I found this lovely place on a Google search for the area, differing reviews so I called the hotel direct. I spoke to a lovely ;lady called Mel who was one of the owners. I was checking about the dog friendly situation which I was told was fine. so I booked for one night. Mel kindly informed me that the...

Have stayed at the hotel twice now and both times have been amazing. The breakfast menu is excellent and of the highest standard and I cannot recommend the restaurant enough. The food is absolutely marvellous. My wife is in love with the garlic mushrooms and after mentioning it to the owners, was overwhelmed when she received a complementary dish to...

If you're looking for a very nice Hotel to stay in Exmoor, this could be the place you're looking for. The food is fabulous, and the service very good. I was impressed by their lack of children's menu, suggesting that children can eat what adults eat, and offer a smaller portion for such occasions.

We loved our stay at the Lorna Doone, which is being updated by its new owners. Charming hosts and staff; delicious food; lovely dining room; comfortable and well-laid- out room. Relaxed, warm, and welcoming atmosphere. A great base for local sightseeing, and its town centre location makes everything easy. We will visit again.

Excellent just excellent. Ilfracombe still has a hell of a lot to learn and a lot of work to do.. Well, some parts of Somerset are totally different to North Devon. Porlock knows how to do hospitality and work for a living; Porlock is a beautiful, unspoilt area that must be preserved and protected from what's happening everywhere else. This...

Lovely bed and breakfast, very clean and not expensive, situated in a charming little village. The owner was friendly and made us feel welcome, and the breakfast was amazing! Will definitely recommend.

Set in the beautiful village of Porlock Somerset, this is the gateway to Exmoor National Park, itself an area of outstanding natural beauty. The hotel is clearly owned and managed independently (always a good sign). Very relaxed and friendly staff and 'Tigger' our dog was made just as welcome as we were. Really dog friendly, we had a room, sadly...

We never would have found this place if all the Hotels in Minehead were not fully booked. We were made very welcome on our arrival by the Proprieter Paul and his wife even though they were extremely busy. Our accommodation was excellent as we had what seemed a whole flat to ourselves ie two bedrooms, living room/kitchen and a small...

We stayed here over night. The room was very comfortable with an ensuite shower room. We had the breakfast which was really good and you get a good choice of cereals and cooked breakfasts. Very friendly and welcoming, although very limited parking available. There is a larger carpark just a little way down the road
