“Central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2007

Have been staying at the Lorna Doone hotel at least annually for almost the last 20 years with my young family as they grew up.

Hotel rooms are limited in Porlock at busy times so we were delighted to have found the consistency of having the same owners of this small hotel who welcomed us back each time.

Toni Thornton is a superb chef who has travelled the world during the quieter winter months learning new cooking skills (notably Thai), which she now presents in her own restaurant alongside the traditional English dishes.

I can thoroughly recommend this hotel; it cannot be 5 star accommodation in this beautiful rural area, but you will almost certainly be away from the hotel all day anyway enjoying the delights of Exmoor, so a comfortable bed and welcoming staff when you return exhausted, with wonderful food is much appreciated.
