Score from 120 reviews Very good
Food was exceptionally excellent, very friendly staff, very quiet and beautiful location. Good value for money.
The small rooms are small and the shower was only adequate. No bath. However, the room was beautifully decorated.
Location in a beautiful setting, friendly staff, great choice of food, just wish we had longer there
Stayed for 2 nights. Loved it. Ideal quiet getaway with lovely walks literally on your doorstep. Great food as well.
Lovely secluded location, good size rooms, tastefully decorated. The food in the restaurant was good quality and very enjoyable as was breakfast. Proprietors were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Would definitely reccomend a visit.
1. Access to very scenic, beautiful and stunning walks. 2. The pub has the view of the rover which can be heard through the peacefulness. 3. Choice of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner is spectacular. 4. An attractive log fireplace to warm you during the winter months as you eat and drink is idyllic.
The room could be cleaner.
Location, people, food and beer!
Everything. Staff very friendly- made you feel at home. Nothing too much trouble. Food brilliant. A very good position for accessing many different towns, villages, amenities. From porlock and Minehead and Woody Hey Station and Selwothy to the north and Combe Martin, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe to the south. excellent walks all around. Will definitely be back.
Nothing to dislike. Roads a little precarious in places but all part of the experience. Not a lot can be done about them. It's what makes the landscape so fascinating.
Friendly and helpful staff Great food and drink Tranquil location Clean and comfortable rooms
Having to leave
Lovely old Inn in ideal surroundings beside the Lyn River, ideally placed for walking in this beautiful area. The room was very clean, great selection of beers, breakfast and evening meals were excellent and all at very reasonable prices.
Friendly staff, especially Caroline. Excellent food. Towels and bed linen very clean and decor clean and bright. No phone signal! Wonderful location, very rural but beautiful river walk, close to Lynmouth, Minehead and steam train.
Only one real ale available on mon,tues and wed, the other was a honey mead. Complained mon,tues,wed then 3 ales on sale on thurs - misleading. Shower very poor pressure after two days. Location Brendon - problems finding.
Food and ale with good, friendly service. Intense bird-watching experience.
Bedrooms at the back are hemmed in by a vegetated cliff - great if you are a bird-watcher.
Great location, sat right beside a small river, beautiful area. The room was very clean and equipped, breakfast was excellent and freshly cooked. The meals served in the evening were delicious.
Having to move on!
A stunning location with contemporary decoration in comfortable, clean, and well - equipped rooms. I received a warm welcome and all the staff were lovely and friendly as well as being ultra efficient. Enjoyed great meals and breakfasts. I will definitely be back as it's such great value for money.
Nothing not to like!
Quiet location next to river and walks excellent.
Nothing we didn't like but a fresh fruit and yoghurt option on the breakfast menu would have been more to our liking as we don't particularly require a cooked breakfast.
Very kind people Very very very good meals Nice starting point for walks
What an excellent place to spend a quiet time away. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Beautiful location.
I dare anyone to put a comment in this section....
Ambience, excellent food, friendly staff
Very comfortable relaxing lovely food
Coal smell in breakfast room and misty bedroom window
Excellent welcome, very nice room. Elliot very helpful. Fantastic location for a real get a way from it holiday. 3 vehicles passed on the road in front of the Inn in the hour we sat there.
Maybe just luck of the menu but our main courses were not fantastic. Others that came out at the time looked ok and other customers appeared happy. One meal taken off our bill so thank you, however this was our one night away for a very long time so a bit of a shame.
Unfortunately we only had one night but since we walked in we enjoyed every moment - very nice welcome, lovely cozy room, great food - nice atmosphere pub and lovely staff! Just cannot wait to be back - thank you ( by the way it was our first night without children in 10 years and it did not failed us )
Nothing at all
The setting of The Rock ford Inn is unbeatable !!
The shower could have been better but it wouldn't stop me from staying there again.
Been there last year so knew what to expect..so lovely on the river Lynn where you can walk along the flowing beauty of waterfalls and rapids and trees etc...would recommend this hotel to all.
We wanted to stay longer but could only get one night :-(
Fabulous surrounding walks. Not needing to use the car.
Nothing really. It does what it says on the tin!
In no particular order, we liked the location, the food, the staff, the beer, the pub, the atmosphere, the walks from the door etc etc.
There wasn't anything we didn't like, except leaving!
