This is my second time at Lyme Regis. Check-in was smooth, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room is basic with ensuite bathroom. There is a large desk area by the window great for my paperwork. My room was quite warm as there is no airflow, but I bought a small fan at Wilkos for £6 and that did the trick. They do not have fans for the rooms. For those that are used to having tea/coffee/kettle in the room, this is not available, but a kettle & mugs can be found in the shared kitchen and you can buy whatever you need at the Tesco's Express downstairs. The shared kitchen was clean and it has everything you need: stove/cooker, full size fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, cutlery, dishes etc., dining table & chairs and 2 couches. It's nice having access to a kitchen. The Lyme Regis building is central to the station, you can walk to the beach, local restaurants or down to the square and public transit is basically right out front.

The availability of Lyme Regis House met my needs very well and I was very satisfied with the experience. I handed in my form locally and made one or two comments about how things might be clearer for new arrivals who aren't used to the set up, but this was intended to be constructive rather than overly critical of the current set up.
