Ideal location for visiting Ilfracombe and surrounding area. The hotel is family run and has a nice feel about it. The room we had was immaculately clean and the bathroom suite looked new. The hotel somewhat dated, like most of them in Ilfracombe but good value for money. I have only two complaints: (1) The bed. It felt like it...

Payed for an upgraded room which was acceptable other than a couple of light bulbs not working which we reported within 2 hours of our arrival and a dodgy bathroom door. Room had a lovely bay window but furnished with two hard backed chairs unsutible for relaxing with a book in. Breakfast left a sour taste in our mouths quite...

Very cheap break with groupon, was made to feel very welcome. Room was clean, comfortable and warm. Deserved its three stars. It was walking distance to the town. Don't go behind the hotel for parking as its across the street! Breakfast was lovely, evening meal was nice but could have been a bit more for my partner but can't complain...

Hotel was very clean throughout. Friendly Staff. Sadly I feel that the Management was economizing at the detriment of the paying Guests, on most aspects. I paid for an upgraded room , which I feel was an ordinary Double. I have never been asked for a 1% charge on a Debit Card Before.

This is a simple ,family run hotel with no frills. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. Our room which was rather small but it was clean, and simply decorated,as was the en-suite..The hotel is centrally situated on the main road, but this was pretty quiet road. It was a short uphill road to the shopping centre and cinema....
