My wife and I brought our daughter and son-in-law from Texas for a short stay 2 nights ago, just before the season proper starts. Russ and Kerinda couldn't have been more welcoming. Wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, vast local knowledge available if you ask for it, thoroughly comfortable surroundings and beds, superb cooking and amazingly good value. For a hotel of this calibre I was expecting the price of a bottle of wine to be twice what we were asked to pay. Kerinda's dinner menu is carefully chosen and her cooking is first-class, and again excellent value. Did I mention the direct access to the funicular railway from the back garden? Or the proximity to the cliff walk through the Valley of the Rocks?
The weather was too cold for us to use the terrace to watch the sunset over a drink or three, but the lounge was very comfortable for whiling away the time and had the view. Although we know Lynton and Lynmouth well we're already checking our diaries to see when we can fit in another visit to this hotel just to enjoy the ambience and hospitality. Preferably at a warmer time so we can avail ourselves of that terrace for the sunset....More
