“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Being totally unfamiliar with this corner of England, the reviews on Tripadvisor were influential in persuading us to try out this hotel. It has an ideal setting on the cliff edge between Mortehoe and Woolacombe, far away enough from both to be blissfully quiet at night. Woolacombe has horrendous parking problems so it was a major bonus to be able to walk along the Coastal Path to the beach. Our room was immaculate, with a large comfortable bed, and a bath as well as a shower, which always earns good marks. Neither of us are big breakfast eaters but we could see the other guests tucking into huge and hearty breakfasts. The tariff was very reasonable for midsummer in a major resort. There seemed to be minimum supervision but it all ran like clockwork. My only regret was that the hotel enjoys sensational views but if one does not have a sea-view room one gets much less than the full benefit of them. We would definitely go back but would book early enough to get one of the sea-view rooms.

Stayed here 18 months ago after a recommendation - excellent. Have recommended to our families who again have had totally relaxing and enjoyable stays here. Would have been down this week but have had to cancel due to surgery being brought forward but will defiantly be down for our August booking.
1st class service, food, rooms and views
Thankyou

We found the Lundy House Hotel an ideal place in which to stay for our holiday. We explored far west as Tintagel in Cornwall, as far east as Minehead in Somerset and as far south as Tarr Steps on Exmore. The excellent hotel breakfast set us up for the day and the hotel was a relaxing place to return to after the day's activities. The room was extremely comfortable, our Bernese Mountain dog found the local facilities to his entire satisfaction. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful and were a credit to the hotel. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel as a base for exploring this area of the country.

The "Tibbets" deluxe room was amazing, it had recently been refurbished we were told, and although there was only the two of us, it would offer a family plenty of space. We relaxed sat in the bay window, with the french doors open and were captivated by breathtaking views. The garden was well maintained and so private and sheltered. Our experience was enhanced by the friendly and helpful staff Abby and Sara, who went out of their way to be welcoming and friendly. Excellent breaktfast with the best 'EGGS BENEDICT' ever!!!

Room Tip: Tibbets deluxe room great for couples and plenty space for a family

We stayed here for one night as we had a wedding close by.We were given a room with fantastic views over the national trust. The service was excellent and good value for money. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was BRILL!!!!! could not fault it. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: highly recommend the "Rat Island" family room.

We spent four nights at Lundy House immediately after our wedding and it was just what we'd hoped for - a quiet location away from the town centre, with beautiful sea views up and down the coast (perfect for sunset watching), a friendly welcome, a comfortable room, and really good food.

Apparently every room has its own character. We were on the first floor and our room was smart and clean, with a nice bathroom, King-size bed and French windows opening out towards the sea. We sampled different items on the breakfast menu every morning and each one was well presented and delicious. The service was very good and the owner gave us recommendations for places to eat out nearby.

The hotel also features pretty terraced gardens - very private and well maintained - leading down the hill to the coast path. In a few minutes you can be out on the open headland at Morte Point, with great views back down to Woolacombe Beach. Mortehoe is just a short walk up the road as well - a picturesque village with three decent pubs for evening meals and a great take-away place, as well as small shops, a historic church and a Post Office counter. The Ship Aground had a particularly warm and cozy atmosphere and great food (despite a long wait).

Room Tip: We had Marisco and found it very quiet and comfortable, with a great view, big comfy bed, double bat...
