“Room with a view 2”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

This ist the best view on the bay you could get in Lynton, and a perfect start for a worthwhile walk to Lynmouth or Lynton. We were in room 5, not the most spacious, but with a large corner window and comfortable seats "in the first row". Prepare for some stairs.
We love the English custom of providing tea- and coffeemaking facilities in the room. Super friendly girls serving a good breakfast with choices for every taste.

Room Tip: Number 5 had a perfect view of the bay, but be prepared for some stairs.

Thank you for your comments. Your room being on the second floor was an extra flight of stairs to negotiate. The advantage, is that the higher you go, the better the views become. The windows of the Deluxe rooms face a different angle to those of the rest of the building, and give a wider angle sea view. We also have a Superior Ground floor room with private terrace. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to seeing you again. regards Bill

This was our second visit to the hotel and this time with the new owners. We had room 6 which is absolutely gorgeous. Three massive windows providing a stunning view. The four poster bed was very comfortable. The room is huge and very well furnished. The windows are in need of repair as they are rotten in places but it was not a problem to us - just probably part of the refurbishments in progress. The room was still fantastic and the staff all friendly and professional. We will be coming again and thanks for sending on the clothes accidentally left in the wardrobe!! Oops! Wishing you all the best in your new ownership of this lovely hotel :0)

Thank you for your comments. Since our initial refurbishment The Bay View room has become so popular, that I cant get the painters back in !! So further TLC will be squeezed in at a later date. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to seeing you again in the future. regards Bill

Views fantastic - Room 6 Bay View, panoramic.
We just stayed one night and I am in agreement with the other reviewers, such a spacious clean room, well appointed, great bed and linen, good room facilities overall.
I thought the breakfast was excellent, lots of choice for the size of hotel and the price & again a great view from the dining room.
I could easily have stayed for several nights as a great spot for sketching/painting.
If this is 7 of 9 it can only be a matter of time before it is in the top 3
One minor annoyance with the décor (but maybe done for speed on refurbishing as owner has only been in a month!) the same pictures in the dining room as in the bedroom - manufactured pictures too - shame given all the local talent and scenery.
6-7.30 did seem a short window for dinner so we dined out, but can understand this practicality from the size of hotel and number of staff.

Room Tip: Room Number 6 fab - u-lus

Thank you for your comments. We have indeed been in situ only 5 weeks, and have already completed a substantial refurbishment. Décor items such as further pictures will follow through as part of an on going program of upgrading. However, no pictures will exceed the quality of the view from the windows. We do have restricted slots on dining from a practicality point of view. However, visitors to the area should be aware that this is common practice in what is a very small twin town of only 2500 people. You may be assured of further surprises on your next visit, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. regards Bill

Stunning views. Must be the best in the area. Hotel staff welcoming and friendly. The room we had (No2) clean, spacious with sitting area, superking sized bed (all new) and newly fitted bathroom suite. All in all an excellent stay and will return in the future. Many thanks to all.

Room Tip: Room No2 has recently been totally re-furbished to a very high quality. Would recommend to anyone.

Booking.coms mistake was our gain. We got a transfer to one of the best small hotels we have ever stayed in. Our room was clean and comfortable with a sea view that was breathtaking. The bed was large and comfortable with crisp white bedding. The breakfast was well organised and severed quickly. The owners and the other staff were friendly and welcoming. At the moment they are working 24/7 to refurbish the building, upgrade the rooms, sort out the grounds in just a few weeks they have made an amazing improvements, I would love to go back and see the finished project. Good Luck Bill and Cita. Thank you.

The hotel is well located and has quite literally breathtaking views. The staff are very friendly and nice and the hotel generally lovely (some areas are in need of refurbishment - however this in NO way detracted from the warmth and experience of the hotel).

The one thing I did take slight issue with was the quality of the food in the hotel. The breakfasts were generally average. I ordered eggs benedict and when it came back, I couldnt see anything underneath the hollandaise sauce - WAY too much. Scrambled eggs another day looked like they were minced and my wife ordered a mushroom omelette which came back looking like the mushrooms were out of a tin (as were mine in the full english I ordered) and the omelette itself looked pre made somehow!

Dinner was better but my lamb shank was a bit dry / sticky (also broke a tooth on the bone but that is entirely my fault).

I would stay there again for sure because of the location and staff, but wouldnt go there for food.

Room Tip: Ask specifically for a bay room - that was enormous and had an amazing view (it wasnt ours!)

Thank you for your comments, your feedback is useful. Our Chef in her exuberance for her product can be over generous with the sauce, and I have a waistline to prove it ! Not quite sure how we would pre make an omelette, and the mushrooms are fresh. The Hotel is the subject of an intense refurbishment at the moment, since our acquisition 5 weeks ago. The focus of this has now transferred to the rear areas of the Hotel, to avoid any inconvenience to Guests. The rooms offered are now amongst the best in the town. By the time of your next visit, there will have been further substantial improvements, to return this charming listed building to its previous grandeur. regards Bill

Nice room and huge bed. Wonderful view to the sea. The staff was friendly as well. Only thing that wasn't working was the wi-fi in the room but it worked in the public areas, so that was ok. If I came back, I'd stay at this hotel again.
