Another fabulous stay with Karen and Russ! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ilfracombe. Immaculate accommodation cleaned to the highest standards (we had a king seaview again with beautiful views towards the harbour statue, Verity). Our kingsize bed is one of the comfiest beds we have slept in with snow white luxury linen. Karen and Russ are fantastic friendly hosts with... More

Lovely warm welcome and friendly throughout our stay. Great personal touches e.g. Chocolate egg on Easter sunday. Great breakfasts, good ingredients perfectly cooked - especially the boiled eggs and soldiers! Sea view room was very comfortable and clean. Day trip to Lundy recommended. Coastal walks are fantastic. Woolacombe beach nearby is worth a surf, run or stroll. An excellent B&B.

Breakfast of a high standard and you can choose from an extensive list including vegetarian option. Bar area relaxing, where Russ and Karen can inform you of walks and local history... More

This is a great guest house. Not big - 8 rooms over two floors. Car park next door and a nice pub over the road. Only a ten min walk into town, down the hill. Russ and Karen are great hosts, knowing all guests by name. It's very clean and tidy and the breakfast is as good as you can... More

It was a wonderful hotel and Karen and Russ were very welcoming. The room was perfect and had everything we needed, including filtered water. This attention to detail was evident throughout. Fantastic seaview too.!!! The breakfast was perfect and the owners are happy for guests to bring in a takeaway to be eaten in the dining room. We think that... More

Everything about this hotel is top class, the owners are helpful, friendly and professional, the breakfast is made with good quality produce and cooked to your liking, homemade fresh fruit salad. PERFECT. The hotel is spotless, the bed was extremely comfortable with top quality bedding. Hotel has private parking spaces. Ilfracombe is a lovely town.

To date 148 sets of visitors have voted The Marine Court outstanding, and we will make it 149. There's nothing more to say,it's all been said before! There really is no reason to extend this review, but apparently my review has to be 200 characters long. So let me say everything is taken care of. From the moment you step... More

A lovely welcoming B&B. Visited with another couple, a double with sea view and an suite. Both rooms were spacious, well equipped and modern. The suite had a coffee machine, although we didn't use was an extra special touch. The bed in the suite was nice, but a little too soft for our personal preference. Although the room overlooked the... More
