Just back from a 3 night stay at this lovely guest house. We had great room with a fantastic view overlooking the river and the sea. The room was of a good size and the bed was really comfortable , but the icing on the cake was the balcony. Breakfast was really nice and the owners friendly and helpful. Would... More

We had a large double room with a balcony overlooking the river and harbour. It was clean and comfortable and breakfast was very good with everything cooked to order. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again especially in summer when we could make more use of the balcony.

Arrived late into Lynmouth on a Friday night and this B&B was very obliging and made up a room while we had dinner at the Rock hotel opposite. Very clean well equipped room and had a fantastic view of the sea & river from the front of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent - the full Devon breakfast could not be... More

First time staying here - we liked it very much. We couldn't help thinking that the owner must have had a very busy season. He looked tired and didn't say much. Everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was brilliant. We didn't feel quite so welcome. However would go again.

We stayed for a couple of nights and were made very welcome by the friendly owners. Views over River and Sea. Breakfast fresh and cooked to order - lovely. Parked for free right outside on day of arrival and only had to move car at 12 noon the next day. 24 hours parking for £3.50 if you need it at... More

Lynmouth has been a favourite destination for me for many years. Riverside Cottage is now my favourite place to stay there. The rooms are comfortable with all you need including wi fi. The view is spectacular taking in the river and park over to the sea. What is nicer than sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea first... More

We stopped here when walking the South West Coast Path. This was about the closest place to the path we came on the holiday - right on it and with a lovely view over the river Lyn. We were offered excellent advice about where to eat and what to do and the breakfast was first class. Nice and busy during... More

A very pleasant B & B – decent sized bedroom with ensuite. The real wow factor though is the view from the bedroom balcony over the estuary and sea. Also the breakfast was superb! Free parking post 4pm was not a problem immediately outside and we had 2 nice evening meals in the nearby Rising Sun pub.

Situated in the middle of this beautiful village this B&B is way overpriced. Our room looked onto the rear hillside and was one of the smallest B&B rooms we had ever been in. There was no chair or other comfort as there was no room for one. The double bed was very small. A hand basin was in the room... More
