We stayed here for 3 nights. Porlock is a great location as there are lots of excellent restaurants. The hotel staff were friendly but we weren't very impressed with the room. It was a spacious family room but it needs a refurb (quite dated) and...More

Reviewed 22 October 2017 via mobile

Stairs are very steep so, if you have mobility problems, you need to ensure that you get a courtyard room. However our heavy suitcase was readily carried up for us. Indeed the owners and staff were all unfailingly helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great but...More
