Marston Lodge is an impressive Edwardian coast & country house, retaining much of its original charm & style. Built on Exmoor's North Hill, it enjoys unrivaled views from most of its en-suite rooms. Take a 10 min. walk via the lanes into town for the wide selection of quirky shops, pubs & restaurants or head along the coast to the medieval village of Dunster. Follow the South West Coast Path & venture up on to Exmoor National Park (a few steps from our front door!). Let us create a memorable itinerary & guide you to Exmoor's hot spots. Return from an exhilarating day to a log fire, freshly baked cakes or a hearty Home Made supper (Min. 48 hours notice). For those wishing to make life-style changes, arrange a personally tailored Hypnotherapy session or enjoy a Relaxation Treatment in the comfort of the hotel (Min. 48 hours notice required). With welcoming, informal hosts, Marston Lodge combines a home-from-home style atmosphere with precious memories. A tranquil & unique little gem!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights, on arrival we were greeted by Naomi, she was so lovely and helpful, also makes beautiful cakes!! May I add we ate our slices walking down to the pub. Naomi was very helpful on how to get down to the seafront and into town. The room was clean and comfy with beautiful views of minehead seafront, its very pretty at night with the lights on. The next morning we met Alex and their two dogs, he has so much information on where to go and what to see around the area. Even gave us a map and showed us where to go. I would recommend getting a breakfast, delived to our door and ours was hot, fresh and very yummy. *Alex and Naomi Thank you so much for a realy easy and relaxed stay.

Hotel is situated on a hill and has lovely views. Breakfast is delivered to your room because of COVID. It’s very quiet and peaceful ensuring a good nights sleep. The interior is not modern but very comfortable and unique. Alex is very knowledgeable and provides good information about walks and local countryside. Had a lovley stay thank you Alex and Naomi

Hotel is furnished in line with an old mansion house so doesn't have mod cons but gives it the right atmosphere. Powerful shower and comfy bed. It is located above the town, with stunning views from the small terrace on the first floor. Very good picnic breakfast delivered to the room (due to COVID restrictions) and complimentary home made cake at around 4pm in the afternoon (delicious!). Very quiet peaceful stay - thank you Naomi and Alex.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments; they are hugely appreciated. We are doing our best in unusual circumstances; the feedback has been very positive, thus far, so we shall continue to work in our 'new normal'. It was lovely to host you both for the week & we are looking forward to seeing more of you when you have settled into your new home. Glad the cakes were such a big hit! You know where to come when you're peckish! With our love & best wishes, Alex & Naomi.

We were given a very warm welcome when we arrived at Marston Lodge Hotel. Our room was beautifully decorated and the view of the bay and the hills was quite spectacular. Due to the Covid restrictions our choice of breakfast was served to our bedroom door each morning......and beautifully presented I may add. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Minehead.

This hotel was very welcoming even with the current constraints. Everyone was friendly, in particular Alex who shared his local knowledge willingly, helping us discover the area in the short time we were there. We’d happily stay again.
