The new owners are carrying on the good work reported on in earlier reviews, and of course, the location is excellent. There are a lot of steep streets in Lyme Regis, but worst case you will walk downhill, not uphill, after dinner. If you are using public transport you will have to walk uphill to catch the bus when leaving,... More

I chose the Old Lyme in some desperation from internet search for accommodation in LR at high-season and virtually at the last minute. Fate smiled on me and I secured two nights at the Old Lyme. I cannot praise this accommodation enough, and see below for its many advantages........ 1) Low level location in LR - Yes, it's true! For... More

On arrival we were welcomed by the friendly hosts and every assistance offered to help with our luggage. We spent two nights (B & B) and had a spacious family room for three of us. The beds were comfortable and good tea-making facilities. Breakfasts were freshly cooked. We were given a parking permit for the weekend in a nearby car... More

My husband and I have just returned from a great 3 day stay at the Old Lyme Guest House. Sue and Sandra were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was excellent.

Lovely 300 year old building perfectly located right in the centre of Lyme Regis. Our room was a good size and spotlessly clean, same applies to the bathroom. Breakfast always freshly prepared and tasty (and thanks for leaving the milk out on Thursday morning for our 5am departure!). Complements also to our hosts, lovely staying with you!
