I stayed at the hotel for a painting holiday in July 2021. The hotel was still in partial lockdown, so some covid controls were still in place and occupancy was very low. I had a really enjoyable stay. The hotel is in a relatively quiet location with nearby walks and lovely valley views. My room was extremely comfortable and well equipped. The food (Chef Anthony) was excellent with use of local ingredients. Andrew, the owner/manager, was attentive, very knowledgeable about the area and good company. As the hotel was only occupied by our small group he joined us for our painting outings. Receptionist Tina was also extremely helpful and friendly, as were the other staff. I would definitely stay here again.

If you are exploring Exmoor and the beautiful north coast of Devon and Somerset, there is no better place to stay than Simonsbath House Hotel. Walking over the top of the moor and descending into the village is like arriving in Rivendell after a long time in the wild. With fantastic food, wonderful rooms, and a warm welcome this was our first visit but will certainly not be our last. Back for Baileys by the fire before the year is out!

This was a return visit after a long gap of 42 years. We understand from Andrew that the hotel has had its ups and downs since then but our four day stay in these troubled times was fantastic. The area of course has changed very little but that the hotel has reconfiguered with what was the restaurant now being the lounge and bar with the dining room now at right angles. The hotel has been Covid proofed with an advisory one way system to access the bedrooms on the first floor. Our room wasvery comfortable with a great view down the valley which we remembered so well. Andrew runs walking and painting groups as well as catering for the general public and was a mine of information on the area as well as a great guide to his wine cellar. There was a wide choice at breakfast and the evening meals were all excellent, with the rack of local lamb being especially memorable. It will not be 42 years before we return again!

Room tip: Room 7 has the best view down the valley

This is my third time that I’ve enjoyed a wonderful visit to this little gem.
The owners and staff are delightful and do all they can to accommodate your requirements. Andrew is the font of all knowledge when it comes to recommendations for walks around Exmoor and wine matching with the excellent meals. The hotel made sure that we were safe with strict adherence to the Covid rules. Highly recommended for a relaxing or more active stay.
