We were looking forward to a few days away using Lynmouth as our base to explore Exmoor National Park.
Set in the centre of Lynmouth the Bath Hotel has obviously seen better days and is starting to show its age. It must have been fabulous in its hey day, the selection and the quality of the food was certainly adequate.
We had no problems with parking, we managed to squeeze our car in the car park although it only has very small car park not enough if the hotel were full, which luckily for us it wasn't.
The general decor and furnishings were quite dated similar to their guests who mostly seemed to be very elderly.
The Bath Hotel has a bar and restaurant open to the general public.
On reflection there looked to be some nicer small hotels and little B&Bs in the town.
Unique Quality: The Bath Hotel has a central location, with some rooms having nice views across the harbour and the pretty village of Lynmouth.
Lynton and Lynmouth make a perfect base from which to explore Exmoor and the stunning surrounding countryside.
Directions: Central near harbour
Remove the telephone and the television from the rooms and you could almost be back in Victorian England, albeit with en-suite facilities. As with most of the hotels here in North Devon the emphasis is on relaxation and service and not with a hugely expensive price tag. As a place to chill out for a few days you could do far worse than stay here at The Bath and if you do want to do something more energetic then the location on the edge of Exmoor is an ideal base for walking and other outdoor pursuits.
Unique Quality: Many of the rooms boast sea and harbour views, though these command a premium price in high season, but even then this is still a good value for money hotel. Dinner in the restaurant offers an extensive menu of local produce, freshly cooked to order, as well as, unusual for many hotels, various more "snacky" options for those wishing a simpler meal. With old-fashioned silver service and a decent wine list the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast rates are exceptional value for money.
PS the beer's not too bad either!
Directions: Set slightly back from the seafront almost opposite the harbour.
