“Lovely B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

• Well located

• Not easy to find parking, we ended up parking a fair distance away, best to drop your bags off and then park!

• Friendly welcome on arrival

• Nice room overlooking river with partial sea view

• It did smell a bit of chip fat, door to kitchen was not closed

• Good breakfast

  • Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

Excellent Bed & Breakfast guest house with balcony overlooking Lynmouth Harbour and sea view.
Riverside Cottage provides a superb breakfast, in their all day public cafe.
Very clean pleasant rooms, we have returned to stay in the same room, which is proof that this is a good Bed & Breakfast stay.
Very friendly owners.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view room, with balcony, overlooking Lynmouth Harbour, rather than a cheaper room, it...

Our room had a balcony overlooking the river and had everything we needed. Breakfast was in the cafe attached to the B & B and food was excellent. Could do with a refreshing coat of paint,although not dirty,but the new owners have only been in for a few months so its early days for them. Good luck

Passing through beautiful Lynnouth on a Monday morn, stopped in well appointed cafe and enjoyed excellent English breakfast. Two days later decided our tour should take us back to Lynmouth,, phoned up the riverside and booked 2 nights. Unexpected but welcome surprise to find it was our brekfast stop. The location is perfect. Our room (8) was small, comfy, clean and with a balcony, where relaxing wasn't optional but compulsory. Where better to watch the world go by, and feel the stresses float away., will be back ASAP.

This was a gem of a find, the location is fabulous the rooms and service were friendly and not intrusive. We came , we chilled and didnt want to leave. Just what the doctor ordered for our hectic lives. Fortunately, we had a repeat prescription and we are looking forward to going at the end of September.
Congratulations to Giles and Debbie for creating such a welcoming and charming atmosphere

This is an absolutely brilliant location, right on the river and the room we booked had a smashing balcony that overlooked it.

Parking although restricted a bit in busy times was not a problem and all day parking in one of the four car parks around Lynmouth and Lynton can be purchased very cheaply from the owners in conjunction with the council for only £ 3.50 for 24 hours per day.

This is not your normal House B&B as you are left to your own devices with a room and main front door key to come and go as you wish unhindered by any house rules as such.

More of a mini hotel/Lodge feel but without the bar or evening meal.

The place is extremely clean, basic, but to a high standard with coffee and tv, en-suite etc.

The owners are extremely friendly and accomodating and the adjoining very clean Cafe they own is a nice way to start the day as this is where they serve breakfast between 8.00am to 9.00am and the breakfast is very good indeed, fresh proper coffee and tea and a very good full english.

8-9 sounds short if you like a lie in somtimes as we do but believe me this is not a problem as you will be glad because the rest of the day can be filled with stunning views and walks that you might have missed had you lazed in too much by an hour.

Remember they also have to open the Cafe to the public by 10.00

Lots of lovely eating places on the doorstep with real ales and good wine and all in walking distance back to your abode.

All in all a Brilliant establishment in an incredible location with great value for money.

Would highly recommend

Room Tip: Ask for one of the three rooms overlooking the river.
