It's always difficult to tell how good a place is from reading reviews, especially - dare I say - from Tripadvisor (unless one reads very selectively). The Elmfield, however, did seem to score well and so I booked. I have to say that I was not disappointed. It's slightly out of Ilfracombe: a good distance in order to be quiet,... More

As soon as I walked into the Elmfield and was greeted by Zoe I was relaxed. I stayed at the Elmfield this weekend with my partner, we were given the last room available which was room 7. Our room was lovely and on a clear day you can see across the tree tops to Wales. Zoe is very friendly, helpful... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with our toddler and 7 year old and we wish we had booked a week. This is our second time at the elmfield and it won't be the last. It's like a home from home but a significantly more luxurious one! Our kids loved the pool at the bottom of the garden, we had... More

We had a short break here this week and would highly recommend to everyone. Lovely friendly arrival. Were upgraded to a larger room as we were the only guests staying. Really well looked after rooms - gorgeous soaps, shampoos in he shower. Smashing breakfasts. Lovely terraced garden leading to the pool which unfortunately we didn't have time to use. Only... More

At last, a hotel with adjoining family rooms! Having to stay in the same room as a three year old is not my idea of a holiday and yet so few hotels help out with secure adjoining rooms. Not just that but Zoe, Matt and Harvey make you feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. They will sort out... More

Matt and Zoe are amazing, I cannot say enough good things about them! I have been meaning to review this gem for months, but I think I wanted to keep it for myself because I made some terrific memories there. I visited Ilfracombe in the off season. A lot was shut and the town was quiet and sleepy. Zoe went... More

We loved our two night stay at The Elmfield. Stylishly decorated, high ceilings in a well maintained historic building with a 4 poster bed! Loved the breakfast (Cereals with yum granola, different yoghurts, fresh fruit and a selection of cooked options). The coastal path is minutes away which is stunning and dramatic. We will be back for sure to stay... More
