Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We don’t go to many B&Bs as not interested in breakfast so prefer hotels but this was fantastic. Great location, very clean and comfortable. The owners were so welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was lovely. It has fabulous views and walking distance to restaurants and down to Lynmouth too. I definitely recommend and would stay again if in area.

North Cliff Hotel is a fantastic place to stay when visiting Lynton and Lynmouth, not only does it have spectacular views across the bay, but it is sitting above the vehicular railway, which is fantastic to see from that viewpoint. It's only a short walk to either Lynton or Lynmouths main streets, which are both lovely, and the valley of the rocks is on your doorstep. The team were lovely, breakfast and room were great, we hope to return soon!

Four of us were invited for late afternoon drinks by the owner Steve, and my wife enjoyed a tour of the hotel public areas and rooms, followed by drinks in the main room. The views are terrific and although we were only passing through the area, the hotel location is absolutely perfect and breakfast on the terrace would be a perfect start to your day!

If you’re old enough to remember British hotels in the sixties, this will seem like a blast from the past - in a nice way! Whilst a bit of refurbishment might be welcome, this is a lovely hotel with stunning sea views. The rooms are fine if a little rudimentary and the main concession to the 2020s in a decent Smart TV. Restaurant facilities are limited but there are plenty of restaurants nearby and mentioned in the hotel’s in room booklet. If you fancy a drink from the bar, this is available on an honesty basis and the prices are barely more than those in supermarkets. Roads nearby are very narrow and often extremely steep with hair raising hairpin bends - quite an adventure!

My son and I stayed at the North Cliff hotel in August. We had the suite which has two bedrooms and the living area for us to work in. I have travelled all around the World and stayed in many hotels, most with excellent customer service. North Cliff however goes above and beyond the service that is expected. Steve and Rebecca don't just provide what is expected from a hotel, comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and an excellent service in providing what you need to stay in a hotel comfortably. Steve and Rebecca are so very obviously passionate about their hotel to ensure that everyone who stays there are made to feel special. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them. They want to ensure that they can do anything in their power to make your stay more than a home from home. The atmosphere is incredibly relaxed and extremely homely. I travel in the UK with my bicycle as I ride every morning to watch the sunrise. Steve would be waiting for me in the morning with my bike outside having checked the tyres and pumped them up as I had a slow puncture. He then went out of his way to travel to St Clears to buy me a puncture kit and fixed my puncture for me. An absolutely very special place to stay. If you want to feel spoilt and cared for please go and stay with Steve and Rebecca and their incredibly polite son Josh.

Owners couldn’t be more helpful, our room was right at the top with a view of the funicular railway, room was clean, everything worked, and the morning breakfast was lovely. There was an honesty bar which we used, and a boundless selection of dvds to borrow to watch. Parking was a little tight, but we managed. All in all, very pleased we chose this hotel.

Lovely homely older-style hotel which has undergone much improvement in the three years or so that it has been in the ownership of the hard-working and very friendly Rebecca and Steve. The hotel's location is excellent and it is well worth booking a room with a partial or full sea-view. There is sufficient safe on-site car-parking and provison for electric vehicle charging. The rooms are very comfortable (we were in No.7) and the breakfasts generous and excellent. Opting to take dinner as well at the hotel is the obvious thing to do as whist the menu is simple, the quality can't be faulted and the pricing very reasonable. A really nice touch is the 'honesty' bar. There is a nice residents' lounge. Pedestrian access to the Lynton shops and the cliff railway top-station is via steps to the rear of the hotel. These would likely prove challenging for the less able-bodied. The Devon coastline around these parts is stunning and after walking down the zig-zag path to Lynmouth, we very much enjoyed the 2-mile riverside walk to Watersmeet - the wonderfully-situated National Trust Tea Room. A super hotel destination to spend any length of time from one night upwards.

We just love the North Cliff Hotel. It is family run and Rebecca and Steve are great hosts and cannot be faulted on their hospitality. The location is stunning, they have made the house so relaxing, just wish we could live there! Great views, walks and this year great weather too! The food is dee-lish and very generous portions, make sure you are hungry! Can’t wait to return and catch up again! Thank you Rebecca & Steve, not forgetting Anna who is a hard working member of team North Cliff! See you soon, all being well! xx
