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. Our room was beautifully furnished, clean and warm and everything that we needed was there. They were helpful giving us advice on the area...

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. The breakfast each morning was excellent. Sally and Paul were very friendly hosts, and made us feel relaxed. The situation is...

A lovely couple of nights get away. Just what we needed. Sally and Paul were great hosts and we couldn't fault the breakfasts. Both the full English and the smoked salmon I had were fabulous. Home-made bread too. We took our little dog and she enjoyed herself as well. Plenty of places within walking distance to eat dinner and great...

Had a lovely stay with our dog Powser. Our hosts Sally & Paul were so helpful & welcoming. Outstanding breakfast, cleanliness, location. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful home. There was no issue with using garage for parking - you just need to talk to fellow guests, of which we enjoyed their company. Do try the salmon &/or...

We have just returned from an 8 night stay at this lovely Hotel.

We've just had a wonderful week's stay here. Lovely people, lovely food, lovely views; a very comfortable, relaxing hotel. The breakfast set us up for the day ready for the many local walks from the hotel door. For lunch (if you can manage it) and dinner a variety of local hostelries all within a comfortable walking distance. Loved the emergency...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Sally & Paul were very welcoming and the location is excellent with its own parking which is a bonus. The honesty bar was also an excellent idea, and the terrace is also lovely and has excellent views towards the sea. We had booked a double room, which to be honest would have been better...
