Stayed in the Score Valley Hotel for one night to catch up with friends. The hotel was very comfortable and the service was really good. Set in lovely scenery and in a very quiet area, also within walking distance of Ilfracombe itself. Will definitely return for another stay.

This lovely country house is run by husband and wife team. It is comfortable and spacious. Everything you could wish for in a getaway from it all holiday. The gardens are secluded and you are oblivious to the outside world. The bedroom has a small fridge which you can fill with your own things. But there are a couple of... More

We have been to score valley twice because the owners made us feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble and they are very genuine. We have been in other hotels and was always glad to go home but felt so relaxed at Score Valley. And where the hotel is you have trees and nature all around you. We will... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in the summer and had a fantastic stay, the location is peaceful and the setting is stunning. We had a room on the top floor which was spacious, the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The only complaint about the room would be the shower - we... More

This was our first stay at Score Valley, but would certainly return when in the area again. Roger and Jenny made us feel very welcome, and were very accommodating as to the needs of our dogs food being kept chilled, as this is often a problem in some hotels. Our room was quiet spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast menu... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. We believe Score Valley lends itself perfectly to dog owners with plenty of pleasant walks in the immediate area so we are pleased to take small to medium dogs. Having said that we are very much aware that not everybody appreciates dogs in a room so we only take a dog in... More

Our stay at Score Valley was restful and relaxed. I came with my two boys and Dashund and was welcomed with open arms. The house is old and beautiful (but then then I like old things) and I appreciated being able to choose from a vast menu for breakfast the night before. Cabs back in the evening seem few and...

We returned to stay at Score Valley Country House Hotel and received a lovely welcome. Our room was comfortable and had everything we needed.

This privately owned family hotel is nestled deep in little valley just off the main road to Illfracombe. It is quaint and a little old fashioned but that is its charm. The 8 or so rooms have tea making facilities and complimentary wash gels. The bedrooms are a little dated but very clean. The main house has a breakfast room... More

Thank you for your kind review. I am hoping I have interpreted it correctly as a compliment. Recognising that this is probably one of the oldest properties in Ilfracombe being operated as a guest house we have tried to decorate it sympathetically, retain as many period features as possible and provide modern amenities. Indeed several of our rooms are up... More

We found the hotel easily as it is nestling in a quiet valley. Our hosts were very nice and nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was lovely and no problem to pre-order from a list of requirements. It's about 25 mins to walk down into Ilfracombe but it's also a good idea to catch... More
