“Nice and homely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

We stayed in Rockvale for one night and had a family room. It was very nicely decorated in a seaside theme which my daughter loved. We also had a great view of the town from our room. We had a warm greeting and were looked after very well during our stay. There was a great selection for breakfast and both my daughters were very happy that there was such a selection (although it made the choosing process alot longer...should I have this, oh that sounds nice, mmmm I'm gonna have that, no wait...). The room was comfy, clean and fresh and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again should we ever visit that way again.

We (a family of 4) spent just one night there.
It was a very nice time. We had two rooms. Both were very clean with a nice decors and excellent views. The owner was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: I beleive all rooms are very good. We had a double and a twin on the top floor.

Perfect three days in this beautiful place. I didn't expected hens and books they were a good surprise! The room was clean, has a fab view. It is close to everything, but very calm. Friendly hosts with good advices about the surroundings. Lovely lounge with chess board. For me it was a perfect relaxing, I am sure that it wasn't my last time there! The mushroom toast and the pancakes were delicious don't miss them!

The location is perfect for being in the center of Lynton and very close to the Cliff Railway.
The level parking is atop of a steep driveway, the B&B offers great views from most of the rooms as well as a nice front patio area with outdoor furniture to take in the beautiful surrounding hills.
The breakfast is as good as any and better than most, and as long as you fill-in your request form the night before you will have a great choice of cooked breakfast, of course there are many cereals to choose from also.
I would recommend this B&B for anyone, except people with disabilities! all guestrooms are located upstairs. There is a nice sitting room and bar area on the lower level.
The staff are wonderful and very personable.
We would stay there again, and for longer than 2 nights next time to allow us time to hike the surrounding countryside... Thanks! Gary and Pam

We had a really lovely stay at this B and B. It is ideally located (and has parking) very close to the Cliff Railway and Valley of the Rocks, as well as near restaurants in Lynton. The room was very clean and had a fabulous private bathroom. The breakfasts were plentiful and there was a wide choice! Heather and Alwyn were always helpful with advice for days out.

It was a nice room for a family, with a beautiful view over the hills. There was a lovely breakfast, and with many choices available. Many walking routes nearby, where you got to experience some of the hills. Very friendly hosts.

We've just come back from an excellent stay at Rockvale. Everything just spot on, clean, excellent food from a very wide menu for breakfast and a sensibly priced evening meal menu, served in style. Rockvale has got the widest range of bottled real ales I've come across in a guest house, and joy of joys, at room temperature! The other great thing the proprietors were able to provide was a suitable 13 amp outdoor socket in which to plug our all electric car. Great!

Room Tip: Early bird gets the best view - which is stunning
