10/10 Exceptional

The property was unusual and unique. Loved the location. The room just suited us nicely. The staff were absolutely fabulous, helpfull, full of humour and couldnt be faulted. Food was delicious and the even accommodated the fussy eaters in the group. Highly recommended. Local beer to be tasted!!!

4/10 Fair

The family room in the attic is difficult to access due to very steep stairs and the bed absolutely needs to be replaced. The food was good and the breakfast was OK. We were treated well, with a positive attitude from the staff. If you arrive in a bigger car like an SUV, parking could be a challenge due to a very narrow entrance.

Over the hill at 40!!
Made to feel very welcome from start to end! Dual aspect room which was clean and comfortable with ample storage and a fantastic shower room! Views of the river and the valley. Breakfast was plentiful and really set you up for the day, the sausages were meaty and very tasty! Easy access to Lynton on foot via Lynway (a flat walk with a steep incline/decline either end!!). Great area in general for walks, definitely for hill lovers!! Try the restaurant, the Thai food was fantastic. Our favourites included the prawn dippers and Thai fish cakes! The Fat Belly beers are moreish ... beware lol! Tip: If you're staying a few days consider the week pass for the Cliff Railway.

A Brilliant Weekend
There were 3 main reasons for choosing, The Cottage for our short break on my wife's Birthday, firstly location it's near the Lynton Cliff Railway, secondly the onsite Thai restaurant, thirdly, they brew their own beer. Akk in all it was a brilliant weekend.

Great place to stay.
Enjoyed our stay,made to feel welcome. Room large & airy and had everything we required. Wi-Fi erratic but for one night was OK. Breakfast was very good. Only comment stairs a bit steep and quirky to our particular room some would have difficulty.Would stay again.

Great place to stay when in the area
The Cottage Inn is a fantastic place to stay when visiting the North Devon area. We discovered it a little over two years ago and always promised to return. The accommodation is what you’d expect from an Inn - it doesn’t try to be anything that it’s not. It’s good, very clean functional accommodation in a wonderful location. The food is something else though - the Thai kitchen produces dishes that for me are the best that I’ve tasted anywhere in the country. I can’t say they’re authentic as I’ve never been to Thailand but if I ever get to go I hope that the food reminds me of The Cottage Inn. The Cottage Inn has it’s own brewery under the name of Fatbelly ales and they are also amazing and if you needed another one, a perfect reason to stay! Best Thai food in the country.....

Beautifully placed Inn.
We were made to feel very welcome. The Thai food was lovely. The hotel itself is slightly showing its age but the bed was comfortable.

Great good and people but needs some sprucing up
Great location, easy walk down to Lynmouth or along to Lynton. good check in, very welcoming, good beer if a little pricey. Great Thai restaurant on site, really good food. Good breakfast. Room could do with a spruce up and quite a few cobwebs. Bath was a tad grubby though. Quiet rooms, bed ok, WiFi good. Fantastic price, nice staff and owners. Car park good though a little narrow, take care when driving out - saw a convex mirror under the pub, if it was put up it would be a big help to lone travellers when exiting. Overall decent place.
