The owners of this beautifully kept Guest House Alistair and Emma are delightful, very welcoming and extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean, comfortable, well equipped and very stylish. The place is positioned in an ideal spot to explore the coastal path, Lynmouth and Lynton. We enjoyed some amazing walks along the coast and down the river from Lynmouth... More

This hotel (or should I say home) was outstanding! We received a friendly, warm welcome and everything you could possibly need was offered to you. We stayed in the large suite with balcony, we cannot fault the room as it was exceptionally clean and comfy. This hotel is well worth the money, if not under priced! It is situated in... More

This is a lovely B&B. We stayed as a party of 12 walking the South West coast path. It is perfectly positioned for coast path walkers of for those visiting Lynton and Exmoor. The rooms are large and spotless. The presentation and attention to detail are first class. Emma and Alistair are lovely hosts. They are very welcoming and nothing... More

Emma and Alistair run a lovely and welcoming guest house. Spotlessly clean throughout. The lounge and breakfast room/bar area were really nice. Honesty bar well stocked and works really well. Our room was a suite with plenty of space to accommodate a sofa and sofa bed for our 10 year old son in the adjoining room. Bathroom was a good... More

Emma and Alistair are running a superb guest house with humour, attention to detail, and warmth; nothing is too much trouble, and Castle Hill is clean, comfy and welcoming. We love this area, and will be back to this lovely guest house for our next visit - I only wish we'd discovered it earlier!

We took my parents, who are visiting from South Africa and celebrating their 62 wedding anniversary with us in the UK, to one of our favourite parts of England and a guest house that we measure all other guest houses/bed and breakfasts against. This is our third visit and we were welcomed like old friends. Alistair and Emma have a... More

Castle Hill Guesthouse was a brilliant choice of a place to stay. Emma and Alistair were wonderfully attentive and warm. They served a plentiful and beautiful breakfast.The rooms were great too and the place was as central to everything in Lynton that it could be. It is right next to a carpark and to the main bus stop so a... More

Our 3rd visit to Castle Hill in 5 years. Their standards are immaculate. This is probably the best b&b in Lynton & possibly the best b&b in North Devon. Hosts Emma & Alistair are welcoming & attentive. The place was still spotless & there were all manner of "extras" in our room. Dining room is really nice & the breakfast... More
