Lynton Cottage Seaview Apartments
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Lynton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2013

This hotel is under new management and renovation work is being done while they have guests. The new owner came from Shirley Solihull which is where we live and so made for interesting conversations. Breakfast was very varied and seemed to cater for most tastes. The views from our room was amazing, we had a balcony with chairs and a table. Once this hotel is finished I am sure that it will be a very special place going from the renovations so far in the bar and reception area. There is no traffic to worry about and is very peaceful. I love Lynton & Lynmouth so i am bias :)

Room Tip: The corner room had a balcony so that yu can sit out and see the amazing view.

Thank you for your comments. Since your visit in the early days of our takeover ( 9 weeks now !), much has been completed. Our refurbishment efforts are now targeted discretely in the non public areas of the building. In the winter we will start the next project. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to seeing you again. regards Bill

Really nice hotel with an A star view, don't think it can be beaten from another property in the town. Bill has taken over in the past few months and breathed new life into the hotel. The bedrooms have been reinstated, very comfortable. Very good choice for breakfast, will keep you going for the rest of day. There is ample parking in front of hotel, the town is a stones throw away as is the cliff railway and fantastic costal walk, which is must do on your visit. When visiting the area again this will be our go to place.

Room Tip: All rooms I think have a sea view.

Thank you for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. All of our rooms do have the same magnificent sea views, excepting two. One of these has a part sea view, and we have a planning application in to add a balcony to the other. Because the views take in not only the sea, but with part of the coastline to one side, this makes it a very special spot. Our Guests happily spend hours just taking in the view. An excellent way to unwind from the day to day pressures of life. We look forward to seeing you again next year. regards Bill

This is a work in progress and its early days - but we thought it was a great already. Fantastic views, fantastic breakfast, fantastic beds and bedding and the fantastic Sarah - we had rooms 17 and 19 and they were very pleasant. We will be back - well done :)

It was with some considerable regret that we had to leave this very special hotel and all that it offered. The location is outstanding and the welcome we had from both Bill and his staff was something we shall remember well. The service was excellent, including the dining room (and what a breakfast!), the bedroom was very comfortable, clean and well decorated and contained everything we needed. Good luck to Bill and his family with their exciting plans for updating further. We shall return!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a full sea view.

This is a special hotel in an outstanding location.
Everything you could wish for is done very well indeed and with new ownership things will continue to be to an exceptional standard.
The welcome is warming, the room we had with sea view was beautiful, spacious, clean and well decorated.
Although breakfast was the only meal we ate during our stay, it was to a very high standard and the staff very attentive. I have no doubt dinner would be equally as good.
As a chef I appreciate good standards, This is a Very Good standard indeed.
Will we return? Without doubt sooner rather than later we hope.

Room Tip: Room 3, Exceptional views from this wonderful hotel.

Bill was a considerate host who really is working hard to further improve a beautiful hotel. certainly in 7 weeks they have accomplished much and our stay was really relaxing - from the discussions that we had with Bill the next set of updates should really bring this wonderful property into the 21st century.

I highly recommend this hotel - for views, host, comfortable beds (just the best beds ever!!!!) and a really relaxing holiday.

thank you for a really perfect long weekend break.

PS We will be returning to the hotel and are really excited about the coming refurbishments - good luck Bill you're doing a brilliant job. See you next year.

We know that some have suggested that the hotel is a little less than perfect but Bill has only been here for 7 weeks and is in the process of updating this property - and we wish him well. so don't be tooooo hard on a new owner who has just taken over.

Room Tip: Room 2 is larger than most with a good sized bathroom (due for refurbishment soon but immaculate an...

Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. This is a unique location with "probably" the best views in town and it is exciting to restore some of the charm to this Listed Georgian building. At the moment, any refurbishment works are confined to the outside of the property because we are full every night. Plans during the winter include some new bathrooms, and further upgrading of the exterior of the property. We look forward to seeing you next year, so you can view the changes. regards Bill

I stayed here as part of a short break around Devon. We enjoyed the comfortable surroundings and the clean, amply sized bathroom as well as the tasty breakfast. I think the windows were only single-glazed, but it wasn't cold at all.

Probably would go back, but only in about forty years when I match the age of the rest of the customers!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, highlight of the hotel.

Thank you for your comments. The new beds with 1000 spring pocket mattresses are a hit with all our Guests. For most rooms, the panoramic sea views come as standard. We are fortunate to enjoy the patronage of all age groups, with a variety of fold out beds and cots tucked away discretely. We hope therefore to see you again sooner. regards Bill
