“River side charm”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We were very pleased with our stay here. The room was small but adequate and had everything one would need while away from home. The owners are certainly friendly and pleasant and do their most to make your relaxing without being too intrusive. The breakfast is a no-frills fry up that is very filling and tasty, we were walking 13-miles that day so it was a blessing. If there is was any niggling point it would be that there wasn't a great amount on offer for breakfest, but this is such a minor picking point. Considering how much you pay here, what you get represents great value, you can't go wrong.

Like many other reviewers, I found it very difficult to find any fault with River Lyn View. The room was exactly what we required and very comfortable. The usual tea/coffee facilities were enhanced by the addition of several varieties of biscuits, cocoa and fresh milk. The owners could not be more welcoming and the breakfast was excellent, our dog also received each day a sausage wrapped in foil for his lunch. In fact, we are returning in late June to stay at River Lyn View as we enjoyed our first stay so much.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay here. The owners were very friendly and helpful and produced the most magnificent full english breakfast that I have ever seen. Our room was great, clean, comfortable and with a beautiful view of the river. My favourite touch was the bottle opener we had in our room, perfect for the bottle I had packed to celebrate a night away from the children. We would definitely stay here again if the chance arose.

My wife & I really enjoyed our stay here. We had a very comfy room with a view over the river at a very reasonable £28 pppn in August. The full English breakfast was filling and tasty, and the owners had no difficulty providing my wife with a substantial vegetarian breakfast (inc. Quorn sausages). We will certainly stay here again if we come back to this area.

If staying in Lynmouth don't miss the open-top bus ride along the coast road to Minehead.

Room Tip: Room 4 is excellent IF you can negotiate the steep and twisty staircase to get there.

This guest house is situated in a lovely location. The view of the river is simply idyllic. The owner couldn't have been nicer and went out of her way to help.The room was very clean and well appointed with all the usual bits and pieces. The breakfast facilities are very good also. A brilliant place to stop.

Our Room 5 overlooked the street above the entrance, but was quiet and a lovely view. It was comfortable, though a little tight on space in the bedroom. The room had the electric kettle and hair dryer, with biscuits (cookies). The bathroom was adequately sized. The bed was comfortable. Our friendly, efficient, hostess had a pot of tea waiting when we arrived and served a full English breakfast, with vegetarian sausages for us. We would stay again.
