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

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
