I stayed over Friday and Saturday nights. The Hotel has been recently refurbished and was clean. The breakfast was excellent although the choice of cereals could be widened. I had some noise from the next room and nearby on Friday but quiet on Saturday. Bedroom was large well appointed and bed comfy with views over the West Somerset Railway station....

We stayed here on Friday night and we were very impressed!

We were not affected at all by the work. We planned to dine in another restaurant anyway and we were not disturbed by...

Minehead was the last stop of our road trip in July 2016. We stayed at The Beach Hotel for one night. It is a very lovely hotel with super friendly stuff. The decor is kept quite simple, the bed is comfortable and the room in general was very clean. Great hotel for a short stay.
