We stopped in the 2 bedroom apartment for 1 night. Very clean everything you need also had breakfast which was excellent . Would stop again staff were friendly . Hotel handy for the pavilion. Car park a bit small but was able to park in the street outside, so not a problem.

My parents stayed here last night and we chose it because it was close to Cliffs Pavillion. They said the hotel was very clean, the food was lovely and there was plenty. They also had a big room. Nothing to fault and we will definitely keep a note of this hotel. Thank you Ilfracombe Hotel, from Anne & Frank.

If this place could have been any better, i would think i was at my own house. These people treated us like we were family. We had a few problems like when you go anywhere but they were able to satisfy all our problems quickly and efficiently you could not ask for any more. I spent 3 weeks with these...

We stayed in this hotel back in August. The hotel looked very old and the car park had limited parking spaces. We stayed in a room at the ground floor, the noise from the bar area and upstairs were very loud, we could hear every movement of people from upstairs. Although it was reasonably clean, this hotel is lack of...

Arrived here today for overnight stay. Upon arrival the hotel has mistakenly booked us in for the following night. However, we were asked if we didn't mind having an apartment instead for the same price. It's basically a flat with lounge kitchen bathroom and 2 bedrooms. A little apprehensive at first BUT it was great. And we were only charged...
