I have never written a negative review before but felt that the owner of this establishment needed to know we were very disappointed with our visit for afternoon tea. We were drawn here as the garden area is idyllic. We ordered a cream tea for one and two cold drinks. The owner brought out the drinks with scones for three.... More

My Husband and I stayed in Lynmouth for a few days a couple of weeks ago. I didn't write a review at the time but having read the most recent reviews I felt I could also add our agreement to the comments. We thought we would sit in the sun and enjoy a cup to tea. My Husband enjoyed his... More

I went here for afternoon tea with my husband and mother on Tuesday and have to agree with Pauline V and others who have left similar comments. The gardens and setting are very beautiful but the owner's manner has to be seen to be believed. He came to our table with a 'forced' welcome and immediately tried to encourage us... More

Beautiful setting but as many before have said, spoilt by a very rude owner. Others around us were also clearly surprised as his attitude. Would not go there again. Such a shame as the location is superb and the gardens very pretty. The owner just needs to understand what customer relations is all about!!! He clearly doesn't or doesn't need... More

Myself and my girlfriend took a last minute break here before our daughter was born. We had a lovely time and the owners were so helpful to the point of offering to phone ahead so that we could drive to the site where everyone else had to walk 2 miles! Everything was great, just what we wanted. I hope to... More

Looking for a relaxing stress free break? I found the Captain's House on line and instantly booked it. Set next to the River and across the bridge to a few pubs shops and the harbour this historical place had all the character you would expect. The walks and the view are very beautiful and the sound of the river outside... More

We stayed here for the 2nd time in 10yrs, I forgot we had been there before & soon remembered about the awful dark dreary furniture all rather wierd decor. On entering our room I drew the heavy gathered net curtains back to look at the view,& to let some light in. Im sorry I forgot to pull them back again.... More

I would not normally review somewhere that I spent probably less than 30 minutes visiting, but since a lovely day out was spoilt by our visit to this establishment I have felt compelled to look it up on Tripadvisor and to add my pennies worth. It was an absolutely beautiful day and having walked the lovely coastal path to the... More
