Thoroughly enjoyed a 4 night stay with family while in town for a wedding at Tunnels Beaches (which is just 10 minutes down the hill, 15 minutes back up!).

From arrival through to departure, owners Paula & Adam could not have been more hospitable... without doubt the friendliest hosts we've ever had the pleasure to meet.

The hotel is set in a Victorian villa, and as such, doesn't offer the standard identikit rooms of chain hotels... rather a boutique hotel experience without being pretentious. We stayed in a family room (room 2) which has a double & two single beds. It provided plenty of space and privacy (a dividing wall & curtain meant we could put the kids to bed & still move around without disturbing them).
Rooms 3 and 5 were taken by other family members & also looked great.

Breakfast was a delight... fussy kids, greedy dads & gluten intolerant grandmas were all catered for. I think the extended family attempted the entire menu & everything was very very good.

Our children also loved the hotel, highlights being the comfy beds, wonderful breakfasts and, above all, Bovril the dog who Paula and Adam kindly allowed us to take out for a walk along the nearby coastal path much to the kids delight!

Yes, after manoeuvring the very tight car park upon arrival, you'll probably ditch it for street parking (it's a quiet street with ample space), but, for me, that couldn't detract from a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Parking was a challenge as this place is on top of a hill. It's an old property with lots of stairs. I was expecting more of a 'boutique' hotel as it is described. No AC so if it's hot, it wouldn't be fun. Small shower room with a shower that took ages. It kept going hot and cold so hair washing was a challenge. Room needed some tlc as the paper was bubbling on the ceiling, but this isn't unexpected in an old house. Breakfast was quite good. Not sure it's worth the money but it is a nice little place

We stayed for 3 nights, on arriving at the property the lobby way to the front door is tatty and covered in cobwebs and general dust it is not a great impression. On entering this "Boutique Style B & B " as they describe you are hit with the smell - musty and old - carpets are old and the feeling is the property is not loved and certainly not cleaned. The cocktail bar is in fact a front room with an honesty bar - did not look appealing to stay for drink thou. Our room was on the top floor, no AC, bed was comfortable so have no complaints however the room is decorated on the cheap, again not clean. Bathroom was TINY and the shower had no water pressure so much so my wife who has long hair could not wash her hair for the duration of the sty. We pointed this out to the owner who just said I know! Breakfast room was like a 1960's cafe, dirty tables, poor food and decor again. Windows filthy. Would I return you have guessed right NO - this is a B&B that needs a clean. It is not anything like a Boutique style B&B and the website is pretending it is something it is not I afraid, For what I paid I would have expected SO much more.

This is a fantastic little place to stay, great location to sit and while away the morning after one of Paula's great "Full English" or if you feel more energetic then the coastal path is just behind the house, this is def worth the effort as fantastic views and blew the London cobwebs away.

Everything was spot on, rooms are really clean and plenty of space, everyone that works there goes out of their way to make you feel welcome, will definitely be going back.

Me and my partner David stayed in this beautiful place for the weekend and we had a fantastic time! It was such a relaxed environment basically felt like being at home. They were fantastic hosts from showing us where we should visit in North Devon plus booking us tables for dinner! Breakfast was also great we tried each dish over the 3 days and they were all incredible! We will definitely be staying there in the future.

P.S the view from the House is also stunning looking over the little shipping village of Ilfracombe
