Fantastic 3 night stay 11 - 14 Sep, our hosts Karen and Russ made us feel very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and our room was top class with a beautiful view of the sea (Room 11) The breakfast is one of the best tasted and is cooked fresh to order (thank you Russ) Will defiantly return again and would recommend the Marine Court to our family and friends.

An excellent hotel, very well maintained and run. The welcome is warm and personal and breakfast cannot be faulted. I particularly liked the light, spacious breakfast room with a small bar at the rear. My room was fine (although, clumsy as I am, I find these bijou washbasins a bit awkward!) and hotel location, only a few minutes walk from the harbour, very convenient. Good value for money as well.

Room Tip: A room at the back, away from the road, might be preferable although the road is not particularly bu...

Stayed with Karen & Russ 9-11 Sept for the third time this year. Glad to say that our last stay was every bit as good as the first. Hotel is superb, spotlessly clean throughout. Stayed in room 8 again which has that little extra touch of a coffee machine and separate living room. All staff are lovely too. Met Peela in town she recognised us and stopped for a chat. Judith is delightful too. Enjoyed a nightcap with Karen and Russ in their lovely well stocked and reasonably priced bar. Nice to relax and have a lovely chat with two of the nicest people you will ever meet. Fantastic breakfast cooked to perfection by Russ from the build your own menu. Really gets you off to a great start whatever your plans. The town and lovely harbour just a short walk away, great little pub just opposite should you want to stay nearby. Perfect hotel, perfect location run by two fantastic people.
Looking forward to next year and another visit to lovely Ilfracombe.

All the reviews have it spot on. Its clean, Russ and Karen welcome you with open arms, and provide a top notch service. Breakfast is fantastic. Its not too far from town, and has a pub across the road for meals and drinks. A small but stocked bar is available and prices are very reasonable. They both made a fuss of the girls, and our family room was more than ample for our stay. Karen makes a point of remembering everyone's name which make your stay all the more welcoming. Great couple; great place. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. Well done both!

This was a last minute booking and we were very happy with our choice. Although quite small, our room was sunny and attractive. Karen and Russ were very welcoming hosts and breakfasts were excellent. Russ was happy for us to leave our car in the car park before we checked in so we could wander down into the town.
