We have just returned from a lovely three nights stay in Ilfracombe. Upon arrival we were made to feel welcome straight away! We were unlucky that all the Lundy boat trips were fully booked for the following day, but despite this Sharon still tried to give them a call to see if they had any availability. As other people have...

This was the second time we had booked to stay at The Collingdale. Both Sharon and Daryl were so welcoming that we felt more like we were staying with friends. We stayed in room 2 this time which is the large superior room. It's so well appointed with a glorious view of the harbour and Verity via the room's balcony....

Sharon and Daryll were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Always willing to share local knowledge and recommendations which helped us as we hadn't planned our trip. The room had a stunning view and was always immaculate. The breakfasts are second to none - My partner even claimed that it was the 'BEST bacon he's ever...

We have just come back from yet another amazing stay at the Collingdale B & B. This is our 4th stay with Sharon and Darrol and have never had one complain, ( and I'm afraid to say we are very fussy). I have to say after reading recent reviews I find this very hard to believe and they sit very...

Lovely hotel - Sharon was very friendly and helpful place was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was delicious. The view from the room was great. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

I recently had a 4-night stay. On FIRST IMPRESSIONS it did not look like the photos on the website and the room were considerable smaller. Within minutes of being welcomed to the hotel we were being asked to make sure we keep our noise down on returning in the evenings - this was something I found rather rude as we...

Not normally one for reviews, I feel compelled to provide a short review of our 4 night stay at The Collingdale as it was quite the experience! In Ilfracombe to see our friends wed, we stayed at The Collingdale more out of necessity than choice. The location of The Collingdale is decent enough, with a 10 minute walk from the...

We booked two nights for part of a four day stay in Devon. We hadn't originally planned to go to Ilfracombe, but the combination of watching our budget and our available dates brought The Collingdale up in our search. I spoke with the owners, and we booked direct, as it was a little cheaper than doing it through a booking...
