“A good base for North Devon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2010

We spent 3 nights at Ingleside, thus qualifying for the 5% discount. We had the Lynton room, which is a bit more expensive, but has a spacious sitting area with two very comfortable armchairs and also a balcony with views over Lynton and to Summerhouse Hill. The furnishings and decor were in first class condition. The bathroom was rather small - particularly the shower cubicle - and internal so no natural light in it. The welcome and service was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was freshly cooked and to a high quality. An evening meal is also offered Sun - Friday inclusive, which was good value and popular with the guests, though Lynton has a reasonable choice of restaurants (we can recommend the Vanilla Pod) which are all only a few minutes walk from Ingleside which is centrally located, but being on a private road does not suffer traffic noise. It also has it's own parking for all guests, not universal in Lynton/Lynmouth.

There is a good sized residents' lounge with a jigsaw on the go at all times and a really good selection of books - fiction, books about the local area and a quite a few local maps, walking guides etc. Ingleside does not have a drinks licence, but if you dine there in the evening you can bring your own drinks and they will provide glasses for you.

All in all, a lot of hotel type features, but at B&B prices with friendly service and an excellent location.

We would happily stay there again if visiting the area.

The Ingleside is a small family run Hotel and we stay there evrytime we visit Lynton. Our rooms have always been spacious and spotlessly clean. All rooms are en-suite with T.V's etc and there is a lounge with books, maps, music & puzzles for guests to use. The Ingleside is located near Lynton Town Hall on Lee Road and is therefore within a minutes walk of all shops, restaurants as well as the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway. The Hotel has a great view overlooking Lynton, the coast and Countisbury hill.

Unique Qualities: The breakfast is plentiful with lots of choices available and goes down well, especially after an early morning walk to The Valley of the Rocks. A 3 course evening meal is also available and is delicious and reasonably priced. The hotel is not licensed to serve alcohol but glasses are supplied for guests that bring their own wine etc. There is no corkage charge.

The Ingleside has a relaxed friendly atmosphere and Keith & Diana always make us feel welcome. If we choose to "eat in" Diana is happy to chill our wine during the day ready to serve with dinner. We felt at home soon after arriving on our first visit and we have visited many times since.

We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We have just got back from a lovely 4 night stay at Ingleside. Our room - Foreland Point - was, although a tad small, absolutely charming and perfect for a short break. Both the room and bathroom were spotless. Our room had a bath and shower but the shower is hand-held and the water-pressure was not great, couldn't be bothered with fiddling around with it so we resorted to baths, but this certainly didn't spoil our time there. The breakfasts were nice and filling - a perfect way to start the day and set us up for the days walking! We had dinner there one night and it was good home cooking.

The Guests' lounge is really comfortable and welcoming. There are plenty of books, puzzles and games to occupy lazy, rainy afternoons.

Keith and Diana are lovely hosts, knowledgeable about the area and keen to suggest things to do and walks to take. They are lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country and I'd like to thank them for allowing us to share it with them.

  • Liked — Warm, homely atmosphere
  • Disliked — The ring around the bath when it hadn't been cleaned one day

We were delighted by the welcome given by Keith and Diana and the friendly and personal service they gave us throughout our 3 night stay. Our room was spotlessly clean, and comfortable with a spectacular view and through the hotel were personal touches, such as books,, local pictures etc.giving the place character. We didn't have dinner as there are several good restaurants on the doorstep but enjoyed the quality breakfasts.
We will return.

Had a wonderful stay at Ingleside. The rooms and linen were clean and fresh and I had a new ensuite! The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming.

There was a wide choice for breakfasts and the evening meals were splendid, all home cooked.

I really liked the area, lots of walking and the coast is spectacular, so I wil be staying at Ingleside again.
