Owners very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was great and generally the hotel was fantastic. The weather wasn't too good, but we enjoyed the time we spent in the games room on the pool table. The room was clean and the bed really comfortable.

Don't come here if you want super fast broadband and all the latest mod cons. Do come if you want traditional decor, comfortable bedroom and good powerful shower, fantastic views, fresh eggs from chickens in the lovely garden, cakes offered at tea time, superb breakfast, and above all, service second to none from a wonderful, enthusiastic host, Alex.

Breakfast was cooked for when you ordered it (so was freshly made) and was wonderful. Bedrooms were clean and...

Great room, stunning views and one of the best breakfasts we've ever had!! Alex and Naomi were friendly and helpful. The cake waiting for us after a long day out was a lovely touch. The walk uphill back from town kept us fit but taxis are readily available if you prefer.

We had a great time here. Very friendly with brilliant local knowledge. Really excellent breakfast, perfectly cooked and served. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Marston Lodge is a a good location at the back of the town with views over the bay and surrounding countryside. We would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

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
