We saw an advert for The Annexe in a Lyme Regis booklet on a previous trip and decided to go back for another stay in the area. We were very happy with the accommodation, it was very clean and spacious and a perfect distance from the seafront for walking. We were having such a great time, we asked if we could stay another night. We look forward to going back to stay again soon.
Lyme Regis is a beautiful location to visit. The Rosan is a bit of a hike into the village, but has the benefit of good parking. Only downside was that the wifi was not very good.
was like being at home,everything you needed.close to beach and town..comfy bed and spacious,lyme regis is soo nice,will go back next year for sure
Spacious and comfortable accommodation for two people. Well equipped with everything you might need. Lovely patio area to sit out in the sun. Nice fifteen minute walk to the town centre and to the beach. Good value for money. Would definitely recommended. Thank you for another lovely stay in gorgeous Lyme Regis.
Rosan The Annexe is situated in a quiet street a mile from the seafront at Lyme. It appears to be a converted garage and is on two levels, the kitchen and bathroom a couple of steps higher than the living/dining/bedroom area. There is a sliding patio door to the rear that leads onto the small private garden area that has a table and four chairs. Parking is across the street on a quiet cul-de-sac.
We arrived early afternoon after a 250 mile journey through heavy traffic and persistent rain, just as the sun came out. After letting ourselves in and unloading the car we decided to walk into Lyme. Warning: although our host Sandra T had stated in an email that it is a comfortable 10min stroll to the beach and sea front, Google Maps says it is a mile's walk and although it is all downhill I doubt anyone strolls at six miles per hour! We spent a very pleasant afternoon in Lyme and walked back.
That evening we shared a bottle of wine in the back garden as the warm sun went down, so we didn't notice anything amiss until the early hours of the morning. Other reviews have mentioned the comfortable bed. It is a small double, being 4 feet wide instead of the standard 4 feet six inches. It creaks, and the mattress does not dampen any movement so that when one of us turned over the movement transmitted through the mattress and shook the other person. Once awake, we found it impossible to get to sleep again. It is surprising how annoying the loud ticking of the clock and the warbling of the fridge can be when you are short of sleep. As it was August, it became light about 5:30 and the thin curtains did little to keep the light out.
In the bathroom when stood in front of the washbasin, all I could see of my face in the small mirror was the tip of my chin. I am 5 feet 9 inches tall. When stood in the bath to use the shower, the shower head was just below shoulder level. The shower pressure and temperature were good until my partner turned on a tap in the kitchen and I had to jump backwards to avoid being scalded.
There is WiFi provided but the signal is very weak. We found a WiFi booster that was switched off when we arrived, and when switched on it made no difference other than a couple of LEDs flashed on and off. We left it an hour to see if it would eventually boost the WiFi, but it didn't.
The following night we went to bed sober which was a mistake. After a while, my partner left the bed and tried sleeping on the chair at first, and then curled up on the two-seater settee. In the morning, although we had stayed for only two nights instead of the four that we had paid for, we left.
