“Another lovely stay at East Lynn House”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This is our third stay at East Lynn House and Paul and Sally have been very busy! All the guest shower rooms have been redone with power showers and clean contemporary design. The rooms as always we're clean and lovely, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this guest house and will be visiting again in the summer, hoping for the same beautiful weather which showcased Lynmouth at its best.
Fantastic service throughout our stay.

My partner and I stayed just one night at this hotel to enable us to attend an event which included the showing of a film about the overland launch of the lifeboat Louisa in 1899. My partner is a great grandson of the coxswain of the lifeboat and we only heard about the event during the last few weeks. Hotels we have used before in this area were full so staying at the East Lyn House Hotel was a new experience. We were delighted with the welcome, the cleanliness of our room and the lovely breakfast - the bacon was very tasty indeed. The views from the bedroom of the river were beautiful. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We were in Room 1, which although fairly small, had all the necessary facilities and the views from...

We were greeted with a cup of tea, glass of juice and slice of flapjack as well as a friendly chat. The common rooms were comfortable and the layout was better, and more useable than most small hotels or guest houses that we encounter. The new owners took over last summer and most of the house is freshly decorated and the bedrooms are small but comfortable and pretty. There is good car parking. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Overall, this was excellent value at £70 per night and the service was beyond what we have received from hotels at double that price and more. In addition, there is one room which is dog friendly but don't let that put you off if you are not a dog lover - they only allow one well behaved dog in the hotel at a time. My only criticism would be that the ensuite that we had did not seem to have adequate ventilation and after we had both had hot showers it remained steamy for quite some time despite us leaving the fan on. Having said that, the shower was lovely.
Summary: clean, comfortable, great location, pretty decoration, everything you need and excellent friendly service.

Sally and Paul made our recent visit such a pleasure. Clean, co-ordinated room with all the facilities to make our stay comfortable and homely. The breathtaking views and wonderful position make it easy to explore what the National Park has to offer. Breakfast was a delight as was the welcome and service throughout our stay. A wonderful place to relax, feel at home and recover from the stresses of life.
Thank you so much Sally and Paul.

Room Tip: If you like the sound of water the rooms at the back are best.

We have just returned from a wonderful Christmas break at East Lyn house , Paul And Sally welcomed us into their beautiful home, they made us feel immediately relaxed and nothing was too much trouble, the house has a warm cosy feel enhanced by the Christmas tree and log burner
It was so festive. Our spotless room was lovely bright and airy with excellent
views
everything we could wish for, and fresh milk delivered to our door each morning. The breakfast was fabulous, a good selection and I didn't even have to ask for black pudding there it was on my plate and all lovely quality and served with a smile.This is absolutely the best and only place to stay in lynmouth it was FAB !!!

My wife and I were seeking a midweek break for a night and wanted somewhere we could relax away from it all. We were immediately made very welcome with tea and flapjack and Paul and Sally went out of their way to make this stay memorable for us. The room was really comfortable and homely and the food was excellent. Best B&B ever! Can't recommend it highly enough. We'll definitely be back.
