The view from the hotel is just unbeatable even when it's raining. The food was delicious and the breakfasts were the best. I do feel the evening menu... More

The views over Lynmouth and Countisbury from this hotel are stunning. Our room had been refurbished to a high standard with large four poster bed, large bathroom and 2 comfortable lounge chairs with views looking over the sea. Breakfast and evening meal in the restaurant overlooking the sea both good. More variety on vegetables would help - we had the... More

Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Apologies for any noise transference from the room below. This is most unusual in our establishment, due to thickness of walls and particularly large rooms.

We booked this little retreat very last minute and it turned out to be an absolute gem. Bill and his team kindly offered us the opportunity to look at the different rooms before deciding which one we'd like which was a very nice touch.

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed our Louisa Suite and had a comfortable stay.
