We have just spent three lovely nights at The Mariner and cannot praise it highly enough! It's quite the best b & b we've stayed in. The decor and size of our room (we stayed in the Captains Quarters) were excellent. And the en-suite itself was bigger than some rooms we've stayed in in the past! We cannot fault the attention to detail and the friendliness of the staff. The website states only continental breakfast was available, but we were offered a full English breakfast too. There was plenty of fresh fruit salad and yoghurts to go with the cereals, toast, croissants and pan au chocolat, not to mention the endless possibilities of how you want your eggs cooked! Tea or coffee and fruit juice completed the breakfast menu. What more could anyone ask for? The sea wall opposite the b & b was the only down side but you could see over it to the Welsh coast, and the binoculars provided were very useful. Watchet itself is charming and not over commercialised. There is a local steam railway that runs from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard, stopping at Watchet to pick up passengers. This is a trip worth going on for those who are in a nostalgic frame of mind or for others to experience travel as it used to be, and is a great way to view the countryside.
