“nice break”

we stayed for 2 nights and had a really nice break. We stayed in room 1 which has a bit of a sea view. the hotel is in a good location. Nikki, the owner was very welcoming.
The breakfast was fantastic.

The Lyme Bay Guest House was a great discovery. Happy to accommodate us and our two small children was a bonus as not all places are as willing! Hosts Nikki and Ian were very welcoming and friendly with excellent accommodation and with all facilities and amenities required. Wonderful breakfasts with plenty of choice and flexible serving hours if required. Its a pity there are not more places like this offering such a high standard but still maintaining a personal approach. Refreshing to find somewhere exceptionally clean and tidy and with parking for guests. Glad we found it and will definately be using it again along with The Smugglers Inn approximately 3/4 mile up the road where excellent food is served every day lunchtimes and evenings!
