Clean and comfortable- Rating 4/5

My stay was comfortable . Room 7 , although compact , had a double bed with good mattress and the shower room was spacious and very clean. The communal areas are somewhat old-fashioned but this did not detract from the comfort . I did not have breakfast so cannot comment on the food . Would stay here again .

A friendly couple manages the Bay House and ensures that the rooms are clean. Great! Town Beach x.

Fantastic stay at Lyme Bay Hotel - Rating 5/5

A warm welcome from Nikki and Ian, we arrived early and was able to check in. Convenient car park and only a few minutes walk from Dawlish town centre.We had room 11, it was lovely with part sea view, a huge bed and the mattress was so comfortably.For breakfast we had the full English whichwas lovely with really crispy bacon, just how I like it.If we are in Dawlish again, we will definitely be staying at Lyme Bay, thanks Nikki and Ian you have a gem of a hotel.

Lovely stay - Rating 5/5

We have just spent two nights at this guesthouse. The location is perfect, the clean rooms, comfy bed and added extras such as tioletries, towels were very appreciated.We had a sea view which was great watching the sunrise.We did not get to taste the award wining breakfast as out of season, however the hosts are great and give you lots of information.I would recommend and will return.
