I think this must have been my 8th trip and tried staying different places each time. I must say that staff were friendly but the room I had was the most tired looking ever. A little modernising of the reception area and the breakfast area would make a world of difference. If the owner is trying to keep it character... More

There are simply too many points to raise in this paragraph to say why I or any of the other 32 guests that stayed at the guest house this weekend will never visit again or recommend it to anyone! Basically Malcolm the owner is a very rude & unprofessional hotel owner & really hasn't got a clue about creating a... More

MalcolmtheOwner, Owner at The Bath House Hotel, responded to this review

As the owner who has been lambasted here, which I thought was against tripadvisor rules, I feel the need to respond to this review. This review has come about because I closed the bar at 12.30 at night. I was very professional and never rude about the way I attempted to close the bar. However, the group, of which only... More

Generally outside of hotel does look a bit grubby but all buildings in this area look like this due to sea salt in atmosphere /rain and also seagulls don't help! Staff are lovely and really helpful. Rooms are fine and clean (bathroom could have done with a little more cleaning) but generally to a good standard, I would say similar... More

We went to Ilfracombe for a wedding and stayed at the Bath House hotel for 3 nights. The outside looks tired and needs some TLC, however there is scaffolding up at the moment, so they may be doing something, but we didn't ask. A very nice welcome and the staff are great. The bedrooms have had money spent on them... More

We found the Bath House Hotel completely by accident whilst searching for very last min accommodation in ilfracombe. The visit was very sadly to attend a funeral and so I booked the room without even looking at reviews or facilities - I was simply being glad to have found somewhere to stay at this busy time of year. However, when... More

We stayed at the Bath house hotel for 3 nights and had a great time! Before we reached the hotel, just after the booking, I contacted the hotel to inform them of some special requirements we had for our 1 year old Son. These included having a room with a Cot bed and also a bath. We received a lovely... More
