We stayed here for two nights in room 6, front facing overlooking the wooded hills. The room was very spacious with a very comfortable king size bed and a very clean but rather outdated ensuite shower room. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of cereals, fresh yoghurt etc. followed by a traditional fry up or smoked kippers (very tasty). The... More

I spent 6 nights at the Rainbow Ridge and it was very good value. The room was comfortable, and the breakfasts were excellent with a lot of locally sourced food of good quality and as much tea as I could drink. The owners were very friendly. They are currently looking to retire and sell up though.

Louise & Keith made sure we were very welcome at their B&B. Lovely place to stay for visiting the north of Devon. Breakfast tasted great and the hosts joined us for a cuppa to have a chat which was lovely. We loved the room but only the bathroom was a bit too small but sufficient for the 2 nights we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over the end of Whitsun week and were not disappointed, we booked the four poster room and the bed was very comfy, Keith and Louise who run the B&B are very hospitable and make you feel very welcome. The breakfast was delicious, the only small downside with the room was the shower which was... More

Stayed here for the bank holiday weekend and throughly enjoyed ourselves. The room was lovely, comfortable light and airy. The B&B was in a good quiet location but not to far from the town with all the bars and restaurants. The cooked breakfast is lovely and there is a good selection on offer also. Keith and louise the owners were... More

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
