We were asked to sit in the landing area just outside the restaurant because we had a dog with us. Fair enough, but because of this and even though we ordered from the same menu as the resteraunt we were not offered the freebie and most bizarrely were not allowed bread rolls even though we were staying in the hotel...

We stayed one night here and I was disappointed with our room. I know that this is an old property but the room was rather cramped and the sea view was only available by sticking your head right into the very small window.

One night stay on the way home from Cornwall. So glad we stayed here. Beautiful old building on the harbour, thatched roof, quirky stairs and passageways and lots of character. The room with sea view was spacious, modern with a fabulous bath room. Enjoyed the guest sitting room and everything about the rising sun. No problems getting a parking space...

Stopped in here after a long trek around. Had been told it was dog friendly but found it anything but. Had our little dog on our lap sipping water from our own water bottle and was told he wasn't allowed on the furniture. When the bar staff realised he was on my lap - was told he was up too...

This was the first time my wife and I have visited Lynmouth and we absolutely loved this quirky, traditional hotel. The rooms are contemporary and very well appointed. The beds are top of the range and extremely comfortable. Even the TVs are great. It's obvious a lot of time, care and expense has gone into the room refurbishments and it's...
