Reviewed 30 August 2014

we stayed in a seaview double, room 10 on thursday 28th august for one night whilst meeting up with family in ilfracombe. Our room was delightful and the views over the harbour wonderful. we ate in the very full restaurant in the evening and were glad to have managed to get a table, as the food was exquisite. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and had a lovely evening at the hotel. The service was also very good with the waiter talking though the menu and expertly describing dishes. Our breakfast the next morning was equally as good and lovely surroundings overlooking the harbour. would have no hesitation in recommending or staying again and wished we could have stopped for a week!!

My husband booked this hotel as a surprise for me. Well what a surprise it was!! We had a wonderful two nights. From the moment we arrived we new he had booked the right place to stay in Lynmouth. We had a lovely welcome, it all felt just right. a nice relaxed atmosphere, in the best location. we were so glad that we booked the restaurant for both evenings. The food was amazing, although it was a little bit expensive, however it was certainly very very good and worth every penny. we felt that all the staff were very professional and attentive. We had a drink in the bar before dinner, it was always quite lively with both tourists and locals. If we do venture down to Devon again we will definitely be booking the Rising Sun as our accommodation. we would just like to thank you all for making our stay just perfect.

Room Tip: Just book a sea view

My Husband and I stayed here for a week of relaxation. We were not disappointed. Although we have been to the area many times, this was a new place to stay for us.
The service is very good, friendly and respectful. The food is very special and served in the rather quant wood panelled dining room. Breakfast is so far from the 'full English or croissant' type. You can have full English if you wish, but also smoked salmon and scrambled egg and many things in between.
The room is a good size double and sympathetically furnished. It has a good size en-suite too.

The only down side might be that you need to remember to book your place in the dining room first thing. The restaurant is so popular, but first place is given to anyone staying with them.
Please remember this is an Inn and so there is chatter until closing time, but it is not rowdy or overly loud and stops as soon as closing is called.

I would definitely recommend this Hotel and have every intension of returning.

Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. And are very pleased that your thought our food was very special and that you liked the varied choice for breakfast. I do agree that the panelled Dinning room is very quaint and a lovely place to eat, especially at night when the tables are all laid up and the candles are lit. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

My Wife and I spent 5 nights at the Rising Sun during July. We found the Hotel/Pub suited our needs in every way. The Staff are very good in all areas and are always keen to assist. We ate in the restaurant on four of the evenings, every meal was first class. We should have eaten all nights at the Rising Sun, however we ate up in Linton on one occasion and that was a big disappointment!. The views from the front bedrooms are stunning, in particular the Sunrise. We Would have no hesitation in recommending the Rising Sun.

This is a very quaint hotel/pub with lots of character in a picturesque village. The location is ideal, right next to the sea front. The room we had booked overlooked the harbour and was extremely spacious and very well furnished. We had our evening meal in the restaurant which was very good and offered a wide range of options. I would recommend making a booking if you want to eat in the restaurant as it gets very busy, though if it is full you can still select from the same menu and eat in the bar area. Breakfast was equally delicious with a good range of hot and cold options. There have been several reports on this web site about the poor/bad attitude of the staff which I did not experience. The lady at check in was polite and friendly, offering the use of free road maps. The staff in the restaurant were all very polite and efficient. I overslept on the second morning and missed breakfast and the man on reception kindly offered to get me a fruit salad which I’d requested. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are very pleased that you liked you room. We feel very privileged to be located where we are and are glad that you also enjoyed the views. It is advisable to pre book a table in the Restaurant like you did as we do get very busy. We are pleased that you found the staff to be both helpful and polite. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

I arrived here at short notice, a refugee from a damaged tent. The room was smal but beautiful, and the bed more comfy than my bed at home. Great location, friendly staff, and the food was excellent too. I'm definitely going back.

Thank you for your comments about our friendly staff and excellent food. I will make sure that they are passed on. We look forward to seeing you again at The Rising Sun.
