse where friendly host Bryan has once again provided a warm welcome. The house is very comfortable, extremely clean and the breakfasts generous and delicious. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The Selworthy suite has two rooms and a separate entrance on the ground floor
