Lovely B & B , spotless, lovely character home, great lounge and games room, ensuites large, lovely hosts and awesome breakfast with everything available. Hosts could not do enough for you, close to the town and harbour, but far enough away to not have noise, lovely views, great for all types of visitors

We stayed here for three nights at the end of July and were very impressed. We were met on arrival by Rod, who made us feel right at home, even extending a warm welcome to members of our party who weren't even staying there. The place is very well maintained, the rooms spotlessly clean, the breakfast lovely, the lounge is... More

Positioned on a hill, overlooking the harbour, Varley House is a good B&B. A friendly and knowledgeable host provided a cheery welcome. We stayed in a lovely en-suite room with a superb view. A filling breakfast was provided - cooked to order - as well as cereal etc. We would definitely stay there again. Wifi reception was hit and miss.

We spent one night at the Varley House and we sure would recommend it further. We enjoyed our short stay and the owners are very nice and welcoming. They also offer great breakfast. From the Varley House, you can easily walk to the harbour and the town center (approx. 15 minutes).

A small, family-owned hotel, with private parking, in a quiet suburban location overlooking the Bristol Channel. About 15 minutes walk to the harbour area. I've been a regular guest here for several years and, as long as Rod & Helen remain the owners, I shall return. Airy rooms with well-appointed en-suite bathrooms incl. "power" showers. All spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast... More

We recently stayed at Varley House for one night whilst on a motorbike tour of Devon & Cornwall. Rod, the owner was very helpful, providing us with parking for our bike,a quick route to the harbour & a good suggested route fr our onward journey. Room & breakfast both very good & Ilfracombe was a lovely place to visit.

Rod and Helen were so helpful when we stayed before and after our son's wedding on Lundy. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast excellent. They contributed to what was a memorable week. Thanks.

It was nice to meet you all prior to your wedding on Lundy Island, then to meet the 4 of you on your return and the 3 nights you spent with us as you came down on a high from your sons wedding. Also the weather helped to make this short stay with us really good, and glad we could... More

Stayed for one night at Varley House. Spotlessly clean accommodation with nice bedroom and large modern bathroom. Breakfast was lovely and arrived quickly. View from our room was very good with a great sunset thrown in for good measure. Will probably make a return trip soon. 10 minute walk up the hill but a small "train" runs during the day... More

Warm welcome, excellent comfort, quiet, sea view and fine breakfast: to be utterly recommended. One of the best hotels during our 3-week family tour of England and Scotland. I would certainly return there.

We came down to see the Eagles tribute band play in Ilfracombe but the stay at Varley House was the icing on the cake. Clean Friendly Welcoming and so enjoyable that we booked another stay there ... I think that says it all. Best Breakfast in the County

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Varley House was built at the turn of the 20th Century for Officers recuperating from the Boer War. Hence we have grand rooms with high ceilings which make your stay even more pleasant than you expected. We have a spacious lounge where you can sit and chat, play games, or just read whilst enjoying a drink purchased from our bar.This is a nice quiet establishment ideally suited for the coastal path for walkers, opposite Hillsborough Nature reserve, and a good stopping point for those wanting to travel to Lundy island. Also all of our rooms have a stunning view of our local scenery. ... more   less
