River Lyn View
Ranked #11 of 15 Lynmouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Stayed here with my dad whilst on a walking holiday in the area, hadn't booked any accommodation as we didn't know where we would be and were directed to this B&B by Tourist Information. Lovely little place which as the name suggests is on the banks of the River Lyn, both our rooms giving lovely views over the river and only a short walk 5 minute walk into the town centre. Both rooms were doubles with ensuite facilities, which we had to pay a very small surcharge for single occupancy, but still came in at a very reasonable rate. Bedrooms were very clean with a comfy bed, nice plump pillows and a very well stocked refreshment tray with biscuits, hot chocolate, plenty of milk and a tin crammed full of tea bags,coffee, sugar and sweeteners. The ensuites were both very clean and fully tiled, one having a modern corner shower the other a bath with a shower above, both were very spacious and had complimentary toiletries. The owners were both very nice and welcoming and were very helpful at recommending places for an evening meal. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic, you help yourself to cereal and juice if you want it and are then provided with a very substantial cooked breakfast which we both struggled to finish, followed by toast and the choice of tea and coffee. We were very impressed with the standard of accommodation and the attention to detail, this would be our first choice of accommodation if we are ever in the area again.

We have stayed at the River Lyn View for quite a few years now at Easter time and the welcome is always there for us. The accomodation is always clean to a very high standard and the breakfasts are cooked to order and excellent. The two owners - Carol & Ray - have great local knowledge and are friendly but not intrusive. We would recommend this Guest House to all - families, couples or singles. Location is perfect for walking, eating out and exploring North Devon.

My partner and I stayed here with my Mum and Step Dad who are repeat visitors at the River Lyn view as they love it so much, they have stayed in a couple of places over Lynmouth and have said this is the best place to stay by far, and I must say it lived up to all expectations. The rooms were spotlessly clean, spacious & cosy. The breakfast was wonderful and the tastiest eggs I have ever had. Little touches like offering fresh milk when we arrived for tea/coffee were most appreciated and I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you Carol and Ray for your contribution to our wonderful weekend in such a beautiful place.

We enjoyed it so much we have rebooked for Easter 2011.
Thank You

We recently visited Lynton and Lynmouth with our two young children, it was a rather last minute decision to stay there and we found it difficult to find somewhere with a family room available. We knocked on the door of River Lyn View and they were very very helpful and offered us a double room with the option of putting in a couple of air beds in for our youngsters. What a great idea! The owners were very friendly and accommodating and the room was very clean. The attention to detail and all the added touches made for a very comfortable stay. We had a lovely view over the river Lyn and it took only a couple of minutes to wonder down into the main part of the town. Would highly recommend, and especially to any families with young children as it made our stay more affordable and we were able to extend our visit. Lynmouth is beautiful! Delicious breakfast and thank you Carol for our crab bait!

I stayed at River Lyn View for one night, while on a walking holiday with my sister. We arrived feeling quite exhausted after walking from Porlock, and were made very welcome by the owners. Our room was very comfortable, and quiet.
There was a wide range of options for breakfast, all cooked fresh to order, and the service was great. When we left, the owner very kindly drove us to the start of the Coast Path, to save us waiting half an hour for the railway to open.
I would recommend River Lyn View to anyone looking for a quiet and friendly B&B, just a few minutes stroll from the centre of Lynmouth.
