We arrived at Laston House after a long ride on the motorbike in not great weather and were probably a bit tired and fed up when we arrived...as we got to the end of the long drive we did wonder what we had booked as it felt a bit like we had arrived at a haunted house! However, on opening...

We stayed here for one night with our baby and had the best nights sleep I've ever had in a hotel. The room was lovely, the superking size bed really comfortable and the breakfast delicious. It's a stunning house with lovely interior finish. The only thing we heard during the night was an owl twit-twooing! Ilfracombe itself is just amazing...

We were very disappointed when we got to Laston House because their website is very misleading and the shot of the exterior of the house has been photoshopped to give the impression it stands in wooded grounds. It doesn't. You go down a very potholed drive past a shabby shed and there is a bit of lawn with some scruffy...

Close enough to easily walk into Ilfracombe and with stunning sea views, Laston House is a really lovely place. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts are delicious. We were made to feel very welcome by Abi and Greg, checking in earlier than the stated time when we arrived and later than we should have on the Sunday....

Probably the best guest house I've ever stayed in. Large, warm, comfy room. Delicious breakfast (best poached eggs ever) and lovely friendly people. I really will try a return visit at some point. Ilfracombe itself was also very pretty and friendly.

Beautiful building, lovely rooms with comfy beds and stunning sea views. Delicious breakfasts especially the bacon! Abi and Greg are lovely people and very welcoming, and kindly let us check out late in order to fit in a bridal hair trial - not sure what we would have done otherwise so very grateful!
