Good location for Exmoor walks

Made to feel very welcome.

Dinner was very good with nice canapes included. Other nice touches like big fluffy towels, good quality Miles tea and coffee in room, good bar with mini poppadoms and nuts before dinner. The restaurant / breakfast room could do with some (light) background music for privacy. We could hear everybody's conversation. No mobile signal so if people want to contact you then bear this in mind. Only concern was room 9 needs a curtain in the bathroom.

22 Years later

My wife and I returned to the Simonsbath House Hotel after a gap of 22 years.

We were delighted to find that the welcome and service was excellent. We had a lovely room with beautiful views of Exmoor and the river valley. Our evening meal was delicious and the suggested wine was just right. A wonderful place to stay if you want peace, quiet and beautiful countryside. The squeaky board n the bathroom might need fixing. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Every aspect of our stay was perfect, from the spacious room to the superbly cooked dinners and the wide choice at breakfast.

The staff, in particular, went out of their way to make sure that we had a wonderful experience. We look forward to staying at Simonsbath House again!

cosy retreat on exmoor

Quiet retreat in the middle of Exmoor Perfect for a couple of days away from your busy life with log fires in the communal areas and very good customer service.

Perfect as a base for walking holidays but just as good for spending hours in front of the fire with a book/newspaper and a glass of wine.. There is NO mobile signal at all but free WiFi keeps you connected to the outside world if needed

Good for Dogs

The cottage was well equipped for self catering, and roomy.

Staff friendly, and helpful. Dogs loved their stay, walked locally, no stiles, beautiful countryside, dog friendly pubs nearby.

Beautiful hotel in a picturesque location

We booked a superior room for our anniversary and were not disappointed.

The large room was well decorated and nicely furnished with a leather-upholstered sleigh bed and freshly decorated en suite. From the moment of our arrival we were made to feel incredibly welcome and comfortable by the very efficient and friendly service we experienced. The history of the hotel is fascinating and the public areas of the hotel are beautifully furnished, from the period features of the lounge with well-stocked bar and book cases, to the simple elegance of the dining room. We stayed for evening meal and for breakfast, and both were faultless. The menu offered variety and flexibility, and the food was excellent quality and value for money. The last feature which definitely deserves a mention is the breath-taking view from the hotel, stretching right through a small river valley between the rolling Exmoor hills. A fabulous stay in a wonderful place. We wish we had booked for longer and we will definitely be returning!

Pleasant stay in a lovely setting

Very relaxed friendly place.

We could hear the water cistern filling up all night but not too loud and so did not disturb our sleep significantly. Shower head is set high up on the wall with no slider to adjust the height. Shower pressure very low. Walls in room looked a little tired and could do with a lick of paint. Good tea and coffee making facilities. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast was fine but did not spot that the room charge did not include breakfast until we were at the end of the telephone booking. We would stay here again if we got a good deal.

Great welcome, character building in a beautiful quiet location with comfortable roomy lounge and rooms.

Food good for the price and a fine wine list.
