Have now stayed at Varley House twice and would highly recommend it. Clean, comfortable rooms, welcoming tea and coffee on arrival. Easy walk into Ilfracombe and close to lovely walks including the coastal path. Dog made very welcome. Beds very comfortable, very quiet area and lovely breakfast.

Varley House was an excellent choice for our 3 day trip to Ilfracombe. Rod and Helen are so accommodating and had done everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. I travelled with two colleagues and we shared a triple room. The beds are extremely comfortable, complete with chocolates on the pillow. The inclusion of hot chocolate, as well... More

This was a last minute booking for NYE. Great find, it was perfect for our stay. Our room had a fantastic view, very clean and comfortable. We stayed with our 2 year old son who was made most welcome. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Home from home with a delicious breakfast. Thanks.

After severe storm warnings issued for the south we rang first to ask about available safe parking (we were in a rental car). On arrival Rod could not have been more considerate, assisted with our bags, and because of our worries about the storms predicted to hit that night, gave us the quietest room available so as to ensure a...

Decided to have a break at the end of Sept. after been given a leaflet from a friend advertising a coach break based in Ilfracombe, so we ran a check on the accommodation offered, which seemed to reflect a previous experience with this tour company. We then decided to go it alone and checked out alternative hotels and eventually decided... More

I stayed here for one night as a starting point for the Devon C2C bike ride. It is in a good location close to the town centre, about 10 minutes walk to the harbour and pubs.
