We (Couple, 31 years) spent 5 nights at St. Vincent House. We enjoyed our stay very much as Peter and Daphne were very welcoming and always helpful when we needed advice on where to go or had questions about the UK in general.
The room was very clean which is the most important point for me when staying at a hotel. The room was spacious and the bathroom was ok, too (the shower worked perfectly).
There were also nice details which simply made us feel comfortable like for example the two cookies that were waiting in the room every day.
I also read the other reviews and must say that we didn't feel like we had to obey a lot of rules. They just asked if we could be careful with the linen meaning we shouldn't color the linen with pens and other stuff. And they asked us which time we would like to come for breakfast so the guests would not all arrive at once as they really cook the breakfast (eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, toast,sausages) I think it is self-evident that they have to plan ahead a little as it simply takes some time if one wants to eat it fresh and warm.
Another thing I really liked was their efforts on preparing a full English breakfast for me as a vegetarian (and it tasted great).
Another nice thing is the lounge where you can sit and just have a glass of wine and read or watch TV.
If we come to Lynton again, we will definitely stay here, only we would bookt he room directly over the phone as it seems to be easier for the hosts plus we could have asked some things ahead for example concerning the parking. But they also have a lot of useful information on their website.
It would make our review sound a bit more realistic if we could say something negative, too, but we simply can't think of anything.
