“Great location, great house, great hospitality.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013 via mobile

Norbury House is perfect for visiting Ilfracombe, and especially so for the coast path and the beautiful beaches at Lee and beyond. A beautiful stretch of the coast path is just out the back door!

As with most of the other reviewers here, I have to tip my hat to the excellent and friendly service provided by Adam and Paula. And yes, Bovril the black lab makes a great host too - the calmest, friendliest dog in Devon, surely.

Oh, and the breakfasts are brilliant too. Great ingredients, locally sourced.

Definitely recommended.

We booked this property after reading reviews and we were not disappointed at all. A really warm welcome from Paula and Adam with a tray of tea and biscuits, they offered restaurant suggestions, made reservations for us and recommended places to visit whilst listening to what we wanted from our weekend. Fantastic breakfast, small but adequate continental selection, choice of delicious hot items and coffee and toast to absolutely die for!
They really make you feel so welcome and have created a very special place with a lovely relaxed atmosphere and you genuinely feel that they want you to have the best time possible whilst staying with them. Short walk into town and lovely sea views. We had room 3 and liked it very much. Free wifi a real bonus, DVDs available for you to borrow. Tea/coffee and biscuits in the room....waffle bathrobe a lovely touch as is the complimentay mineral water in your room. A real gem and exactly how a little high quality B&B should be! We really felt like it was a "home away from home" and that nothing would be too much trouble for them. Book soon!

Room Tip: We had room 3 with a seaview

Warm welcome with tray of tea and coffee. Lovely room, warm, tastefully decorated. Great attention to detail and superb breakfast! Adam and his mum were super hosts and made us very welcome. Well situated, great views with short walk into town.

Really wonderful hotel stay, made even enjoyable and relaxling by the hotel's owner Adam. Norbury House is a home from home, a relaxed, comfortable vibe that pervades every room. The decor has a lovely boutique feel, with lots of interesting retro pieces and objects dotted around the house. We didn't have a huge amount of time to explore Ilfracombe as we were here to work, but Adam gave us a great insight into what there is to see and do. We hope to come back again soon!

We stayed at Norbury House in September 2012 as part of a wedding party, our stay was fantastic! Norbury House definitely added to the overall experience of our time in Devon.

Adam and Paula truly have made a home from home and made us and the whole wedding part feel welcome and relaxed. The atmosphere at Norbury House is exactly what we look for in a B&B and the addition of Bovril the lovely labrador really made for a warm and relaxing stay.

Our room was excellent, fantastic bed and modern decor, we had a TV in our room for the morning after the wedding when we didn't feel like venturing far and the shower was great. Breakfast was delicious with a great selection.

Adam and Paula (and Bovril) really did make our stay in Devon fantastic and we would return in a heartbeat!

We went to Norbury House for three nights in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Each day we walked for between 2 and 4 hours, exploring neighboring towns and the beautiful moors. One day we took Bovril, the guest house owners' dog, with us (He is a friendly black labrador). We had breakfast in the hotel which consisted of very fresh fruit, delicious yogurt and a variety of cooked breakfasts. The town is small and interesting, one or two days in Ilfracombe is probably enough. We went to a gourmet pizza place called Relish and an Italian (which I don't remember the name of). Both were excellent. There are numerous nearby neighboring towns which all deserve a visit.
The area is beautiful, peaceful and interesting and a most welcome change from our usual UK visit to London.

Room Tip: The website gives a very clear and honest account of each room. The hotel is a beautiful grand old h...

After a hard days walking on the south-west coast path we were greeted by Adam with a wonderful refreshing cup of tea. The breakfast was great with plenty of choice and Adam was the perfect host - we all thouroughly enjoyed our stay.
