My boyfriend, parents and I have just enjoyed a wonderful August Bank Holiday weekend at Castle Hill Guest House. I know the area well and was thoroughly looking forward to our visit and the B&B exceeded expectations.
The hosts Alastair and Emma were incredibly friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They've thought of everything from wonderful toiletries in the bathrooms to a treat of jelly beans in the room. There was a huge DVD library and an 'honesty' bar which is a great idea for those wanting a night in.
The breakfast room is light, airy and modern yet homely and the food was tasty with a good selection of options and again, the hosts were always on hand; always willing to refill your coffee or get you more toast!
We enjoyed long walks up Watersmeet to the National Trust Café, along Valley of the Rocks and up and down the dreaded hill linking Lynton to Lynmouth - there is the cliff railway instead if your legs can't take it!
We stayed in room 3 (deluxe double) and the only negative (and it is a little one), was the low water pressure in our shower but it certainly did not impact our weekend at all and it would never stop us going back.
Castle Hill Guest House stands out from other accommodation in the area and you see that as soon as you walk up to the front door. We highly recommend this B&B, it certainly deserves all the awards it's won!
