This B+B is very family friendly, you don't feel like the children are in the way at all. The living room has a fantastic range of DVD and a large projector to watch them from. There is a lovely play room too. The rooms are very nicely decorated. I did find the service a little bit slow, and the bar... More

Made to feel very welcome at this family run B&B. The accommodation is comfortable, as befits a home fro me home. Breakfast was pleasant and facilities sufficient. Slight areas of maintenance shortfalls may detract on a longer stay, but not adversely so.

My family and I stayed at the Elmfield recently and we were looked after very well by the owners. Our rooms were clean and we had lovely views. Breakfast was great and the owners obviously work very hard to maintain a high standard. Our only disappointment was Ilfracombe itself. The high street should be avoided especially in the evening. We... More

We stayed at The Elmfield for my sisters wedding weekend, and it was brilliant. The whole place was taken over by our family, and we can be a fussy lot. Even my Dad who rarely comments on these things mentioned the surroundings. The hotel owners laid on a special private meal for us the night before the wedding, and this... More

We have never had such a warm welcome. The couple running this little place really go the extra mile. We stayed as part of a wedding party and had a lovely time, every need was met an catered for with a smile. The food was great and we enjoyed the funky bar. Would recommend.

We stayed at the Elmfield for two nights over our wedding anniversary. We chose the Elmfield on its merits as a family and baby friendly establishment, as we were travelling with our 8 month old son. From the offset I was impressed when Zoe upgraded our booking from a standard double to a deluxe double at no extra charge. Upon... More
