“"Wonderful"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This is truly a lovely place to stay in a perfect location. We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were lovely and clean and the food was wonderful, certainly the best by far that we have ever had and plenty of it. There is the added bonus of a car park and there is lots to do and some beautiful walks. We can not wait to return to the Lorna Doone and thank Neil, Sharon and their staff very much for their wonderful hospitality.

Thanks for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed yourselves whilst with us. Many guests enjoy the fact they can just park up in the car park and then explore the area on foot. We hope we have the pleasure of seeing you again in the future.

Very lovely location and a warm friendly welcome, especially for our dog Charlie. Room was lovely and breakfast was one of the best I've had in a B & B, even a sausage for Charlie both days. We hope to come back to Lynmouth and would definitely stay here again.

Stayed first weekend in November - our first time in Lynmouth and at Lorna Doone - we were greeted with tea and biscuits on arrival. Perfect location by the river and spacious, clean and warm bedroom. Great breakfast and dinner (optional) was delicious and all home cooked- chef Neil will spoil you. Hope to go back again.

The owners were very friendly and welcoming
The room was clean spacious, and the bed was comfortable but the pillows were very thin. The breakfast was plentiful with a good variety to choose from and the dinner which is optional was good value.Lorna Doone has it'sown car park which makes it very easy.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Lyne river have a really pretty view and if you like the sound of running wate...

After Day 2 on the coastal path, a long walk from Porlock, it was great to have a friendly welcome. Lorna Doone is easy to find and in a quiet location near the Path. Breakfast was fine, but dinner was not special. Rather expensive, although this may just reflect higher prices in Lynmouth & Lynton compared with the rest of North Devon.

We booked this B&B after reading the existing reviews on Tripadvisor.
At short notice, we were lucky to get room 9 with river views and twin beds / double option.
The whole experience was on of being very satisfied.
Nice and clean and tidy, great breakfast and perfect location.
We were made to feel very welcome and we would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to everyone.

This was our first stay at the Lorna Doone Guest House.
We would definitely recommend it. Neil and Sharon make you feel so welcome.
The food was fantastic, especially the delicious full English breakfast.
It is perfectly located in Lynmouth and with the added bonus of free parking.
We will definitely stay here again.
