We have been coming to this hotel for near to 15 years now. Rarely missed a year. Just stayed in Shelley's cottage with our dog for the first time (taking the dog and shelleys cottage). Lovely to be able to take the dog and he was left in his crate during dinner. Food was awesome as usual.The thing I love most about the place is it the one place I have been where I can truely relax. No mobile access, nothing. Beautiful location and very olde worldly hotel. That is my two-penneth. In answer to some criticisms on this sight though here are my thoughts. Too many dogs in the bar? Sometimes there can be but it is a small bar and if you allow dogs then you can't limit the number. Dogs on the table? That is not the fault of the hotel, that is a crap owner. Food prices ? Not cheap but in line with other local establishments. To be fair they are pretty good considering the location and quality (and portion sizes). Small rooms ?? This one made me laugh, its a collection of several hundred year old thatched fishing cottages linked together. Of course some are small and odd. Thats the attraction of the place. Each room is so different that they would need a seperate price per room which is daft. Luck of the draw or book early. Miserable staff ? Never when I have been there but I guess anyone can have an off day. Drinks are dear but they are everywhere. This is not a wetherspoons. You have to decide is this the sort of place you are looking for. If not then go elsewhere in Lynmouth, there are many other great places.
My one thought would be to have a sperate bar menu with different meals at slightly reduced prices as the bar area is more cramped and bustling and food prices should probably reflect this. Obviously still offer the restaurant menu at normal price but provide alternatives (they used to). Other than that, I love the place. If you want spacious, bright and clinical then go elsewhere. If you want quircky, unusual, quaint, magical then this is the place.
