Had a very nice Monday to Friday break (yes it was a Shearings coach trip). Had read some of the reviews on here so was a little concerned. However, we loved the hotel and its location. The staff were all excellent and friendly. The food was good, with a good choice. I would have liked larger portions sometimes, but I... More

A friendly hotel in a great location. Lynton is a lovely place with Lynmouth situated below it. A great walk along the river to Watersmeet. The hotel would have been very splendid in Victorian times and many of its beautiful features are still visible. We had a refurbished room with a sea view which was clean and adequate. There was...

There is no doubt that this well situated hotel offers very good value for money but there are some small but nevertheless significant failures that detract. For example our room had recently been refurbished and looked excellent until we came to use the bathroom. An older bath without any shower attachment meant that had to borrow an old fashioned shower... More

I stayed on a three night break with my walking club. I thought it was very good value for money and all the staff were absolutely excellent. However, the hotel was shabby and needs a good lick of paint and maintenance. The room I stayed in was very shabby with paint peeling off and the power socket was hanging off... More

Lovely area good location. Unfortunately, like many other guests, from the coach trip who stayed here, both myself and my husband were ill and unable to enjoy the area as we had planned. Glad to be home and recovering from the experience.

As you may be aware from media reports, there is currently a national increase in the incidence of a gastrointestinal illness caused by Norovirus, commonly referred to as the “winter vomiting bug”.

We stayed at the hotel on a Shearings Coach Holiday and only booked a few days before so got a bargain price. Taking that into account we weren’t too disappointed to get a room (84) that hadn’t been refurbished as it was clean, comfortable and warm, but with paint peeling off the door and doorframe and the bathroom especially looking...
