Lovely room. Like the face clothes supplied. Great having a teapot rather than making tea in a mug, also fresh milk available. Wonderful breakfast. Thank you. Very friendly and convenient place to stay for either a short visit or longer.

It was slightly different at breakfast due to one person who was , it appears, the leader of the pack! Would love to stay again ash hosts were very... More

We spent 2 nights here to see our friends, Chris and Sue,who have recently bought this Guest House. We had the Luccombe room which was on a North American size (we are Canadians and love space!). The room had lots of little touches which made everything great. Having off road parking in Mindhead is a real plus. Chris and Sue... More

We have just returned from a three night break in Minehead and our stay at The Parks Guesthouse was lovely and relaxing. We stayed in the Woodcombe Room which was very comfortable, the bed was lovely and large and a good nights sleep was had. The room was at the front but you didnt get road noise. Everything was fresh... More

I started my 7-day hike of the SW Coast Path from Minehead to Instow in Minehead, and this was the first of 7 different B & B's and guest houses I stayed in. It proved to be one of the best! Chris and Sue are relatively new owners, and did their very best to make my stay first rate. All... More

We particularly appreciated the variety of teas, coffee and biscuits provided in the room, and the fact that fresh milk was always readily available.The breakfasts were superb, with a good choice of fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereals, and the...

We stayed here last year with Brian & his wife and were wondering if under new owners Chris and Sue it would be as good, well to tell the truth it's as brilliant as it was. Lovely breakfast & rooms with kind host's who leave you alone to enjoy your stay. Happy to recommend any time

We had a wonderful stay in The Parks Guest House. The room was lovely, clean and big enough for a travel cot that had already been set up for our 2,5-year-old son. We were all made to feel most welcome! Breakfast was delicious and Sue and Chris were very friendly and thoughtful. We would love to come back!
