Two of us stayed at Dylan's for two nights, and would definitely recommend it. Glenn is a friendly host, who coped with us being almost three hours late, and the rooms are spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was also good. We managed to park right outside.

My partner and I had a fantastic three day stay at Dylan's.The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast choice was fantastic and I loved the ramekins eggs. Without doubt though the best part of the stay was the host, Glenn. From the minute we arrived to the second that we left he was warm and welcoming, helpful and... More

Just returned from our 6th year staying at Dylans Guest House . Why do we keep going back? Well that’s an easy one to answer….. the guest house definitely deserves its number 1 rating. The rooms are spotlessly clean, nicely furnished and have lovely comfortable beds. The house is light and airy with a very relaxed atmosphere which is very... More

After arriving late in Crooklets I wandered along Downs View and found Glenn enjoying a beautiful summer's evening sat outside when I approached looking for a room for two for the night. The room we had was beautiful, clean and had lovely views and we were made to feel very welcome. There was a great choice for breakfast and we... More

This was our second visit to Dylan's Guest House and we were (again) not disappointed. The room was spacious, very clean and the en-suite was very stylish. Yet again, Glenn and co made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was superb. Hopefully we'll be back in a couple of weeks’ time, depending on the weather. If not, we'll definitely... More

This was our 3rd visit in as many years. As usual Glenn was the perfect host, with perfect breakfasts - thanks to Sharon too! We had the beautiful front bedroom at the top of the house with gorgeous views over the downs down to the sea. Spotlessly clean as usual! The weather could have been better but I guess we... More

Third year in a row visiting Bude and absolutely no thought of looking any further for accommodation than Dylan's. Golf course view rooms are large and the whole house is stylish and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are delicious and Glenn's chat always entertaining. Of course, the warm welcome from Gary the dog is priceless. 😘 Location is great, being a short... More

Glenn and team gave us a lovely welcome during our stay, though not sure we had to book a breakfast slot on our first morning when we were the only people in the place. The previous B and B we had stayed in had been especially caring about my vegan preferences and this would have been helpful but we understand... More

Some hotels / guest houses the place, furnishings, etc make them, and in some the owners and their staff make them... At Dylan's its that rarest combination of both. Clean modern comfortable, practical and a great breakfast make it score top marks on the 'hardware' and that's brilliantly complemented by Glenn, Sarah, Sharon and Gary 'the dog's' warm welcome, genuine...

Glenn, Sharon & Sarah make this clean, comfortable and perfectly situated guest house a pure pleasure to stay - and Gary the dog is the icing on the cake! Breakfast is always fresh, hot and beautifully done and Sharon can always point you in the right direction of a nice place to eat in the evenings. Holidaying in Bude? You... More
