Very friendly staff, the hotel is going through a period of refurbishment. Our room was clean and comfortable, the shower was a bit erratic and the television was far too small in such a big room. Breakfasts were excellent but evening meal menus were disappointing. There was a great welcome for our two cocker spaniels. This hotel deserves a makeover, it is in a wonderful position on the harbour at Minehead.

The property has some very strange "covid rules". Like they now check-in at 5pm and no longer supply toiletries in the bathroom. But having said that, they let us check in at 3pm as we arriving from walking and had nowhere else to go; and similarly found some shampoo when I asked as we were not carrying any (hiking). The breakfast was good (but no buffet, only a menu at the table) but we did not eat anything else. It all looked good though. Staff were friendly. The room was very basic but perfectly acceptable. There was scaffolding up around the place so our view was mostly blocked and it was noisy if the window was open with some kind of machinery downstairs. Bed was only a double but comfy; good bathroom. Rather overpriced for the room but I think that's the whole of the UK these days.

The staff were fantastic, all were friendly, helpful & polite. Accommodation was a let down, our room was very tired & dusty. Mismatched furniture. Hospitality tray was good but we had to ask for a top up as there was no housekeeping due to Covid. Bed was comfy, linen & towels were spotless. Some traffic noise in the mornings but to be expected. Breakfast was good

A hotel of two halves. Great staff with an excellent attitude, good food and a nice location on the quay but both the public areas and the rooms need restyling and upgrading. A slightly odd Covid policy means tiny bars of soap but no shampoo or shower gel in rooms.
