This is the most depressing, miserable hotel I have ever stayed at in britain. It is dirty, rooms are awful, there is no feeling or warmth. Apart from a chirpy barman from michegan the staff are rude and unhelpful. The food is disgusting, you get better in a homeless shelter. This hotel is a total holiday wrecker-avoid it! Go somewhere else. Try the imperia or osbornes next door. Do not subject yourself to utter misery. It's nasty!

We have just returned from a KGB deal to the Grosvenor Hotel we stayed for two nights - the room was ok, one gripe was the shower was hand held it needs a hook on the wall to attatch it to. That said I thought it was extremely clean and decorated well for the hotel it is - an OLD VICTORIAN HOTEL . The food could have been more imaginative - and the breakfast sausages were very very cheap - and not very nice................The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful...........and I do really think that for the price we paid we had a good deal.

Thanks John and Valerie Powell 17/03/2013

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a shower

We went to this hotel on a Groupon deal and were not expecting too much as it was very cheap. The hotel is like something out of Phoenix Nights and the majority of the guests seem to be on coach trips. Staff are helpful and pleasant, the hotel was warm and breakfast satisfactory. Parking is the biggest problem as there are only 6 spaces and these seem to be taken at all times. You can only park for two hours outside the hotel so potentially you could be moving your car every couple of hours. The first room we stayed in had a leaking ceiling so this kept me awake and the second room was very small and the shower did not attach correctly. However, the room was clean and as I said before it you pay very little you really can't expect too much.

staff were very helpful; just a pity for them to have to work in this hotel. god knows how long iot had been since the carpet under the bed was cleaned and the same was true forone of the cups and one of the glasses in the room .

breakfast was ok but why bother with a menu when so much is unavailable: no kippers, no gammon, no prunes, no woman, no cry.oh no the last two are a bob marley song but you get the point. the poor waitress seemed to spend her time apologising for what were surely oversights on someone else's part; i mean, fancy not stocking up.

we got this cheap so it felt churlish to complain but don't pay full whack to stay here.

(and is letting one's dog foul the footpath obligatory in ilfracombe? haven't seen so much dog poo in years!)

Room Tip: go somewhere else!

I stayed at the Grosvenor with Just Go! Holidays in early March.
The hotel was clean and comfortable.
The owners are very friendly and accommodating.
Most of the staff are polite and helpful.
I have stayed in 3 other hotels in Ilfracombe before, in my opinion the Grosvenor is the best so far.
