Stayed at the Tors for two nights in October through Living Social. What a lovely place. Staff friendly and helpful, hotel felt comfortable and inviting. The views from our room were superb, we asked for an upgrade when booking so we could have a view and it was worth it. The food in the evening was lovely and service excellent. Beautifully presented and we had a really nice evening eating and chatting. Nice breakfast too but could I have beans and tomatoes and some mushrooms next time! Little touches like sweets around the reception rooms and books everywhere. Lots of clutter!! all added to the atmosphere, sorry didn't like the gorilla outside though!! Had an uncontrollable shower the first morning which threw leaks everywhere before we realized we were soaking the bathroom but this was very quickly and efficiently dealt with by a new hose fixed by the receptionist I believe (although you do need to put the seals in as well which had dropped on the floor, so we executed a quick additional repair!). We were told the hotel is to be closed next month for three months for upgrading and I must admit although comfortable and warm the bedrooms could do with a little TLC but this is no way affected our stay.Hopefully we will be able to come back so don't make it too expensive. Swimming pool would be nice it's a bit green at the moment.
- 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.
