Spent 2 nights at Chough's Nest Hotel for our 6th wedding anniversary. It is a lovely hotel and our room was a gorgeous dual-aspect room with a beautiful sea view. The bed was huge and comfortable and the breakfasts were very well presented and tasty with lots of choice. We were made to feel very welcome and could borrow maps... More

The food was exceptional and we took the opportunity to dine the on the first evening, making our menus choice when we booked in. We had a Baked Salmon which was... More

We - a Swiss couple in the fifthies - enjoyed two perfect days in Chough's Nest in Lynton. We wanted to stop in Lynton to go walking along the cliffs and in the Exmoor National Park. Both can be done directly from the hotel - either in the Valley of Rocks and furthermore or more inland in the moor (we... More

A lovely family run hotel. Spotless in every detail. The breakfast is very well prepared, with absolute tip-top bacon and eggs (plus all the rest). This is the hotel in Lynton that I would choose every single time. The perfect base.

We visited this hotel again. As always it was a wonderful stay. The hosts John and Rose Hodges give a very warm welcome and have great local knowledge. The breakfasts and dinners were superb. The views from the bedrooms of the the Bristol Channel are lovely and the rooms are well appointed. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Just returned from three nights at this hotel, if boutique is your thing then perhaps not for you. 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

Awarm welcome awaits you at the chough's Nest as soon as you step inside you know this place is very different. The staff at this family run business make you feel very welcome and cannot do enough to help you enjoy your stay. We had room 9 at the top of the house which as a sea view which was... More

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.
