“A truly wonderful break.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We have recently enjoyed a weekend here, a beautiful place in a beautiful location, very comfortable room with lots of thoughtful 'extras', an amazing breakfast/evening meal all freshly prepared, plus two fantastic dogs more than willing to take you for a walk! John & Elaine are superb hosts,giving us a warm welcome & nothing is too much trouble, really a 'home from home' atmosphere. All in all a wonderful experience, would heartily recommend a visit.

My wife & I stayed at the Rose Bank Guest House on Friday 22nd Feb for 2 nights & it was superb, John & Elaine couldn't have made us more welcome, our room (No.3) was very spacious & comfortable, the breakfast was to die for & the dinner (1 Night) was delicious, served in the dinning room with a lovely log fire burning..
John took us to the top of Porlock hill on Saturday morning in his Volvo (plus our 2 dogs!!) & told us of a walk back down the the Guest House, it took 2 hours & was just wonderful, freezing cold & a dusting of snow added to it, will do it again soon!!
John & Elaine worked very hard for us all & we all appreciated their efforts, we would give them 11/10 if we could, thank you very much!

We got a deal on living social and had only read good reviews on the BandB so we were looking forward to our stay.

We were greeted by John who even greeted us by name. you don't usually get this. He helped take our bags to our room and went through a few things.

our room was clean and well presented with all amenities you would need for a weekend away. The shower was lovely and the bed was very comfortable.

You order breakfast the night before and it is made to order and tasted great. frewh tea coffee and toast also came with it. They also had a wide selection of fruit, juices and cereal.

This was a lovely peaceful break in a quiet village with some beautiful views. it also had some lovely pubs to eat it.

John and Eileen are bery hospitable, kind and friendly and did everything they could to accomodate your needs. Highly recommended :)

My husband and I spent a very relaxing two nights here in February. We had a lovely top floor room with views over Porlock full of helpful extras like an emergency toiletry bag and a bowl o f sweets. We ate there the first night a deliciously hearty 3 course meal prepared by Elaine and served by John. The breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. John and Elaine made our break exceptional. Definitely recommend this B&B if you are wanting to stay in the area!

If you are looking for a base to explore Exmoor and the surrounding area Rose Bank Guest House is the ideal choice. John and Elaine are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the TV reception was perfect. There was a good choice of local ingredients for breakfast and it was served to perfection. The location is ideal with plenty of places to eat and drink within minutes (there is an excellent inn virtually next door). There is plenty to do and many places to visit with some of the most breathtaking views in England. All in all a great place to stay.

John and Elaine were excellent hosts. The breakfast was superb; a wide choice, quality, quantity and perfectly cooked. Room 4 was rather small, but nevertheless the 2 night special offer was exceptionally good value for money.

Clean, comfy, great food, open fire, lovely hosts, fab bathroom, dogs to walk, central location what more could you want! We have just returned from Rosebank after a two night stay, our first taste of a B&B and we think it must be all down hill from here! A first rate place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room one with views to Wales.
