David and Sandie were the perfect hosts and their home was a wonderful place to stay during a holiday to explore North Devon. The room was a great size, offering very comfy beds, blackout curtains, fresh water/tea/coffee facilities with biscuits and a great power shower. Breakfasts (with both hot and cold options) were made to order and were perfectly turned... More

We stayed here with friends in May 2014 and have nothing but praise for this lovely guest house. The rooms are extremely clean and the breakfast nice and well presented. A short stroll to the shops / pubs / restaurants. Would recommend this guest house for a stay in Ilfracombe.

We stayed fir two nights at this charming guest house. The room we booked had everything you could want including a king-size bed that was very comfortable. The nice extra touches included shampoos in the bathroom and face flannels adding to the overall impression. Breakfast was a delight, well cooked by Dave and served by Sandie, clearly nothing was too... More

This was our second visit to The Burnside Guest House. We stayed again in the four poster room at the front which was extremely comfortable. All the little touches in the room were noted, including the quality of the furniture and decor. Dave and Sandy are both very welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. A...

Stayed for three nights on a business trip to Ilfracombe. This is a small guest house with only three rooms and it has a friendly welcoming atmosphere with personal service from the owners who will do all they can to make your stay an enjoyable one. There's ample free parking, free wifi and a nice cooked English breakfast for those... More

We stayed for a fleeting visit of a single night. Easy to find and parking was no issue. We were welcomed by Sandie who was extremely pleasant. Our room was extremely clean. The bed although small was comfy enough, we both slept quite well. We enjoyed breakfast and feel our stay was good value for money.

Run by a very friendly couple who can not do enough to help. Easy to find and park, slightly out of town centre although easily walkable. Spotlessly clean and a good breakfast. Rooms appear to be freshly updated for this season and an ideal platform to explore the local area.

We booked 3 nights at Burnside to attend a friend's wedding at the Tunnel beaches. Right from making the booking via email last year to checking out we could not fault Dave & Sandie. The room was clean, bright and spacious. The location is a ten minute walk from the Tunnels, or a 2 minute taxi ride at under £3.00... More

Stayed here for one night with my husband, room was superb. Very well located, walk to Ilfracombe high street, very near. The owners excel at making you feel at home, they know all the great spots to visit around the area too. Breakfast was brilliant, lots of choice/variety. All freshly cooked, fruit, cereals, coffee...you name it! Will definitely come again... More
