After reading reviews about Ilfracombe holiday park I was really worried about the cleanliness of the apartments. I booked a gold apartment as advised by other reviews, and was pleased to find that they were clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you required. Didn't use oven so cannot comment, but microwave, toaster,kettle, fridge were very clean. Bathroom with shower...

Many in the crowd having travelled far and wide to enjoy the music , it is a shame that more local people do not support this event as it is...

The Holiday Park and facilities were of a good standard and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The entertainment was good and the food was great at the onsite facility. The accommodation itself was what let the holiday down. The beds were very comfy but the lack of a shower really let it down. I tried using the shower...

Total waste of money! It was dirty, damp, smelly, run down and small. The heater didn't work and the mattresses and bedding smelt damp and mouldy. We complained 3 times and no one came. Would not stay here again if you paid me!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ilfracombe Holiday Park has everything you could want on a family holiday. A 56’ heated pool, a sauna, children’s play areas and an internet cafe provide you with all the comforts of home and more. Relax in our pool during the day, and then head to the Exmoor Club for the evening’s entertainment, free to everybody staying at our Ilfracombe Holiday Parks. This park is set at the top of the valley Ilfracombe lies in, so you get views right down over the town and out to sea, exactly what you’d expect from a Devon holiday. If you don’t want to deal with cooking on holiday then our Farmhouse Kitchen Restaurant can cook you up a wide variety of fare, from low price snacks to full grills and specialty dishes. We even offer takeaways. If you are going to cook for yourself, our onsite shop sells everything you’ll need, and there’s a Tesco superstore just a five minute walk away. ... more   less
