We stayed at Martin Miller's Tors hotel last night - what a surprise. From the outside it looks like a standard 3 star hotel - until you see the elegant statues of 2 gorillas greeting you at the entrance and i am not referring to the friendly and efficient reception staff! Martin Miller has taken over this hotel and is in the process of creating a real style gem and his infectious enthusiasm has rubbed off on all the staff. The place has a great buzz about it . The food is superb - if you like filet steak with pepper sauce you won'nt find a better version in the UK. We were there on a fairly cold wednesday night in september and the place was buzzing . The town is charming and this is a hotel not to miss - it wont be long before the professionals realise how good this is so strike now before it is truely discovered.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A beacon of relaxation, set in stunning coastal surroundings, nestled against the rugged Exmoor coastline and set in 5 acres of woodland, The Tors Hotel overlooks the picturesque harbour of Lynmouth and provides one of the most striking views of the North Devon coast. Set against this dramatic vista there is the contrast of the warmth of the welcome and comfort provided by our characteristic hotel. Owned by Martin Miller, the creator of Miller's Antique price guides, The Tors combines the inspirational Miller style with inviting prices, framed by the beautiful coast of North Devon. This 19-bedroom hotel is crammed with Martin's antiques and curiosities. The Tors has all the hallmarks of his unique style. Roaring log fires, candlelit sensuality, books by the thousand and bowls of fruit and sweets, all washed down with a Millers award winning gin and tonic. In the AA rosseted restaurant you will find a relaxed atmosphere with superb quality food, an excellent wine list and probably the best views in the village. The whole family will find a warm welcome in the restaurant and as much care will be taken with your little one's ice cream as with your carefully prepared main meal. Outside relax with a drink on our newly opened Miller's Terrace while taking in the breathtaking surroundings. It is just a short 5-minute walk into the heart of the village and all it has to offer. The hotel is ideal for all the family and you can even bring your dog, who will enjoy the many splendid walks in and around the area. Unique and quirky yet stylish and relaxed the Tors is a special place to stay.
