We stayed in the 2 bed self catering apartment at the top of the Hotel. Couldnt fault it. Excellent facilities, loads of space, massive bathroom and very cosy. Crisp cotton sheets and huge bath towels! Fantastic views across the fields beyond and lovely to walk down to Woody Bay Station and watch the steam train. The owners were lovely and... More

Had a wonderful break here again. Lovely hotel with the best owners. Lovely family feel, so welcoming. Very comfortable, clean and the breakfast is wonderful. Not the first time we have been there and certainly won't be the last. Highly recommended.

This railway hotel, next to Woody Bay Station on the narrow gauge L&B railway, has returned to its Victorian roots somewhat now that the railway is being restored, though it never lost its old world charm during the intervening decades. Quite enticingly, the garden gate opens straight onto the station platform. Having changed hands about 18 months ago, the hotel... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the self catering apartment which was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Location is great for visiting local beaches and places of interest, and the owners were charming. Don't miss Woolacombe beach or the candle maker in Lynton. For a lovely meal the Station Hotel about 4 miles away is good value for money

We only stayed here for two nights, but wished it could have been more. The owners Mark and Desi were fantastic, so friendly and helpful, going above and beyond to make our stay a relaxing comfortable one. The two bedroomed apartment was lovely, clean and very comfortable and the cooked breakfast was delicious! The surrounding countryside is just breathtaking and... More

We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment on a bed and breakfast basis. Apartment was really clean and comfortable with good sized lounge and more than adequate kitchenette. Breakfast as good as any we've had. The couple running it couldn't be more accommodating.

When we arrived we felt welcome immediately - we were shown to our private unit which had its own lounge area - a huge bonus for us. We enjoyed a great stay and a top quality breakfast in the morning. Couldn't do enough for us - many thanks for a great stay.

Stayed for 4 nights in wonderfully equipped self catering apartment. Good location for hiking and general sight seeing. Excellent hosts and reasonable price. The apartment was clean and obviously well cared for. Good wifi reception in hotel lounge, despite remote location. One could not have asked for more. Look forward to paying another visit to this gem of a place.
