Nice staff, clean rooms, had a 5 month old baby with us and his cot was set up next to the bed waiting for us. Quick easy check in check out process. Also the car parking was right behind the hotel, easy access. Close to the river and a short drive from the many beaches of Ilfracombe.

We found heaven! Clean, comfortable, cozy, great staff who will go over and above for everyone. We we're...

Wonderful seaside resort. Hotel was really nice and the staff really made an effort to cater for all the guests. Car parking was limited to only 7 cars but off season parking is so cheap you don't mind paying .Would definitely go again for new year

Having traveled with Alfa coach for a New Year weekend, I was very surprised at how clean, smart and well carpeted this hotel was. The only downside I could find was that for a large hotel it only had one life to cover 4 floors, the dining room was on the first floor this meant that many of the people...

We spent new year at this hotel with friends. We booked this with Alpha travelling on 30/12/16 and returned on 2/1/17. What a fantastic new year party experience - food, entertainment, evening buffet, hotel and staff - everything was excellent. Would certainly book another new year party at this hotel.

The room itself just needs updating but its only cosmetic. The staff were marvellous, extremely efficient, they actually looked happy in the work they were doing & nothing...
