This hotel is actually much better than it looks initially. Not too keen on the decor and furnishings etc, but very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast.

We just returned from an enjoyable 4 night stay at Crescent House Hotel. Comfortable, spotlessly clean rooms (family room comprising of one double room, one twin room & a bathroom behind one door). Fantastic breakfast each morning which set us all up for the whole day of exploring Ilfracombe and the surrounding area. Crescent House is situated right in the...

When we arrived after our long journey from Essex, we were met by a very friendly owner who went out of his way to help and advise us on the best places to visit etc.. Our room was spotlessly clean and we did not hear any noise, even though the hotel was full. The breakfast was splendid, the staff first...

We had a very pleasant weekend stay -- a big, light room newly refurbished with everything we needed. Good breakfast and very helpful staff. The only niggle was parking - the long stay carparks are reasonable at £3.10 per day but the others are £1 an hour, and tracking down a long-stay is not that easy (the tourist office were...

You can arrange with the hotel to get you a permit before your arrival.we had no problem parking .if I ever went back...

Can't fault this b&b - bed so comfortable and breakfast excellent. Building ongoing refurbishment but this in no way affects comfort - spotlessly clean. In middle of town - couldn't be better really!! Only reservation - keep bedroom window closed - noise from seagulls horrendous!!

We stayed here for two nights and couldn't have asked for more considering the price we paid. First impressions on walking through the main entrance was how clean and tidy the reception area was. The room contained everything we could have needed and the en suite seemed to have been recently refirbished and was also beautifully clean. Breakfast was excellent....

I stayed for a long 3-day weekend - overall it was pretty good, except my room was pretty cold and I couldn't see any way to turn the heat on. I suppose that is done "centrally" and it was too early in the winter season for the heating to be on. Still my room had a nice view and was...

“Rooms facing the street can get a bit of noise as revellers make their way around the town; it didn't seem to carry on late into the night but perhaps worth considering if you are a light sleeper or an early bird.”
