Castle Hill Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This was our second visit and Alistair and Emma have improved on what was already a first class guest house. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, we even had a separate lounge area and a balcony. Excellent breakfasts are served in a newly decorated dining room with tables well spaced. Emma is a qualified beautician and they have added a new beauty salon for that special treat. I particularly liked the DVD library with a wide range of films available. This really is a special place to stay, with superb hosts, in an area of spectacular scenery.

Alistair and Emma very warm and friendly. Very knowledgeable about local area and things to do. You don't feel as if you are staying in someone else's home, in fact, a home from home. Their house is beautifully furnished, all mod cons, cannot fault it. Their rates are very competitive. We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Beautiful views from balcony suite.

Stayed 2 nights at this very friendly and comfortable guest house. The hosts made us fill welcome and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in the lynton area. Great Value for our stay. Location is ideal for Lynmouth, Exmoor, Watersmeet, Coastal Path and other localities.

Linton is absolutely gorgeous. Castle Hill is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable, the bed was great, lovely toiletries. Nothing is too much trouble for Alastair and Emma. They are the perfect hosts. Make sure you get a beauty treatment from Emma while you are there. I recommend the facial. Breakfast was lovely. Very accommodating when the first morning I got the times wrong, and the second morning had to catch a bus!

My girlfriend and I wanted to escape the urban jungle for a few days and hide away in the rural setting of Exmoor National Park. We could not have found a better place to stay than Castle Hill Guest House in Lynton. From the moment you walk in the door you are made to feel welcome and at home, nothing is too much trouble and the hosts are amazing. The accommodation is spacious and finished to a very high standard and is amazing value for money. We would highly recommend this guest house as it is a little gem! We will certainly be returning in the near future.

Warm welcome from Alistair and Emma, you were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. The room was fantastic clean and tidy, and the love put into the guest house was evident throughout. Also sure that this guest house puts many B & B's, even hotels to shame. The food served at breakfast is delicious and all locally sourced. We will be going back later in the year and not looking to stay anywhere else. We would highly recommend this guest house to any one.
