Only stayed for one night as i was on a motorcycle touring break, but would have quite happily stayed for longer.
Rod was very welcoming and provided a very nice breakfast, and i would certainly stay again if in the area.

Thank you for your review of Varley House.

It was good to meet you and that we were able to help you in your one night stay.
If you do come back to the area again, booking direct gets you the best rates, not the OTA's

Welcoming Host friendly and full of local knowledge. Nice clean accommodation and tasty breakfast. A downhill walk to the harbour was quite easy. Though we always got a taxi back cost 3/4 pounds. Would rebook if we visit Ilfracombe again .

Room tip: Rooms front of house have nice views.

Our stay at Varley House was simply wonderful.
The Rod and Helen was very welcoming and accommodating. The service we received was friendly, the accommodation was warm and homely with a breath taking view of the lovely Devon countryside out looking the Bristol coast.

We recommend this house whether for a weekend or longer stay.

Room tip: The room was spacious and comfortable with lots of storage and a lovely view of the channel.

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by the owner,Rod, who explained the facilities and showed us to our room. The three person room was light and airy with distant sea views. Our daughter was really chuffed to find a birthday card on her bedside table. We had only mentioned her birthday in passing when booking, so this was a nice touch. There were both mugs and cups & saucers plus a selection of quality tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits together with a small bowl of sweets. Even a chocolate mint on everyone’s pillow. The power shower worked well and everything was spotlessly clean. There was a good choice of options at breakfast including full English, branded cereals, fruit, pastries and even kippers if you so desired. It was also nice to have a pot of butter and a good selection of miniature jars of jam rather than the usual plastic and foil packaged alternatives. The hotel is in an elevated position on a quiet residential street street approximately 3/4 mile from the harbour. It’s an easy 10-15 minute walk down to the town but quite a climb on the way back. Apparently taxis are very reasonable though. There are several parking bays on the property and plenty of street parking. Although we only stayed one night we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Varley House and the hospitality was second to none.

The photo was taken from our room.
