The Rising Sun is such a friendly hotel, conveniently placed right next to the harbour, lots of walks, all on the flat. This hotel is brilliant. The food is outstanding and such a variety of choices to chose from. Well done Clare, Tony and team. We shall return. Shelleys Cottage has incredible views of the beach and the valley. Your... More

Lovely hotel with friendly staff and cosy rooms overlooking the harbour. The restaurant was impressive with local fish the best idea. I really enjoyed the place and would definitely stay again next time I'm in the area. Just around the corner from the water funicular to lynton.

We booked 3 nights in Shelley's Cottage for the first part of our honeymoon. This was the most idyllic and romantic setting we could of hope for. The cottage was cosy and perfect for our first night as a married couple. The staff were very accommodating and the food in the restaurant was fantastic. We could not fault the hotel... More

Coincidence that it was Valentine's night when we arrived. Restaurant was tastefully decorated, staff perfect. Bathroom was so clean and shiny we needed dark glasses! Food rivalled best London restaurants. My fish was perfectly cooked.

Lovely Sat night stay in Feb - we stayed in room 7 which even without a sea view, was wonderfully cozy and had a huge shower - all of which was spotless. The place has a wonderful old feel to it, with uneven floors and ceilings emphasising the history. We had dinner there too and again it was excellent. Lots... More

We have just returned from a very relaxing couple of days at this hotel where we have dined on delicious meals served by very attentive staff. Some of the hotel rooms and areas could do with a little bit of updating and we had to move rooms on the 2nd night because the 1st room we stayed in had a... More

Just had a lovely stay at the Rising Sun . Our room was delightfully appointed and had a lovely picture window ,with views out over the bay. The bathroom was spacious and the freestanding bath was so lovely to wallow in after a long day. Staff were polite and friendly and the evening meal we had in the dining room... More

The view from our room was great, overlooking the sea & harbour, the only negative with that was lots of narrow stairs! The staff were amazing, so helpful. The food was fantastic. A little expensive but worth it. It was so peaceful and relaxed, would definitely return.
