“Great Location, friendly staff, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

We have stayed here quite a few times. It's a lovely building, the rooms are clean and decor in keeping with the hotel. The staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food is all local and they plainly have a great chef who uses quality ingredients as the food is delicious.

Its very dog friendly and so are the locals. Great location and if you are lucky enough to stay and a high tide when its windy you will have a spectacular display, with the water crashing into the harbour.

I thoroughly enjoy my stays here!

Room Tip: The sea views are the best

Fantastic way to start 2014!! We arrived on the thursday to be adviced by the locals to move the car to a high point could get wet!! They certainly were right we woke up at 6am to watch the waves crashing on the harbour. Fantastic sight to see the power of the waves. The hotel is divine with lovely friendly staff. Tim is a true gent getting wet to get our newspaper much appreciated. The food was excellent the liver starter, best i had ever tasted. Well done to everybody who made our weekend most enjoyable.

Room Tip: Room 2 faces the harbour a fantastic view.

Arrived at the 14th century 'Rising Sun' at dusk , and the welcome was warm and friendly.The room was very much to our liking. This is a quality step back in time in what is obviously a much loved and well looked after business .The panneling and decor throughout had a fantastic feel good factor.This was all topped off by a superb 3 coarse meal in the restaurant .Breakfast was equally good.A great nights stay!!

Visited just after Christmas 2013 just for a quick bite to eat around lunchtime whilst visiting beautiful Lynmouth and it's a lovely little unspoilt traditional pub right in the Harbour area of the village. Drinks and service were good and we ordered a sandwich each and all were very good indeed, came with a nice side salad and crisps too. Could possibly do with a bit of tender care and attention as well as a lick of paint but overall it's fine and will definitely return.

This small friendly hotel is excellent. The welcome is genuine and warm. The bedroom we had(12) had a fantastic view from the window, it was clean and comfortable with all you could need. The dinner we had in the bar was beautifully cooked, as was the breakfast. Lynmouth is a lovely town and if you fancy a visit I thoroughly recommend staying at The RisingSun.

Great pub in the harbour,small inside the bar area so in summer most people hang outside where you can watch the sea and surfers.

Idyllic really and worth visiting, food good too.Restaurant can be booked, and is a must in summer.

This is a great place to watch a storm and enjoy a nice atmosphere and really nice (if expensive) food..

Stone bench outside is the spot for people watching in the summer and you get to see all the surfers paddling out to the break.
