“Cleanest place I have ever stayed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

This guesthouse is immaculately maintained and is run with clear systems to ensure efficient and consistent service. Our hosts were very accommodating and we found their local recommendations very reliable. I believed that the decor was designed to be traditional and there were many quality touches in our room. This is good place for a quiet stay with excellent views.

We spent one night at this hotel on the way own to Cornwall and enjoyed our stay. The welcome was warm and the room was good (Room 10) with great views. The hotel is central so we had easy access to bars, restaurants and the cliff railway (which we could see from our window). Breakfast was good. Only one small issue - tha car park is quite small. However, I would recommend it.

Well we did a one night stay on the way to Cornwall. We were wanting just a bed for the night, and had read a few negative reviews but our stay was very enjoyable. The room was spotless, the bed comfy, the room spacious and the view was amazing out of the window. Service was helpfull and breakfast quick and very pleasent with the veranda open looking down over the sea. The room we had had an additional bunk bed so good for a family weekend (room 10)
Location wise it was a 5 minute walk to Lynton with its shop and restaurants, very convenient, and even short walk to the cliff railway to go down to the lower town.
The only things I would say is that there is no lift, so if you have trouble carrying suitcases the top floor might not be best choice, and the car parking was a bit crammed.

I think one's enjoyment of this hotel will depend up on how much you value your room view and if you get a room that capitalises on the amazing view that is available.
Fortunately we had a corner room on the 2nd floor that had two windows that overlooked the bay and the coast line below.
And it is a fantastic view and one that makes this hotel very nicely situated within Lynton.

The hotel itself has an aged feeling and therefore one should not expect brand new decor, but if you go with this knowledge and just accept the hotel for its location and views then it makes it value for money.

The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is up to scratch with the usual choice of 'full english' or cereal, fruit and toast.

The hotel is also situated on one of the coastal paths which if you walk westwards you end up in the valley of the rocks which on a clear day is a spectacle.
Or if you end up down near the shore there is a funicular tram that can bring you back up the cliff and stops just above the location of the hotel. We found it very handy after a long day walking around.

Just returned from a week at the North Cliff Hotel in its amazing position.
This hotel has many positives that are so different from the standard modern box hotel - we found the room and bed comfortable with many advantages like the individually controlled heating, the hangers in the wardrobe, the mugs for tea/coffee/biscuits, the window in the bathroom [no noisy fan], the cleanliness, the quality of the food [especially the fresh fruit salad at breakfast], the friendly helpful welcoming staff and the homely feel.
Good value for money and we will return.

Myself and my partner enjoyed a relaxing, peaceful one night stay in a lovely airy room with an amazing view over Lynmouth.
Slightly dated but nevertheless the hotel was clean, the staff were polite, friendly and helpful.
The cliff railway is a must!
Would definitely recommend to friends and family if visiting the area.

In summary the hotel is in a good location with nice views and has friendly staff. However we noted the following:

1) Towels were washed but did not smell clean
2) We left a towel on the floor and it was put back on the towel rack (yuck!!)
3) The shower head was two modes, splatter or weak drizzle (it needs replacing)
4) The hotel uses a saniflow system so we got woken up at 4am with upstairs or next door flushing the toilet and the saniflow kicking in making an absolute racket!
5) The bed was not straightend out after the first night

On the plus side the breakfast was good but won't stay here again.
