I stayed at Lorna Doone House for a week with my elderly parents. From my first contact, Neil & Sharon were so helpful and friendly - this continued throughout our stay. We were welcomed with tea and coffee in the lounge when we arrived, and were greeted each morning and evening with a smile and kind words. Nothing was too...

We spent two nights at Lorna Doone House and loved it. The house has a perfect location right beside the river in Lynmouth. Our room was clean and comfortable with lovely river views. The welcome was so friendly with lots of helpful advice about the locality. We (like many visitors) were walking so appreciated the hearty breakfast on offer as...

After being away for 5 years we returned to the Lorna Doone House again and within minutes it was as if we had never been away. We had a fantastic time with all our needs being catered for. Neil and Sharon are such fantastic hosts and great fun to spend time with.

Clean, tidy, friendly & good value for money. Lovely double room overlooking the river. Excellent breakfast. Got told to move out of our window seat when having breakfast to allow another couple to sit there despite them arriving for breakfast five minutes after us - found this a rather surreal experience which we now laugh about but at the time...

This was our third stay and was fantastic as expected; just as clean, comfortable, friendly and homely as before. We stayed in the lovely four poster room with river view. The food was great and my gluten free diet was catered for so well with lots of choice. There are great walks from the doorstep and Lynmouth town just a...

Just home after a week in this lovely, friendly place. Sharon and Neil could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Breakfasts and dinners were fabulous, plenty of choice, and requests catered for. Sure we've put on a couple of stones! Bedroom and en suite were spacious and comfortable. Great views from our window. Surrounding area beautiful, but...

Couldn't of wanted a better place to stay to recharge the old batteries. Slept like a log with the lovely sound of the river in the background. Place was spotless. Breakfast superb and made most welcome. Will be returning some day 😎

Once again this was the perfect place to stay for a wonderful walking holiday. The hotel was welcoming as usual with superb food and drinks. I celebrated my birthday in high style with bubbly champagne and excellent company. The area was glorious and filled with wildlife -birds, butterflies. The river was beautifully clear and the sea views were stunning. All...

My wife and I spent one night here to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. Our room was spacious, clean, and enjoyed a great view over the East Lyn river. Being able to park alongside the guest house rather than in Tors Road was a bonus. The evening meal was one of the nicest we have enjoyed in a long time,...
