“Perfect stay. Perfect hosts!”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

Prior to our stay we changed our date several times and Emma & Alistair were more than accommodating and helpful. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and the faultless hospitality continued throughout our 3 night stay.

There is lots of beautiful natural scenery to explore. Pointed in he right direction by our wonderful hosts (and given suncream!) we walked for a whole day exploring Lynton and Lynmouth.

The rooms were spotless and it was a very comfortable stay! Jelly beans at the side of the bed was a great little touch!
Breakfast is made to order and nothing is too much for the hosts.

We would definitely come back!

Just to say we have just got back from a week-end stay with Alistair and Emma, and were overall incredibly impressed by the standard not just of the accommodation, we had a wonderful room with a very comfortable super-kingsize bed! and a lovely view, but the personal care and attention given by Alistair and Emma, who were incredibly kind and attentive and treated us like friends of the family!. We had a great (very filling!) breakfast and they took time to chat at breakfast and give us lots of useful info about places to go to, even advising where we could get cheese and cheap petrol!. Myself and my husband were very impressed and hope to return very soon..

We had a great couple of days stay at Castle Hill hotel, Alistair and Emma were fantastic hosts and made us feel so welcome throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble! Breakfast was tasty and plentiful, the room was very clean and spacious, and the location perfect to wander around the lovely village of Lynton or pop down to lynmouth, we'd recommend anyone to stay there!!

We came from Beds/Bucks for a friends wedding and stayed for two nights. Both Emma and Alistair did everything to ensure we were happy. Everything was just as you'd want it. Nothing seems to be too much for this lovely couple. They supply local information, expected weather, tides, events and attractions. You are made to feel as if you are being waited on in your own home. There really aren't words to describe how good they are. This is a must use Guest House if you are ever anywhere in the area. We will certainly be using them again whenever we return to the surrounding area as those two simple days seemed like the most relaxing we've had. This truly is a little bit of heaven.
Also we left a piece of jewelry behind, we called them and it had been put aside whilst they looked for our details to return it to us. Now that is something you don't see anywhere.

We originally booked this guest house for two nights but ended up staying four! It was so wonderful we had to come back and spend the rest of our trip at Castle Hill! I broke up my review into sections to make it easier to find the information you need.

Owners-

The owners, Emma and Alistair, do everything they can to make your stay comfortable. From the moment we walked in the door they were extremely genuine and welcoming. You can tell right away the passion they have for their business and the area they live in. They are very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and what it has to offer for visitors. We both felt like they went above and beyond to help make our stay memorable.


Bedrooms/Bathroom-

We had the Large Balcony Suite room for both of our stays. The suite has two rooms- one large sitting area with a nice flat screen TV... It also leads out onto the balcony! The bedroom has a large bed with nice bedding, vanity, wardrobe, iPod docking station and a double window that overlooks the town of Lynton (and also lets in a nice breeze!). The bathroom has really nice toiletries that are kept in large bottles so they are much easier to use than those little travel sizes you normally get! The most important part is that the room was extremely clean... I mean spotless.

Breakfast-

Breakfast was really nice with a good selection of cereals, fruit, juice etc. The hot breakfast was cooked to order and we both thought it was excellent.

Lynton/Lynmouth

I fell in love with these towns because they are so beautiful and idyllic. Make sure you take the Cliff railway... it's a great alternative to driving down to Lynmouth! It's only a short walk from Castle Hill and was open until 8pm so we had plenty of time explore and get back up to Lynton. There a boat trip that leaves in the morning to take you around the area... its a great way to see the cliffs from another angle! Also, the valley of the rocks is really something to see!

This was just a really nice relaxing holiday with perfect hosts in a perfect location. We definitely recommend it!

We stayed in the Large Balcony Suite and Suite, and the rooms were just perfect. The bedrooms, private lounge and bathrooms were extremely spacious and immaculately clean. Alistair and Emma were genuinely friendly and helpful, and at the same time very professional. They will make your stay as comfortable as possible and more. They are the perfect people to run a hotel. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Large Balcony Suite and Suite are extremely spacious.

I could fill the page with a 5* review, but I'd only echo all the fantastic comments. Stay at Castle Hill and you'll see what I mean when I say.....just "Perfect" in every way.
