We stayed 2 nights at Manaton Guest House and had a fabulous time. Location is fab as the nights were so quiet - we had our window open and didn't here a peep at night. We also enjoyed the seaview from that window. Terrific. A sound sleep was followed by plenty of tasty homecooked breakfast and a large caffetiere of... More

We had a three night stay at this excellent Guest House which we would highly recommend. From making our initial booking enquiry, during our stay to wishing us a safe journey home, John and Glenda looked after us and made us feel very welcome. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and we had a lovely freshly-cooked breakfast. Fantastic location,... More

We only stayed one night, but we were made to feel very welcome. The room had everything we needed and a great sea view. Only criticism was the bed was quite hard so we had an uncomfortable nights sleep. Everything was very clean and the breakfast was lovely. Thank you very much. Happy guests!

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us, sorry if you found the bed a little hard. We get a great many comments from clients saying how comfortable they find our beds, but of course not everybody likes the same thing. Hope that the rest of your trip was a great success. Best wishes John & Glen More

We stayed here with another couple over the Easter break. Lovely rooms with view over the bay at Lyme Regis. Breakfasts were very good despite John's disparaging comments about his wife Glenda's cooking!! Made to feel very welcome by our hosts and entertained by John's constant banter. He was very helpful about places to go and visit, even giving us... More

Stayed with John and Glenda again this year at Manaton. Had a great time, accommodation, food ( despite what you say about Glenda's cooking) and hospitality as good as always. Possibly see you later in the year, or next year for GOTB 2015. Many thanks .

We stayed at Manaton Guest House for 5 night during August and were very impressed. We arrived earlier than we should have done and were warmly greeted by John who helped us get parked up and showed us to our room. We had a lovely view from our room (4) right across the bay. The room itself was perfect. Clean,... More
