Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. Location is excellent with plenty of lovely walks and very central to Lynmouth's centre. Cliff railway to Lyton is a short... More

We booked a three night stay at Lorna Doone House having read the reviews here on Trip Advisor, we were not disappointed. Set in a lovely peaceful location (if you like the sound of running water) just on the outskirts of the village centre overlooking the East Lyn River. There is on site parking which is a bonus, the village... More

Decided to have a long weekend away for our wedding anniversary. Thought we would return to Lynmouth after many years. Picked Lorna Doone House from after reading reviews on Trip Adviser. We were not disappointed. We were made very welcome from the first minute by Neil. Had a lovey four poster bed, room 4, which overlooked the river. Room with... More

We don't often stay at guesthouses being seasoned caravaners. Whenever we do we always find ourselves feeling disappointed and wishing we'd taken the caravan instead. Not so this time - what a fantastic find. Wonderful welcome. Lovely room. Excellent hosts. Can't recommend it highly enough.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in March. On arrival we were impressed not only with the greeting from Sharon but also with the location, the room and the facilities. It didn´t just meet our expectations but exceeded them. There was absolutely nothing we could fault about the entire stay. Breakfast was almost more than we could... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that Lynmouth worked its magic and you had a relaxing stay. Thanks also for the lovely comments about Neil's food. He works hard in the kitchen to make sure that everything goes out just right and it is always nice when people comment on how much they have enjoyed our meals. More

From the moment we arrived, our hosts were attentive, and helpful. We were shown our room, which was delightful, and then offered tea and biscuits in the lounge. The hotel is only a stones throw from the town, and harbour, walking beside the river. Breakfast is plentiful, cooked to order, and very good, with copious amounts of tea, coffee, and... More

My partner and I spent one night on our way through to Woolacombe for a weekend of camping and surfing. We received a very friendly welcome by Sharon, who couldn't do enough for us. The off road car park was very useful as the car was left fully loaded overnight. The room was comfy and cosy with a lovely view... More
