This is a wonderful place to stay, Caroline and Jon run a superb establishment, the rooms are extremely comfortable and clean and the breakfast is lovely. There is a choice of things to have for breakfast. We had a room that overlooked the garden and you could also see the hills in the distance. Caroline and Jon are extremely friendly...

Visited here last year and returned for a short stay again, and wouldn't stay anywhere different in Ilfracombe. Caroline and John are very welcoming hosts. Lovely big room overlooking the garden. Didn't have time to sit in the garden but it looked a restful spot, well kept and inviting. The room was well furnished and the bed large and comfortable....

Really nice de luxe room. Small sofa, shower room, enormous bed, ( I wouldn't want to make it ) everything spotlessly clean. Breakfast good choice, and good quality full English , we always judge by the sausages. Nice bright dining room. 8.30/9.30 . I think they said by arrangement could be earlier. We had room 11 which had lovely views...

The building and grounds were super, and the location ideal. The bedroom was immaculately clean, and had all modern amenities. Breakfast room, settings etc. were, as with everything here, exceptionally good, - as was the breakfast menu and the service. The hosts, Caroline and Jon, were extremely polite, pleasant and cheerful. Caroline was particularly helpful in advising us of regional...

Good selection of cooked and continental breakfast, my partner wasn't...

We only booked one night and wished we'd booked two... Driving through Ilfracombe, it was with a little trepidation that we approached the hotel, due to the amount of building work going on in the area making it look a little run down. However don't be put off, because it is clear that certainly this part of town is on...

Thank you so much Gemski77. What a brilliant review and additional photos too. One of my bug bears of this property which we are slowly rejuvenating is the carpets in two of the bathrooms. Not our choice and it is definitely being removed and updated later this year. It is so reassuring to hear your positive experience of our property...
