We stayed here for one night last week and loved the hotel. The staff were really welcoming and although we didn't have dinner in the hotel, afternoon tea with cake, and breakfast couldn't be faulted. The location is perfect and our room (room 3) overlooking the harbour was great. Reading previous reviews I was expecting shabby chic, but there was...

Quirky is a frequently used word by other reviewers, with good reason. This hotel is definitely different. We found it relaxing and homely with very friendly staff. Our room overlooking the harbour was comfortable and quiet. The food was interesting, ok but not great. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and would return.

To start this hotel is in a fantastic location and Porlock Weir is a tremendous place to stay! The hotel is "bonkers" with antiques & oddness everywhere you look. The candles, real fires & decor really creates an unique atmosphere which I really loved! A great place to relax and kick back in the lounges. This hotel has been created...

Start with the positives - this is a great quirky hotel, right at the weir and dog-friendly to boot. We had room 7 with a fantastic view to the sea, albeit it had the smallest shower room/toilet I've ever encountered - the sink was in the main room as there wasn't room for it near the loo. It was a...

We travel a lot and due to time constraints could only steal a few days away for my birthday so were determined to seek out this hotel after being recommended . It was everything I had hoped for, quirky, unique, relaxing escapism , truly eccentric and perfectly us. We paid full price as we deliberately sought this hotel out and...

A fantastic place with its own character and charm albeit not to everyone's taste as you do get the impression us mere mortals are just paying for the privilege of being in someone's eclectic home. Having said that the place offers wonderful food and drinks as well as some interesting deals like dinner and movie night in their extremely comfortable...

We stayed here after getting a deal on secret escapes and so felt that it was worth the money. We do not feel that it is worth the reduced from price on secret escapes. It is a very eclectic decor and so a little oppressive in my view, but that is a personal taste issue. The walks surrounding the area...

Admittedly it was an out of season visit, but all very disappointing. The hotel is filthy and the food was awful. Such a shame as it could be an enchanting place, but based on our experience I couldn't recommend it all.

We booked to stay in this hotel for a walking holiday with my brother and his wife and their dog It is a beautiful old-fashioned hotel not to everyone's liking with it crammed full of antiques and not as clinically clean as some people like but for us it was perfect the rooms were great although not spotlessly clean ....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For over 200 years the Anchor has served Porlock Weir's 15th-century harbor for sailors, walkers and huntsmen alike. Where Exmoor meets the sea, Porlock Weir is an idyllic working harbor with stunning coastal views. Martin Miller together with his daughter Tanya have created a hunting lodge by the sea. This 14-bedroom hotel is crammed with Martin's antiques and curiosities. The Anchor has all the hallmarks of his unique style. Roaring log fires, candlelit sensuality, books by the thousand and bowls of fruit and sweets, all washed down with a Millers award winning Gin and tonic. ... more   less
