I cannot speak highly enough of the Lynton Cottage hotel. Our room was beautifully furnished and immaculately clean and the view... wow! we could happily wake up to that every morning. Breakfast was superb and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. If you're staying in Lynton, stay here. We certainly will be again :)

A great hotel, very quiet, and spotlessly clean. The staff were polite and friendly. Wonderful views over the Bristol Channel. Great place for a short break, close enough to the centre of Lynton so could walk in the evening for a meal, so had plenty of choice of places to eat, or stay in and have a pefectly good meal...

I think that the hotel has an ongoing schedule of up grading. We stayed in the C.S.Lewis Suite which was very comfortable with superb views over Lynmouth and out to sea. The staff were very efficient and friendly. The dining room is comfortably furnished, again with wonderful views. Our chosen meals were always well cooked and presented. My complaint would...

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The times for Dinner are restricted, due to the smaller numbers of people being served.

This was our second visit to the Lynton Cottage hotel, we first stayed in May 2014. The improvement program is ongoing but this does not detract in any way. Guest comfort is of paramount importance here. The location is wonderful with fantastic sea views, but it is the effort put in by management and staff that make it so special....

My husband and I chose this hotel based on previous reviews. It is a very quirky hotel with the most staggering views! The beds were fabulously comfortable ensuring us tired City folk were able to have at least 10 hours sleep a night! As it is a very old building, the floorboards can be a bit creaky but I think...
