Stayed at the Parks as visiting Husbands Mum for the Bank Holiday.,Given a room facing the back which was nice and quiet and a bed which we found very comfortable. We asked for a cooked breakfast which we assumed would be of the size we normally have while away.WRONG - more like a walkers breakfast ! 3 sausages , 2 rashers of bacon etc etc .... Not the sort of brekkie to have before church then lunch out .!!! But hum ,we did clear the plates!!
It was nicely cooked, presented , and tasty as well . Very nice hosts who do everything they can to make their guests have a good stay.

We booked to stay here for 2 nights at very short notice. We had a superior room called Luccombe suite. Our welcome on arrival was very warm and friendly. Room was spotlessly clean and a very good size. Bed was large and comfortable and bathroom with shower was ok. We felt a little cold in the room at first (we do feel the cold more than most) but as soon as we mentioned this she provided another heater for us to use as well. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was very well cooked and enjoyable. Plenty of choice and nice and hot. Only a short walk into Minehead town and good car parking available at rear of property. Would definitely recommend this B&B. There is however, a house being demolished opposite and they will be building a nursing home there. We were not bothered by any noise when we were there but it may get noisier in Summer.

We stayed in The Selworthy Suite with my son, daughter and our dog and we had a lovely couple of days visiting family in Minehead. Sarah and Bryan were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was one of the best we have had for a long time. All the little extras such as chocolates and being offered fresh milk for the tea tray without having to ask made it special. Thank you and we will be back xx

In terms of location this guest house is within easy walking distance of the town centre and the seafront. We have stayed in the Parks previously and this year there have been further improvements to the accommodation.
Breakfast is cooked freshly to order and to an excellent standard.
Our daughter left an expensive coat behind but the owners telephoned promptly so we did not have far to turn back. We are so pleased with our stay that we have already booked again for next year.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Selworthy suite which has a separate sleeping area for the children.

The Parks is an excellent guest house, and great value for money. A warm welcome, a comfortable and spacious room, with all the facilities you could possibly want - and chocolates! A wonderful breakfast, parking available, and a comfortable stroll into the town or down to the beach. We hope to return one day. Thank you Bryan, Sarah and Ben.

We have just returned from a 3 day stay at the Parks in Minehead and have already decided to return with our family later in the year. Comfortable and clean with friendly service from Sarah and Bryan. Lovely breakfast !!
