Stayed recently and the area and hotel are both very beautiful, had a few issues with our room, customer service was good although initially I felt we were blamed for the issues in the staffs attitudes, I felt I'd paid a lot of money for a room with a sea view that barely had a view of the sea but...

A wonderful surprise from the moment you step in to this charming hotel. The decor is amazing with a mix of original feature and modern facilities. Ann-Marie was incredibly helpful and our room was spacious with a view to the harbour. Only stayed on night but wished we could have stayed longer.

We stayed back in June for 3 nights booking last minute. Rooms are very well furnished, though we would make a recommendation to move the TV, as it is on the side of the wall with no bracket the sunlight from the skylight shone straight on making it difficult to view the screen. The extras included in the room were... More

Set high on a high but within walking distance of town, Wildercombe House offered accommodation of a very high standard. Rooms were tastefully decorated and amenities were excellent. Breakfast was fantastic, freshly cooked with plenty of choice. Would definitely stay here again.
