Just returned from a visit to Clovelly. This was mine and my daughter's first trip and we thought the village was charming. If anyone has visited here you will know that it is a great trek down to the harbour and back. We arrived ready for lunch and inched our way "down-along" passing the New Inn on the way as... More

My wife and I stopped off at The Red Lion for a couple of pre-booked nights recently en-route to our usual fortnight in west Cornwall. We were reassured by the website, which showed photos of the individual bedrooms, so were able to pick out the ones we fancied before phoning to book. We had room 7 which is up in... More

What an experience!!!!! Totally enjoyed every bit of my stay. The staff are absolutely charming, polite and ever so friendly. The food (both dinner and breakfast) fab 100% delicious. The view of the sea and hearing the waves crashing as you sleep WOW. A definite must visit. Will be visiting very soon. Cannot wait :)

I am dumstruck by the review of the Lake Chelan Rotary from WA he must have stayed at a different Red Lion!! We stayed on Saturday night and had a lovely stay, our room was small but so quaint with lovely furnishings and new Bathroom and the most amazing view of the sea, we found the staff more than helpful...

My friend & I have just spent two nights at the Red Lion Hotel and had a fantastic time. Very welcoming, friendly, great views, fantastic food & nothing is too much trouble. Beds very comfortable & clean. Drank in the bar during the evenings with many of the locals & off duty staff, could not have asked for nicer company.... More

Terrible food, unclean, unfriendly, poor value. Clovely is no better than so many other beautiful villages in Devon and Cornwall. The Red Lion is far worse than other similar hotels in the area. Avoid the cost of maying to see the village and the Red Lion by going elsewhere.

We stayed at the Red Lion for one night on the way further south. What a perfect stop over. We were in room 4 which looked out to sea as opposed to the harbour. Room 5 also looks out to sea but has a balcony with seats to sit and take in the view. However we had a bay window... More

When you visit heritage sites and wish to stay a little longer than simply a visit, it is often hard to find overnight accommodation. The Red Lion is not simply overnight accommodation, it is pub right on the quayside in Clovelly, renovated to a very high standard as a pub/hotel. The rooms are excellent and their restaurant food an absolute... More

We were lucky enough to be placed into a room in the Sailoft which had beautiful views across the bay and meant we could leave the windows open to listen to the tides at night. The staff could not have been more welcoming, Perfect line between being friendly and allowing us to exist in our cocoon. The room was clean,... More

Stayed here for one night....we were quite taken aback when we were shown to our room..what a view! Right on the seafront...literally yards from the sea...much better than expected! The hotel itself is very tasteful...the room was beautifully decorated with sash windows which let in a cool breeze on a hot night. The bathroom was very small but the shower... More
