We have stayed here a few times and have always been really happy with the room, breakfast and friendliness. We have stayed in the larger room with cooking facilities and wet room and it's great to be able to spread out a bit. The bed was super comfy, Chrissy always helpful and friendly, breakfast delicious and plentiful and the weekend... More

After a fortnight in Cornwall we decided to book a weekend on our return home in Lyme Regis (one of my favourite places). I had trouble booking somewhere as there was a big sailing event that weekend - 12 - 13 July. I finally managed to book The Smuggler. When we arrived we found Chrissy (the proprietor) very friendly and... More

A nice B&B. I always check reviews with Tripadvisor before booking and there was nothing of note to be concerned about. Very informal and relaxed - just what we look for. Well located in the town centre for access to the beach and shops. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of toast and tea available - and more if you... More

This b & b was really nice. Central location to all the local are. Chrissy was very nice & polite. Breakfast was also very nice & had a lot to choose from. The room was so comfy & always clean after we got back from a day out. Could not have asked for a nice stay.

This was our third time staying at the Smugglers this year. Great to find a central Lyme B&B that welcomes dogs and kids that has on site parking! We have normally had one of the triples overlooking the street which are opposite the guest kitchen. The rooms have quirky decor but are clean and comfy. Access to a kitchen is... More

Had trouble actually locating the Smugglers but when i phoned Chrissy and she showed me the room I was delighted. A modern comfortable room with a fantastic up to date bathroom - very impressive. Well located near the sea the breakfast in the shop was the quirky bit but really great. All in all a great experience well done Chrissy

You have to remember you are staying in the owner's (who is very friendly) house so the dining room is their room and is cluttered. stayed in the outside cottage which is nice as it has an ensuite and french windows. But in the main house, the rooms are large but no ensuite. I am sure there is space to... More

Chrissy had arranged that I should call when I reached Lym Regis, and they would give me directions. This worked perfectly, and I was able to park the car behind the B and B, with access straight from the parking area. Renovations seemed to be going on, and I was sleeping in a lovely big bedroom above the main street-... More

I was appalled to read the previous review. The smuggler is quirky, but it is immaculately clean and the proprietors are very friendly without being intrusive. my daughter and I are regular visitors to Lyme Regis and the Smuggler has quickly become our first port of call. Even at short notice they will do their best to accommodate you. If... More
