East Lyn House is situated in an ideal location in Lynmouth. A short walk to restaurants, the coast path and many other footpaths, as well as the centre of this pretty village and the funicular railway to Lynton. Richard and Helena are superb hosts and, although they are very new owners of the hotel, their attention to detail and the...

Having booked some months in advance we arrived to a lovely friendly welcome if somewhat surprised to find new proprietors Helena and Richard in situ. We needn't have worried because they could not have made our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. There was a very good choice for breakfast, including a wide selection of fruit and the cooked options were...

Hi Rita, thanks for your lovely review. Sorry it has taken us so long to respond to it. It was so lovely to have you both to stay and we couldn't have asked for nicer guests in our new home.

I first visited this B & B in the 1990s and again in 2002. It was so nice then that I brought friends with us on our most recent visit, April 2017. My lasting impression of our first two visits was the smell of furniture polish. The place was spotlessly clean and decorated to a very high standard. The breakfast...

Thank you for your review of East Lyn House and for your positive comments about my wife and I. I'm sorry that you felt disappointed by certain aspects of your stay. As you know, we had only taken over ownership of our home one week before your visit and so had very limited time to make any improvements that we...

The house has an ideal location with the river on one side, Lynton on the door step and the trail to Watersmeet passing nearby. Lovely location, quiet and scenic. The new owners were really friendly and helpful, welcoming and polite and our room was very comfortable, well presented and clean. Free bottled water was provided every day and a small...

Hi Fabio, thanks for taking the time to add your review and thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure to have you both to stay with us. I'm sorry that the wifi was a bit difficult. As you say, we are trying to get better access for our guests and this should be set up within the...

Just returned from a 5 night break at East Lyn. The new owners Helena, Richard, Geoff and Jenny had only moved in the day before we arrived, but the welcome and quality of service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Very good choice at breakfast including an excellent full English, just the job before a days walking. The...

We stayed at the East Lyn for 2 nights on the same day that Helena, Richard, Geoff and Jenny took over as the new owners. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived.

Stayed four nights over Easter. Excellent location and breakfasts as mentioned in other reviews. Not so good points; cold room (central heating only came on once for few hours one morning during our stay) , virtually impossible to dry towels ( not changed and no warm radiator/ rail) and no extractor in windowless shower room so quite a bit of...

Thank you for adding your review for your stay over the Easter weekend. I'm not sure why you titled the review "new owners," since we did not take over until after your stay and so your review is not about us. However, I'm sorry that there were some problems during your stay under the old owners. I can only apologise...

Just spent 3 nights in room 1 (albeit I am sure I asked for room 6 when I booked initially). It was very cosy and warm which was needed as the weather was very cold with hail and rain.
