A last minute decision to take my mum to see Clovelly (on the recommendation of a friend - phoned up at 10pm on a Friday night to book rooms for the Saturday. The drive down to the hotel parking was....er....quite steep and narrow (for those of us more used to driving on motorways), but was worth it. A rather old hotel with a more modern extension added recently - we stayed in rooms 1 and 6 in the older part. Both rooms were impeccably clean and welcoming. We dined in the restaurant in the evening - and it was possibly the best meal I've had in the past year - and I'm fussy! The chef certainly deserves a large plaudit. I'd certainly visit again, either staying in room 5 (which I think has a balcony), or in the newer extension. We visited at the end of March, and by midday the town was filling up with visitors - I expect the place would be so manic in the summer months. Evonne behind the bar / reception desk gets my vote for cheeriest / most friendliest person on site. Oh, and I loved how the owner came down to breakfast and introduced himself individually and had a bit of a natter to guests. Many other establishments could learn a lot from The Red Lion.
