We had the pleasure of staying in this delightful Guest House and it could not have been any more pleasant. We were greeted by Anne-Marie who was genuinely charming and showed us to our room which, like the rest of the house, was tastefully decorated and beautifully presented. I cannot recommend this highly enough. If you are in the area,...

From the moment we arrived, we knew we would have a wonderful experience in this beautiful guest house. It was quickly sensed that the lovely premises had been completely restored to it's present glory, and it seemed that no expense had been spared in the process. We stayed in room 11, which would have been more than adequate for a...

I really can't fault this place in any way. Anne-Marie and all of her staff were friendly and professional and made our stay very comfortable. Everything is spotlessly clean and the building is very impressive with large halls, high ceilings and big rooms. The bathrooms are finished to a really high standard and again spotlessly clean. We stayed with our...

I really love attention to detail & cleanliness and this hotel doesn't disappoint. Anne-Marie was such a great host, with a very tastefully decorated and impeccable property and amazing views, breakfast and service. The extra touches to accommodate our small baby really made our stay particularly special. If you're visiting Ilfracombe you have to stay here!

Just returned from a lovely break in this stunning house. A wonderful welcome from Anne Marie who is extremely helpful....nothing is too much trouble. This amazing house has been tastefully refurbished , is extremely comfortable and immaculately clean. It's a 15-20 leisurely walk to the harbour if you're feeling up to it but if not there's a bus stop nearby....
