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...

We stayed here for three nights in July. We found the the owners of the Collingdale along with the staff/cleaners friendly and extremely helpful. The Room we stayed in was fantastic and nicely decorated with an excellent view of Ilfracombe Harbour, our children shared a non sea view room too, and this was likewise faultless. Breakfast was excellent, with a...
