Don't believe everything you read. The Rock house hotel is in a superb location, the staff were all very welcoming and friendly and our room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast in the morning was excellent and cooked to order, so our experience was very good and will be returning in the future.

April 2015 just after Easter it was very misty and cold in Lynmouth but I found Rock house! After receiving the right key from reception I was into a lovely corner room with both Ocean and land views. Very comfortable room with good en-suite and the heating was adjustable and welcome. It was quiet, the bar hardly attended and too... More

Great food, with really pleasant service. I would recommend to anybody wanting good food at a reasonable price. Only letdown is the layout inside the main building as you can't easily see the sea. This is a shame as you literally are on the side of the harbour. That said the views from the outside tables are sublime. Overall a... More

We also stayed in Room 6 which has superb dual aspect views of the sea and the Manor Green. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay with my wife and 12 year old son. Top marks for the friendly owner Emilio, attentive waitress Autumn and the Spanish Chef. Breakfast was excellent - all cooked to order and brought to your table. Funilly enough... More

We picked this hotel by chance to spend our last two nights of our holidays, and we couldn't have been luckier. The Rock House Hotel is in the centre of Lynmouth and right on the water ledge and the views are all around stunning. We stayed in room 6, which overlooks the hotel green (it gets quite busy but we... More

We stopped here for dinner as we were staying nearby, the menu looked good and the prices 'reassuringly expensive' (i.e. Enough to expect decent food). What a disappointment! My first two choices were not available and the starter of smoked salmon and avocado mousse was awful. The salmon was straight from a packet, the avocado was more a gloop than... More

Lovely family-run hotel - with staff to match. Could not be closer to the sea. Excellent service particularly Rowan in the bar, and free parking was a bonus. Great base for exploring Exmoor and North Devon Coast.

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
