I can't decide which I like the best: the staff or the view! The staff are lovely and so helpful. Some had wonderful stories to tell about life in Clovelly. Loved my stay here! The museum is worth a visit before you stay because it gives you the history of the place. JR the

My stay at this fantastically well located hotel was ruined by a tractor and trailer that drives outside the annexe 2 or 3 times every morning starting at 5.45 AM. Last year I was in the main hotel overlooking the harbour and it was very quiet.

Recently visited Clovelly on my motorcycle and after walking down to the harbour I called into the Red Lion. On a cold quiet winters afternoon I was politely greeted but told that they had stopped serving food. I must have looked disappointed because the lady offered to warm up

Thank you for your lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed the wild mushroom,kale and garlic soup. I am sorry that the furniture was being moved when you arrived, but the Harbour Bar was in the process of being closed down to start its major renovations the next day. Both bars will be refurbished, whilst not losing their original character. Hopefully you'll be able to come back and look at the changes!

My wife and I booked two nights here to see the New Year in. The Red Lion pirates fancy dress party was a great success enjoyed by all. Capt Jack Sparrow who ran the fun and games was excellent. We ate in the restaurant on New Years Day evening and enjoyed a flawless meal. The

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed welcoming in the New Year in Clovelly. I don't think there is anything quite like playing pirates in a harbour with Jack Sparrow! I am very sorry to hear about the other guests disturbing your visit to the restaurant on New Years day,but glad that overall you enjoyed your visit. We would love to welcome you back to the Red Lion in the future.

Always wanted to visit Clovelly and seeing that Red Lion offered a Christmas package, we jumped at chance booking two rooms for three adults and a child. We were warmly welcomed to the hotel, bowls everywhere brimming with satsumas, chocolate & nuts just like home. We were

Is this hotel/ area suitable for disabled people (wheelchair user). Thanks
There is a ground floor bedroom but there are 3 steps to access it and it is not a disabled bathroom. Clovelly itself is definitely not suitable for wheelchair users but if you are staying at the hotel you can drive down. The restaurant is also up steps but you can eat in the bar which is ground floor.
