We were invited to the Rock House Hotel by friends who were staying there for an evening meal. It was a bit of a reunion with four couples, including my wife's brother and his wife, (who incidentally lived in Lynton over forty years ago before emigrating to Wollongong NSW Australia). I was a little perturbed as the restaurant was rated... More

It was like sleeping in a lighthouse...being surrounded by water. I had written the following in my diary-"looking out at the Atlantic Ocean and the Bristol Chanel. Can see Wales in the distance through the side window. Feels like I'm in a lighthouse. The Lyn River is loudkly flowing into the sea in front of me. Below a window the... More

We called in on the off chance that they had a table available for five of us for dinner. The service was excellent and the staff were very welcoming. The location of the Rock House Hotel is stunning and the views are wonderful. The food was fabulous and the portions very generous. Great value for money and highly recommended.

We stayed 2 nights over the weekend. Our room, on the ground floor felt rather charmingly old fashioned and was very clean. There was a view out to sea (room 8, I think) from both the bedroom and the showeroom windows. Be sure to stay for dinner. A sensibly short menu had well chosen alternatives and both of us thought...

What a fantastic hotel, privately owned with friendly approachable staff and an excellent beer garden right on the sea front. Our room had a close up sea view especially at high tide. The food is of a very high Standard and the hotel is right in the village

We spent 4 nights and had the perfect get away...our room had two windows, one overlooking the sea and coastline and the other up over the hillside. The room was tastefully furnished and the staff could not do enough for us....we would definately return in the future.

Lovely small hotel situated near the seashore in the Lyn valley Lynmouth. We were fortunate to have been booked into Room 4 which we believe has the best views overlooking the harbour the river and seashore. An ideal room for watching the sunset in the summer. All normal facilities are provided and we enjoyed our brief 2 night stay and... More

We stayed at the Rock House for a second year in a row, and quite frankly it is wonderful. We chose room 2 this year:the 'superior' room and what amazing views we had. 'Double Aspect' as an Estate Agent would say.The Hotel has eight rooms that are delightfully clean, a pleasantly varied choice for breakfast, and all freshly cooked for... More
