The property is not new (200 years old) but is well maintained – everything is clean, painted etc. The rooms are quite spacious and well equipped – and clean !! There is attention to detail. The staff are very pleasant. This hotel feels ‘well run’. The dinner menu titles sound a bit ‘gamey’, but the included breakfast is faultless. Free... More

Thank you for your comments. William Sanford chose this spot in 1815 to build his Country Residence, for the same magnificent sea views that you have recently enjoyed. These views continue to delight our Guests. We are pleased you found your stay comfortable and look forward to seeing you again. regards Bill More

I booked this hotel to celebrate my husband 60th Birthday and Retirement. Bill could not have been more helpful. Any questions I asked were answered right away. All the family had lovely rooms with fabulous views. I booked 8 rooms. We had a lovely meal for 16 on the Saturday night. I recommend this hotel. Thank you Bill and the... More

We booked this hotel at quite short notice and were pleasantly surprised to be able to get such a good room - The Tower Suite. The room itself is large and very spacious while still retaining the charm of an older building and offers a (diddy) balcony with some good views down to the sea, the Lyn valley and Lynmouth...

Thank you for your comments. We are pleased you found our Louisa Suite comfortable, and that you enjoyed your stay. The sea views get better the higher you go, and the extra flight of stairs is worth it. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. regards Bill More

We spent 5 nights at this lovely hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. We had a spectacular view over the sea and coastline around Lynton and Lynmouth from our room and in the restaurant. We ate in the restaurant each night and found the food and service to be very good. We... More

The owners have spent a fortune renovating this old small lovely hotel. The views are wonderful and we thought it fantastic value for what it was. The breakfast rooms is newly decorated and clean and the views are lovely, breakfast is a bit of a scrum as the help yourself area is in line with the kitchen door and is... More

We arrived mid-afternoon and thought we might be too early, but there was no problem in being given our room, in fact we were up-graded to Room 12, a very pleasant room with a small balcony. It was lovely to be able to sit outside and take in the beautiful scenery. The room was comfortable and the bathroom and shower... More

The girls at reception and in the restaurant were most welcoming, polite and helpful. Both breakfast and dinner were fabulous. The view from our room was exquisite. I forgot my phone charger in the room and Bill was so good he posted it to me. Very helpful! We very much enjoyed our stay here.
