First things first, the place is in administration and is being run by a company to keep the place going whilst a buyer is found. That said, the two lady's running the place are doing the best they can with what they have, and a good job they are doing too! Lovely home cooked pub meals and nice beers and cider to accompany. The rooms are a bit on the small side and it is true there is no tv, if you find this a problem that's simply because you have forgot how to talk to your partner because we didn't really miss the tv and we are big tv watchers back home. Our room only had a bath and no shower. The location is very remote, no mobile phone reception and the nearest shop is miles away. The roads leading to the hotel are very narrow and at night are pitch black for miles and miles. The breakfasts are nice and plenty full and perfectly adequate for the day ahead, they also include cereal, yogurts, fruit and fruit juices aswell as the full English breakfast. Overall we probably wouldn't stay here again but that is not the hotels fault, it is simply because it's a bit too remote for our liking and have no reason to come back to this neck of the woods again. Minehead and Dunster are close by and worth a visit.
