“We love it-keep going back.”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

Great location for walks in Lynton & Lynmouth. The hotel is clean and tidy, food is great. We can recommend the evening meals. Alwyn & Heather are fantastic hoasts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We try to return at least twice a year.

Room Tip: Ask for room 6 this gives you a view over the hills and sea.

The house is beautiful and fully renovated, with a spacious lounge and bar. Breakfast and dinner are super quality. Heather and Alwyn are perfect, friendly hostesses. For example, I noticed that families with children (all well behaved) and visitors from the US and Europe were particularly relaxed and comfortable in this environment. Having found Rockvale this summer, I have already been back for a second week/ten days and have booked another stay. It is by far my preferrred place in Lynton, having been visiting the town and other places on Exmoor for many years.

Room Tip: Some, but not all, rooms have stunning views. Best to clarify this when booking.

We regularly visit Lynton and this was the best place we have stayed in. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit.

A fantastic place to stay during your visit to the Lynton/Lynmouth area. The whole place looked as if it had been renovated very recently. Very clean and spacious. The rooms and the common areas (dining room, sitting room and bar) were all really nice. Good breakfast and excellent service. Heather was really nice and helpful. Highly recommended.

Heather and Alwyn are the best hosts we had since a long time. Breakfast and dinner are simply excellent. The house is cosy, the rooms are spatious and clean. The beds invite for long and recreative sleep.
This jewel of a B&B is situated in a wounderful region which from our sight seems to be made for pleasant walking (short and long distances) or just to sit at a place and enjoy the spectacular views.

We rolled into town after a long, stressful drive. After booking 10 hotels for our trip, I made this one for a month later than our visit. The ladies got us a room even though it was my mistake. We were so relieved. They also gave us medical advice and recommendations.
The ladies were helpful to us during a stressful time.

We thank both of our hostesses!

It is only a few steps away from the village center- with a lot of tourists. - And it was peaceful, quiet and so typical English. We are from Germany and we loved it! The food was excellent and we had a good variety to choose from. We could have dinner there too.

Room Tip: Unfortunately the ensuite room had no nice views, only to the back yard.
