This is simply the best hotel we've stayed at...

Lovely hotel, clinging to the cliff, above the Bristol channel. The hosts gave a warm welcome, the rooms were clean, warm, modern and comfortable. Just a few hundred meters via a small back path to the local village, Lynton, or to the local cliff rail down to the other local village, Lynmouth which rests on the coast in the valley. Both local villages are quaint and have all necessary amenities. You can also choose to go down a few steps to the coastal path which leads to magnificent walks along the coast, some really spectacular views.
The hotel itself serves a very tasty cooked breakfast and you can choose whether to eat dinner there as well, which is also remarkably good, or the hosts may recommend some of the local restaurants or pubs, one in particular down in Lynmouth, the Rising Sun, served some delicious food and good local Ales.
All round, the hotel had everything we needed, including a newly installed Sauna you can use to relax in after a day's walk, or a small reception bar area which seemed to bring the other residents together like something out of an Agatha Christie novel... make sure you sit in there and listen to the rail bell's toll...... we didn't hear any screams, you should be safe!
