Love lynmouth and this is a nice place to stay, we had one of the smaller rooms which was really too small to be considered a double but the balcony and view is superb. Bathroom was small which was ok but the shower really wasn't up to it or warm enough. Good breakfast but unfortunately the cooking smells spread right...

The room was clean and comfortable with a great little balcony to take in the view and people watch. We were called by one of the staff before we arrived and he (a helpful young guy) offered to get our bags from the car in the rain. The owner was also very friendly and we wished we had stayed another...

we stayed 2 nights at this lovely b&b this weekend. Fantastic location for exploring and wonderful view of the harbour. Room was clean, staff friendly and breakfast was great. We had a room with a balcony and so worth it to wake up to the view we had every morning. Would thoroughly recommend and hope to return next time we...

Just returned from a mid week break. This place is brilliant, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is great. Can't recommend this place enough, though we were tempted to keep it a secret! Highly recommended.

We are currently staying at Riverside Cottage and are delighted with our choice. The location is perfect, right on the waterfront, the rooms are clean and the beds comfy and the breakfast was delicious. The owner is very welcoming but what really makes this place special is the balcony overlooking the sea. It is excellent value for money and we...

A balcony room with a view, perfect for a coffee in the morning sun. A wonderful stay in stunning surroundings. Very friendly and welcoming owners. If you like good food and a good walk no matter what the weather, then you can't go wrong here. The area is popular with dog owners, but their dogs are so well behaved you...

This place was absolutely spot on. We were warmly welcomed after a long day's walking and whisked up to our faultless room: clean, comfortable and with a good bathroom. Highlight was the balcony overlooking the river mouth and the sea: well worth paying a premium for. Delicious breakfast with a range of yogurts, cereals and juices plus a very good...

We stayed here for just one night (Saturday) in a 'large double'. Not as large as I would have liked, but certainly adequate, & the balcony was a nice addition. The balcony catches the morning sun, & sitting out before breakfast was lovely. The window for breakfast is only an hour, between 8 & 9, which is shorter than most,...

We have visited Lynmouth for many years and have never been here. We visited for lunch. I didn't partake but they seem to have a really good range of ice creams. The service was good and I enjoyed my lunch (just a sandwich) but no problems. Will return, even considering staying as we found out they accept dogs.

Don't think this customer came to Riverside....we don't sell ice-creams!!!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have been awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, and have achieved the highest rating from the Food Standards Agency. We have seven rooms, six with sea views and private balconies. Each balcony is complete with chairs and table to allow you to sit and watch the world go by. Our restaurant is open between 10.00am and 5.00pm serving excellent freshly-made food, locally sourced and prepared by our in-house chef. Riverside Cottage is a perfect base for walking, cycling, fishing (River Lyn, harbour, beach or boat), and riding, pony trekking or just as a centre for North Devon touring. Alternately just relax on your balcony with a drink and admire the views (selected rooms only). ... more   less
