I loved our time at the Tors, it rained all day, every day (we stayed 4 nights) but the view was still splendid, staff wonderfully happy and helpful and the food good. Our room, 301 had amazing view with a balcony to sit and admire over a glass of wine in the evening, the bed was very comfortable, room clean with new flatscrean TV with DVD player, it did seem a little dated in places (old hairdryer, well worn carpet) but im told that updating is planned as the hotel is under new ownership.
The downstairs is just enthralling, with all the antiques and curiosities, life size sheep statues, gorillas on the roof! the cinema room was a lovely addition (they do a meal and movie night which seemed like a great deal (£11) although we didn’t know about it, before hand but did see others enjoying it) as was the large deck outside the hotel to continue to admire the setting. In the evening when the candles are lit and the lights dimmed the atmosphere was relaxing and cosy as the rain beat down.
I’m looking forward to staying again and would recommend this hotel to friends and family, though the style in the public areas may not be to everyone taste, it is at the very least, unique and interesting with stunning views and very good serivce
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A beacon of relaxation, set in stunning coastal surroundings, nestled against the rugged Exmoor coastline and set in 5 acres of woodland, The Tors Hotel overlooks the picturesque harbour of Lynmouth and provides one of the most striking views of the North Devon coast.Set against this dramatic vista there is the contrast of the warmth of the welcome and comfort provided by our characteristic hotel. Owned by Martin Miller, the creator of Miller's Antique price guides, The Tors combines the inspirational Miller style with inviting prices, framed by the beautiful coast of North Devon. This 19-bedroom hotel is crammed with Martin's antiques and curiosities. The Tors has all the hallmarks of his unique style. Roaring log fires, candlelit sensuality, books by the thousand and bowls of fruit and sweets, all washed down with a Millers award winning Gin and tonic. In the AA rosseted restaurant you will find a relaxed atmosphere with superb quality food, an excellent wine list and probably the best views in the village. The whole family will find a warm welcome in the restaurant and as much care will be taken with your little one's ice cream as with you're carefully prepared main meal. Outside relax with a drink on our newly opened Miller's Terrace while taking in the breathtaking surroundings.It is just a short 5-minute walk into the heart of the village and all it has to offer. The hotel is ideal for all the family and you can even bring your dog, who will enjoy the many splendid walks in and around the area.Unique and quirky yet stylish and relaxed the Tors is a special place to stay.
