Reviewed 13 May 2011

We really enjoyed the friendliness and hospitality of Alastair and Emma and nothing was too much trouble. The suite we had was large comforatble and spotlessly clean with two big rooms and was very reasonably priced. As an old Victoran buikding the ceilings are high and everything is light and airy. Our best stop on a nine day trip. highly recommended

We stayed at Castle Hill over the New Year for a short getaway. This was our first trip to Exmoor and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Alistair & Emma made our stay very comfortable and I immediately relaxed after a hectic Christmas. We were immediately upgraded to a suite that was extremely spacious. The room and en-suite were spotless, comfy bed and the large hot breakfast was accompanied by more tea than I could drink that was a great start to the days sightseeing/walking.

Lynton and Lynmouth is an area of the country that I will definately go back to (beautiful scenery) and look forward to staying at Castle Hill again.

Room Tip: Ask the owners if there is a suite available

My wife and I stayed at Castle Hill over New Year and what a treat it was. A fabulous large room with our own sitting room, not normally what you get when staying in a B&B. Castle Hill is in a lovely spot with the high street on your door step and Lynmouth a nice stroll away.
Emma and Alistair were the perfect hosts throughout, making us feel very welcome and at home. The lounge at the front of the propery is beautiful, we had a roaring open fire every evening.
All in all the propery is spotless and Emma and Alistair serve a wonderful breakfast to set you up for the day. We cant wait to go back.

It wasn't long enough!
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel as though we were the only people staying at the hotel. Alistair & Emma were so friendly serving us tea and coffee in the lounge. 
Our room was spotless and well presented with a beautiful view,  bed and pillows were just right. 
The breakfast served with local produce, home made bread and muffins, I like my food and Emma your poached eggs were prefect! 
This was our first visit to Lynton and although the guys have not been here long they have certainly got to know the local area well, giving us restaurant reviews, sight seeing advice and even recommended some of the local walks. I took their advice and have to say they are so lucky to be in such a beautiful  part of the country
The hotel itself is in a perfect  position restaurants and pubs just around the corner!
On the whole a fantastic weekend away and I shall be back!

Room Tip: Ask for the balcony room

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and enjoyed a tray of tea and biscuits with Alistair and Emma before being shown to our delightful room. We were quickly made to feel totally at ease and that no request was too much trouble for them. The room was spotlessly clean with lovely views of Lynton. Bed was very comfortable with Egyptian cotton sheets. Breakfast was delicious, consisting of full English, cereal, yogurt and juices alongside freshly made bread and banana muffins. (I sneaked a muffin away for later). Alistair said the food had all come from the local area. We had the perfect break here and left feeling totally relaxed and refreshed. I plan to stay here again and have already recommended it to all my friends.

For once we picked the right one. Everything about Castle Hill Guest House was tip top. Emma and Alastair made us feel welcome and provided clean fresh accomodation with a superb breakfast to start the day. Plenty of help with maps for walking and places to see and go.
No hesitation in recommending this guest house, even managed to sleep soundly in a really comfortable bed.

Alistair and Emma are warm and welcoming hosts. Their newly refurbished hotel is clean and tastefully decorated. The rooms are very comfortable with thoughtful finishing touches. Reasonably priced. Breakfast is delicious and made with local produce. The hotel is close to restaurants, cafes, pubs, local shops and a car park. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Highly recommended.
