“Very good place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

It was a wonderful, friendly, comfy place to stay with the town of Lynton on the doorstep and within walking distance of Lynmouth. The breakfast kept you going all day with newly laid eggs from their own hens. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Room Tip: The top rooms have wonderful views of the sea.

Great accommodation (with free parking), spotlessly clean and beautifully cared for by two lovely landladies. Great breakfasts to set you up for walking or cycling around Exmoor & super-comfy beds to restore you!

My children 7&10 and I had a wonderful stay here while walking the SWCP. We were made very welcome,a great place was suggested for dinner, the room was quite wonderful, and breakfast was absolutely delicious. We are watching A B&B show on tv at the moment and just had a discussion about how much we enjoyed staying here and how we got to choose pancakes. Thanks very much for all the effort.

I visited Rockvale right at the end of the season and the place was as clean and fresh as if it had been the first day. The welcome was warm and felt I was among friends immediately. My room was beautifully furnished and the bed so welcoming.The food was marvellous and the choice varied. Nothing was too much trouble for Alwyn and Heather and I felt thoroughly pampered throughout my stay. The location is ideal and the surrounding countryside fascinating. I am looking forward to a longer stay next year.

We were greeted warmly on our arrival, despite being a little early, and among a large number of other arrivals who all turned up at the same time! The room (#5, no shower, bath only) was ready, and exactly as described at the time of booking, it was very clean and comfortable, giving us an excellent nights sleep. By the sounds of it at least one previous guest who has reviewed it didn't read the room description before booking! The breakfast was delicious, and cooked perfectly, with a nice selection of options to choose from. This was our first time staying in Lynton & Lynmouth despite being regular day visitors, if we're lucky enough to have another opportunity to stay, we'd have no hesitation in returning to the Rockvale again!

Very comfortable, clean and welcoming, with an excellent breakfast and great location. Normally that would be enough to give it 5, however I would also say that it was one of the best value B&B's I have stayed at. I am definitely going back to this one.

Another excellent relaxing stay with Alwyn and Heather nothing was too much trouble for them. They were very sensitive towards our needs following a recent family bereavement. We had our favourite room 2 with lovely views across Lynton.Since our last visit there is a very useful cupboard built in the bathroom to store toiletries.On rainy days our wet clothes were dried for us and we were welcome to stay in the hotel.There was always a varied menu for both breakfast and evening meal - lovely to experience such a high standard of delicious home cooking. In the lounge there was a welcome open fire by which to relax and drink our coffee.We stayed for 5 nights and were reluctant to leave.

Room Tip: Room 2 - comfortable, clean, good storage facilities and views over the town.
