My partner and I (and our dog) had a very enjoyable 3 nights at The Mariner. The room was spacious, as was the en-suite and a view out to sea. Great location in a superb town - great pubs! Denise is so friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is ample and delicious BUT be sure to save space for the delicious smelling...

A visit to any B&B should be judged by the service it provides. But unfortunately our visit to Mariners was a catalogue of inconvenience and lack of service. Despite what the website may say we were told we would need to pay by cash as debit cards weren't accepted. The room rates quoted on the website were not correct.The free...

We had a 3 night stay here, we had booked the twin room at the back, but for some reason were upgraded to the Captains Quarters which was very spacious. Very clean and nicely decorated in blues and white. The view has improved greatly since the photos on this page, yes, the sea wall is still there but now painted...

Stayed just the one night with a friend but it was excellent - nice clean, comfortable room with a lovely breakfast and nicely placed for the West Somerset Railway and North Somerset. Pleasant landlady who suggested somewhere for evening meal in Watchet which again turned out be a lovely place for an evening meal.

I decided to take my elderly mother on a weeks holiday somewhere quiet and found this b&b on the internet. When we arrived we were taken to our room by a woman named Gale who works there. She was quite pleasant and friendly. The room was nice and clean , painted in pale blue. Breakfast was full English it was...

Great hidden gem, as some where to eat at lunchtime. Not obvious as a cafe, as part of guest house and dining area is out the back and back patio. (Which is really nice in the sun). Dog & people very friendly. Good home cooked menu, at reasonable prices. Excellent sea food platter for the money. Worth finding.

Despite what the current website says, though credit card details are taken on booking, you will be advised payment is cash on arrival. There is a sea view from the front bedrooms but only just - the unattractive but essential seawall blocks most of the view. One person (not the owner) for the most part had to cover breakfasts, dealing...

“The Commander's Cabin doesn't have a sea view but there are other rooms with sea views so just ask. I believe they cost £75. We had no problem with noise or takeaway smells at all.”
