"Recent business trip to Dawlish and discovered the Lyme Bay Hotel. The room was superb and the attention to detail throughout was enchanting. The local fare served for breakfast was the best ever."

"We spent four nights over the New Year period. The service was outstanding; Ian and Nikki made us feel very welcome. The Rooms were spotless; the breakfasts were most ample with a wide choice of cereals, fruit juices, fresh fruit and preserves, the full English breakfast was cooked to order and kept us going for most of the day. The Lyme Bay House provided an ideal atmosphere for a relaxing break and safe secure parking. We will certainly return and will recommend this hotel to our friends."

"went to Dawlish to relax and wind down, got a good welcome and a good room. Had a good sing-a-long in the bar/lounge at night and a good sized breakfast in the morning, just what we wanted."

Best B&B I have ever stayed in

"We went for the August bank holiday this year. When we arrived I think they were a little suprised as we were alot younger (in our 20s) than most of their regular clientle, but they were really helpful, explained where everything was, Nikki is the friendliest B&B owner I have ever met! Our room was really comfortable and clean and they even lent us plates so we could have snacks infront of the tv in the evenings. The breakfast was amazing, didn't need to eat for the rest of the day (except the odd tearoom visit). All in all it had a very homely feel and you were made to feel very welcome. We didn't spend much time in Dawlish itself, but the B&B was a great base to use the coastal path to Teignmouth etc and since we had a car (everyone has a parking space in their private carpark) we could explore some of dartmoor too. I would definately recommend a visit to Canonteign falls if you come to the area. When we did walk into Dawlish in search of fish and chips on the first night, it was very easily, the centre is just at the bottom of the road and sitting by the brook was pretty. Thankyou for making our 1 year anniversary so wonderful"

"We've flown many hours from Korea and didn't expect to get to Devon. It was 9 pm and I was wondering for any B&B and so exhausted with it. But how lucky we were! Nikki and Ian were just so friendly and kind as much as I could imagine from the exterior of 'Lyme Bay'. The room was so perfect and very clean and the breakfast was too. We'll get the same room if we have a baby soomer or later. Thank you so much for your caring us!"

"An excellent hotel run by a friendly couple. Very good breakfast with choice of local marmalades and jams etc. Well situated, only a short walk to the town centre and sea front. The lounge is superb with comfortable furniture, bar and large widescreen tv. Has its own car park with spaces all side by side so guests are unlikely to block each other in."

"This was our 2nd visit. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Breakfast times were very flexible and the food was all freshly cooked and piping hot. There was an excellent selection of cereals, fruit juices etc., and a range of preserves. There was a choice of full English breakfast whcih was enough to set me up for the day or several other options. I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation."

"To get anything bad out of the way to begin with, when we arrived nobody was there to let us in, and ringing the contact numbers left on the window brought no response for a couple of hours. That said, when we did get in the owner was apologetic, and made some effort to make amends, and so we got a room upgrade, to the best one in the hotel (room 2, the honeymoon suite), with a partial sea view, widescreen freeview TV and large well stocked bathroom. The other rooms we were shown were a little bit on the small side. Breakfast was pretty good, but more or less what you would expect in a B&B, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast and full english to order. They have made some effort with the decor, with paintings by local artists on the walls, mostly land/seascapes, and a nice bar area, with widescreen TV & comfortable settees, although beer choice a bit disappointing. On the whole, a nice place to stay; Don`t be put off by the initial problem we encountered, this was an administrative error, to be fair. Dawlish town, 3 minutes down the hill, is a nice place even off season, although with limited things to do, it is still nice for walks along the coast. There are 2 pubs, the Exeter and The Railway Arms, up an alley opposite the station entrance, the latter at least does some decent food. There`s also a chinese restaurant & takeaway, Hoi Shing, along The Strand and a couple of chip shops, one of which also does curry (takeaway only). Finally, there is a pub, the Smuggler`s inn, nr. Holcombe between Dawlish & Teignmouth, that we heard a few people saying good things about, but that it is important to make a booking in the evenings."
