It's not the first time we stayed there, service is good as usual. Rooms are nice with good views. If you like plants and gardening there are so much to look at in the back garden too! Only tips will be don't go greedy on breakfast as there are a lot in your plate if you order hot food.

My boyfriend and I were down in Minehead over Christmas with my brother and his girlfriend. The hotel was perfect and Alex was the perfect host. It's a very relaxed atmosphere which was lovely. Our room had a great view and was nice and quiet. I would definitely stay here again when in town.

We visited the hotel for a few days between Christmas and new year. The service received was amazing, and the view!! Wow!! We stayed in room 4 which had a beautiful bay window overlooking Minehead every morning we were greeted with views of the wonderful sunrise. Breakfast each morning was cooked fresh, with a wide variety of options. Different teas...

Lovely place to stay and fantastic breakfast. Management were helpful and suggested where to go and when, to make the most of our trip. The hill that it is on is a little steep but was no problem for us. I do however think that anyone that struggles normally, would find this challenging.

Hotel provided warm welcome, comfortable room & bed and excellent breakfast. The customer lounge was nicely decorated and offered a comfortable place to read papers or watch tv. The host is charming and full of local knowledge.

This is a small cosy hotel nestled above Minehead. It's a short downhill walk into town, a little more arduous coming back; the upside is you are away from the noise, traffic etc of town and have great views across the town from high up. Bedrooms well furnished and comfortable. Plenty of hot water and decent shower. Enjoyed the lounge...

We stayed in room 4 for a few days with great views, clean and tidy room with a great breakfast if you like a full English. The downside was wifi didn't reach to the bed, standing by the door or in the hall works. The TV reception is poor at best. We could find BBC picture only, no sound and...

The house is attractive, but the owner is not a congenial host. He always seems to know better than the guests when it comes to recommending a day's ramble. And when his hens and chickens at the back side of the house are attacked by foxes (as happened several times during the night) the dogs begin to bark with excitement...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Marston Lodge provides visitors, to the wilds of Exmoor, a warm and welcoming launch pad for both exploration and relaxation. This coast and country house was an impressive and elegant, Edwardian gentleman's residence (built circa 1900) which retains much of its original character, charm and style. Being amongst the first private residences built on Exmoor's scenic North Hill it enjoys unrivaled panoramic views from most of its individual, comfortable and stylish en-suite bedrooms. Take a 10 minute walk into the town and enjoy the wide selection of quirky shops, bars, restaurants and coffee shops or head further along the coast to the medieval village of Dunster and Blue Anchor. Alternatively, follow the South West Coast Path and venture up on to beautiful Exmoor National Park (just a few steps from our front door!). Allow us to create an individual, memorable itinerary and guide you to Exmoor's Secret Hidden Gems (using our invaluable local knowledge and numerous experiences!!)... Whatever the weather! Take a Home Made Picnic or ask us to highlight the best eating spots on your tour. Return after a 'Wild & Wooly' day of excitement and adventure to a log fire and a hearty, traditional home made supper. With the best views in town and welcoming, relaxed hosts, Marston Lodge offers a home-from-home style atmosphere that you will want to re-live over and over again. ... more   less
