Don't be fooled by the 2*, the lack of a lift means it cannot get the 4* it warrants. This hotel has a courteous old world charm complemented by immaculate rooms & a sumptuous lounge with a cosy fire. The views are stunning & Lynton/Lynmouth are welcoming & interesting. If you want a peaceful night's sleep THIS is the place.... More

We booked a one night stay at Chough's Nest as a treat for our Wedding Anniversary. Wish it could have been longer! We stayed in Room 2 ('The Nest') - The sea view from this room is stunning. The bed was extremely comfortable and we would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was very nice, with a good selection, it was... More

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

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
