Reviewed 27 October 2015

The Parks is simply The Best place to stay in Minehead. Sarah and Bryan had put so much care into every detail and providing such a comfortable bed followed by fantastic breakfast. The place felt so warm and friendly... we shall have to make it a regular fixture.

This was our second visit in 8 months. Bryan & Sarah make you very welcome. This time our grown up sons visited too. The rooms are comfy, very clean and out of choice, we stayed in the same room as last time. The breakfasts are delicious with locally sourced products. Hope to be back again soon.

My wife and I stayed last week for 4 nights, and were not disappointed! Fantastic room, with lovely added extras, great breakfast, and what a choice, and cooked to perfection. We were admirably looked after by Tara who must be worth her weight in gold to Brian and Sara. Will be back!!

We had another great stay at the parks guesthouse this summer. Comfortable rooms, the kids loved the lolly on their beds, delicious breakfast and always welcomed with a smile. There's always loads to do and the children enjoyed walking to the seafront and playing in the arcade with the 2p slot machines.
