“Cosy B&B with great hosts”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

Stayed here for three nights in June.
Great location near to the centre of town. Denise and Jeff are great hosts and were a mine of information for us regarding places to see and things to do.
Room was clean and comfortable and breakfasts very good. Denise was very accomodating when it came to the cooked breakfast, you could pretty much have what ever combination you wanted!!!
Parking was a bit of an issue when we arrived mid afternoon on a holiday Sunday but by 6pm there was plenty of free parking in the lot nearby.
Only one small issue for us was allowing dogs in the breakfast room. We knew it was a dog friendly B&B and we are dog owners ( didn't have or dog with us) but we thought that was going a bit too far.

Enzo and I took our humans on a holiday for a few days, and for us Hillside was the perfect retreat. We were pampered with hot sausages, beautiful walks along the coast and through the woods. Enzo is quite a small dog and the mountain streams are fast and furious for him, but for me (I'm a large dog) they were great fun.

Our bedroom was clean, tidy and warm and I am glad to say our humans seem to have no problem getting a good nights sleep (they need it after all the walking and cream teas)

Pubs, restaurants, shops all let us in , and in most cases even supplied us with biscuits and water. I must say the locals here are very civilized.

Our appreciation to Denise and Geoff for looking after us all so well, and sincerely hope we can encourage our humans to visit again

we enjoyed our stay with this lovely couple immensely. room was comfortable ,clean and quiet. the sound of the river sent us off to sleep every night. my husband was out early every morning walking the river to watch the wildlife, before enjoying a wonderful breakfast. no problem parking as we bought a weekly ticket which allowed us to park in local car parks.we do not have dogs and found no problems with the guest that did . house is a beautifully kept.like home from home.

We both enjoyed our week and our 2 Red Setters (Fleur and Breeze) certainly loved it, and the sausages for breakfast. If ever we visit that area we will certainly be back to recieve such a warm welcome. Fantastic service clean and tidy with lovely view of river from our room. THANKS AGAIN for a fantastic week.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and we couldn't fault it. Our room was lovely the breakfasts were delicious and our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful.
I don't think you could get a better place to stay than this at such a good price, the only downside was the parking but we managed to park on the opposite side of the river for no charge and it was only a short walk away.
The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in (including my own)!!

spent 2 nights at hillside house, lynmouth, room was clean and spacious the view from our room was overlooking the river which was a bonus, breakfast was huge plenty of choice, only downside was lack of on site parking and although clean the bed clothes had a distinct doggy smell. Having said that prob would stop again. Hosts were both very friendly liked a bit of a chat.
