What you will find is a very warm welcome, total peace and quite, sea views (we stayed in the four poster room - worth the extra) very comfortable beds and a fabulous home cooked breakfast. I loved the very relaxed atmosphere, it... More

The room maybe a bit small but all the rest: excellent! Good and helpful service, great location with beautiful views and close the coastal path, really nice athmosphere throughout the entire hotel, good breakfast in a beautiful room. We do recommend this!

Great host, helpful with advice for walks. We had a great breakfast, with freshly squeezed orange juice. The hotel has wonderful views and is in a good location for the coast path. Unhesitatingly recommend.

We stayed for five nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We have visited the area many times before but have always stayed in Lynmouth rather than Lynton in the past. The views from the hotel are spectacular and it is well positioned on the North Walk with easy access to the Valley of the Rocks and the centre of... More

This is a nice hotel with bags of character, as has been said, the views from the rooms are stunning. There are plenty of tea bags supplied in the room which to us is a major plus point as having to ask for extra is not something I enjoy doing. The room had a flat screen tv of acceptable size...
