We stayed one night during a spell of excellent UK weather in late July. We made a late booking the night before. Making the booking was very straightforward and email confirmation was sent immediately together with a evening menu to choose our meal for the following night.
On arrival the hotel was quite tricky to find being tucked up a very narrow and steep road in Lynton. Google maps places the pin incorrectly so don't rely on folllowing the blue dot on your iPhone if that's what you normally use.
The building is full of character. Lovely large social areas, high ceilings etc. We were given a very friendly welcome by Debbie and the system for the 'open' bar explained. This was a great start.
Our double room had outstanding views and was nice and large. Everything seemed very clean and well looked after. One little negative was the shower. I like a good strong shower with lots of space but this was quite weak and the cubicle a bit small. This is the only criticism though as overall the room was excellent.
We has asked for an evening meal. This was very convenient for our stay as we didn't want to have to go out. The food was ok, the main in particular was tasty with a good piece of sirloin steak being prepared well. We felt really well looked after by Debbie.
The lounge was very cosy to relax in after the meal and there were a selection of board games to choose from.
We had a really good nights sleep. Quiet room and a comfy bed.
Breakfast was well cooked and enjoyable too.
Overall - we thought the hotel was excellent and superb value for money. Can't wait to return next time the sun returns to the UK!
