We spent the Easter weekend at Ilfracombe and stayed in this delightful bed and breakfast. The breakfast room has lots of lovely Art Deco collectibles in pride of place. Spotlessly clean, Marianna, the owner, spends a lot of time keeping the place immaculate. We were in the Joan Fontaine room which was the biggest, and very comfortable. There were even...

The room was immaculately clean and comfortable, big telly, great shower and nice bed. However, it was so regimented that breakfast was between 0800 and 0830 exactly (on a holiday?????) with no flexibility. Breakfast was ok but smiley potatoe faces isn't so cool. Continental breakfast has ham, cheese and yoghurt, not just two croissants!!!! The owners were very nice but...

Having experienced a number of guest houses in Ilfracombe, we would, without hesitation, single out Coastal Fringes as the very best. It's also the best value (besides some highly competitive room rates you can also expect "the works" come breakfast time), the most stylish (three highly individually movie themed rooms), the best appointed (besides tea and coffee, you'll also find...

We decided to extend our break and travel to Ilfracombe for a couple of days, hoping to find appropriate accommodation on arrival. We viewed two guest houses which were not at all suitable. We spotted Coastal Fringes on Trip Advisor. Believe me the positive feedback given is all true! We gave Marianna a call. Although she could only accomodate us...

My wife and I have stayed with Marianna and David on many occasions in a succession of their Guest Houses since 1988 and it so happened we were their first guests when they opened "Coastal Fringes". We last stayed with them there in October 2010. It has always been a delightful experience to be looked after with such consideration and...

Now its our sixth visit in the past two years to this outstanding guest house! On arriving there is ample car parking spaces for all the quests adjacent to the hotel and a very well maintained front garden and with a wide variety of plants, the whole look of the building and grounds looks so inviting and welcoming!

Coastal Fringes is about a 15 minute walk from Tunnels Beaches and 25 minutes from the harbour. It doesn't look that great from the outside but we were made to feel incredibly welcome. Our room appeared clean and had undergone some modernisation in terms of decor (with the exception of the shower and seperate toilet), but if you are after...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. David and Maianna are caring people who can't do enough to make your holiday enjoyable. We stayed in the Joan Fontaine room which was one of the nicest rooms we've ever stayed in. The breakfasts were huge with lots of choice. Homemade biscuits everyday. We would definitely stay here again.
