“Same high stanadrds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

We visited the hotel for two nights in early June, once again we found Heather and Alwyn welcoming with fresh tea and chocolate cake upon arrival. The general appearance of the hotel was clean and fresh, our room (number 4) was large with a very comfortable double bed and two singles, i personally think the two singles detracted from the otherwise spacious appearance, however i do appreciate that it would be very useful for famlies. After a quiet and peaceful nights sleep we enjoyed a superb full English breakfast which included some entertaining banter between Heather and the seven gentlemen walkers. The evening meal was equally as good considering they were asked to provide seven extra meals at short notice. overall i would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a peaceful break in the Lynton/ Lynmouth area as it's close to the village shops and a short drive to the valley of the rocks and Lynmouth attractions. We will certainly be returning very soon.

Room Tip: Rooms two and four look out over the village but all are quiet

Rockvale has everything you need for a happy break. We were greeted at the door by very friendly, helpful & well organised staff. I can't fault this place, it was clean, cosy, comfortable & accommodating. Room 2 has a lovely little balcony with fantastic views. There is plenty to see and do - walks, coves, tearooms (!) Very nice breakfast with lots of choice. Shame we couldn't stay for longer. Thank you lovely ladies!!

Room Tip: a room with a view is a good choice!

I can say with great honesty that staying at Rockvale was one of the most pleasant stays I've had. The hospitality shown by Heather and Alwyn was amazing. They made everybody feel like part of the family and nothing was ever too much of a problem if you needed anything. Everyday they offered advice on sights and happenings of the little town of Lynton and surrounding areas. The best breakfast one could ask for. I'm not a huge eater, but I could have licked my plate clean. My room was clean and comfortable and the only way I can explain the duvet is that it felt like I was sleeping in a cloud. An overall rating of 110% and will definitely go back to stay with Heather and Alwyn given the chance and I will most definitely tell any friends and family who wish to holiday in the area.

My stay here was based on the reviews I had read on tripadvisor and I was not disappointed. Heather and Alwyn are such beautiful and genuine people who so lovingly looked after our every need. Nothing was ever to much trouble and Alwyn happily and easily catered for our gluten, wheat and dairy free diets. The rooms are spotless as is the rest of there beautiful home and with the most comfortable beds, In the evenings your get to enjoy your cup of tea in the lounge room by the warmth of the fire place. On the day of our arrival I hurt my hip and ended up house bound for 2 days and both Heather and Alwyn went out of there way to make sure I was as comfortable as possible - which I was. If you are pondering a trip to Lynton I highly recommend it as it is a beautiful part of Devon with lots to see and do and then TREAT yourself to a stay at Rockvale you will be pleased and thank-full that you did. Alwyn & Heather thank you for everything you went out of your way to accommodate and look after me and it was and is greatly appreciated. I look forward to returning one day. Kirsten, May 2012

Room Tip: Just communicate your needs and Alwyn and Heather will look after you.

I highly recommend staying at the Rockvale. Alwyn and Heather really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. The accommodation was very clean and the breakfasts (my favourite were the pancakes) were just so delicious !! Rockvale is very well located and has some really good views of the town. There are some really nice walks around Lynton and Lynmouth, and the Art and Craft Centre just down the road from Rockvale is also worth a visit.

I required a single room that evening and was allowed to check in at Rockvale at 11am. The accommodation was very comfortable and the breakfast was made exceptional by the fresh egg from the owner's hens. The day after I had stayed there, I received £4 in the post, because she had inadvertently overcharged me-refreshing honesty!
