I needed to stay in Ilfracombe for business and booked here as the reviews seemed ok. Sadly, the room I had was not nice. The bed smelled of dirty smelly hair, the television did not work properly and the en-suite shower and toilet were not much bigger than a cupboard. Everywhere had a strange smell and the en-suite facilities were... More

We came down to Ilfracombe for a friend's wedding, and had booked a double room (for myself and my husband) and a single room (for a friend) at Rainbow Ridge, because the reviews were good and it seemed like it would be within walking distance of Tunnels Beaches (it's about a mile's walk). We were not disappointed. As we were... More

Booked after reading Trip Advisor reviews this turned out to be everything it claimed to be. Comfortable, friendly and very convenient for the town in a place known for its steep hills. I travelled using the bus and my two feet. The main bus routes stop right outside; others stop just minutes' walk away in the town centre. Accommodation was... More

Just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at the Rainbow Ridge Guest House. The room was very clean, cosy and comfortable. The breakfasts were marvellous and really set you up for the day. Location is fine for the town which is a short walk away and the bus service is very good with a stop practically outside. Keith and... More

A lovely, friendly Guest House. The hosts Louise and Keith were excellent and genuine people. A superb generous breakfast. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We were ideally located for the town and public transport to other places. We hope to come to Ilfracombe again in the near future and hope to stay here again.

Fantastic stay. After a long coastal road drive heading towards South Wales from Cornwall, we decided to stay one more night in Ilfracombe and am so glad we chose this B&B. We stayed another two nights and it turned out to be the best part of our holiday! We stayed in room 5 (a superior graded four poster bedroom) for... More

Where do I start? Husband and wife team Pete and Louisa have created a lovely B&B where friendliness and attention to detail go hand in hand. Rainbow Ridge is spotlessly clean, the in-room amenities available (hair dryer, TV, tea and coffee-making facilities etc.) are spot on and the full English breakfast is marvellous. Everything about Rainbow Ridge reeks of quality... More

My wife and I decided to take a short break away and visit some friends who were staying at watermouth cove campsite. From the moment we arrived we were felt welcome. The room was absolutely lovely, very clean and tea and coffee facilities were there, which after a long drive was a welcome site. The breakfast was lovely and freshly... More

When we originally went to Ilfracombe on holiday in 1979, we always intended to return but things never work out the way you expect. We decided to return this year and really enjoyed our stay. The Rainbow Ridge Guest House is a real gem and Louise and Keith were a joy to be around, so helpful, friendly and very welcoming.... More
