If you want to stay in a real English place, this hotel is THE place. The view of the sea is just outstanding from all of the rooms and the service, especially at breakfast is excellent. You can choose from many different hot breakfast options and they serve you with attention to detail (even the ketchup is put into your... More

So pleased we picked this hotel to stay last week! Stunning views from our comfortable and squeaky clean bedroom. The highlight here is the home cooked food especially the breakfasts which we looked forward to every day. Best ever scrambled eggs and superb coffee. Everything is served with attention to detail in the attractive dining room overlooking the bay. If... More

Just stayed for one night but wish we could have stayed longer. Fantastic sea views with comfortable guest room. Everything very well thought out with friendly host. Breakfast huge and with great choice so sets you up for the day exploring North Devon. We were made to feel very welcome and will be recommending to friends and family.

It is over 20 years since we last stayed at this hotel nestled in the cliffs of north Devon and in that time the hotel and area have remained unspoiled by the progress in time. This is a very peaceful area with stunning views over the sea and nothing to hear other than the birds singing from dawn to dusk.... More

We went for our wedding anniversary and were warmly welcomed by John and Rose, (our hosts). Our room was very comfortable and spacious with an uninterrupted view out over the bay. A special request by my husband for specific flowers in the room was fulfilled by Rose with a beautiful display by her fair hand! Her husband John was incredibly... More

We have stayed here before & like it very much.We were a little disappointed with our room this time but only in that we preferred one we'd had twice before. There is quite a choice at breakfast & is excellent.

We stayed during the Easter weekend and were delighted to find that it was all we had hoped for. The view from our room was stunning looking across the coast and over the moors. I couldn't stop taking photos as the light changed and clouds softly cloaked the coastline. The room and bed was very comfortable, ( I called it... More

We booked in here from the Lynton tourist centre and were more than satisfied. We asked for views and it totally delivered - our room looked out over the coastline and across the water to Wales. The room was very spacious with a great bathroom with bath and powerful shower. Bed was comfy and room was quiet. We watched the... More

We stayed here for a long weekend at the end of April and were very satisfied with our choice. The atmosphere in the hotel is traditional, quiet and relaxed and our bedroom was clean and comfortable with fabulous views. The food was excellent with its emphasis on locally- sourced produce - the lamb and beef were especially good. The location... More
