“"Home from home"”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

A great place to stay thoroughly recommended. A very comfortable atmosphere and fantastic breakfast. Our room had great views of the harbour.
Sharon and Daryl very helpful always available to advise on the best places to visit.

Room Tip: If you want to get wifi best choose a low floor room. Or sitting in the lounge was never a problem...

Lovely hotel!! We stayed here for a quick get away, thus was booked fairly last minute and we were lucky to get a room!
Gorgeous views across the harbour, we had a balcony room which was gorgeous, you could see the sea and the big statue of verity from the balcony.
The couple that run this are very friendly and were chatty and helpful to us during our stay. They were able to offer us suggestions of things to do and places to eat and were even able to make us a reservation at a local tester aunt. Nothing was too much trouble!
The breakfasts were amazing!!
The only downside was the location, there is no parking available. You might be able to park on the road if your lucky, if not, the car park is chargeable and is down a steep hill, which is a big walk back up to the hotel!
If walking around the harbour it is a steep walk back up to the hotel, but the views from the hotel make it worthwhile!!
Hotel is not really appropriate for disabled people as there is no lift to the rooms.

Just back from a 4 night stay in Ilfracombe, first ever visit to the North Devon area, and I must say we loved every minute of it. As a family of 4 we found lots to do and explore, but to top the trip off our stay in the collingdale. In a super spot, a few minutes walk down to the beautiful harbour, Sharon a great host, made us all feel so welcome, always on hand to help if needed, a really clean and spotless establishment. As for the breakfast, we had cooked breakfast everyday, could not fault anything. Stopped at a lot of places over the years, up and down the country, and the collingdale is right up their at the top....

The guest house is run by a lovely couple for whom nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is spotless and the breakfasts are beautifully prepared and more importantly taste great. I would recommend the smoked haddock with poached egg as it was stunning. It was a delight to wake up and draw the curtains each morning and look out at the impressive view from our balcony. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay at Ilfracombe.

Room Tip: Take the room with a sea view superb!

This is a gem in Ilfracombe - Sharon & Daryll are great hosts and make you really welcome. Our room had fantastic harbour views, which was only a few minutes walk away, was spotless and comfortable and breakfast choice and quality was exceptional. Would highly recommend The Collingdale as your base whilst in the area, with lots of restaurants, bars and shops nearby - we'll definitely return when back in North Devon.

If looking for a place to stay in Ilfracombe then look no further, great location, superb hosts, lovely clean rooms and a cracking breakfast to help you start your day, what more can you ask for.
Very friendly, nothing is too much trouble for Sharon and Daryl and you feel very welcome staying here.

Location is great, 5 minutes walk from the harbour, uphill on the way back but nothing too bad or you can stay on the main road and be in the high street or at the tunnels in 10 minutes walk.

Would definitely recommend staying here and we will do again when back in Ilfracombe.
