I am not an experienced visitor of Hotels, but I have spent 3 nights in this wonderful friendly hotel. Bedroom very clean (which is a must for me). Staff couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable, and helped with questions about the local area. Food excellent and plenty of it. Would recommend it definitely, and I hope to return... More

Warm and with friendly staff, this is very much a budget hotel. The people running it work very long hours but get to know you quite well, as they are on reception all day, as well as running the bar at night. The bar stayed open very late which was great for us as we were working during the evening.... More

I organised a weekend for 30 ramblers using the hotel as a base. We were surprised how welcoming and clean the hotel is. Food was excellent. Nothing too much trouble for the staff, including various dietary requirements. The hotel represents excellent value for money and very friendly service.

Always a nice welcome and help from the staff. Checkin easy and no drama. It's not a business hotel so don't expect those amenities but there is wifi in reception area. When travelling I can stay at any hotel at any price but still return here for my visits to family in Ilfracombe. Good location. Good old fashioned service and... More
