The bedroom was really quaint and cosy with a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath (LOVED!) a toilet, a little sofa area with a TV and plenty of tea and coffee. We attended a family party nearby and thought we would make the most of being child... More

Have stayed at the Brit several times over the years and witnessed many changes all to the good! A sea view room is a must. Very comfortable and relaxing. Staff friendly and polite. Would recommend hotel to anyone.

We have loved Ilfracombe for years but our stay was a real disappointment. Our room was really quite shabby, the staff were unfriendly to the point of totally ignoring us. Apart form the guy who cleared our breakfast table. At £100 per night and having to pay for everything in advance Im glad our stay was for only one night.
