Possibly the shabbiest scabbiest room i have stayed in during my life. Wallpaper falling off No idea what was falling off the ceiling - i didn't really want to ask. I felt damp. Breakfast was a full English without the cooked part of it - but labeled as continental - a total joke. The landlords however were nice and friendly.

On the first occasion I had whitebait for starter followed by West Country Cottage Pie containing butcher's best Exmoor minced beef and my wife had beer battered Cod and chips with a salad dressing...

We enjoyed 2 good evening meals at The Crown - the food was good and the staff very professional and attentive. Our first visit was on a Thursday night and I noticed that the St Austall Ale “Proper Job” was off – I didn’t give it much thought but when we returned for our second visit on Saturday it was...

We went here a couple of times whilst staying in Lynton recently. We ate on the first night and the food was great value and home cooked too. The second time we went was Jam Night where some of the locals get together and have some fun playing all types of music. We were made to feel welcome straight away... More

I don't normally write reviews, particularly scathing ones but this was possibly one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. The rooms were dated and the bathroom so tiny that you almost had to dangle your legs in the bath to use the loo. This wasn't the worst of it however. I booked to have breakfast and told in... More

The room and en suite were clean and newly redone. Owner was friendly and gave us all the basic information. The food in the Pub was excellent and very reasonably priced. The pub gets boisterous after 8pm but closes by 11pm and the noise didn't bother us. Breakfast was adequate toast, tea served to you, while there was cereal, yogurt,... More

A venue that offers a reasonable room at a very competitive price. Wouldn't recommend for a long stay but a night or two would be fine. Breakfast was better than expected. If you want cooked you have to pre-order and pay extra. Hotel appears to be improving and is a good base for the area.
