“Nothing forgotten”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

I have an Aunty who lives nearby and so The Parks is an obvious choice. It's all the little touches like a jar of sweets, flannels, coat hangers, DVDs free WiFi etc that make this guest house such a perfect place to stay. There are plenty of breakfast choices and Bryan and Sarah are friendly hosts so service is with a smile every morning. There are steps so have a look at their website here - http://hotelsinminehead.com to view the facilities. Already looking forward to my next stop.

Room Tip: The Allerford room overlooks the car park at the back so you can admire your nicely polished car.

Lovely couple of nights spent with very friendly, welcoming and accommodating hosts Bryan and Sarah.
Little bit of a walk down to seafront (therefore uphill at the end of the day) but this suited me fine, even with pushchair!
Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon myself!

Sarah and Bryan are great hosts: friendly, knowledgeable about the local area, and they can whip up a fine breakfast!

Intent on a bank holiday weekend in Somerset, we set out looking for dog-friendly accommodation and we were pleased to find the Parks Guest House. Its off-street parking and central location made it easy to explore Minehead and the local area, whether on a coastal walk, an Exmoor adventure or setting off on the West Somerset Railway.

Somerset itself exceeded our expectations, and when we return to the area we'd definitely be staying again at the Parks Guest House!

Room Tip: Ground floor annex great for dogs and their humans.

Good fun to stay at and delicious breakfast :-) Would definitely stay again when in that neck of the woods. Stayed with a friend in a room at the top - up a few stairs so be aware if you have limited mobility but fine if you don't (you can work off your breakfast :-)) Thanks

Our hosts at this guest house were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the family room which was pleasant though nothing fancy. It was nice to have the suite style room. Pretty easy walk into town for food. Minehead isn't too much to look at though it's nice being on the coast!

My son and I had a great 2 night stay here. The room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was great and really set us up for the day. Brian and Sarah are great hosts and took time to chat to all guests and really made us feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
