The room was spacious, clean and we enjoyed a lovely sea view. There was a very large separate bathroom which featured a roll top bath (no shower... More

We stayed a night before taking the boat to Lundy. The huge room was wonderful; clean, stylish and comfortable with a lovely view out to sea. Breakfast was similarly fabulous and we had an absolutely fabulous time. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Breakfast was the best part for me which is included in the place. Best bacon i have ever tasted! Lovely surroundings but the seagulls squarking... More

We stayed here for 2 nights attending a friend's wedding in Ilfracombe. The place was a real find and I would recommend it to anyone. The place is decorated and furnished to a very high, standard, combining modern and traditional very well. We stayed in room 3 and it was very spacious with nice views down to the harbour. The...

I booked this guest house as the accommodation for a surprise vacation I had planned in order to propose to my girlfriend. Having visited North Devon previously, we did visit Ilfracombe on a previous occasion and was sure that we would love to stay in the town when we next visited. Having booked a specific room, I was slightly hesitant... More

Very welcoming. We had a brilliant view from the room and enjoyed watching the sunset over the sea. It's an ideal location with very nice finishing touches. The breakfast was equally impressive. We would definately recommend The Olive Branch. 10/10.
