Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We turned up in the middle of the afternoon and needed a room just for one night. Although the hosts did not have any dog-friendly rooms available they were more than happy to prepare one for us and our clean canine companion. Once settled we took our dog for a walk and found a footpath right opposite the hotel that led out into some beautiful Exmoor landscape. On returning we had a meal at the hotel which was very good. Later in the evening a cool jazz band played in the bar. Our room was comfortable and the full English breakfast next morning was more than I could eat!

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Lunchtime and evening meals are taken in the bar/restaurant area. The food is very good quality with a good selection, including a choice of vegetarian dishes.
We chose this hotel due to its location. You do not need to drive anywhere to start a long walk. We stayed there for 6 nights and for 2 of the days we did no driving, starting and ending our walks in Simonsbath.

A welcoming family business, comfortable and unpretentious, with glorious walks from the doorstep and a hearty meal to return to. the bed was comfortable, if too large for us, and room attractively furnished, light and airy. We enjoyed the bath products, Miles teabags with Earl Grey as well as Green tea and the peace of countryside.

We arrived quite late in the evening, but were accommodated with dinner even though the restaurant had stopped serving. Bed was comfy and breakfast was lovely. Very quiet in the bar out of season, though but then it is in the delightfully remote middle of nowhere!

Despite refurbishments taking place around the hotel, we were made to feel most welcome.
Lunch was very good - the steak and ale pie being quite a challenge !
We needed help with a forthcoming party visit and nothing was too much trouble for the proprietor who was most helpful. We look forward to our return next month.

Lovely room with masses of space and very friendly staff in this remote part of Somerset. Warm, clean, comfortable and homely with very pretty bedroom furnishings. As a walker I felt very welcome and the evening meal was as hearty and delicious as I could wish.

We have just had three nights at the Exmoor Forest Inn - excellent stay in every way. Lovely room, very comfortable and warm. Beautifully presented breakfast with no request too much trouble. The owners are delightful, food was perfect and good value overall for the entire stay.
Will return again one day and have no hesitation in recommending this Inn.
