If you're looking for luxury you won't have chosen to stay here. So on that basis, this hotel offers a great location for tunnels wedding functions at a good price, with English breakfasts included. Ask for a refurbished room and you'll enjoy your stay. Don't be put off by the tatty facade on entering the hotel (though the management really... More

We recently stayed here as we were attending a wedding at the Tunnels. You could not get a closer hotel! It is literally across the road, which was perfect for us as we were travelling with our 1 year old. The staff at up a travel cot and blanket in the room for us and kindly let us check in... More

We were cycling the Devon Coast to Coast route and wanted a reasonably priced B&B for our first nights stay in Ilfracombe, with our bikes! Martin was more than happy to accommodate our 4 bikes securely in the basement for us. We stayed in the family room which was large, comfortable and clean. The shower in the en suite bathroom...

Like a previous review, stayed here for a couple of nights as attending wedding at The Tunnels. Primarily picked this hotel for it's location - staggering distance to the wedding venue! Having had the misfortune of experiencing a dreadful B&B elsewhere in the UK, my husband and I actually did a recce last Autumn to visit and ensure it was... More

Like other reviewers we stayed because we were attending another event nearby. Location good, close to harbour and town. It is not the hotel's fault but because of proximity to harbour the noise from seagulls in the morning is deafening. Take ear plugs unless you want to be awake from dawn! Hotel needs a good spruce up and some bringing... More

Firstly, I would like to point out that this reviewer has posted reviews for 4 hotels in Ilfracombe (all on the same day by the looks of it) and has marked all of them terrible. The reviewer has also posted 53 Hotel reviews worldwide and it appears most of them are terrible. The reviewer has left 103 reviews overall of... More

Really lovely staff especially Malcolm the manager. In a great position close to the harbour and centre of town. The room we stayed in was a little dated but I believe the hotel is undergoing an upgrade. If you want opulence, not the place for you but if you want value & warmth it's spot on!

We chose this hotel as the price was good, and the location was opposite the wedding we were attending at The Tunnels Beaches. Malcolm (the owner) had already emailed me with clear descriptions of how and where to park – which we shared with other wedding guests and proved very useful. When we arrived we found parking at the back... More

We just spent two great nights in the bath house hotel. The outside of the hotel could do with a lick of paint. The room was clean. Well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, a cheerful "good morning" welcomed us into the restaurant for breakfast. Service was good and we had a hearty breakfast. A very pleasant stay.

The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel was let down by the poor quality breakfasts (cheap ingredients and not well cooked) and cleanliness (dust and dirt ) . I you need a stopover it's fine.

I note that the previous review says how clean the hotel is. It may be that we occasionally miss spots but we work very hard to ensure the hotel is clean and tidy. As for our breakfasts, this may be your opinion but here are the facts. We provide 5 cereals, all names brands such as Kelloggs. We use large... More
