If there were any reason for us to return to Lyme Regis I would not be writing this review because I would not risk others booking this wondeful cottage when we wanted to return. The problem is not with the cottage but the lack of things to do in Lyme. The self catering part of this old pub is the... More

My parents and I stayed at The London a few weeks ago and had a fantastic time. We stayed in the self catering cottage which was just brilliant! The cottage had lots of space and was really well equipped with a lovely terrace at the front with views right over the sea - a great place to sit with a... More

My husband and I stayed in the Garden Room, the facilities were extremely good and we couldn't possibly have been made to feel more welcome. Breakfast was a feast and was served in a private breakfast room just to the side of the bedroom. You are given a choice of eggs and a preferred time to eat along with cereals,... More

We did not stay here and will not out of principal so the accommodation may be very nice. Just a warning to all to get them to be CRYSTAL CLEAR as to if they want any deposit, how much and by when. After being told no deposit was needed and then a later email changing minds asking for a £50... More

My friends and I stayed at the London Guesthouse when we went to a wedding at River Cottage. The owners Nick and Sarah made us feel most welcome and looked after us incredibly well. The Guesthouse was very homely and the view from the garden was beautiful. Thank you for a lovely stay!

I don't think I have ever experienced anything quite like the London Inn. I hardly know how to sum up the delights of our short stay here.

“Just call and talk to Nick or Sarah and let them help you choose the best room, if you are a family of 4 ask for room no 9.”

“I think we hade the most quiet room in the annex. But there you are not able to use the wifi because it's too far away from the main building. If you want to use it, just go to the main building where there are three chairs and a table in the hall outside the other bedrooms. I think the other rooms have more noise from each other (so it seemed when we sat outside). But I guess those rooms have more "atmosphere from hundreds of years ago" since the main building is hundreds of years old.”
