“A fantastic place to stay. ”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

This was our 2nd time staying at the Harcourt Hotel and it was just as wonderful as the first. Everyone there goes to the effort of making you feel at home and the service they provide is excellent.

Parking is limited but there are loads of car parks not far from the b&b and the tourist information offer a 3 day parking pass for a small amount. This can not only be used in all Ilfracombe car parks but also in others located in nearby towns, great if you're going on days out.

We will definitely be returning to the Harcourt Hotel every time we go back to Ilfracombe and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel, its quiet, clean and comfortable. Nice view from window (Rm 5). Breakfast was variable depending on who cooked it - first morning was great, second morning not so good. Managed to squeeze into the parking space and left car there while we spent days exploring Ilfracombe on foot. The hotel is well situated between high street and harbour and close to nice pubs and eating places. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Quite steep stairs for the upper rooms, which do have nice views. WiFi OK in lounge but 'limited...

clean comfortable room, bathroom a little tired although clean and functional could do with updating. Breakfast, excellent choice, quickly and pleasantly served, although this must be ordered in advance if you require a full English. Staff friendly and helpful, the parking is a little tight if you have a medium sized car we would definitely stay there again, a perfect location for all the local amenities such as the harbour pubs and beautiful gardens surrounding the theatre.

Arrived at the hotel around 3.30pm to be met by Kirsty who could not have been more helpful. We even got a parking space for the first night and We were given a lovely room (no. 5) which was clean and uncluttered with plenty of wArdrobe and drawer space. The bathroom was clean and the shower was hot and a good flow of water (unlike some we've experienced) We had a great view out across to the sea. Cooked breakfast was superb and the hotel is well located, just a short stroll to the seafront and harbour. All in all great value and will definitely return and recommend. Penny and Chris

Room Tip: Room 5 was the triple and is spacious with a great view

We have just had a two night break at Harcourt Hotel and couldn't have wished to have stayed anywhere nicer. Jackie was so very welcoming right from the start, as were her staff throughout our stay. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable, with everything we could have wanted in it. Breakfasts were yummy and nice and hot, with plenty of choice. Only downside was the parking issue, but we realise nothing can be done about that, and it wouldn't deter us from returning. Altogether....we made a very good choice. Thanks Jackie.

As regular visitors to Ilfracombe would definately return to The Harcourt again. The hotel is in a good location, exceptionally clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent especially the fresh fruit salad. Would highy recommend The Harcourt over other hotels in Ilfracombe.
