“Lovely location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We stayed at this hotel recently for a 2 night break. Our double room was very comfortable, warm and well furnished. Shower room was fine, although a shelf/chair to put toiletries on would be helpful. Great breakfast, served by a very pleasant lady who was very efficient.
Only downside of staying here is the parking - although there is a parking space for each room they are quite "tight" and negotiating in/out was quite daunting.

Mike and team run a marvelous little hotel here. Our stay was perfect in every way; the room was clean, thoughtfully furnished with a walk in shower. A bonus (not seen before) was a combined TV and DVD. Although we didn't use the DVD thee were plenty of choices we could have used at the hotel. We ate dinner at the hotel 2 nights and both our choices were cooked to perfection. Menus include fish, curries and grills. They have a good selection of wines and the Irish coffee prepared by James was to die for!! If you are looking for a quiet family run hotel with excellent views and whose wish is that you enjoy your stay then the Rock House is for you. A word of warning (or blessing) mobile phones networks are unavailable but the hotel does have excellent free wifi.

Room Tip: ask for room 6 - sea view

First time at this hotel, stayed 2 nights. Lovely friendly staff, very helpful. Hotel is spotlessly clean, and tastefully decorated in keeping with the character of the house. Perfect location close to the town and all facilities.( Lynton and Lynmouth are picture postcard places) Lovely breakfast. Cannot fault it and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Choose your view - the harbour and town, the seafront - as the receptionist what is available they a...

We spent two lovely nights at the Rock House Hotel in a room with a great view of the harbour and the oldest part of Lynmouth. As the sea was lively we had a fantastic views of a dramatic high tide as the waves crashed over the harbour walls. The room - complete with four poster bed - was really comfortable. Attention to detail, comfort and relaxation is a priority. Staff are friendly and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and for breakfast. As has been said before the breakfasts are exceptionally good using good quality, locally sourced produce. It was our first time in Lynmouth and we could have chosen a better base. While you are there take the railway up to Lynton and I can also recommend Le Bistro for dinner (see separate review). We will, I hope, be back here and will definitely stay at the Rock House Hotel.

we have just had an amazing 4 days at the rock house for husbands 65th. We are regular visitors sometimes twice a year. Great hospitality and good food. Nothing too much trouble. Such a beautiful place anytime of year. Waking up to the sound of water outside your room and seeing the changes was very restful. All rooms recently refurbished, we had room 4 which is particularly lovely. Well worth a visit. We will be back

We have just returned from a great three night stay at The Rock House Hotel in Lynmouth, Devon. It was a family get together and we chose well. What a lovey place it is. Great location on the very edge of the tiny harbour and all the rooms were very tastefully decorated. the food was very good and the staff were lovely and they could not do enough for us. We were made to feel so welcome. Even out of season this is a must do and perfect for those who find the summer crowds too much. We wIll definitely return, especially as they have more improvements planned for the rooms in the new year to build on those behind the scenes changes they have done.

Attracted by the tasty Pasty description on the menu we were very disappointed with a sqidgy small pasty fresh from the microwave, and 3 very small prices of meat. 2/10. Suspiciously 2 pints were served up after ordering 2 halves and no offer to correct this. Spoiled our day. I will never return.
