Since opening the hotel in April last year the team has continued to work hard to offer every guest a fantastic experience so it’s great to see our offering reflected by this prestigious accolade. This is a huge achievement for us and we’re honoured to now hold five AA stars.”
Gary Baldwin, senior hotel and restaurant inspector, added: “Following a series of inspections to measure consistency and quality the AA have awarded five stars to Lympstone Manor. Lympstone is a very special place, with excellent levels of service from the close nit professional team, each bringing with them a wealth of experience from some of the UK’s finest hotels.

This official star grading is only the beginning of the Lympstone journey, with exciting plans ahead to make this an even greater destination.”
