Have stayed here several times since mid 90's always sure of a warm welcome, & great service. Ideally situated for the harbour and town centre, Ilfracombe's a lovely little town, with lots of other stunning places to visit a short car ride away, look forward to returning.

We were attending a wedding, loved the friendly staff and service was wonderful. Breakfast was brilliant too. Would come back and bring friends. Rooms were clean, comfortable beds. Good location so could walk to places. Used a iron and hairdryer, both we’re good quality

We had a lovely welcome from the owners son Nick, very lovely B & B in the heart of Ilfracombe harbour. Perfect for our stay before our trip to Lundy. Lovely room and full English breakfast, definitely a place to be for a short stay.
