4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Fantastic view of the coast from the rooms
The hotel has recently (2 or 3 weeks ago) been taken over by a new owner and they're still in the process of redecorating throughout. When we arrived some areas were still being painted. Some rooms have been done, as has the bar area and restaurant. Our room had been given new furniture but retained the same carpet, bathroom etc. It was very clean (perhaps they re-grouted etc) but very dated. A section of carpet was missing under the wardrobe, but this didn't detract from the excellent service or the experience in general. I visited the hotel 10 years ago and wasn't disappointed with my second visit - Lynton itself is a relatively quiet place with a view shops, cafes and restaurants. I would stay here again - hopefully it won't be another 10 years until I do.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Amazing sea views
I specifically wanted sea views and this hotel certainly delivers. The location is also very convenient for getting out onto the SW Coast Path or down to Lynmouth on foot or via the cliff railway. My room was a little cramped, however, the bed was very comfortable and the shower worked well.

5/5 Excellent

3/5 Okay

Schöne Lage, befriedigendes Hotel
Sehr schöne Lage. Das Hotel hat seine besten Zeiten hinter sich. Es bedürfte einer Renovierung. Die Aussicht aus unserem Zimmer war außergewöhnlich schön.
