Picked this hotel while doing the coast walk with friends as we couldn’t stay in Porlock Weir. Wasn’t disappointed, friendly reception and helpful staff throughout our stay. Dinner was lovely and cooked well. Breakfast offered a range of choices from lighter dishes to the Full English, again all well cooked. Shower in our room didn’t have the best pressure but this wouldn’t stop me staying there again.

Considering it is in the narrow High Street it has been attractively updated with interesting and topical furnishings in the public rooms. They take Covid precautions very seriously, but the staff are cheerful and helpful. Food is plentiful, well presented and delicious. Our large double room faced onto the High street but there was very little traffic noise during the night. Only drawback was parking, either in public car park, free between 6 pm and 9 am or a few free spaces in a road some walk away.

We had a lovely stay here, the staff were welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. The room was spotless & the Covid measures in place were well thought out and didn't take away from the overall experience. Dinner & breakfast were excellent with great & friendly service offered by the staff, overall a great stay and we will be returning soon to enjoy both the hotel and the wonderful Exmoor, thanks to everyone at the hotel for such a memorable stay!

We had an over night stay here and found our room to be very small and dusty in places. The landing and stair carpets had stains on them and there was a dampness about them.. Although not served with a smile, breakfast was reasonable. Our lovely long walk along the coastline and a couple of nice local pubs made up for our dour stay at Lorna Doone.
