Our room was spotless, comfortable and quiet with a lovely view over Lynton. There is a good breakfast menu and a delicious choice of home cooked...

We received a very warm welcome our arrival at Rockvale. The accommodation was excellent, very comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean with a very homely lounge and bar. There was an extensive menu for breakfast and the option of a varied evening meal. All the food was beautifully cooked and presented and locally sourced. Alwyn and Heather were very helpful, friendly...

Thank you Alwen and Heather for providing the perfect place to finish our walk from the south coast. Lovely to find that our hosts were from very close to home but I am sure that the welcome would have been just as warm without that factor. I was in room 7 which may be small but, wow, what a view!...

I booked this extremely last minute (ie midlnight before driving down the next day) and chose on the reviews alone. They were all spot-on. The positives: - Lovely, spacious room which was nice, spotlessly clean and well decorated. - I'd chosen Room 2 which had french doors opening out on to a small balcony - this was lovely - Amazing...

Everyone talks about this lovely B&B, it's views, and gracious hosts, and it's all true! But I want to talk about it's delicious dinners. The ever changing nightly menu reflects locally produced/procured items, and is prepared wonderfully! One has a choice of a two, or three course fixed price meal at extremely reasonable prices. Having traveled the UK for over...

Quite by chance we found this delightful B&B on-line and were thrilled when we arrived. We had stunning views from our spacious light-filled attic room overlooking picturesque Lynton and cliffs going down to the ocean. Heather & Alwyn are a friendly efficient team providing superb breakfasts with fresh local ingredients including home made yoghurt and their own freshly laid eggs,...

We stayed in Rockvale for one night and had a family room. It was very nicely decorated in a seaside theme which my daughter loved. We also had a great view of the town from our room. We had a warm greeting and were looked after very well during our stay. There was a great selection for breakfast and both...

The location is perfect for being in the center of Lynton and very close to the Cliff Railway. The level parking is atop of a steep driveway, the B&B offers great views from most of the rooms as well as a nice front patio area with outdoor furniture to take in the beautiful surrounding hills. The breakfast is as good...
