We spent two nights at the Sandrock hotel in mid November and would happily return. We were offered a tray of tea and biscuits on arrival and made to feel welcome. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was excellent - good quality marmalade, fresh fruit salad, and a well cooked 'full English'. My only small niggle was that... More

Although staying next door, I called in here for an evening meal. An excellent selection of local beers and ciders are available in this friendly Edwardian Hotel & Pub. Many of the original features have been retained and the large wood burning stove adds to the atmosphere in the bar. Very good value pub food is served. Friendly & helpful... More

Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated throughout. Comfortable beds. Generously stocked tea & coffee supply. Great breakfast selection of cereals and hot dishes. Pleasant friendly & helpful owners. Well stocked bar with good selection of beers. Nick & Jane have obviously worked tirelessly up-grading this property to its current high standard. We would not look for anywhere else if returning to... More

We booked a table for lunch (2 couples). Not a particularly professional set up but a decent real ale selection (four!) and choice of wines etc.. The couple didn't major on customer service - particularly Jane. Caution - very non-discript food (the appalling vegetable soup and tasteless ham were particularly poor today) but the cheese ploughman's and sandwiches were okay... More

An overnight stay for my wife and I and we found The Sandrock very relaxing. Met by Jane on our arrival and shown to our very clean and bright room. Down in the bar area we had a small drink before venturing into town which is only a short 5-10 minute walk away. The evening menu is fairly simple pub... More

A good selection of local real ales & warm welcome from Nick & Jane. Recomend the Exmoor Ale & the carvery. Never tried any of the local scrumpy that appears every now & then. What harm could it do, it's only apple juice. An ideal place to stop for a drink after visiting the Valley of Rocks. I will back... More

my wife and I stayed at the Sandrock in August and we found the place to be of a very very high standard the room very clean and furnished to a high quality. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The food cannot be faulted and is very reasonably priced. Would definitely stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled comfortably between the wildly rugged Valley of the Rocks and the quaint, picturesque village of Lynton and only a short Cliff-top Rail ride away from Lynmouth beach; The Sandrock offers good reason to take the weight off weary feet in one of our recently renovated rooms and indulge in local food and drink. On the Western Costal footpaths, The Sandrock is ideally situated to take advantage of Watersmeet, Woody Bay and the Brendon Valley, said to be the inspiration for the location of Doon Valley. For those who are Railway enthusiasts there is the Woody Bay Steam Railway only 4 miles away and equestrians can take advantage of the local riding schools to hire out a steed or to take tuition as a novice and experience the grandeur of the moor on horseback. Anglers may test their metal with all aspects of fishing available, ranging from course through game to every type of sea-fishing, in or within 20 miles of Lynton / Lynmouth. FACILITIES: •Bar with wood burner and comfortable seating •Games room - pool table / darts / board games •Restaurant offering homemade food in a relaxed atmosphere •Garden and balcony with additional seating •Baggage Store •All rooms are non-smoking ... more   less
