I stayed at the Simonsbath during a photo workshop with Image Seen Rooms were large and quite well appointed the only issue was the lack of a/c which resulted in my room being rather warm Breakfast was excellent all freshly cooked to order and the packed lunches also good Overall a good hotel with very helpful staff

Andy & Louise were wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic. Couple that with the beautiful Exmoor scenery. It's ideal for a walking holiday. That's why i keep coming back !

We stayed here on the 16th of July for one night only, the setting is absolutely breath-taking, unfortunately our room only had a side view but i can imagine if you book a front facing room you would not be disappointed. The hotel has a fascinating history and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely return, although...

Had a great 3 night stay here in a standard double room with ensuite which turned out to be exactly what we expected. The welcome was warm, atmosphere relaxed and all the staff went out of their way to give an attentive service. Breakfast was 'right up there' as one of the best we've had for the money spent too....

We had breakfast both days, full English was perfect and the salmon and scrambled egg portion size was very generous. We also ate in the restaurant for one of our evening meals and again the food...
