Travellers' Choice
Set in the heart of Exmoor National Park in front of the 15th Century harbour in Porlock Weir Somerset, Locanda on the Weir was completely refurbished in 2018. The beautiful Victorian building stands slightly elevated with views across the harbour and sea beyond including an Italian restaurant, bar and lounge for guests of the hotel seven days a week with the restaurant open to outside guests at the weekend. Locanda on the Weir opened for rooms and restaurant bookings on 16th March 2018 to stunning reviews and accolades. Porlock Weir's only Boutique Inn has been most often described as offering eclectic decor, comfort and careful attention to detail with an impeccably informal vibe, it is also available for complete hire as an exclusive special occasion venue. On the doorstep are beautiful walks on the SW Coast Path taking in the coast, moors and woodland, for those wishing to spend a few days relaxing Locanda offers the perfect spot in all seasons, with the garden during Summer and Log fire in the Winter .

Came with my family for a heavenly four course meal, couldn’t fault the food and couldn’t recommend more. Love the fact that because it is a set menu it is basically zero waste as food is prepared for the demand.

Property's Favourite Review
On arrival this unassuming looking property opens its doors to a Pandora’s box of treats. Once through to the internal rooms you are immediately wowed by the enhanced original features of this stunning property. It’s warm appearance matched by the welcome received by the proprietors Pio and Cindy. Very friendly and aiming to please all guests to the highest of standards whatever their needs and dietary requirements. We stayed in the San Francisco room with the most picturesque view of the harbour and surrounding area. We had the most comfortable two nights sleep only made better by the breakfast provided the following mornings. We also booked for two nights within the restaurant and both evenings we were served outstanding dishes! Some we have tried to replicate at home! It’s location is a perfect base to explore the Exmoor surrounding walks. Locanda provides five rooms only so if piece and quite is your thing then look no further. It’s the most relaxing weekend away we’ve had.

This was our third visit to Locanda on the Weir and we plan many more! Cindy and Pio's hospitality is wonderful in every respect, from the welcome to the bedrooms and the food; which is divine. Having travelled the world and stayed at many lovely places, Locanda on the Weir tops our list of favourite places to stay. Our visits here are always very relaxing. We try and be active during the day as we know come the evening, we will eat everything Pio cooks for us, nothing is ever left as it's all so delicious! A beautiful boutique hotel made special by Cindy and Pio.
