Rose Bank Guest House
Ranked #4 of 18 Porlock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2011

We have just spent five days at the wonderful Rose Bank Porlock.
Having been here many times in the past we find it the perfect stop in our UK travels.
The location in the village is superb, the house is spotless and very comfortable and the breakfasts unmatched anywhere.
John and Elaine are the most obliging hosts and off street parking and wifi complete a perfect stopover.
It is a credit to the industry, to Porlock and to Exmoor and Somerset
Not to be missed.

Our stay at the Rose bank was fantastic,we were made to feel welcome straight away.
The breakfast was the best We've ever had at a B+B and the room and bathroom were spotless,
Dog friendly and in a beautiful location.

Porlock is a great place to tour the area on foot, by car or public transport and Rose Bank is the perfect base. The Stenner's are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them.

We spent two nights at the very homely Rose Bank, and although we arrived early were made very welcome. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable, lacking nothing.
Tolietries, ample tea, coffee and milk available and even a fridge, and a bottle of water by the bedside ! Truely professional hosts, knowledge of the local area. it would be hard to find a better english breakfast, value for money excellent. Would certainly recommend this B&B, could not imangine anyone being disappointed.
Thankyou John and Elaine for a most enjoyable stay.

We arrived in Porlock quite late and only really intended to stay for one night and then move on but John and Elaine made us so welcome that it was an easy decision to stay for our extra night. The room itself was lovely and the breakfast so beautifully cooked, we will definately return.
This was a special couple of days for us it was my birthday on the wednesday, and we are in the process of tracing our family trees. John and Elaine were so gracious and friendly - we can't wait to return.

My husband and I have travelled to the west country over a number of years visiting various locations . One of our favourite's being Porlock in Somerset. We have stayed in numerous B & B'S and Hotel's in and around Porlock.
The Rose Bank Guest House is by far the best and we will certainly be staying there again hopefully, when we choose to visit Porlock again.
Both John and Elaine made us extremely welcome and John assisted us with our luggage.
Our room was very clean with good views, the food was excellent , overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rose Bank . John and Elaine are a very pleasant couple.
