“Good B&B in good location”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Centrally located B&B in the small town of Lynton. Just a short walk to local amenities, the SWCP and to the Cliff Railway. We had a spacious room on the 2nd floor with a double and a single bed. The furniture was plain but tasteful. The en-suite was rather small, but with a large shower; the washbasin was outside the en-suite in the room. The breakfast was freshly prepared and left nothing to be desired. We welcomed the option to get packed lunches as there are not much possibilities to stop for a bite to eat on the next section of the SWCP. Altogether a good B&B with pleasant hosts.

Located in the centre of Lynton, the hosts at Gable Lodge couldn't do enough for us. Breakfasts were excellent and even had home made marmalade and jams. After getting soaked through on a coastal walk, they couldn't do enough for us and also provided plenty of local info. Would recommend this B&B and also great value for money. Only slight downside, the en-suite could do with updating but was clean and functional.

We stayed at Gable Lodge for one night in room 3 - a family room. The B&B was lovely - clean, friendly and close to all the local amenities. The room had one double bed and one single with an en-suite and was a good size for 2 adults and one child. The owners were really welcoming and the breakfast (inclusive of room rates) was great. They even put out crayons and a colouring book to keep our Little one amused during brekkie, which was a lovely gesture. We were only there briefly for one night but would definitely want to return. Excellent quality accommodation at a very reasonable price. Will definitely recommend - am looking forward to returning!!

We spent two nights at Gable Lodge Guest House during our trip through UK. The House is located on the street with medium traffic. We were warmly welcomed at the beginning and received comfortable bedroom for two. Parking lot for four cars is located behind the house. Accommodation and traditional English breakfast were perfect. We felt almost like home. In walking distance there are many shops.

We booked this room at the last minute and got lucky. I can't imagine there is a better place to stay in Lynton, especially for the price. We were warmly welcomed with a pot of tea & biscuits and Dave took the time to sit with us chatting about the local area and giving us advice. The breakfast was everything that you'd expect with a decent range of choices and most of the food was local (the Devon smoked kippers were especially tasty). Throughout the stay everything that we need was looked after by Dave and Anne. For example, we mentioned going out for fish & chips and Anne was immediately on the phone for us to make sure that they would still be open.

We stayed in a great room at the top of the house that had stunning views and a small private balcony. There was a mini-fridge with fresh milk and a good selection of hot beverages available in the room. The bathroom was small but very clean and modern with a shower only. The water pressure might have not satisfied some, but my wife and I found that it was more than adequate. A small price to pay for being at the top with amazing views.

After walking around the town I'd say that this is one of the best kept guest houses. Also good to see a green-business award!

Room Tip: Room 1 is on the top floor and has stunning views from a private balcony, but if you're fussy ab...

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of June 2013 without booking ahead of time. We got lucky. The room was great, the breakfast was great and having a menu was a plus. Dave also offered to drop us off in Porlock so we could hike back because the bus didn't run until 11:00 AM. Great experience.
