We are pleased that you enjoyed both Clovelly and The Red Lion Hotel, room 4 has a particularly lovely view out to sea with the seating area, we generally have all rooms redecorated during February & March when we are in our quieter season.Hopefully we will see you again soon.

We booked here on a "pin in the map" basis for a three night Christmas Package with 2 friends so we were very concerned as we drove there bearing in mind we had made the choice and the booking for our friends. It is a very magical place even on arrival with the steep drive down to the Hotel which...

We stayed overnight having attended the Herring Festival. The room was small but it had everything we needed and more - the bathroom was relatively new and had a good shower and plenty of shelf space for wash bags etc (something a lot of 5 Star places don't have). The bar offered great real ale and was cozy - well...

My wife wanted to stay here on the way home from our Cornwall half-term trip. Directions to the hotel are poor, no signage that I spotted. So instead of turning into the visitors centre continue straight up where it says dead end and take the first left down the steep hill to the hotel. Care the car-parking area gets busy...

Spent the weekend here as part of my mate's 60th celebrations. Staff were excellent, friendly and contributed to the success of the weekend. Food was excellent. Only minor comment is that, in common with the rest of southern England, they don't know how to correctly a pull a pint (lack of sparkler for the pump) but I'll forgive them that...

5 Days of total relaxation and joy. Didn't take the car, taxi from Dunstable. Walked every day up through the village. [Half mile of steepish steps but a pleasure so long as you take your time.] Stunning cliff walks. Autumn colours, wild life etc. Peaceful. Occasional shooting, but hey this is the countryside. Room spacious and views over harbour. Food...
