“"Lovely weekend break"”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Weather forecast was sunshine, so made the decision to go to Lynmouth and chose East Lyn House off the internet.What an excellent choice! Paul and Barbara greeted us with a pot of tea and we watched the rugby with them in the very welcoming lounge.Stayed in the very comfortable room 2 with lovely views over the river and out to sea.A great choice at breakfast, especially the full english.Very friendly hosts and we would definitely recommend to stay here!!

Room Tip: Room 2 has lovely views!

I agree with all of the previous reviews - nice friendly hosts, excellent location, tasty breakfasts, and great rooms/beds etc + great price. Our room was overlooking the river and the gentle sound of the river took us off to sleep each night. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: river view is best...of course

Paul and Barbara welcomed us into their B&B and we quickly settled in. Great room and a good size with Sea and River view( Room 2). Breakfast was delightful, offering a lovely choice of breakfasts but also size option which i found perfect ! my Husband went for the full English and it didn't disappoint !!!The Hotel a perfect location, central to village,Sea and river.
Just what we needed a quiet getaway in amongst a beautiful national trust location.
We will return and hopefully for a longer stay next time.
Thank you Paul and Barbara
Happy new year !

Spent an excellent birthday weekend here - made very welcome by Paul and Barbara on arrival and both ensured my weekend was memorable.
Very comfortable room, fantastic view up the valley, great communal lounge with a super collection of films, books and local history to browse and a great place to relax.
Breakfast is great, I found myself topped up till evening!
We are looking forward to our next visit in the not too distant future and I would certainly recommend anyone contemplating a visit to Lynmouth to book their room now.

Our trip through Wales Cornwall and Normandy was a journey of discovery. Our one night in Lynmouth was one of those times that we wish we had stayed for a few more days. Next time for sure. We were a bit late in arriving , but as we entered the parking area Paul and Barbara were there to meet us ...and helped us park our overly large car in the garage, Travelling with luggage for 22 days meant carrying overnight bags into B & B's and leaving the main baggage in the vehicle overnight. One less concern when the vehicle was kept in a secure garage. East Lynn House B & B was exactly as we had hoped it would be. In a quiet village, with great walking opportunities nearby, coastal drives, excellent hosts and of course a morning breakfast meal to prepare you for your coming day of discovery travel.
The welcome on arrival, the availability of snacks, tea and coffee, a room with a view of Lynmouth and lively evening and morning conversations in the common area with our hosts and other guests gave a feeling of welcome. Paul's culinary skills ( and chef fashion style ! ) combined with Barbara's morning smile and her keeping things organized and travel advice made us wish that we had planned extra days in the area. Next time we will do so !
Paul and Barbara, thanks for everything !

What a brilliant B&B/Hotel East Lyn House is. Well located in the stunning seaside village of Lynmouth and with ample parking, things go well from the start. Then when you get inside you find the very welcoming Paul and Barbara, a large and comfortable communal lounge, a range of books and DVDs including many interesting books on the local area and its history, a small but thoughtfully stocked bar, and an offer of a cuppa or a drink. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed (including flat screen TVs with built in DVD players for that DVD library) and most have breathtaking views, some both up the valley to the forest and down it to the sea. The hosts will help you with a local restaurant recommendation, or anything else you might ask! The breakfast was excellent - all local produce including sausages made by a local artisan butcher and eggs laid by the happiest hens in Devon. All this came at a price that was such good value for money we almost felt guilty! We will be back.
