Lynmouth is a delightful town and the Rising Sun is such a beautiful old character building with oak beams and cosy little staircases. We had room 4 which overlooks the harbour but is above the bar so if you are an early sleeper, ask for another room on booking. The room was delightful with a quaint sloping floor and warm... More

We stayed for a 3 course meal, 1 night stay and breakfast, on a special deal. The food was excellent, and no restictions on what we could order. We had a massive seafood platter for starter which we would highly recommend and would be a meal on its own, mains were great too. The service on arival and in the... More

My daughter and I only had dinner on one occasion and were delighted on all accounts. The food, the service and the price were all superb. Daughter had the baked shellfish and I had the fillet steak. The home baked bread rolls just kept on comingand were fabulous. I certainly hope to visit, and dine, again.

A very nice location at the harbour. Rooms with harbour view are definitely recommended. Very nice pub and restaurant - very good evening meal, breakfast a bit more "normal", and perhaps less than you would expect after the evening meal. Very nice rooms, full of atmosphere and spotlessly clean. Modern bathroom, with a shower that worked e3xcellently, a feature not... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay purchased with a voucher which included B & B and dinner. The hotel is charming, bags of character, friendly helpful staff and such a pretty location - our room had a sea view. I don't know what the rest of the rooms are like but ours was very pretty, cosy and lovely... More

I knew when we booked that it was £125 per night for bed and breakfast and we expected a good breakfast but there was not a vegetarian option for the cooked so we just had a full English without the meat thought it wouldn't have been much trouble to have put on a veggie sausage. Also the evening meal veggie... More

Yet again we have returned to the wonderful North Devonshire Town of Lynmouth to stay at The Rising Sun. We always try to stay in 'Shelleys Cottage'. This time we were delighted to find that it has been upgraded. The whole cottage has had the most amazing changes to compliment your stay. The cottage sits on its own with stunning... More

We stayed for one night only: we liked the room (one of the most expensive on offer) for his decoration, cleanness and charm. Yet, the heating was not working properly, which is not entirelyunexpected since it is a XIV century building. We dined at the restaurant and we enjoyed the food very much. The breakfast was a fest: I will... More
