The hotel is in the middle of Porlock village which gives easy access to the many restraurants and shops. The owners, Nick and Maggie are excellent and they go out of their way to really make you welcome. No task or request was ever refused and they really show what hospitality is all about. We stayed just 1 night and stayed in the room with the sea view. The room was clean, tidy and of very high standard as was the dining room, sitting rooms. The breakfast was perfect with just about all the choices being made available.This hotel comes highly recommended. We arrived around lunchtime and had an excellent lunch at the Home Cook Cafe located across the street from the village car park.They make their own bread and our soups were home made, a place you must visit if you like home cooking.
We had our evening meal at the Ship Inn (Porlock) and once again the food and hospitality was second to none.A special thanks to young lady working in the Cafe for returning my wife's mobile phone to the Hotel and to Nick for posting to us the same day. This unselfish act epitomises the great community atmosphere and respective attitudes we experienced in Porlock and lessons could be learned from the more established tourist areas of the UK by folowing their examples.
