“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 15 February 2010

I travel a lot with business and usually stay in one of the chains but with the closest being about an hour away I had one night at this hotel but I have to say that the room and en-suite were very clean and tidy, freeview television on a modern LCD television with the usual channels. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the staff were friendly. The view over the harbour was very nice even with it being winter. The only problem is lack of mobile signal in the area, not even GPRS signal so it would be good if wifi could be available for the business traveller to collect emails and do on-line work in the evenings.

We took advantage of the Winter special offer to stay again that this lovely hotel/pub by the sea. We stay in this area to make the most of the walking opportunities. The generous breakfasts really set us up for each day's walk. We also enjoyed a meal in the bar on the Saturday evening.

great hotel. good value. fantastic food. staff very friendly. I was down there for work and spent three nights there. The only thing that would have made my life easier as a business traveller was access to wi-fi to get my e mails but I ended up relaxing instead! Will certainly stay there again.

We recently stayed at the picturesque 'Rising Sun' in Lymouth, a pretty thatched 14th century inn. Prior to leaving, we had read several negative 'Trip Advisor' reviews and were somewhat fearful of what awaited us. We needn't have worried! 'The Rising Sun' is an absolutely super hotel, we could not fault it in any way. Our room was delightful with its rich colours and comfy bed; staff were extremely helpful, friendly and kind; the intimate, candlelit, oak-panelled dining room was a delight (always full), and the food consistently excellent. Set in a stunning location, what more could we ask? We'd definitely visit again!

We have just returned from a weekend at the Rising Sun, we have stayed there every year at least once, sometimes more. The food was excellent, and the hotel staff all very polite and friendly, nothing was too much trouble and they served you with a smile, we recommend them to anybody who wants a relaxing comfortable stay.

We booked the Rising Sun a few nights before going to Lynmouth and were given a discount of £50 off the usual rate of £150 for a couple B&B. For £150 you would expect a great room and excellent service. Starting with the positive the setting is great and the food in the bar is very good with a good atmosphere. The room we stayed in was very downbeat, old telly and a shower that dribbled water. The annoying bit was we had a nice meal in the bar and a good evening, however were kept awake until 1am with the noise from the bar which was from all the locals who frequent the Rising Sun at the weekend. They state that no food can be eaten on the premises unless it was purchased at the Hotel. All in all over priced with an arrogant attitude where the customer comes second, try the numerous other places locally before booking in here!!

Found this place by chance and booked in when only one room available. Sea Views amazing. Fantastic residents lounge next to our room with doors onto patio. Room had very tiny shower room but cosy and the views outside made the interior almost irrelevant. Fantastic meal in restaurant, great company in bar and all staff we met were first class. In two weeks of touring around south of England and Devon staying in 4/5 star hotels this is the only place I would return to. Shame we found it on our last night! Will definitely return.
