I've stayed here several times, and it's got a kind of 'home away from home' atmosphere, which is cemented by the wonderful hosts Zoe & Matt. You'll get caught up in the snug bar while planning you're next blustery amble across cliff and field before returning to the Elmfield or other wonderful local eateries for a hearty meal.

We also just got back from a 3 night Easter stay. We were made to feel extremely welcome and relaxed by Zoe after long journey from London. Hotel and rooms were immaculate. Breakfasts were awesome! Would highly recommend staying here as great point to explore Ilfracombe and surrounding area - again thanks to Zoe's local knowledge.

Just got back from a 3 night Easter break, upon arrival we were welcomed by Zoë and shown up to our room which was a good size with en suite and very clean. Over the bank holiday we enjoyed the facilities of the Elmfield, like the use of the lovely warm swimming pool complete with towels, local knowledge of eateries,... More

We stayed two nights over Easter for a wedding and had a very comfortble stay. We were going to leave very early before breakfast, to speed up our travel, but could not resist waiting for breakfast. It is so good. Fresh fruit, fresh juice (not out of a can), hot berries for the yoghurt as well as full English breakfast... More

We booked out this hotel and our host, Zoe, could not have done more to make our time here, and that of our guests, nothing short of fantastic. Great al la carte breakfast, brilliant swimming pool, SOOOOOO much space to relax. Thank you, you helped make our wedding. X

Amazing service and very personal. We had the whole hotel booked for my brothers wedding. They were very accommodating to all our needs, nothing seemed too much trouble. The downstairs lounge/bar/childrens/dining area really was brilliant and safe to leave the children in, if we were in the room briefly. Would have no problem in recommending this hotel.

We loved visiting Ilfracombe and it was made truly special by staying at The Elmfield. Our room was beautiful and spacious with an amazing view. Our hosts, Zoe, Matt and their two lovely boys made us feel so at home. We enjoyed some homemade sloe gin upon arrival and a huge feast too! We went on a big coastal walk... More

We went to The Elmfield for two nights and loved it so much we ended up staying for three. We found it great value for money, with gorgeous rooms, excellent breakfast and lots of little extras (a drink on arrival, DVD's to borrow, an honesty bar etc...) Matt and Zoe were warm and welcoming and we felt really looked after.... More
