'My friend and I had a very comfortable stay at Lyme Bay. Nikki made us very welcome and her breakfasts were just what we wanted - plenty of choice. The rooms were clean and well appointed with everything we needed. It was just a short walk from the station, although uphill. We would definitely return.'

'Yes you are right. Most guests comment on how comfortable the Four Poster bed is. The room is spacious with Sea View. It has a large table for reading, spreading-out or computer working. The bathroom has both bath and shower. There is also a Mini-Bar Fridge. The room is also equipped with a 42\" Flat Screen TV. We are glad you enjoyed it here in Dawlish. It is very different to most places especially larger towns in land. Even in the Autumn and Winter months it is a welcome alternative to the hustle and bustle of city life and there is plenty to do if you like walking, cycling and outdoor life. Alternatively, if you just want to relax you can stay in and read or watch TV. Public transport in the area is extremely good with buses and trains providing good access to plenty of places nearby. we can always offer a few suggestions if you are not sure what you want to do.

You also have to pay for some street parking and of course the Car Parks. Because we are only a few minutes walk from the town centre it is very convenient to leave the car and walk into Dawlish. Also, the public transport is excellent - buses and trains - so getting around the area without taking the car is very easy. So much so that many of our regular customers park the car when they arrive and do not use it again until they leave. Thank you so much for your kind comments. Regards Nikki & Ian'

Being so close to the railway station – only a few hundred yards – you can start by experiencing the wonderful coastal railway line built by Brunel and featured on the BCC TV program Coast. There are fantastic sea and river views to Exeter one way and Newton Abbot the other. It is also very worthwhile getting the train to Paignton and then the steam from there to Kinswear and Dartmouth.

So ended up with room 12 which was noisy. with it being a hot day we left the window open when we when out to find on our return 4 bugs in the room from the plants outside. so should have a fly net on the window..

'I travelled down on the Friday before a Bank Holiday, and as I was approaching the time I said I would arrive, the owners (Nikki and Ian) phoned me to make sure I was ok, which I thought was a really nice touch. When I arrived, they were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was well presented and neat and tidy. There is a bar area, with a nice selection of drinks, and always friendly conversation. The breakfasts were superb, and very filling. As a man used to staying in hotels most of the week because of business, it was increibly refreshing to receive a personal touch, almost like the theme tune from Cheers, where everybody knows your name. Would I stay here again? DEFINITELY'

'Friendly welcome - comfortable room with sea view - excellent breakfast (all the best ingredients), grilled instead of fried, therefore not running in fatty grease, fresh fruits, cereals and good bread used for toast plus excellent freshly made coffee. There is a bar available but most important is the provision of adequate private parking. Booking was straight-forward (in our case made quite well in advance)and a subsequent 'phone call requesting an extra night was dealt with in an efficient and easy manner. Owners, Ian and Nikky, neither of whom did we know previously, made certain our stay was enjoyable without imposing themselves upon us.'

'Dear David & Ann We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is very satisfying to know that you found our advice and recommendations helpful. We want our guests to have an exceptional time when visiting Dawlish and the surrounding area so we feel that it important that they know the best places to go especially for evening meals. Some guests prefer to do their own research or take “pot luck” and find places for themselves. That is of course fine with us. However, the vast majority welcome a few suggestions which we are always pleased to offer. Upon check-in all guests are offered a Dawlish Map showing the location of Lyme Bay House and other local amenities. This is quite helpful for locating some of the places just outside the main areas around The Lawn. Thank you for your compliments about our breakfasts and Nikki’s Fresh Fruit Salad – melon, pineapple, grapes, strawberries et al – she really appreciates it. We look forward to seeing you both again sometime. Regards Nikki & Ian'

'We have been travelling to Dawlish for many, many years and at different times of the year as well. It was our first time staying here and wasn't disappointed. The room we had, with sea view, was very clean and very comfortable. Also room was on a very busy main road and we couldn't hear any traffic at all. The only thing I found missing in the room was a hairdryer, but I managed without,it's just a minor detail, and it didn't spoil our holiday. I'm sure had I asked Nikki she would have loaned me one. Breakfast was very enjoyable. Nikki and Ian were the perfect hosts, very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Lyme Bay House is very central and the on site parking was just great, no need to take car into Dawlish as it's just a five minute walk away. Buses stop right outside and Dawlish station is 5/10 minute walk, obviously, depending on how slow/fast you walk. Would have no hesitation in recommending Lyme Bay House and will certainly be returning on our next visit to Dawlish. Thank you Nikki and Ian, happy golfing.'
