The room was spotless and very pleasant . After a good nights sleep, breakfast was served in the dining room. It was all cooked perfectly. A lovely stay....

Alwyn and Heather couldn't have been more helpful. We arrived like a couple of drowned rats after walking six hours in non stop rain. Clothes and boots were whisked away to an airing cupboard ready for a dry start the next day. The room was spacious and nicely decorated with a nice view over Lynton and although it was a...

Hi Graham - it was lovely to read your kind review today. Although the weather was pretty bad the day you arrived, at least we were able to get you and your granddaughter dry again for the next leg of your journey. We hope you enjoyed the walking and would love to see you both again. Kind regards

We stayed two nights in this lovely B&B in Lynton. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The B&B location is quite close to the centre of the village, with a nice view over the surroundings. Breakfast is absolutely great. This place offers good value for money.

We had a wonderful visit to Devon, England staying at Rockvale. It was the perfect place from which to explore the area. Our room (#6) was so charming, spotlessly clean, and had an amazing view! We loved the tea, coffee and biscuits in the room. Anything we could have wanted was provided. We loved just having a cup of coffee...

The hotel is located up a drive way between Lynton town hall and the cinema (68 seats apparently) . The buildings are gorgeous Victorian creations with terracotta roof tiles. I had a lovely view of them from my second floor single room. It boasts a large bay window from which Lynton and Lynmouth can clearly be seen. I had a...

This was our second trip, and we enjoyed our stay just as much as our first. And we've already booked for next year. Heather and Alwyn are perfect hosts, and we felt like their guests, not customers. This is a good-quality bed-and-breakfast, which offers features not often found in others, such as evening meals, a bar and a guest lounge....
