At Rose Bank, John and Elaine provide a welcoming home away from home. Beds are extremely comfortable and the modern showers, with horizontal jets, provide welcome relief to aching limbs after long walks along the coast or around Exmoor. Guests are welcome to borrow one of the many walking guides available in the lobby. Breakfasts are cooked to order and are of extremely high quality (choose from the many options the previous evening) - the bacon is particularly good, fresh fruit is served and there is a wide choice of preserves. My only minor quibble would be the orange juice, which is of the 'from concentrate' variety.
Rose bank offers excellent value, with comfort and breakfast quality better than most hotels. It is also good to see that single rooms are available at little more than half the rate of double rooms, making this a very economical option (around £35) for lone travellers. I would not hesitate to recommend Rose Bank to anyone visiting Porlock.
Finally a tip. If the weather is fine enough for an alfresco lunch or dinner, the Information Centre over the road has a lovely walled garden with picnic tables: we enjoyed take-away fish & chips there one evening.
