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

I booked 2 nights here to stay during Somersault festival which was half an hour's drive away. The surrounding area is nice and I spent 2 days in the sunshine sat by the sea. I checked in 3pm and was in room number 9 - a single room with a shower/toilet ensuite but the sink in the bedroom area. Bed... More

Came to Ilfracombe for 3 nights and found the Rainbow Ridge to be a great place to rest at night. Price was very reasonable considering the quality of the rooms and we were treated to a wonderful homemade breakfast. The hosts were lovely and helpful - we would chat with them for a little bit each morning after breakfast. A... More

Yes, our room was a little dated and the shower was rather poor but overall it was quite clean and the bed linen was superb. Also the breakfast was very well cooked, sausage mushrooms, tomato, egg, baked beans and two rashers for the full English and it wasn't swimming in fat. One thing that was odd was that we had...

We were very impressed with this B and B. Nothing seemed like too much trouble and we got the feeling that the owners had put a lot of thought into the little details. Food was good with a full veggie breakfast option. We upgraded to the four poster room which was somewhere in the region of £60 - we thought... More

Super friendly hosts, comfortable rooms, great location (with parking) and the best full English (vegetarian for us) we've had in a long time. Can't see any reason to look elsewhere. Recommended for families, couples, business visits, everyone really, so welcoming.

So glad we did the. Our room was Number 5, it had a Four Poster Bed... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August, the B&B is 10 mins walk from the town and harbour. We had room 10 and 12 at the top. The owners came and sat with us at breakfast and were very friendly. Food was excellent. A nice little place to stay in town. Only downside was the creaky bed and slow... More
