“The Place To Stay In Lynton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

Stayed at the Castle Hill Guest House for 2 nights 16-18/06/11. Where to begin. The hosts were superb and could not have done more to make our stay perfect. The accomodation was excellent. Cleaniness was 2nd to none. The location was divine. The breakfast superb (MUSHROOMS WERE NOT WATERY) with endless quality coffee. The wine selection for a guest house was outstanding and excellent value for money. Traffic in rush hour was about 5 cars per hour passing - we know we sat and counted them 1 rainy day. I would recommend this guest house as a MUST visit. The hosts bring service, professionalism and friendliness back into this arena of accomodation. Alastair and Emma do not bend over backwards to ensure your stay is up to expectations they go far beyond anything we have experienced at guests house.

PLEASE VISIT THIS GUEST HOUSE IF THINKING OF STAYING IN LYNTON - YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

We found this Guest House by a search on Internet as central situated and very comfortable for cliff-walking and using the historic Cable Car to the harbour. The way of our Welcome was a great surprise to meet a young couple who is running this Guest House and who gave us a very warm welcome in her recently overtaken and completely renewad home. We can really recomman it.

This place is a perfect home away from home! My fiance and I were in the UK for nearly a month and never found another place like it. Alistair and Emma are excellent hosts and really go out of their way to make guest feel comfortable. The price is great and the food is wonderful. One morning we were pleasantly surprised to be served freshly made bread and delicious homemade muffins! They are both full of information and can make your experience in Lynton unforgettable. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The only problem with this B&B is that we never wanted to leave!!

Emma and Alistair are such a welcoming and friendly couple, we felt like we'd known them ages. We just called in and it didn't take more than a moment for us to decide this is where we wanted to stay. Spotlessly clean and they'd thought of everything for guest comfort. Although there is no guest parking we were given a voucher to get reduced rate parking just down the hill (we could see our car from the window). Breakfast didn't disappoint either, everything you could possibly want for breakfast was on offer. Most highly recommended.
