Sandie and Dave were great hosts. Lovely big, airy, quiet room (room 2). Plenty of storage/rails/shelves/hooks. Four big towels provided and there was a spotlessly clean en suite. Room in the shade with a big windows so very cool, but a fan was also provided if you needed it. Ample supplies for hot drinks were replenished daily in the room,... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely guest house for a week and wish we could have stayed longer. When we arrived we got a very warm welcome from Sandie. We were in room number 1 which has a lovely four poster bed, lots of storage space and the bonus of having a sofa and tv. Everything was spotlessly... More

Nice, clean, friendly guesthouse. I felt it was good value for the price. Breakfast was fine, nice to have enough tea in the room. It was good to have car parking, and was an easy short walk, about 10 minutes, into the centre.

My parents and I visited Ilfracombe for a family wedding in Croyde nearby. Sandie and Dave made us very welcome and were only to happy to help with local information and recommendations. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfast was really tasty. It was good value for money and I would definitely recommend the Burnside Guest House to friends... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Room lovely and clean. It's exactly what you want for the price you pay. I would say it is a bargain. I paid £65 a night for a large double room. Breakfast was great. Sandie can't do enough for you. Parking outside with about a 15/20 minute walk into town.

This guest house is pretty much perfect. Lovely comfortable room, spotlessly clean, great welcome from Sandie, good breakfast, easy parking and excellent value for money. Would definitely return. It is a little way out of the town but we found taxis easily.

Stayed at this lovely guesthouse on April 23rd for 1 night. My wife and I were in town to attend a wedding at the nearby Tunnels Beaches (a must visit if you're close). We arrived at 12.15 and were greeted by Sandie, our room was ready (due to Sandie emailing us a few weeks previously asking us when we would... More

This is a very comfortable place to stay. Parking is easy and it's not too far to walk into town to eat. Dave and Sandie are very friendly and were happy to recommend places to go. The breakfasts were delicious. The room was great; it was nice to have a sofa to sit on and watch TV. We would stay... More

Great hosts and a nice breakfast. Rooms clean and comfortable with the added bonus of off street parking and decent free wifi. Tea and Coffee facilities free in room. Recommended for business or pleasure with or without the kids.. would definitely consider staying again on our next visit to "sunny" Devon.
