Six of us went for weekend and it was great. The owner was very attentive in every way, breakfast was first class couldn't fault it in any way.
All rooms were different but lovely, clean and of course great views.
Only complaint was Steve Wright on the radio.

Stayed May 2011

We went ot the Rock House Hotel for a long weekend break. It was great. the staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, bright and tastefully decorated. There was a great choice for breakfast, enough to fill you up till lunchtime. The views are spectacular, it is well worth the visit.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a double room and is newly decorated with great views of the harbour.The sound of the sea...

Just back from a two night Easter break with my husband. Fantastic individual hotel, great staff, lovely clean room (we had no.7, lovely dual aspect room), fantastic location. We really appreciated the little touches that you don't get in hotels that are part of a chain, like the really nice biscuits on the hospitallity tray in the room, the nice wooden coat hangers in the wardrobe (not bent and buckled wire ones!) and the copious amounts of comfy pillows (nothing is worse than having to ask for extra pillows). The staff were friendly and took time to chat and point out places of interest worth visiting etc. if we had one little niggle it was the quality of the food in the restaurant as it was a little over priced for the standard. We will definately visit again.

Room Tip: Room 7 had a lovely dual aspect, really airy and light

Just spent 2 nights here before Easter. Had the benefit of good weather but imagine this would be great place in bad weather - very warm and comfortable. Staff friendly without being 'in your face' didn't really see much of them. Food very good - menu looks ordinary but excellent quality. Agree with all other recent reviews so won't repeat. Did great walk along river to Watersmeet and around the coast path - good pub on this route - the Blue Ball inn - again great food and drink.

Room Tip: Room 2 four poster and sea view

Lynmouth is an excellent base to explore Exmoor and the coast and even 'very off-season' had a lt of charm to it. Togther with Lynton, it's a 'real place', not entirley given over to holiday-makers. The location of Rock House was superb and we had a fantastic room with terrific views across the harbour. The room was spotless and well decorated, with plenty of storage space for a long weekend. We thought the food was very good and excellent value for money, certainly better than other neaby hotels that we have experienced.We had only intended to eat in for one or two nights but in the end, dined in for the whole stay.
In a small, individual hotel, you can always find niggles if you look for them but the thing that made them all disappear were the excellent staff. Without being silly about it, they couldn't have been more friendly or welcoming and they made the hotel stand out. Overall, they, plus the room and the location (and to be fair, the 3 nights for 2 offer) made the weekend outstanding value and really enjoyable. This was our first stay in Rock House, our best stay in Lynmouth (of many) and we will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 4 - views were outstanding.

We stayed here again in September 2011, two years after our first visit. So pleased to find our initial pleased reaction to this hotel was borne out in a similar experience the second time round. The staff were friendly and welcoming as before, rooms clean and comfy and we had a magical weekend.
