We booked for an overnight stay at The Rocks somewhat last minute as we made a whistle stop visit to North Devon. Overall impressions - a great stay! Firstly. Wendy and Martin are very friendly and welcoming. They've done a great job in refurbishing the Rocks, to create a very comfortable and clean place that combines classic themes with modern... More

Bed had nice linens but was not the most comfortable, as it had a heated mattress pad or something under the bottom sheet (still... More

Thank you toad55 for appreciating most of what we have to offer our guests, we constantly strive to make our guests feel at home and comfortable. The heated under pad you mentioned is actually an electric blanket that as far as I know hasnt been plugged in for months, so I really dont understand how you felt heat from it,... More

Very reasonably priced accommodation which included full breakfast in rock and roll styled room. Lovely people who returned our lost property. Would certainly recommend it for a beach holiday. Free car parking was great too

We stayed here for a friends wedding and it was perfect. Spotless rooms, modern and well kept. The breakfast room has a fun American diner theme and was really nicely put together. I thought that it may have been tacky but it was great. Food was good, location perfect as a short stroll from the seafront and we received a... More
