Reviewed June 5, 2013

I stayed at the rockvale may bank holiday with my wife and daughter and the fact that I've never wrote a review before is compliment enough for this lovely positioned hotel. Run by two sisters from the fantastic breakfasts to a optional evening meal and well stocked bar could not find fault with anything.Thankyou for a memorable six night stay see you next time we are in Lynton.

Helpful hosts, generous tasty breakfasts , very clean, comfortable and attractive rooms...all in the heart of Lynton overlooking the rest of the village. One night we enjoyed a drink from the hotel's bar and the panorama of twinkling lights below. Another night we enjoyed the nearby Spanish tapas restaurant. We had two days of wonderful hiking along the South West Coast Path. Our hosts were knowledgeable about this longest coastal path in England and gave us good suggestions. They were hikes of outstanding beauty. On one we got to see the exmoor ponies racing by, manes flying. Exciting!

Room Tip: They have a web site where you can see what you would prefer.

The perfect place for a few days' stay in Lynton. Rockvale was welcoming, warm and comfortable. The food was excellent (thank you Alwyn) and Heather made sure that we were looked after so well. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean, and we really appreciated having use of the comfortable lounge in the evening (with its lovely real log fire). Oh - and the bar was good too....
I'd have no reservation about recommending the Rockvale - in fact you should book right now!

No complaints at all. We stayed in a family room (4 people) which was very clean and comfortable. Owners very friendly and helpful and good quality breakfast too. You are 2 minutes from the centre of Lynton and the cliff railway to Lynmouth is just down the road.

This hotel offers exceptional levels of service and cleanliness. It is easily the best hotel we've stayed in for the price. The breakfast is exceptionally good, and(although we didn't take advantage of it) they also offer an evening meal. The owners are very friendly, helpful and informative, offering information about the surrounding area. One really nice touch was that they made us a pot of tea on arrival and served it with a homemade scone.

A group of us stayed here for our annual walking weekend, and all enjoyed our stay.

The rooms were comfortable, the breakfasts lovely (and massive) and the hosts (Heather and Alwyn) were very friendly and welcoming. And it was great value!

The service was top-notch: help was given in everything from drying damp walking kit (when we got in from the walk) to serving us a whisky after (when we got in from the pub).

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 4 had a great shower. Room 8 just had a bath with mixer taps.
