Have stayed in better 2* accommodation than the Sherbourne Lodge. The atmosphere was musty and reflected the age of the property. Rooms that had been vacated were not cleaned or made ready for the next occupier for days due to lack of staff. This was reflected in the price of accommodation. The owners temperament was very volatile and was always... More

Thank you for spending time reviewing your stay at our accommodation. I am so glad you enjoyed your breakfasts. You are quite right that we were short of staff at the time of your stay. As you were well aware, my husband had been rushed to hospital at the weekend and only arrived home on the day of your arrival.... More

We turned up early for our two night stay, no big issue, the owners were out but phoned them and they said they'd be back in 10 mins. Nice to have somewhere with parking. We were shown to our room which was nice, clean and airy. Breakfast on the Sunday we asked for at 7am and was accomodated for with... More

Thank you for your pleasant review of our accommodation. I enjoyed your stay with us and the chats over breakfast about road running bought back some great memories. Look forward to seeing you next year. More

1 Nights stay 27 June 2015. We turned up at 1.50pm to be greeted by the owner stating we had in fact booked to arrive at 2pm, I thought it was good manners to arrive early, not much too early.. We were showed to our room at 2pm, told when breakfast the following day was. The room.......The walls had a... More

Thank you for spending time reviewing our accommodation, but I am most confused at your comments. Firstly, it makes it quite clear on booking that our earliest check-in is at 2pm. When you arrived I will still rushing round to try to get ready, had just returned from shopping etc. so explained this to you. We took you up to... More

Fantastic food at breakfasts, tired decor, could have been cleaner. Helpful advice from hosts about places to eat but their behaviour was erratic and not always friendly, and they were often not around when people were arriving, leaving a note on the door for people to call them on arrival. we also witnessed them arguing, which was not conducive to...

Visited the Sherbourne lodge on an educational trip in March 2014. It's hard to know where to start, looking past the outdated decor which is in serious need of a revamp there was just a host of problems. The most annoying of which was probably the fact the maid decided to remove our wet towels from the rail each morning... More

Went for a weeks holiday with our 11 month old Springer and had a fantastic time. The hotel was just what we needed - 2 rooms both en-suite and a fantastic breakfast to start the day. On arrival we were shown round by Graham and he offered to set up a breakfast table in the Bar area so our young... More

Stayed here with a couple of friends as part of the Devon Coast to Coast bike ride. The hosts were great, the food is terrific and plentiful, and nothing is too much trouble. Secure bike lock up and a good location will have me coming back next year.

Have just returned from a great weekend in Ilfracombe and relaxing stay at The Sherborne Lodge. We are a family of five and it's not always easy to get the right accommodation but we were well served with Graham and Alison. We shared family rooms, two bedrooms with ensuite, we had a wonderful breakfast every morning and were made to... More

We were delighted with our short stay at this B&B this week. Alison and Graham are gracious hosts who think of everything, including maps of the town showing the gradients on the various walks into town, a great advantage in a hilly place like Ilfracombe, but are always looking to improve their already excellent service. When the vegetarian sausages weren't... More

Had a wonderful 3 nights at the Sherborne Lodge. Ideally situated within a short walking distance from the heart of Ilfracombe, enabling you to leave the car parked safely in the car park when wining and dining in Ilfracombes restaurants or heading to the beach for the day. If your expecting the Ritz then this isn't the place for you... More
