“Overstream Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

My wife and I with two friends, stayed at the Overstream last September and again 23rd-24th June.2014. The rooms were really nice. Spotlessly clean and with comfortable beds. Our room also boasted a sofa and chair.Our breakfasts were well cooked and there was an excellent choice of dishes including fruit, cereals,fruit juices. There was also a choice of cooked food including "full English". The owners were charming and looked after us very well. Do try Maggies homemade scones with strawberry jam and Clotted cream. We can't recommend this lovely guest house enough. Barry and Janet Manley from Exeter

Room Tip: Room 5 is right next to the lift so very easy access for disabled persons.The room was nice and quie...

We stayed for just one night in this lovely old hotel. We were allocated room 6 which was spacious and light. The bed was very comfortable and the room nicely appointed. The hotel has some rather quirky features including an "antique" 2-person lift to all floors.
All areas of the hotel were well looked after and cleaned to a high standard.
Breakfast was tasty and cooked to perfection .....there was a choice and it was presented well .......... and hot!!
The hotel is situated in a very convenient location right next to Porlock Church and near the shops and pubs. The car park at the back of the hotel is large and easy to get to.
We will certainly be going back and can thoroughly recommend Overstream for a short or extended stay in this beautiful village.
Thank you to Nick and Maggie for a very relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Room 6 is a lovely and spacious ...... it faces the sea. Two nice arm chairs and a spotlessly clea...

Set in a senic and lovely area, with good decor, and central for Lynton and Lynmouth, Minehead, Selworthy and Exmoor.

The B and B has good Off Road parking, and Nick and Maggie were perfect hosts. Perfect for a family break with lots of walks and perfect countryside all around

Room Tip: Good well presented Bed and Breakfast with lovely ambience

My wife and I stayed at Overstream for 1 night and we found it very comfortable. We were very pleased to receive a friendly welcome from Nick and Meggie. The service was impeccable, the breakfast was top quality with variety of options from their home cooked menu, The location and proximity to the old town Porlock was excellent. We were completely satisfied and happy that we chose Overstram B&B. Thanks again Nick & Maggie.

Nick and Maggie are very welcoming with tea served on arrival being a nice touch. Very clean large room, extra comfy bed with river view. Plenty of choice for breakfast and good quality food. Can't fault it!

The Overstream is ideally situated for exploring Exmoor, and we have stayed here on a number of occassions, Nick and Maggie are excellent hosts and always greet us with a smile, coffee and a slice of home made cake. The accomodation is clean, tidy and well maintained and very relaxing, The full English breakfast is excellent as are maggie's cakes and it is always a pleasure to stay.
