Cannot recommend Gabriel House highly enough. Tricia and John were friendly and very knowledgeable and had some great suggestions for restaurants. Unfortunately we only stayed one night but intend returning.

Took a cheap and cheerful trip to Ilfracombe with my mom to complete some wedding planning before my big day and found this hotel hotel in an excellent deal online. Chose this hotel due to the sea view from our twin room that I knew my mom would love. Our room was very small but furnished to a high standard... More

Really enjoyed our 2 days stay. Hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast was to die for. Would highly recommend. Was very peaceful but at the same time very convenient for all the amenities Ilfracombe has to offer. Excellent place to stay if you are going to a wedding at Tunnel Beaches

Gabriel house and its friendly hosts have it all! It's clean, stylish, comfy. Stunning breakfast. Lots of delicious choices! We really enjoyed our stay. I spent my stay in bed as i had tonsillitis! Im certain it aided my recovery! One of the best bed and breakfasts we've been to. Can't wait to return! X

I stayed here in March 2014 and what a lovely place. It was a great room in an excellent location with easy access to the town centre and walks. With a lovely and very well cooked breakfast and kind informative hosts I would stay here again. The only reason I don't give this an excellent is that the hot water... More

I would recommend this bed & breakfast to anyone visiting Illfracombe, ideally located with a nice coastal view, off street parking and beautifully furnished rooms. The bed was extremely comfortable and warm, although the only negative is the shower as lacking in power. The breakfast freshly cooked to order and very substantial. We were made to feel warm and welcome... More

Beautiful location and wonderful sea view from front room. Small number of rooms but felt at ease staying here. Fantastic breakfast. Tricia and John were lovely from the moment they greeted us until we left. Parking onsite a real Bonus

Me and the missus have just return from our short weekend relaxing break to recharge our batteries. When we arrived at Gabriel House we were given a warm welcome by the owner Trisha and taken to our room "The 4 Poster". This personal touch goes a long way to make a standard break into a special one. The room was... More

Gabriel House is just lovely...the owners are relaxed and friendly and Tricia couldn't be more delightful. The room we stayed in overlooked the sea and was wonderful. Breakfast was delicious...in fact our one night stay in July was so lovely, we've booked four nights in August!!!
