This was our second visit to The Old Rectory and we came away just as rested, relaxed and refreshed as we did the first time. Owners Huw and Sam's style is more akin to that of a friendly house party...

We've really enjoyed our fifth year here at The Old Rectory Hotel. We never cease to be amazed about how quickly that time has passed and, at the same time, how the hotel has evolved over the years into the wonderful boutique hotel we have today.
Our greatest pleasure is to welcome back so many familiar faces, as well as an increasing number of new visitors to Exmoor and The Old Rectory Hotel. Restoration and refurbishments of the house and gardens have continued as ever. For the 2013 season, we have built a fabulous Orangery to replace the rather dilapidated Vinery and created an additional luxury suite - The Arlington Suite in The Coach House. We hope that you, as our guest, will be delighted by the results.
We're delighted to have been awarded more accolades. Our wine list won the Champagne Taittinger Wine List of the Year in the Small Hotels Category and we have been awarded a Travellers Choice Award from Tripadvisor for the 4th year running. We were rated 19th Best Hotel in the World for service - an award of which the team here are particularly proud - particularly as this award was based on continued words of praise from our customers.
We hope that you will make yourself at home here - perhaps hunker down in the new Orangery with a book or board game or enjoy a quiet drink in our idyllic Garden before tucking into fantastic local food in our Dining Room.
On behalf of everyone here, we look forward to welcoming you to The Old Rectory Hotel and wonderful unspoilt Exmoor.
Huw and Sam
