We had a two night break over bank holiday here. The first impressions of Clovelly itself are stunning as you drive down the steep and winding road to the hotel's private carpark (with ample parking for all hotel residents) you catch a glimpse of the fantastic views out to sea. The welcome at the hotel was was friendly and we...

My husband and I booked a double room in the main building of the Red Lion pub for one night so we could walk 2 legs of the coastal footpath. We started at Hartland Quay, walked to Clovelly, stayed the night then the next day walked to Westward Ho! As both days were arduous and all-day walks we thoroughly welcomed...

Thanks for the lovely review. We never leave Yvonne on her own, she is always supported from behind the scenes as this is the way she likes it. We serve 40 to 50 breakfasts most days and she has her system - one that works best if we just let her run the show!!! Best wishes Nick

Stunning hotel with fab views from our room(no2) of the bay. Saw a porpoise on more than one occasion during our stay which was just a fab bonus. The staff are so hard working special mention must go to Keiron and Tess who work their socks off. Last night the bar was full and they ran around sorting things out....

This was a 20th Wedding Anniversary short break and managed to exceed my (already high) expectations! The Sail Loft room 18 looked straight out over the sea and the décor enhanced the tranquil atmosphere. My wife loved the soft furnishings made by the Clovelly Silk Shop, the huge bed was very comfortable and bathroom so modern and spotlessly clean. We...
