Made welcome on arrival with tea and cake. Paul and Sally wonderful hosts. Our room on the top floor overlooked the river. It was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfasts served on the terrace. Would strongly recommend and will definitely be visiting again.

This is a B&B par excellence! On arrival, we were welcomed with a fresh pot of tea and homemade flapjacks and the wonderful service continued throughout our 3-day stay. Paul and Sally clearly work exceptionally hard, but make it seem effortless and no trouble at all.

The room was extremely comfortable and everything immaculate. Despite being at the front by the road, we slept with the window open and heard only the soothing sounds of the river!

We were fortunate enough to have breakfast outside on the terrace, which is the most perfect setting - right on the river with stunning views. And the food was perfect. So much better than the usual uninspiring, luke-warm hotel breakfast fare. Everything was fresh, freshly-cooked, delicious and in plentiful supply.

Paul and Sally gave us some great tips on places to eat and advised us to make the steep walk up to Lynton, rather than just take the cliff railway. It was well worth the effort.

I cannot recommend East Lyn highly enough. Lynmouth is a fabulous place to visit and we definitely plan to return as soon as possible. I just hope we can get a reservation! With comfort and service this good, word is bound to spread.

We arrived in Lynmouth for a couple of days away and ended up staying more. This was not only because of the beauty of Lynmouth but also because of the care and kindness shown by the owners, Paul and Sally - nothing is too much trouble for them. Our room was extremely comfortable with everything and more you might need, toiletries, bottled water, biscuits and a beautiful comfy bed. The full English breakfast sets you up for the day - beautifully cooked by Paul and presented by Sally along with answers to any of our questions on the area - very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to my friends and will be returning with a couple of them at the end of the summer - can't wait. Thank you again Paul and Sally.

Room Tip: Room at the top of the house with a window seat which was a lovely sun trap in the evening.

My wife and I stayed at East Lyn House Hotel for our Anniversary at end of May this year and we had a lovely stay, Sally and Paul the proprietors were great although we didn't see much of Paul as Sally must have kept him well busy.
Sally was very charming and helpful, on arrival at the Hotel Sally sat us down with a pot of tea and some warm flapjacks and we chatted for quite some time and then Sally showed us to our room on the first floor.
The room was very nice and the bed comfortable, tea and coffee facilities and just about everything you could need.
Sally had excellent knowledge of the local area and was very informative.
The following morning we sat for an excellent full English breakfast although there was a choice including Kippers or smoked salmon, we had home baked bread and more toast than you can shake a stick at.
All in all it was a very pleasant stay and wonderful to be amongst such lovely people.
We will be back!

We were Sally and Pauls first customers when they first started the B & B last year and we were looked after so well that we returned again this May. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was newly decorated and comfy the en suite shower was lovely, and we had a great view of the river. Such a lot of choice for breakfast and plenty of it.
We love the area and have recommended the East Lyn to all our friends.
See you again next year Sally and Paul.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back have a river view.

Last year my parents stayed at East Lyn House & raved about their stay & how welcoming the hosts Sally & Paul were.
This year my husband & I joined my parents and we also felt the same way.

Sally & Paul welcomed us warmly. We sat in the lovely guest living room and were served delicious homemade flapjack & hot tea before being shown up to our rooms.
Very comfortable beds, nice bright & cheerful room with a very good ensuite.

Breakfast is cooked by Paul & served by ever friendly Sally, 1st class full English breakfast & very nice mackerel & scrambled egg options to name but a few.

East Lyn house has fantastic views over the river & rocks and surrounding Lynmouth, very well situated.

Couldn't of asked for a better stay. Sally & Paul are a lovely couple.
We look forward to going back in the future.

Thank you,

Laurette & Chris Watson
