“A slice of heaven in Devon!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

What an excellent stay, we couldn't have asked for more!
Cathryn is the perfect host, greeting us with tea and homemade cakes. From the get go nothing was ever too much for our host and was most welcoming.
The room (rose) was beautiful, clean and incredibly fitting for the perfect Devon escape, with beautiful views. Breakfast was also superb with a nice selection of fruits, yogurts and juices followed by a beautifully cooked breakfast ( menu has a good selection of cooked breakfast so no one misses out).
Everything was brilliant to the last detail!
Her knowledge of the town and Lynmouth made our stay even better.
No one should hesitate to stay at South view! Wether you want to go to relax, walk or just enjoy the views it is a perfect B&B and location!!!

Want to say a massive thank you for making our trip so unforgettable...thank you!!!!

My requests for a late check in & very early breakfast were perfectly accomodated, which was much appreciated. The Primrose room was lovely; comfortable bed, steaming hot shower, little chocolates to nibble with a cup of tea, & all spotlessly clean. It was a great start to my CTS adventure which went very well, & I'd recommend it to any CTS competitors (I noticed the route card pinned up in the hallway, nice touch!).

We were greeted at South View with a welcoming cup of tea by the owner Katherine. Our room was lovely and immaculately clean. Plentiful breakfast choices with a lovely cooked breakfast and a great choice of teas or brewed coffee. We can well recommend this B&B.

I can only agree with all the previous reviews regarding the friendly welcome, great breakfasts, and lovely rooms at South View. If I had one negative comment it would be the access to the car park. 'Interesting' doesn't do it justice, I actually had wheelspin on my first attempt to exit what feels like a 1 in 4 ramp from a standing start.
The really sad news is that Maureen & Rob have now left South View - I was one of their final set of guests. All we can hope is that they are as successful in whatever venture they move on to, and that the new owners are as successful in placing their mark. They have a tough act to follow

Room Tip: They are all good and the website provides accurate details of each one.

From the moment I knocked on the door to the moment I left, the service was outstanding. The room was very well presented with some very nice extra touches. If only all places were this good.
The Value was outstanding £34 Bed and Breakfast. I doulbt you will find a better breakfast in the Southwest, let alone Lynton.

Lovely friendly owners, making you feel welcome with a nice pot of tea on arrival in the guests lounge, which has books and games and information books, on the local area.
Breakfast was amazing !! so much on offer,from the buffet table as well as a superb cooked breakfast to order, was very delicious! it really set you up for the day!
The Lavender room was beautiful! light n airey, large, quiet,spotless, and comfy, with a tv, clock, bath and a shower with beautifully fluffy white towels. It also had, complimentary chocolates, biscuits, tea, coffee and toiletries in the room,which was a lovely touch.
There are lots of stunning walks in the area and it is in a lovely location. Lynton and Lynmouth being very picturesque! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!
Many thanks Rob and Maureen!

We had been camping but had to leave due to bad weather so were wanting a simple B&B for the night. We wandered into this place and were surprised at the low price considering peak season. The owner was really kind and welcoming. The room was ideal (especially after camping!), comfortable bed and good shower.

The real highlight is the breakfast which had a very extensive menu and provided lovely food and good coffee.

We were only there for one night but would highly recommend it if you're looking for a simple B&B which does great breakfasts and makes you feel very welcome.
