Lovely couple, lovely B&B I'll definitely book here again. I've known Dave and Sandie for years and they always aim to please. Off road parking is a bonus. I had a large airy room that was well appointed. Just a cracking place to stay.

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.

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
