my partner and I stayed in the double with a the gorgeous sea view. Car park very steep to get in and out of so make sure you take care. On arrival there was no one there to greet us so had to phone the mobile number from the email. The gentleman was upstairs so was down within 1 minute... More

We booked the twin room for 2 nights and were unable to get in when we arrived.. We rang the doorbell repeatedly and also went to the other door up some steps. There was no sign left for us or of the owners. I rang and was told that an email had been sent to me in the morning with... More

An amazing short stay. The owners could'nt do enough for us, the room was spotless with a lovely view of the sea .. and the Breakfast was to die for. The location is close to the harbour which is also a lovely place to visitr. Will definately be going back.

Brilliantly located for all amenities, the penthouse Oriel Apartment at the top of Gabriel House was everything we wanted for a 6 day break and more. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking homemade meals in the kitchen and eating at the open plan dining room but also ate out in Ilfracombe, Braunton and Barnstaple. There were more steps... More

A very comfortable stay in a pretty room. Décor and fittings throughout are very attractive. We received a warm welcome and there was a very relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent with a good range and choice; the coffee was particularly good.

Excellent, friendly, welcoming, warm, clean, beautifully decorated, great parking, great location. Tricia was so lovely & helpful nothing was too much trouble and help with anything & everything was offered without even asking. But by no way intrusive. We booked our evening meal in a restaurant Trica recommended & it too was superb. I would return in a heart beat.... More

We chose Gabriel house as it's location was central to Ilfracombe with it's own off road parking and views of the coastline, the house was tastefully decorated with our room being both stylish and modern. We had the garden room with the 4 poster bed, the bed felt soft, but we slept better in this bed than in our own... More

Confirming our booking, Tricia sent us a very detailed email explaining everything we needed to know about the area, a nice touch. Great breakfast, lots of it. Lovely hosts. The bed was a bit too soft but the room was otherwise very nice.
