Little apprehensive on arrival on Monday 23 June 2014 as its a steep slope from Ilfracombe Harbour to The Towers. However it really is only a 15-minute walk down to the Harbour, and after you've done the walk back up once its not as bad the following times. We were in room 7 which has views across the Harbour. We... More

We had wonderful views of the sunset over the harbour from room 10 which was very comfortable. We enjoyed the great choice at breakfast of cerials, grapefruit, fresh fruit salad, prunes with the full English breakfast very well cooked to order. Trish was very welcoming and helpful and made us feel very at home. She gave us lots of useful... More

The Towers is the most beautifully kept guest house we have had the pleasure of staying in. It is always a pleasure to stay here as it is warm & friendly & most of all immaculately kept. I will always recommend The Towers of Ilfracombe again & again because once you've stayed here you'll come back again & again &... More

We have just returned from a short stay at the Towers. I first stayed here in 2011 and was very much looking forward to returning. Needless to say we were not disappointed. Trish and John put a lot of effort into making your stay one to remember. Great hospitality, excellent breakfast, lovely rooms of which some have stunning sea views... More

Last night in "The Towers" before we return home. Sitting in room 2 looking out over Ilfracombe and its harbour. Stunning is the only word to describe what you see. Older property but well maintained. Owners very friendly and most helpful. Even bought in yoghurt when requested. Ample breakfast with wide choice and lots of fresh fruit salads. Food quality...

I can only reiterate what all the previous reviews have stated. The rooms are clean, spacious with good views of mainly the sea and/or Harbour. The breakfast is cooked to order (which is placed the previous evening) also available at breakfast are cereals, fresh fruit and fruit juice. The coffee if so required is served in a Cafetiere, which I... More

The Hotel is a lovely old building but the rooms have been lovingly brought into the 21st century with brand new bathrooms, tvs and wifi throughout. The beds were comfy, the rooms were well laid out and although we did not have a sea view, we did have a view over the garden with a mini orchard. The hostess was... More

We had the room with the view, room 2. Spacious room and a marvellous bathroom in the tower. It's a very friendly, welcoming guest house offering an excellent breakfast. There is a choice of cooked dishes each morning which you order the night before so that it's freshly cooked for you. When we arrived, end of July, it was very... More
