Lynton Cottage Seaview Apartments
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Lynton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We stayed in a Superior double room which came complete with a beautiful double bed, corner bath and a stunning view of the sea. The room was immaculate, of a high standard and very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, we had traditional devonshire fry ups which were very tasty. The breakfast room also has a brilliant view. There is a bar and a very cosy guest lounge complete with books and games for quiet evenings in. The hotel is right in the centre of Lynton and minutes from the cliff railway that takes you down to Lynmouth. The area was fantastic and I wpuld definitely stay here again as all staff were very helpful and friendly. Definitely a must when in the area!

Room was very nice and well presented. It was clean and had all extras that you would expect. The bed was a dream, very comfortable and very big. Bathroom was again very clean and well stocked.
Dining room was also well presented, clean and the food excellent. There was a good choice for breakfast and a fair choice for dinner.
All the staff were very welcoming and pleasant.
The communal areas were also well presented and clean.
There is also a small area to the front where you can sit outside and also some lovely gardens, where again you can sit or wander. Smokers converge in the garden which is fine as the small carpark is between the hotel and garden.
Slight niggles - the TV kept losing the signal on the BBC channels and it would have been nice to have internet access in the room although it is available in the common area.
Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you want to take advantage of the fantastic sea view, stay in one of the rooms in the front of th...

Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have scheduled the TV contractor to point the aerial back to Wales, from which a much stronger signal can be received. Exmoor and transmitters of any sort, don't get on very well together !
WIFI is also scheduled to be rolled out to all the rooms before the end of October. Your room with part sea view, is one of only two rooms in the Hotel, that don't have a "full on" sea view. We have submitted an application to add a balcony to this room. So lots more improvements by the next time we see you. regards Bill

Very pleasant experience with helpful and friendly staff. Evening menu slightly boring with the same vegetables every night. Bathroom on the dark side as not all lights in good working order but understand they are all due for refurbishment in the near future. Hotel situated in excellent position with exceptional views. Overall we would stay there again.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel and it was really lovely. Although the hotel is being refurbished our room was lovely with great views over the bay. The bed was huge and very comfortable and the room had everything to make for a relaxing and very peaceful stay.
Ideally located for touring Devon and Somerset.

Bill and his wife who are experienced guest house owners took over this rather dated hotel 8 weeks ago and have done a marvellous facelift on the bedrooms and communal areas. Beds are very comfortable and the blue and gold decorations are very majestic and modern whilst the oak furniture and sloping floors remind you that you are in a character property. The bathrooms are still to be done and although rather dated and floral are still fully functional - these are a winter project. Beware of rather hot scolding water! I understand why Bill has the water as hot (small water tank) but this could catch some elderly/young people out with nasty consequences. A simple warning notice near the sink would be useful.

Bill is always ready to help and the staff are very pleasant making this Boutique Hotel a pleasant place to stay. We stayed in the C S Lewis Suite which had a separate seating area as well as the bedroom which overlooked Lynmouth beach below. A most pleasant place to participate in a glass of wine after a long day out.

We had dinner in the hotel which was good english wholesome food. This is not a fancy gourmet experience, the main meal was a good portion which was cooked perfectly and quite filling. Starters were excellent but puddings desired something a little more tempting than school type puddings. The dining room has good views also and is light and airy giving a modern touch to this old hotel. Breakfast are excellent. But be prepared to preorder your dinner choices by 5pm each day and to eat between 6-7.30pm. We soon got used to doing this but sometimes I feel that 2 hours before eating you would not be hungry and miss out on a starter which later you may fancy.

There is adequate parking spaces for all guests and the exit is a rather long drive next to a sheer drop - I would not want to do this in icy weather! It looks like the car park and drive have recently been tarmacked so good on the shoes ladies.

If you want to eat out there are about 4 places in Lynton and lots in Lynmouth down below. The water Cliff railway is about 100m from the hotel and runs daily - check opening times as this ceased at 7pm when we were there. Lynton has lots of antiques places and a craft centre which has some wonderful gifts - don't miss this as it looks to be in an old chapel. There are 2 small supermarkets there also for any forgotten purchases.

So well done to Bill and his crew for a wonderful place to spend a few days by the sea whilst having a wonderful service. Bill just seems to appear when you need him. Thanks Alice (foreign intern student)

Room Tip: Front of the hotel has the best views. C S Lewis Suite was amazing.

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.

Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The Bay View is our premier room. We are fortunate that most rooms enjoy the same views, and indeed one can sit in bed and look at the wonderful view from most. We have also rolled out the same quality of beds and mattresses to all rooms, regardless of grade. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. regards Bill

We had a thoroughly enjoyable break at this very comfortable hotel, our room was extremely clean with fantastic views over the bay from three windows in our room. The English breakfast was extremely good as was the service from both the staff and the owner Bill. We would certainly visit again if we return to Lynton.

Both Lynton and Lynmouth which is at the bottom of the cliff are very pretty places to visit especially if you are looking for a relaxing break, plenty of lovely walks, great scenery, lovely old pubs and quirky and interesting individual shops to look around. We would certainly recommend a stay at the Lynton Cottage and Lynton and Lynmouth.
