Although we didn't stay at the hotel, my wife and I had a meal here and it was absolutely delicious! The menu choice isn't massive but there is something for everyone on there and more importantly it is all freshly cooked. My wife has a gluten allergy, but this was not a problem as the chef made sure her meal...

The location of the hotel was really good. However the room we stayed in needed a good touch of decoration, the wallpaper broken, paint off, carpet worn out and patched. The smell of mould was prevalent and we could see the mould around the windows. I asked for a yogurt at breakfast and have been told that they don't have...

Thank you for your kind feedback, thankfully not a view shared by the vast majority of our guests. We state on our website that there is limited on site parking but good availability locally.

We stopped @ the Lorna Doone Hotel Restaurant on our journey to Woody Bay, Devon. The menu has many delicious options from which we chose their Local Steak Pie with Vegetables. This was swiftly delivered and provided substantial Devonshire sized portions that filled us both for the rest of the day! The prices are also reasonably competitive with total bill...

Loved Porlock and owners and staff member were very friendly. However, the rooms need a good coat of paint and a spruce up - especially at £95 per night (and that was for 3 nights not a one off). Owners haven't been in residence a full year yet admittedly, but come on get a paint brush out, a decent bathroom,...

Thanks for your kind feedback Jill, as you rightly point out we havent yet been here for a year and you will have seen alot of redecoration has been done in that time. We're sorry you're weren't happy about the room you were in and if you had mentioned this at the time we would have made every effort to...

A great welcome as soon as we arrived. Service was excellent - very attentive. Locally sourced produce and excellent cook made for a very memorable experience. Anyone in the area of Porlock should put this restaurant at the top of their list for lunch or dinner.

This is the first time we've taken our dog away with us. We were all made to feel very welcome from the beginning. All the staff clearly are passionate about running their hotel and they just great with our dog Sprocket. The food in the restuarant was excellent and good value too. Breakfast sets you up nicely for the day...

We are just back from two nights at this hotel and loved it. The hosts were welcoming, friendly and approachable whilst also being professional. We had our dogs with us so our courtyard room was ideally situated and had good facilities.. Breakfast was perfect with plenty of choice and the food in the restaurant was excellent - far exceeding our...

We stayed for a 2-night break at the beginning of March 2017. This hotel is very dog friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The dogs enjoyed their own sausage for breakfast! We were made to feel extremely welcome and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. The food at breakfast and dinner was also delicious.

I can only speak about the food and service as I live next door? But, since Mel and Paul have taken over, I have been impressed by their new ideas for this lovely, relaxing hotel? There is also a very pretty, French style courtyard dining area which is open to non-residents and their dogs! The food is delicious, as they...

We arranged to stay at the hotel for the weekend as we love Porlock and the area. The hotel managers were really friendly to the two of us and our dog a very lively spaniel. They only took the hotel over in 2016 and have decorated downstairs in the bar lounge and a hall way where you are able to...
