The Overstream is fairly basic but very comfortable. The hotel has dedicated off street parking and plenty of it, which is not common in Porlock. The hotel is centrally sited in the village, in a prime spot just off the main road. Porlock is a quiet village, and there was no noise disturbance. Nick and Maggie make you feel very...

My colleague and I were staying here on a business trip. We were working in Minehead, at the Butlins resort, but chose an area just outside of the town centre to stay. Nick and Maggie were wonderful hosts! We were warmly greeted on arrival and swiftly shown to our rooms. We stayed in 2 double rooms with en-suites. The rooms...

Both my colleague and I arrived late on a Friday evening (after a 7 hour journey) and departed very early the following morning. Both Maggie and Nick could not have been more welcoming, helping us to our room and getting up extra early to provide a breakfast. Thank you both!

We stayed at Overstream twice more last year and the hospitality was just as brilliant each time. The rooms are all comfortable and clean and the breakfasts were always a great standard and plentiful. Now that we have sampled the packed lunches we can recommend those, too. With gorgeous homemade cake and a homemade sandwich filled with a choice of...

We had a three night stay in October and it was lovely. The owners make you very welcome and are ready with information or maps you can borrow. Porlock is a lovely village and Overstream didn't disappoint, everywhere very clean, a lovely welcome, a great breakfast. Would happily return! Hope they manage to save the Porlock-Minehead bus service at the...

Booking a guest house in Britain can be a bit of a lottery, even with Tripadvisor advice – many are good in parts, but with some distinctly odd quirks! Fortunately Overstream is one of the wholly good ones – pretty much everything a good B&B should be. It started well when we were shown to our room – we’d booked...

I visited Porlock with 3 friends to attend a friends wedding party in the village hall that evening. We shared one double room and one twin.

We were on a 19 days roundtrip by car in England and Porlock was one of six destinations we visited. The Overstream Guest House was without any doubt the very best B&B one of all. The room was quite large, very clean, tidy and nicely and individually decorated. The full English breakfast was delicious. The owners were very friendly, professional...
