Stopped here last summer for my birthday. It's run by a really nice couple who seem to genuinely care about the service they are providing. The house itself is beautiful snd the room was clean spacious with sea views. Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay in Laston House. Comfy and spacious rooms with a super view over Ilfracombe and the sea. The hosts Abi and Greg were friendly and welcoming and the guest lounge was a great place to relax at the end of the day before going up to our room. Guidance on walks and maps were available to help us plan our walks. The location was perfect as we were just a quick stroll from the harbour yet the house seemed peaceful and away from any hustle and bustle. We are already planning our next stay here.

Great loaction handy for walking to the town centre or harbour. The house is quiet probably because its set in it's own grounds. The room was spacious and clean. Comfortable bed. Really enjoyed the breakfast.

This was our first long weekend out with my toddler twin boys. We all had a great time and Abi and Gregg made us feel like home. They left some toys in the boys bedroom and in the lounge so they could play with them. They also helped us with bottles and prepared a lovely breakfast suitable for all of us. If you have children and need to have a break without spending a fortune I suggest laston house as they have also adjacent rooms so that babies and parents have a proper rest and it could be a great option to all the other self catering places (which I believe don't give much rest to parents anyway).

We came to stay at Laston House last summer, not long after the lovely owners Abi and Greg had taken over, and what a super job they have done. Although Laston House is a beautiful building anyway, they have obviously been working hard to create a really special place to stay, with no small detail left unattended. The hotel now has a real boutique feel, though still with all the warmth, hospitality and personal touches that we look for in a B&B. Our bedroom on the ground floor was spacious, light and beautifully decorated - and the bed super comfy. As always Abi and Greg made us very welcome, and had lots of time for us, chatting to us about the local area and recommending things for us to do. Would highly recommend a wander down to the harbour to see Verity, Damien Hursts latest addition to the town. We were lucky enough to be staying over New Year with friends of ours and we all came away agreeing that it was one of our best New Year celebrations, Laston House was the perfect place to see in 2013 and Abi and Greg made us feel like friends rather than guests!
We're already planning our next visit!

I took my four year old son to stay at Laston House as a new year treat, and what a treat it was! We were greeted by the lovely Abi and Greg with a much needed cup of tea and home made Christmas cake, perfect after a long train journey. As there was just the two of us we shared a single room and had use of a brand new bathroom with power shower, I even had a clean dressing gown hung up waiting for me. The view was great over the harbour and a short walk away we could admire Verity, or Liberty as my son prefers to call the impressive new statue.
The grand staircase gives the feeling of another time and the main lounge looked splendid decked out in homemade paper chains. Evan enjoyed the lounge as there was various games for him to be entertained by and nice snugly blankets on the backs of comfy armchairs to nurse my New Years Day hangover at the same time.
Laston House feels like a luxury you should feel guilty about but at this price there is no need! Will be looking forward to my next stay in 2013
