Dear Lucille, yes we do strive to be a comfortable, clean, fresh and friendly Guest House where one can feel "at home". We are so pleased that you enjoyed everything. There is quite a good choice for breakfast so it does not have to be a Full English. We have some guests that especially enjoy our omelettes and others scrambled eggs. The bacon and sausages are particularly good local produce. We hope to see you again sometime. Regards Nikki & Ian

I am going through a terrible time personally and the staff could not have been more accommodating and kind.
The hotel was clean and homely, I could not have asked for a better place.
The landlord/landlady were so kind and friendly, they made our trip so lovely.

I cannot fault the establishment one bit. The owners are warm and welcoming, the venue is very clean and tidy, and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, in a hotel. Conveniently situated close to the town centre makes it the ideal base. Would highly recommend it and would most certainly return in the future.

Dear Andy, yes being so close to Dawlish town centre does make Lyme Bay House very convenient for exploring the local amenities but also with the trains and buses being so close by the rest of South Devon as well. You were great company in the lounge Bar in the evening. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hope to see you again sometime. Regards Nikki & Ian

Each time I make a trip down to the South West either for business or pleasure, I will always make a line for Lyme Bay House Hotel, that's if they have a room free, it's just so popular! The great thing about Lyme Bay House has always been the welcome, be it either Nikki or Ian, you are always made to feel right at home. After a long journey down from Warwickshire, the easy check-in and help being shown to my room was appreciated. I've stayed a fair few times now and I can easily say that whichever room you're given, it'll be well decorated, furnished and very clean! The beds are very comfortable and the facilities with wide screen tv's in the rooms welcome. I only managed to stay one night due to commitments elsewhere but I will be back soon, as it is the only place I can currently recommend in Dawlish. Thanks for making such a short stay so good Nikki and Ian, see you soon.

Loved every minute of my stay in this charming and very nice b&b. You can't ask for anywhere better its 5 star the bedroom is lovely and very clean and fab shower. Such lovely owners made me very welcoming and very helpful I came down from Scotland so it was a long journey so decided to stay and extra night which was not a problem for my hosts I could've stayed there longer if I could. If you're ever going to Dawlish you must go here you won't regret it. Thanks again guys
