Just back from a lovely long weekend at Tors. This is our second trip in the last six months. It is a very well run hotel with polite, friendly and attentive staff (who remembered us from our last trip). We had a very comfortable, spotless and spacious room with a wonderful view over Lynmouth and the sea. Love the fact you have your own tea and coffee making facilities and plenty of biscuits, so you can sit, relax and enjoy the view. The bathroom was simple but has everything you need - again spotless, with loads of white fluffy towels and everything works well. The food is great: best poached eggs at breakfast I have ever had and a fabulous long Sunday lunch. The hotel has a lovely terrace over looking the bay and even though it was the beginning of March, we enjoyed an afternoon on the terrace, in the sunshine reading the newspapers. Lynmouth is a beautiful little village. Starting from the village, we had a very pretty 4 mile walk along the river and through woodland 'Watersmeet', and the next day a trip to the fabulous sandy beach at Croyde. The hotel is eclectically decorated in the Miller style, with plenty of areas to sit on comfortable sofas and relax with friends and enjoy the views and a cocktail or two. Thank you Millers for a wonderful stay. Looking forward to coming back again in the summer.
- 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.
