“Great Guest House. Lovely Owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. The room was large, very comfortable and a beautiful view across the river. We had booked dinner, bed and breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble - Neil even made my wife a chocolate mousse even though it wasn't on the evening's menu. The food was lovely and the breakfast was so substantial even I couldn't face the thought of lunch! We would definitely recommend this guest house to others.

Was a late booking only a few day ago but all was sorted out via e-mail even down to our evening meal. Only stayed one night but a great stay will stay again if in the same area.
Neil and Sharon are great hosts, we had room No2 small but packed with everything you required.Arrived at the front door was greeted by Sharon asking us if we would like a drink. Evening meal was as good has any top restaurant and breakfast first class all so.10 out of10.

As usual a warm welcome and excellent holiday. We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time exploring the superb surroundings of Lynmouth. Excellent food, room and service. Great for walkers, dog owners and people wanting a bit of piece and quiet. As usual we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and will be back again for more!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the sound of the river at the front and the view of the valley.

Very welcoming hosts. Pot of Tea and biscuits when we arrived, sat on the terrace chatting to Neil about the area. We had Room No.2 overlooking the parking area - no problem with this, we could still hear the river and it was very peaceful at night. Saying that, the room is quite small as is the en suite, nevertheless very clean and comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast choices were excellent, everything freshly cooked. (Yum!) The evening menu was so good we couldn't resist booking the 3 nights for dinner as well. Neil is a super cook! Neil and Sharon are friendly and communicative hosts and made our stay thoroughly enjoyable.

Thanks for your lovely review and your kind words about dinner. It is great to have good feedback about Neil's lovely cooking. If you stay again you must try one of our River View Rooms but we are pleased that you enjoyed your visit.

We have stayed here many times and its always a joy to return, lovely welcome from Sharon and Neil, good rooms our favorite is room 4 with a four poster bed and great view of the river. Neil's cooking never fails to please and Sharon's sense of humour is second to none. A great place to stay when in Lynmouth.

Whether you have 2 feet or 4 paws you are welcomed and spoilt from the moment you arrive until the final goodbye.
Rooms are large, airy and exceptionally clean with thoughtful treats left to cheer and spoil. Beds are comfy and ours was enormous - perfect for a good stretch after a day's walking. Our ensuite bathroom are spacious and pristine with lots of lovely treats available to pamper tired bodies and minds.
The food is exceptional - breakfast is well cooked and tasty - setting you up for the day. Dinner is outstanding and must not be missed.
This was our second visit and it was even better than last year. Such a happy and calm place. Just lovely!

Room Tip: Room 9 has an enormous bed and the most amazing river sounds.

I have reviewed Lorna Doone House many times, but it is always a pleasure to visit again and again. Sharon and Neil never disappoint, there is always a warm welcome waiting for all guests.
Prices are reasonable, menu is excellent and nothing is too much trouble, all rooms are en-suite and well furnished and very clean.
If you have never stayed here then you do not know what you have missed. Try it.

Room Tip: For river view rooms ask if available at time of booking. These rooms are very popular.
