This hotel is actually much better than it looks initially. Not too keen on the decor and furnishings etc, but very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast.

My family & I stayed for 2 weeks at The Crescent House Hotel, Also my brother & sisters family, so in total 6 adults & 3 young children. We all had a fab holiday. The hotel is family run by the very wonderful Liam & Sylvia McGonigle. They can not do enough for you, they go above & beyond what you would normally expect. The location of the hotel is very central to everything. We stayed at the top of the hotel in a family room with the most wonderful ever changing sea view. The rooms are of a very high standard, beautiful furniture & luxurious bedding, brand new carpets & a wonderfully big bathroom with separate bath/shower & they are cleaned every day !! The breakfasts are amazing & having 3 small children with us all with different likes/dislikes their was something for everyone from delicious fresh fruit/pastries/cereals/yogurts to a full English buffet. Liam would come over every morning & ask us how we were & have the best advice on where to eat, what to visit & just general chit-chat. Some people on here have said the parking is an issue but as I said we stayed for 2 weeks & most nights we could get parked outside the front of the hotel or in the hotel car park. I really can not say enough nice things about this hotel & the proprietors we are already thinking about our next visit !!

Thank you so much for everything.
From Sarah, Ben & Finley (Joke of the day) Tavendale.
Hopefully be back soon xxx

We just returned from an enjoyable 4 night stay at Crescent House Hotel. Comfortable, spotlessly clean rooms (family room comprising of one double room, one twin room & a bathroom behind one door). Fantastic breakfast each morning which set us all up for the whole day of exploring Ilfracombe and the surrounding area. Crescent House is situated right in the heart of the town, just a short walk to the harbour, the tunnels beaches, the seafront and the shops. Parking wasn't the big issue we had anticipated, there are spaces outside the hotel and if they were taken there are lots of short and long stay car parks close by.
Liam and his family are great hosts, very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We will be coming back to the area again so if all the rooms haven't been snapped up we will be back to stay at this hotel. Many thanks Liam & Sylvia.

When we arrived after our long journey from Essex, we were met by a very friendly owner who went out of his way to help and advise us on the best places to visit etc.. Our room was spotlessly clean and we did not hear any noise, even though the hotel was full. The breakfast was splendid, the staff first class and overall facilities were brilliant. We will certainly go again. Greg & Jill, Coggeshall, Essex

We had a very pleasant weekend stay -- a big, light room newly refurbished with everything we needed. Good breakfast and very helpful staff. The only niggle was parking - the long stay carparks are reasonable at £3.10 per day but the others are £1 an hour, and tracking down a long-stay is not that easy (the tourist office were less than helpful). But overall we had a great time and would highly recommend the hotel

Found the hotel ,staff,food absolutely brilliant,they do have small car pack at back of hotel ,but you would have to enquire at hotel for directions to it ,and you can park in the next street to it. You can arrange with the hotel to get you a permit before your arrival.we had no problem parking .if I ever went back to ilfracombe I would go back there to stay .it was central as well.
