This is a lovely hotel - it's off the main track so is incredibly peaceful. The views are beautiful and we were made to feel very comfortable and welcome - service that you don't get everywhere! The veggie breakfast was very good and Mr S certainly enjoyed the full English! If you enjoy walking - this is a perfect location... More

Visited Lynmouth for just a one night stay. The service was good and the host extremely helpful and friendly. But I would not call this a hotel, it is a guest house. We had a room with a lovely view across the bay but it was extremely small with a low ceiling. Lots of tea coffee and milk in room.... More

Enjoyed 7 nights of lovely peace and quiet in this traditional and delightfully wonky hotel. The room was more modern than was indicated by the general public areas of the hotel and very clean. Breakfasts were tasty and delicious every day, and served politely by the host. For walkers this is an excellent base to start from but also for... More

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

We have just come back from 3 nights at the Chough's Nest in Lynton. From our welcome on arrival to the directions provided when leaving the service was outstanding. 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
