Rose Bank Guest House
Ranked #4 of 18 Porlock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 6, 2012

What an excellent place to stay after a full day's activity. John & Elaine provided us with superb hospitality at great value for money - our room was comfortably equipped and the large modern shower essential after days of walking the coast path and Exmoor. They have a breakfast award which is thoroughly well deserved and the requested packed lunches were substantial. Additionally they have car parking facilities which is a real benefit as the roads and lanes are narrow through the town. I cannot recommend the Rose Bank Guest House highly enough.

What a gem this B&B is, Jon & Elaine are some of the friendliest people you could wish to meet,
Provided a place for us to store our bikes and even let us use their crab lines for crabbing down at Porlock Weir.

With a wealth of knowledge of the area be sure to ask for tips and best paths.

Great breakfast with a large selection to choice from.

Nothing was too much trouble, which made our week a perfect one - Thanks Jon & Elaine

Room Tip: we stayed in room 7 which has a great view over the salt marsh towards the sea

We stayed at this guest house whilst walking the Minehead to Porlock section of the South West Coast Path. It is a real gem of a guest house with fantastic hosts. Rooms are plenty large enough with en suite facilities (some dog friendly). Nothing was too much trouble - even muddy walking boots. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Our evening candlelit dinner was also delicious.

We rarely go back to the same place twice as we believe the world is big enough not to - however we will make an exception for this guest house and plan to return later this year when walking the next section of the coat path.

Just had a weeks walking holiday based in Porlock at Rose Bank there were 7 of us in our group and John and Elaine were excellent hosts, lovely clean rooms good choice of menu for breakfast and evening meal and excellent value for money. For those considering Porlock for the first time, it really is an incredibly friendly village, lots of character and beautiful surroundings, we love Porlock.

After another five day stay at the Rose Bank ,on our month long recent UK tour ,we can say categorically ,that John and Elaine's impeccable guest house and it's fantastic location in the village of Porlock once again was one of the highlights of our trip.
Exmoor,Porlock and the Rose Bank guest house continually tempts us back year after year from the other side of the world.
Not sure there could be any better recommendation than that.
The Rose Bank deserves all the accolades it has received.
