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

Just returned from a short break to Ilfracombe and stayed at the Bath House, from the outside it is off putting the back and the front entrance are tired, which is such a shame with a little TLC it could be improved. Inside it is clean and tidy, but still needs work. After all this do not be put off... More

We stopped here for one night and have never stopped anywhere quite like it before. The room was just a dirty mess including the carpets, windows, stained walls and waste still in the toilet on arrival, not to mention a dirty pair of socks that we found stuffed down the side of one of the beds! The furniture was so... More

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

Reception is manned from 07.00 in the morning until at least 10.30 at night. Therefore to say there were never any staff around is total nonsense. Therefore, I can only imagine the rest of your review is nonsense too. I refer you to all the other reviews around. We welcome constructive criticism not blatant balderdash. More

We arrived on the 3rd and like most of the other reviews were a little apprehensive due to the outside of the hotel! This was completely turned around as soon as we stepped foot inside though. The staff were all lovely and room staff exceptional even going so far to rearrange petals I had left in the room to spell... More
