Our room was clean with a great view of the water; Sharon the hostess is charming and very inviting. We were provided with the best English Breakfast we had during our 3 week trip to England and Wales. Highly recommend this unique B&B!

Stayed here August bank holiday for 3 nights. The hosts were sooooo lovely. Sharon was very well knowing about all the best places to eat and visit and could advise us well. She booked us a table at an amazing restaurant so saved us the time to enjoy our break. The breakfast was lovely! Great alternatives if you didn't feel...

My fiancé and I had 2 lovely nights at the very reasonably priced Collingdale. We opted for a sea view room with king size bed. Just the right amount of space and furniture, including full length mirror and facilities like kettle and great selection of teas/coffee/hot choc and also good hair dryer. Bathroom was cosy but well equipped. Delicious breakfast...

Stayed at the Collingdale over this weekend, and had to write a review straight away when we got home. After reading a few negative reviews about the parking, we arrived mid afternoon on Friday, and found a space outside straight away. We left the car for 3 days and it was completely safe. We also saw the alternative car park,...

I booked the Collingdale blindly. I was visiting Ilfracombe for 3 days/2 nights for my friends wedding. I loved it. My wife was unable to travel down with me as she had a last minute commitment. I kept on the double room and am so glad I did. I was fortunate enough to stay in room 6. This was spacious...

Just returned home after a 7 night stay. Really enjoyed our stay after an initial oh my gosh moment!!! Parking can be a bit of a problem, but we got a space fairly easily. The hills are a bit of a shock but we walked with no problem. The taxi from town to the b & b were very reasonable....

Recently returned to this wonderful B&B for the third time. Great location, just a short walk to the harbour and some lovely restaurants. The B&B offers high standard, comfortable and very clean accommodation with lots of thoughtful touches. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice to suit all tastes. The host are extremely welcoming and helpful.
