My husband and I spent a perfect 2 day break at this hotel. It couldn't be in a better spot practically on the harbour wall. View from our room which also had a balcony was great. The staff were friendly and efficient and the rooms were very nice. The food both at breakfast and in the evening was brilliant and... More

Stay here, just stay here for an experience you will not get elsewhere. When my husband and I decided to visit Clovelly we knew we had to stay in the village to get the full experience. With a hotel reservation at the Red Lion you are allowed to drive down the one road to the sea, without paying a fee... More

The hotel is located right down by the harbour, with limited parking on the beach for hotel guests. A very warm welcome on arrival with nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was plentiful with a waitress that worked very hard to please, rapidly re-making the tables by the windows so as many as possible could enjoy the view. The bar was... More

Upon viewing the Clovelly website, and photographs on line, you would think that there would be something a miss, however upon my arrival, on a day of glorious sunshine, every image I had seen before, did not do Clovelly justice. The Red Lion itself is a key feature, it has amazing views and has an atmosphere to match. My partner... More

If you would prefer to visit a seaside Devon away from the crowds and somewhere unusual, the Red Lion offers a harbour setting at the bottom of the quaint village of Clovelly. The hotel offers an attractive Inn-style accommodation, complete with beams, snug bar and comfortable lounge. Many rooms have a sea or harbour view. We were with a large... More

Stayed for three nights as part of a walking group. Most rooms are fully refurbished to very high standard and the privately owned village is something quite different to anywhere else in the UK......cobbled streets and quaint cottages with no holiday homes meant that it was a really charming place. Food was excellent and service was very friendly rather than... More

We stayed for two nights in the main hotel in Feb. My Husband and I have stayed here before but, not for some years. It has not lost any of it's charm. After driving down the step hill ( a 4x4 is handy ) and leaving the car in the hotel car park its all peace and tranquillity from there... More

A very comfortable hotel with warm and friendly service. An amazing location right next to the beach - it's not often you can park on one! We opted to eat in the bar, which comes with open fire and beams. The breakfast was very well cooked and tasty. Be aware that the road down to the hotel is extremely steep... More

there must be something at the top of the village distorting the time space continuim because we certainly shifted back 400 years when we entered Clovelly . The Red LIon is a fine well run hotel with helpful friendly staff in a beautiful setting beside the Atlantic serving enormous delicious breakfasts, fine beers and bar meals (we didn't try the...

When I booked the hotel I was entranced by the pictures of it and Clovelly online- so was trying not to be TOO disappointed if it was not as wonderful as I and hoped in the weeks leading up to the trip. We went for Valentines Day and stayed two nights- wish we could have stayed for weeks. The hotel... More
