“lovely hotel”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

A last minute decision to relax and get away from it all was happily fulfilled by the charm of this lovely hotel. The staff are very helpful and the location was very peaceful - lovely views down a very green valley. Excellent standard of care in bathroom fixtures and fittings (very clean) and lovely big bedroom (No 3). Breakfast was large and well cooked. Book now, and relax.

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend and we weren't disappointed. Our room (No. 3) had a beautiful view over the valley and the river which was lovely. Although there is a road in between the view, it is very quiet in the evening and we didn't hear anything through the night. The breakfast and evening meal was lovely and nice staff. Maybe need to do something about the view from the dining room which overlooks a rusty fire escape
The only reason we wouldn't stay again is because it was such a long drive from Sussex for 2 days.
A word of warning, take care with the hot water in the bathroom, it is hot enough to scald!!
Even though a few negatives, we would like to say thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Choose room No. 3

We have stayed at this hotel many times at different seasons,and have always been impressed by the service and comfort,plus the amazing location in the Barle Valley.This really is a gem of a place to relax and take in the surroundings,with all that Exmoor has to offer.
The food is superb,breakfast to set you up for the day,and dinner to complete.
The warming log fires in Winter are enchanting- possibly one of the best locations in the centre of Exmoor.

Room Tip: Room 4 looks out over the Valley.

We booked for two nights and ended up staying for 4 - what a wonderful quiet place this is. Nice well equipped apartment with access to the lovely little bar in the hotel. Great walks on the doorstep and a wonderful secure riverside tramp for dogs and their owners just 50 yards away. We have to give the bats a mention too - what a fantastic thing to see! We felt very very privileged to be able to watch them go out for their nightly feast from our balcony. No wonder these beautiful little creatures are a protected species - they are an absolute joy. Very friendly owners and staff, clean and warm, comfortable, interesting, well located and extremely good value. Thanks to all at Simonsbath House for a wonderful stay - we will be back.

Room Tip: We did not see the bedrooms but the self catering units all appear to be good.

The accommodation was clean, spacious and exactly what you'd expect from a old English mannor.
The food was fantastic, big portions and well presented.
The staff were polite, helpful and bubbly.
This was a wonderful treat for my wife for her Birthday, thank you very much.

We had a really lovely break and as we are have our own business we understand what hard work goes into a providing such relaxed and welcoming atmosphere on a consistent basis. Our room had a beautiful view and we enjoyed a great dinner and an excellent bottle of Sancerre recommended by Andrew!
Breakfast was excellent too. Had the weather not been so sunny we would have definitely enjoyed sitting reading in the cosy lounge and bar area which must be amazing in autumn and winter with the open fires.
Thank you everyone!

Hard to find fault, but then....why would you want to? Lovely, quiet location, handy for both country and coast. A large, tastefully decorated, comfortable room. A huge bath which, incidentally, is very old-person friendly, its very depth making it easy to stand up.

Then there's the food. English breakfast, with a good choice of cereals, fruit, etc, but even this faded before the excellence of the evening meal.

From the warmth of the welcome to the comfort of the leather armchairs in the lounge, this is a special place, and not too expensive either. The one small glitch was a central heating system that stayed on as the English summer arrived, sort of, and the radiator in my room could not be switched off, somewhat denting the hotel's green credentials.
