Reviewed April 19, 2014

We booked this place on the recommendation of a pub ( Severn Bore ) owner and a customer in a Gloucester ( and confirmed on Tripadvisor , of course ) . We absolutely loved it . Biggest and best room that we've found in 3 weeks in a Britain . The view alone from our room was worth twice the price . Staff are great (esp. James) . Dining room was terrific for dinner and breakfast . Two complaints ; the room was pretty cold at times and the WIFI was very slow even though we were told the modem was in or near our room . However these are minor issues , otherwise the place was just great .

Room Tip: Number 4 is great and has a fabulous view .

My partner and I stayed at the Rock House Hotel for 3 nights at the end of February, and our stay was utterly wonderful.

We stayed in Room 4, as recommended when booking, and you can see exactly why it's recommended - beautifully furnished with stunning views to wake up to. Not a massive room, but equally not small - just right. The television is a little small, so had to move the table it was on closer to the bed when watching it, but actually with stunning walks and scenery surrounding you, you won't need the tv much at all (we only had it on when we returned from a couple of very long walks in the afternoon and the weather had turned). Additionally, you can select DVDs from the large selection that the hotel have, which I felt was a really nice touch (and personal recommendations from the staff which helped!)

The food was splendid, coupled with wonderful views out across the harbour. Great choice at breakfast with speedy service too, with the option of a healthy breakfast of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon (which I had every morning and was beautiful). We had dinner here on two of our nights, simply because the food was delicious but also so reasonably priced. The hotel also offer cream teas and cakes, which was much needed after one of our particularly strenuous treks on our third day!

The service was second to none - nothing was too much for the staff, and as soon as we arrived from the moment we left, we felt right at home. Having never visited the area before (and not doing any research on "things to do" prior to going), we would have been at a loss if it weren't for the staff's personal recommendations on walks to go on (equipped with printed directions) and tea rooms to visit. The hotel boasts a genuine warm atmosphere, and the staff can never do enough for you - we were made to feel like royalty!

Simply splendid, and we can't wait to return next year. Thank you again Rock House.

We stayed at this hotel recently for a 2 night break. Our double room was very comfortable, warm and well furnished. Shower room was fine, although a shelf/chair to put toiletries on would be helpful. Great breakfast, served by a very pleasant lady who was very efficient.
Only downside of staying here is the parking - although there is a parking space for each room they are quite "tight" and negotiating in/out was quite daunting.

Mike and team run a marvelous little hotel here. Our stay was perfect in every way; the room was clean, thoughtfully furnished with a walk in shower. A bonus (not seen before) was a combined TV and DVD. Although we didn't use the DVD thee were plenty of choices we could have used at the hotel. We ate dinner at the hotel 2 nights and both our choices were cooked to perfection. Menus include fish, curries and grills. They have a good selection of wines and the Irish coffee prepared by James was to die for!! If you are looking for a quiet family run hotel with excellent views and whose wish is that you enjoy your stay then the Rock House is for you. A word of warning (or blessing) mobile phones networks are unavailable but the hotel does have excellent free wifi.

Room Tip: ask for room 6 - sea view

First time at this hotel, stayed 2 nights. Lovely friendly staff, very helpful. Hotel is spotlessly clean, and tastefully decorated in keeping with the character of the house. Perfect location close to the town and all facilities.( Lynton and Lynmouth are picture postcard places) Lovely breakfast. Cannot fault it and would recommend it to anyone.

We spent two lovely nights at the Rock House Hotel in a room with a great view of the harbour and the oldest part of Lynmouth. As the sea was lively we had a fantastic views of a dramatic high tide as the waves crashed over the harbour walls. The room - complete with four poster bed - was really comfortable. Attention to detail, comfort and relaxation is a priority. Staff are friendly and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and for breakfast. As has been said before the breakfasts are exceptionally good using good quality, locally sourced produce. It was our first time in Lynmouth and we could have chosen a better base. While you are there take the railway up to Lynton and I can also recommend Le Bistro for dinner (see separate review). We will, I hope, be back here and will definitely stay at the Rock House Hotel.

we have just had an amazing 4 days at the rock house for husbands 65th. We are regular visitors sometimes twice a year. Great hospitality and good food. Nothing too much trouble. Such a beautiful place anytime of year. Waking up to the sound of water outside your room and seeing the changes was very restful. All rooms recently refurbished, we had room 4 which is particularly lovely. Well worth a visit. We will be back
