I have not stayed in this hotel - the review is purely of the food served during the day. I had decided to wait until I got to the harbour to eat and was most disappointed to find that this was really the only option (unless I wanted seafood). Ordering at the grubby bar, the choice was limited and not... More

We stayed in rooms15 and 16. Both were on a pebbly beach and had a balcony and superb views. You could go to sleep listening to the waves which was lovely. Rooms really nice - superb furnishing, modern and very clean. The Hotel website shows an accurate picture of each room so you can choose. Lots of hot water and... More

If you are arriving by car, you have to drive a narrow and steep road down to the port. Once there, you can relax at a wonderful place. Everything feels back in time. There are very, very different room types. Check, what fits best to you. We think, room #4 is the best room. Renovated, big bed, great view, modern... More

Thanks for such a lovely review. I share all reviews with the team and we learn from all, both good and the not so good. We have many well established staff but also along with me have a few newish members. The location is amazing, the property has been beautifully renovated and whilst room 4 & 5 in the Red... More

My husband and I stayed at the Red Lion last month for a four night break. We had the most relaxing and rejuvenating trip. Clovelly is such a beautiful little village and we enjoyed many wonderful walks around the area. The staff at the Red Lion could not have been more helpful or kind. We had wonderful sea views from...

After a terrible experience at The a Slipway Hotel in Port Isaac we arrived at a The Red Lion in Clovelly with trepidation. How wonderfully surprised we were! Clovelly is just gorgeous and arriving at the hotel was easy with parking right at the door. We were escorted to our room (room 5) to be greeted by a spectacular view... More

Clovelly is a must see location if you are visiting anywhere in Devon and the Red Lion Hotel is the must stay Hotel. Red Lion is located on the ocean front overlooking the harbour. After a fairly challenging drive down a steep slope from the visitors centre you are presently surprised to find a quaint old hotel which has been... More

The Red Lion, Clovelly has, perhaps, one of the most beautiful harbour-side locations in Devon, set in the enchanting and genuinely unique village of Clovelly. In such a location and setting one might be excused for thinking that the village's only hotel would be equally impressive. Unfortunately this is not quite the case. The room we had was adequate and... More

Visited this hotel recently and was really impressed with all aspects. The location and views are fantastic. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the food was excellent. The rooms overlooking the sea are lovely and look like they have recently been refurbished. Hope to visit this hotel again soon.

Sadly I am not sure why I have read so many negative reviews recently. We stayed at the hotel in late June and had a wonderful experience which has promoted me to write a review now.
