We were booked in as part of a family gathering, and had heard how wonderful this place was over and over from those booking it. Can't be that good, we thought, but it actually is. To start with we arrived a day early (!) but were fitted in smoothly with no hassles. We ate in as a family one night, and wished we could eat there every night. The room was great, fabulous bathroom (it makes a HUGE difference), tea making facilities and comfortable beds, with room to swing the proverbial cat. Good views and the service was friendly, helpful above and beyond the call of duty.
I don't know if I'll ever get back to Ilfracombe (which is a pity as it's a great, friendly little town), but if I do, this is where I'll be booking. Thanks for a great time.
