This property is located just on the edge of Ilfracombe, but within easy walking distance of the fabulous harbour & coastal paths.
Our room was stunning with an amazing view of Ilfracombe harbour & Verity the 60' tall sculpture that now dominates the harbour entrance.
The owner Tricia was exceptionally helpful & provided advice on walks to try & the best places to eat. ( We would certainly recommend The Thatched Inn just nearby & the Terrace & Tapas Wine Bar!)
Breakfasts were first class & if you can find a better "room with a view" in Ilfracombe then I'd be amazed.

Room Tip: Room 7 is stunning & has a king-size bed, en- suite bathroom & a view to die for!

Had a wonderful 4 night stay at The Towers. Fantastic room with lovely views over Ilfracombe. Extremely comfortable and lovely facilities. Nothing was too much trouble and received lots of advice on local area, restaurants etc.. Breakfast was always superb and nice touch was decaffinated coffee being supplied on our complimentary room tray, after I had decaff at breakfast, without me asking. These kind of things show how much Tricia and John care about their guests. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Go for the large double at the top - very large and has fantastic views over Ilfracombe down to the...

We stayed 4 nights in this lovely Victorian guest house. Very warm and friendly welcome. Room was lovely with complimentary toiletries, lovely thick white fluffy towels.Tricia gave us lots of info for the area and John her partner cooked lovely breakfasts-- what more can you ask for.
I would advise people to book direct as you can get a good deal if staying 2 plus nights.

We recently stayed in the Towers Hotel, Ilfracombe. My sons were running in the Exmoor Marathon and we needed somewhere close by to stay for 2 nights. The Proprietor Tricia, couldnt do enough for us and one of our party were late arriving due to traffic problems, but Tricia was exceptionally accommodating and made us all very welcome. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and welcoming. The beds were extremely comfy and we all slept well. On the day of the Marathon we needed to have breakfast quite early (6.50am) in order to get to the registration for the race and Tricia was more than happy to provide us with a full English breakfast much earlier than the normal breakfast times. There were great views from my sons double room and we only wish we could have stayed longer to see more of the local area. We would certainly recommend this hotel and if my sons run in the Marathon next year (which they are planning on doing) we will certainly consider this hotel again.

Room Tip: Our rooms were all together on the same floor. My sons double room was lovely and light and had gre...
