Having booked here for a wedding this weekend, we were greeted by very welcoming staff. The hotel is under renovation, so some parts are a little shabby but everything is clean and warm. The breakfast is full and varied, and the range of rooms are excellent. Very well priced too. Great place to stay in Ilfracombe.

The hotel is undergoing refurbishment which it is in need of. The twin room we had was small and rather dated. The beds were comfy though and the shower powerful enough. The staff were all helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was better than expected and the cooked breakfast was actually really tasty. Overall at present it has a rather...

We had a good 2 night stay here in August. Fantastic location, main areas have been refurbished and were lovely including breakfast room. Our room was so small that you could barely walk round the bed and we were up in the eaves so we had a slanting roof! There are slowly refurbing the whole hotel and i'm sure it...
