Rose Bank Guest House
Ranked #4 of 18 Porlock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2010

In a location to die for and with a friendly service that is second to none, this is truly the best B&B I have ever had the fortune to stop in. From my room I have views that are stunning, with one over-looking the sea and the the other the roof-tops of the village up to Exmoor. The room is well furnished, and bathroom is a delight (the highlight of which is the shower...which I loved experimenting with). The room has everything you could need (and more), from a cosy and comfortable bed, fridge, CD player and TV. The highlight was the complimentary tea and coffee, this is from a local tea merchants and is without doubt the most refreshing tea I have ever had. Finally run by a welcoming and friendly couple...I will certainly be making a return visit

We spent two nights with John and Elaine at the Rose Bank Guest House and they made us very welcome from the moment we arrived. The accommodation was clean and inviting and nothing was too much trouble. The location was also perfect for exploring Exmoor.

Porlock was a wonderful retreat and we had excellent meals out in the evening. Walks from Porlock were great too. Breakfast was very nice, our room number 7 was very cosy and the shower was great.

John and Elaine were really lovely, they epitomised excellence in running a B+B . Porlock was a wonderful retreat and we had excellent meals out in the evening. Walks from Porlock were great too and John was kind enough not only to advise on a route but to also lend us his map. Breakfast was the best. Whist the room was smaller than it looked in the photo and the sea view wasn't quite what we'd imagined this in no way detracted from an excellent stay in Porlock. Thank you John and Elaine for making our break all that it could be and more…

My husband and I stayed at Rose Bank Guest House for 3 nights over the May bank holiday weekend. It was lovely. I'm a very light sleeper and this is by far the quietest B&B I've every stayed in. The breakfast was amazing, the location perfect for checking out Exmoor National Park region and the hosts were above and beyond helpful with everything we asked for. Hope to stay there again soon.

Myself and my husband travelled through out Cornwall and Devon and this was the best place we stayed. John and Elaine were the best hosts with the best hospitality. We would stay there again and would highly recommend it to anyone travelling in the area. Mary & Paddy

Having stayed at Rose Bank last year I wanted to impress my brother who was visiting from Dallas, Texas. Well, it takes a lot to impress a Texan and this delightful experience did just that. Rose Bank, and its location, ticks all the boxes.
