As a family of six we can find it hard to find accommodation that suits our requirements ( 2 adults and 4 crazy kids!) we felt extremely welcome on arrival, we arrived early to the check in time but this was not a problem :-). We were shown to the room straight away. The room we stayed in was spacious,... More

All evening food in Lyme was expensive - its like they have you trapped there so you can pay a high price. Couldnt help feeling let down though! The fish pie was pleasant, salad seemed like a token gesture and I was still hungry when id finished. Meal was around £17 - fish pie and a large glass of red.... More

Unhygienic and unorganised. We didn't even stay the night we demanded a refund it was so terrible, live wires hanging, dirty towels left, awful smells. ' we didn't have time to decorate' was the excuse given for being so poorly looked after. So many health and safety hazards about.

My wife, my youngest son (5) and I stayed here for a week during a fossil hunting trip to the Jurassic Coast. Aija and Ian were awesome! Parking was easy either in the small lot or on the street. It was comfortable walking distance to the sea front in down town and Brewers Quay. If you don't want to walk... More
