A SECLUDED hotel in Lynton has been recognised as one of the UK's best hotels.
The Sinai House Hotel in Lynway won a TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice award after being ranked the 20th best small hotel in the UK.
Nigel and Debbie Firman have owned the Sinai House for 19 months and attribute the award to good old fashioned hard work and decent customer service.
Debbie said: "It was a complete shock. One of our regular customers sent us a congratulations e-mail which is when we realised we had won."
She added people most often hear about the hotel through TripAdvisor reviews, of which 69 out of 75 currently rate the hotel as excellent.
Debbie hopes winning this award will give extra publicity to not only the hotel but Lynton as a destination.
"Lynton is such a fabulous place to live," she said.
