Evening meals are a must, all freshly cooked by Alwyn who also makes her own jams, yogurts & bread. Badgers also visit at night & can be...

Dear Ann & Dave - thank you for your lovely review - we really enjoyed the few days you spent with us and are glad you had such a good time. Our badgers are continuing to entertain - 4 at the same time one night this week - and we hope they will still be visiting next time you come....

We had a lovely holiday in Lynton and Rockvale made it even more memorable. Very pleasant stay and good breakfast. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. It is conveniently located to visit all the places of interest. Would definitely go back again if we get a chance.

The hotel was clean, fresh and friendly. We stayed for dinner and the food was home cooked with generous portions. Nice touch in the bedroom was fresh milk for teas and coffees (not just cartons of UHT). Super breakfast - well organised hotel. A real gem.

We recently had the pleasure of staying for 3 nights at Rockvale, having previously stayed there on our honeymoon 40 years ago, and were thoroughly impressed. The whole place looks like it was decorated yesterday and is spotlessly clean. The room was well-appointed with everything we needed for our stay, the bed was very comfy and the view across the...

I stopped here late at night when I had been driving and came across the little gem that is Lynton. It was so precious I knew I make an impromptu stop and stay the night so I could enjoy the town the next day. The two ladies that run the place were more than accommodating at my late arrival. My...

We had a lovely overnight stay at this charming B&B. Well appointed room with toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities. The view was quite lovely too. Breakfast was superb. We both had vegetarian options, the veggie full English was great but I definitely won with my order of vegetarian eggs Benedict. You have to try the homemade lemon curd, I was...

Stayed for one night whilst I was on a 2 day motorcycle trip. Heather's welcome was very friendly and warm. My single room was very compact but totally acceptable with a private bathroom near to the room. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and the view from the window spectacular! I had booked a 3 course evening meal...

A stay at Rockvale B & B, operated by Alwyn and Heather, is a delightful experience. The reception is warm; the facilities more than adequate; and the location central to the town.

We had a pleasant stay at this hotel but strict rules and times are insisted on for breakfast etc. the room was clean tidy and comfy and if you can handle the list of rules then we could recommend it. The location of this hotel is within walking distance to the heart of town.

Hi Bruce - thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are sorry you feel there are a lot of rules about breakfast, we only ask that you order the night before so that we can make sure no one has to wait too long to get their food. Breakfast time 8.30-9.15 means you have to arrive...
