Harcourt Hotel
Ranked #5 of 52 Ilfracombe B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2011

Stayed in The Harcourt Hotel for a week in April. I can not recommend this hotel enough, beautiful rooms, very clean and spacious, lovely bar and terrace (with fantastic views of the sea, lovely to sit and have a cup of coffee and watch the waves) The owners are both wonderfully accommodating, very friendly and welcoming, nothing is to much trouble. Lovely breakfasts, with a brilliant choice. Hotel very close to a variety of restaurants and pubs, and a very short walk to Ilfracombe's beautiful harbor. I had a wonderful week, and have booked to come back and stay in the near future, would highly recommend (and have done) to everyone. Looking forward to my next stay.

As stated in the title this is more of a Bed & Breakfast/Guest House than a Hotel, it is a total residential place that requires a key to get into the front door and also has its rules and regulations with a 'spot fine' being given for those that fall foul of those rules. That being said I found this place to be very clean, the room and bathroom were small but functional, the breakfasts were lovely and the owner and her daughter were very friendly. It is situated within afew minutes walk from the town centre, harbour and promenade.

The Harcourt is indeed a little gem. The staff were extremely helpful and obliging yet not over the top. We booked a double and a single, the single for my dad, 89 years young and it was noticed by the owner that he would have trouble with the stairs to single. He was given a double room at no extra charge and also with no mention to us that his room had been changed for the better. The Harcourt is very clean ,very well run and affordable with excellent breakfasts ,and would recommend it to anyone.

Had a perfectly lovely stay at Harcourt with my partner and was instantly impressed and warmed by Kirsty's (the owner) wonderful reception and hospitality.
Rooms were comfortable with all you'd expect and more than you need and nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast was good also.
Location was ideal and free Wifi too.
Can't help but mention Sax the most loveable parrot I've ever stroked!
Will definitely return next time I find myself in that neck'o'the woods!

A very welcoming, family run hotel. In an ideal location for all amenities. Great view from the back balcony and the breakfast in the morning was excellent. We intend to go again next year and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
