My Husband and I stayed here for a week of relaxation. We were not disappointed. Although we have been to the area many times, this was a new place to stay for us. The service is very good, friendly and respectful. The food is very special and served in the rather quant wood panelled dining room. Breakfast is so far... More

My Wife and I spent 5 nights at the Rising Sun during July. We found the Hotel/Pub suited our needs in every way. The Staff are very good in all areas and are always keen to assist. We ate in the restaurant on four of the evenings, every meal was first class. We should have eaten all nights at the... More

This is a very quaint hotel/pub with lots of character in a picturesque village. The location is ideal, right next to the sea front. The room we had booked overlooked the harbour and was extremely spacious and very well furnished. We had our evening meal in the restaurant which was very good and offered a wide range of options. I... More

I arrived here at short notice, a refugee from a damaged tent. The room was smal but beautiful, and the bed more comfy than my bed at home. Great location, friendly staff, and the food was excellent too. I'm definitely going back.

My Husband and I stayed at the Rising Sun for 3 nights from 9th to 12th July. We paid £345 for our stay. Our room was very small.The bed was also very small. We were unable to eat in the restaurant due to poor organisation by the staff. There are better places to stay in Lynmouth which have far better... More

Picture postcard setting by the sea, bit difficult parking during the day because of the tourist in the village. However, the reception was excellent and the room had a lovely sea view. Rooms are petit, but that was OK - bathroom was clean and modern. The bar was busy and there was a great atmosphere. The best part of the... More
