We visted Lynmouth last year for a few hours on our way to Fowey.
It is a lovely place, quite quiet and a nice spot to spend a few days walking and relaxing.
So we decided to incorporate it into our Devon and Cornwall road trip this year and splahed out on a night in the magnificent "Bay View Room" .
It has huge french windows all the way around a large bay, providing a wonderful vista out to sea and a 6ft - 4 poster carved bed and well appointed bathroom.
We had a wonderful nights sleep with the windows wide open and the view whilst sitting up in bed drinking coffee in the morning could have kept me there all day, unfortunately as we were traveling to a wedding we had to get ready rather too quickly !
Bill has only owned the hotel with his wife for just over two months now and the renovations and redecorations go on, but without impact on the guests.
The rooms that have been decorated already are lovely, with new beds, mattresses, bedlinen, towels etc.
The staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
The breakfasts were well cooked and offered a good selection.
I wish Bill and his family every success in their new venture, the hotel when finished will certainly be a credit to them.
Our thanks for a lovely stay.
