A most enjoyable stay (24 October 2015)with a pleasant and friendly welcome by all at the hotel and excellent food, choice of food, service and value for the money for the area. Whilst not clinically pristine this hotel is clean and with character - a pleasant change from little boxes! And full marks for being truthfully 'dog friendly' and not...

Have just spent a relaxing night staying at The Lorna Doone Hotel. We were greeted with genuine warmth and friendliness. We stayed at one of the courtyard rooms because we were travelling with our family dog and we were warm and cosy despite it being a cold , wet night. We were allowed to eat in the bar with the...

We only stayed one night and received a lovely welcome. The room we were allocated was clean but very small and it needs some attention, especially the bathroom. However, the cooked breakfast was good and the owner and staff extremely friendly.

We stayed two nights in October, along with two friends, one of whom had limited mobility. When informed, the hotel kindly allocated a room that was easier to reach and made sure that everyone was comfortable whether it be in our rooms or the dining area. We had our evening meals at the hotel and found the menu varied; it...

We stayed here for just one night and we wished we had stayed anothe night. Yes we had a small room on the top floor but the view from the window made up for it. We could see right scross the Bristol channel to the coast of South Wales. Porlock is really pretty and surrounded by beautiful countryside. the hotel...

Stayed for two nights for our 30th wedding anniversary. Wonderful meeting Mo and the staff again plus some old friends from our last visit. As always a very warm welcome, wonderful food and wonderful company. I would recommend a stay here to any one who appreciates feeling right at home from the word go.

We had booked 4 nights & arrived on 31st August to begin a well earned holiday. When we arrived we were informed we were now room 7. On seeing the room I was close to tears & wanted to leave straight away. There wasn't a wardrobe to hang clothes & enough drawer space either. The furniture was mismatched & very...

Thankfully we were only booked for one night in this hotel, we had been given one of the 'Courtyard' rooms although I don't really feel that a few pots of geraniums placed around the sides of a scruffy looking car park and the smoking area counts as a courtyard. The room was on 2 levels, the windowsills were dusty, enormous...

We found the Lorna Doone to be a very disappointing hotel, we booked 2 rooms for a one night stay, my partner and I had a twin room in the main hotel, whilst my daughter and husband were given a 'cottage' suite in the courtyard! The imaginatively named 'cottage' turned out to be a chalet type structure which had once...

this is in an ideal location to explore Exmoor. Our room was very small and there was a bath but no shower which is a bit unusual these days. However the bed was very comfortable and the staff were all very welcoming and friendly. I would say that this hotel was good value but one wouldn't want to stay more...
