Reviewed 6 November 2012

nice staff very friendly and helpful, great position with fabulous view, good breakfast and very good dinner.

the bedroom was clean and comfortable, the public areas are quirky and full of stuff, lots of hidden places to sit . Really liked the little conservatory area built into the hillside-very quirky and a nice place to sit and read.

free WI-FI a plus.as was being able to take the dogs.

Would definitely recommend and return

Thank you to the Millar family for a wonderful stay at the Tors Hotel Lynmouth. Wonderfully quirky hotel interior, comfy, cosy and friendly, with amazing decked terrace looking out to sea. Beautiful view from our sea facing room.

Excellent service and location but WOW - the food in the restaurant was nothing short of spectacular. One of the best meals I have ever had. Lynmouth is small and we exhausted the things to do on foot but I would MOST DEFINITELY come back to this hotel just for the food! (breakfast in the morning but superb as well!).

A hidden gem.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room!

We booked a 'Living Social' 2 day break at the Tors Hotel on the 23rd October 2012.
The location of the hotel is very good, we liked Lynton & Lynmouth very much.
On arrival we were welcomed by a very pleasant man on reception. He kindly upgraded us to a sea view room which was spacious with a lovely view, it was a very nice room with a very comfortable double bed.
We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent! The staff were polite and helpful. The food was rather expensive but well cooked and good presentation. I wish there had been more fish selection though.
I did feel that there was an overload of antiques in the downstairs rooms which was rather claustrophobic, less would have been better. Also, the conservatory was rather disappointing, with a poor outlook. The swimming pool was out of use which did not matter this time of the year, but it should have been hidden from view as it was not a very nice site.
Overall, it is a good hotel which I feel would be very attractive in the summer as there were smart outdoor furniture on a nice terrace. When the alterations are finished, I think it will be an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Definitely book a sea-view room.

Eccentric, charming, great location - all absolutely true but couple of issues to be addressed before perfect.
Entrance ! Arrived in pouring rain in the dark - took first sign Tors Hotel. Big Mistake - almost went home at that point. That entrance is 2nd carpark - very tight parking - entry by code only - tried to ring Hotel - NO SIGNAL AREA!!!. Persevered and went back to main road and found
proper entrance - allelujah! Charming, idiosyncratic and quirky in a nice way. Rooms due to be refurbed - cant wait. Waited and waited for waiter to bring menus and take order - food excellent! My
partner wasn't feeling great and wanted something easy and plain but no deviation from menu was offered, what a pity no empathy. Will go again - just hope food offerings a bit more flexible.

Stayed for 2 nights B/B and dinner at The Tors, Lynmouth in mid October in a group of 27 walkers .Fascinating hotel in quiet location with antiques in public rooms and attractive elevated views from dinning room, lounges and many bedrooms.
Good menu with generous helpings of food and excellent fish starter and main courses.Only adverse comments were too much salt used in some instances and some of the 27 found the duck course tough, although others didn't. No long waits for service despite the numbers.
Very helpful and efficient staff, warm and comfortable public rooms, ample parking and realistic rates at this time of year. Walks possible direct from hotel and easy access to Lynton and Lynmouth centres, albeit with some steepish slopes. Would certainly recommend.

Room Tip: choose a sea view room if available

We've just returned from a wonderful stay at the Tors Hotel. We arrived quite late in the rain but the lovely room with a bonus turret room was a wonderful welcome. The room was very comfortable, a generous space with everything we needed.
The decor is very interesting, In somebody else's hands it wouldn't work but in this hotel the mix of antiques and quirky objects creates a stunning effect.
Breakfast was excellent, my only quibble is that we were not offered a top up of our coffees.
Would certainly like to return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A beacon of relaxation, set in stunning coastal surroundings, nestled against the rugged Exmoor coastline and set in 5 acres of woodland, The Tors Hotel overlooks the picturesque harbour of Lynmouth and provides one of the most striking views of the North Devon coast. Set against this dramatic vista there is the contrast of the warmth of the welcome and comfort provided by our characteristic hotel. Owned by Martin Miller, the creator of Miller's Antique price guides, The Tors combines the inspirational Miller style with inviting prices, framed by the beautiful coast of North Devon. This 19-bedroom hotel is crammed with Martin's antiques and curiosities. The Tors has all the hallmarks of his unique style. Roaring log fires, candlelit sensuality, books by the thousand and bowls of fruit and sweets, all washed down with a Millers award winning gin and tonic. In the AA rosseted restaurant you will find a relaxed atmosphere with superb quality food, an excellent wine list and probably the best views in the village. The whole family will find a warm welcome in the restaurant and as much care will be taken with your little one's ice cream as with your carefully prepared main meal. Outside relax with a drink on our newly opened Miller's Terrace while taking in the breathtaking surroundings. It is just a short 5-minute walk into the heart of the village and all it has to offer. The hotel is ideal for all the family and you can even bring your dog, who will enjoy the many splendid walks in and around the area. Unique and quirky yet stylish and relaxed the Tors is a special place to stay. Take a peek inside the hotel by clicking through the image gallery to the right, or come and join us for a Martin Miller's Gin and Tonic on our fantastic sea-view terrace, or stay for a night or two and experience the inspirational Miller effect for yourself. ... more   less
