Green Rooms B&B
Ranked #6 of 21 Croyde B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We stayed here for one night at the end of a walking trip on the South West Coast Path. Lyn and Phil made us both really welcome. We had the loft conversion room and as other reviewers have said you have to mind your head when getting in and out of bed. The poor quality of the mattress also lets the Green Rooms down. The bathroom is just great with a lovely shower. And then there was breakfast. As well as a conventional menu Lyn and Phil also offer a daily special and we were lucky enough to be there when it was pancakes with fresh strawberries and maple syrup - if only we could have eaten more! There was also a wonderful selection of home-made preserves to go on the home made bread. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Croyde.

Thank you for your review - it's great when guests spend the time giving some feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed our breakfast which we really take great pride in. We were aware that the mattress in the room had become a little worn and in fact a new one was delivered yesterday. Apologies that we did not get it sorted in time for your stay. We hope to be able to welcome you back to Green Rooms again soon.

Lyn & Phil run a perfect business. If I were ever to run a B&B, I'd model it on theirs.

We had such a super friendly, laid-back weekend here - like walking in to your best mates house. Comfortable rooms and amazing breakfast. The location is great - 5 min to the centre of Croyde, 5 min to the beach.

Room (upstairs) - warm & cozy, loads of space, immaculately clean, gorgeous bathroom, fantastic shower.
Breakfast - home-made granola and jams, fresh bread, fruit and every day a special to tempt you away from the traditional fare also on offer. Chorizo hash set me up beautifully for the first day - I loved it. Pancakes tipped me over the edge into breakfast heaven on day two.

I booked another trip here as soon as I got home!!

Just the best B&B I have ever seen. The rooms are fantastic in size with great décor! This home is owned and operated by Lyn and Phil who are welcoming and provide a beautifully slick B&B.

I felt immediately welcome and slept well on all three evenings! The breakfasts are literally to die for! Seriously, take the special Chorizo hash! If you can get past the home grown jams and granola, again, both absolutely delectable!

Don't look anywhere else they have it SO very right!

Thanks Phil and Lyn. We'll see you next year!

What a wonderful stay! We've just arrived home after a 3 night stay at the Green Rooms. We stayed in room 2 which had a lovely beachside theme (a few ideas I've stored up for when I want to redecorate at home!) there was a lovely ensuite with a brilliant shower too. Bed was much comfier than the caravans we usually stay in when in Croyde so felt very luxurious!

Breakfasts were INCREDIBLE! Some supreme bread cutting from Phil and wonderful home made jams by Lyn made breakfast extra special. Great to have the specials on offer too, it's lovely to have another option to just a cooked breakfast, even though this was exquisite each morning too!

The location as others have mentioned is perfectly placed between Croyde village and Croyde beach/ruda where friends of ours were staying. We were also trusted with a key so that we could come and go as we pleased.

Phil and Lyn (and rocky!) were excellent hosts. I couldn't fault it. It really is a home away from home.

We stayed a couple of nights on a short surfing trip in the Green Room with a 10 year old and 12 year old. The rooms were decorated in a contemporary style and spotlessly clean and new, and Lyn and Phil and Rocky the dog were very welcoming. They gave us great advice on the best local surf schools, and offered a breakfast special of pancakes and strawberries with maple syrup, and other banana crumpet delicacies. The best part of all were the large array of Lyn''s delicious jams - from blackberry to rhubarb and ginger - all home-made. We came and went as we liked because we were trusted with a key, and the location meant we could walk into the centre of Croyde and to the beach and surf school as well. All in all we would definitely book again.

Room Tip: The attic room is a bit of a head banger and the sound of the sea from all the rooms.

Have been travelling to Croyde for many years and have to say that Green Rooms is by far the best B&B I have stayed in. Phil and Lyn are great, providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The large loft room is immaculate with loads of space and storage. A very impressive bathroom with a fabulous shower. The view from the room gives a great Croyde Sunset and its an easy walk to the beach and the pub! Wetsuits and surf boards can be cleaned and stored at the end of each day. Cannot recommend enough. I would suggest you book early before all the rooms are snapped up and you miss out on this fantastic home from home!

We booked The Green Rooms quite by chance as we were attending a wedding in Georgeham. The Green Rooms it's situated within a short distance of the village and the beach at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. We booked all 3 of the rooms.What a lovely choice we made. Lyn and Phil are the perfect hosts and were there to give advice about a whole variety of things to do in and around Croyde. The rooms are beautiful - we were in room 1 which is a spacious three bed room upstairs in a lift conversion. It is high spec with lovely shower and bathroom, light and airy space, two chairs and a big tv.The other rooms were equally lovely too with individually styled decor.
The breakfasts here are to die for. The full English is a sumptuous affair. However the specials make this a cut above the rest. While we were offered pancakes with maple syrup and fresh blueberries and a quite stunning chorizo hash with egg and home grown rocket (thanks for braving the rain to pick that Phil!) served with sweet chilli sauce. Copious amount of tea and coffee, toast, juice, home made granola (delicious) and a range of home made preserves. It has to be the best breakfast in Croyde!
Sally we weren't blessed with the best weather -sunny for the wedding but poured down ever since - but our stay here has been lovely and I would whole heartedly recommend a stay here.
