“Comfortable & welcoming”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Rose Bank. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was great and Elaine & John didn't bat an eyelid when we all wanted different things. In fact they are excellent hosts and we hope we will see them again.

We spent two nights at this guest house and were very impressed. We couldn't find fault with the guest house or the service. It was the nice little touches that distinguished it from all the other comparable accommodation. From the sweet on the pillow on arrival, to the toiletries provided, every need was catered for. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The food was all fresh and cooked to order - very tasty! Elaine and John made us feel very welcome, and ensured we had a fantastic stay. If we ever returned to the area, we would definitely book a stay here again.

Comfortable room.
Candy in the room, always a plus.
The breakfast is of high standard. Although I was the only guest that day I was presented the full selection.
The B&B has also a nice lounge area. Certainly would have used it if I would have arrived earlier.

We had a great stay with John and Elaine. Fantastic food and they are so friendly.
The place is immaculate and the service was first class.
If you are into railways - John drives a puffer on the West Somerset!
We will definitely be returning.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here. John and Elaine are fantastic hosts. The food that we had was beautiful. The room that we had was stunning. We were in room 4 looking over the sea and the view was amazing. Would recommend any one to stay here. We will be returning here. Very welcoming, warm and comfortable. Location is central and easy to get places. Thank you Elaine and John, Sophie and Jamie.

Room Tip: Room 4 was beautiful, no bath but a fab shower, views and cosy for couples.

We recently stayed at the Rosebank for a second time. As before, our hosts John and Elaine were delightful and we were welcomed as though we were old friends. Our room (a "superior" on the first floor with a lovely view towards Wales) was perfect, and once again had those little extra touches to enhance our stay. Elaine's breakfasts are really scrummy, with a big enough choice to satisfy the fussiest of eaters. We also chose to eat in-house each evening and were certainly not disappointed. A bonus to anyone thinking of staying at the Rosebank is that John was born and bred in the village which makes his knowledge of the area invaluable. We would happily recommend this guest house to anyone and look forward to making a return visit next year.
