Like a previous reviewer we booked the last ('small') double room but absolutely fine for the two nights that we stayed to enable us to do a day trip to Lundy. It's bigger than some other rooms we have stayed in elsewhere! Only downside - with it being on the road-side of the house - was traffic noise, which could... More

From the very warm welcome you receive from Karen & Russ on arrival, to the spotlessly clean premises throughout The Marine Court Hotel is a like breath of fresh air. With a quality bed to sleep in, to the modern shower, then once you are dried and dressed make your way down to breakfast where you will find an array... More

Our fourth visit to the Marine Court with Karen and Russ and their lovely staff, Ruth and Phila (hopefully I have spelt that correctly) and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else whilst in Ilfracombe! Felt compelled to add another review. The standard upheld in this hotel is second to none and attention to detail is, in my husbands words,... More

Everything about Marine Court is excellent. Food, good choice every morning and service excellent. Sea view, lovely to look out of window and be able to see the sea. Comfort, bed is very comfortable and chair to sit in. Everywhere is spotless. Good local knowledge on where to go and where to eat. On site parking a bonus. Good pub... More

A really professionally run small hotel . From the moment we walked into reception and met the owners we knew this was going to be good ! The first impression is an immaculately clean dining room with a full width expanse of glass overlooking the front terrace and a pretty thatched cottage pub. Our cases were taken up to our... More

Just returned from 3 nights stay at Marine Court, everything is perfect. The situation is great for a stroll into town, parking on site, fabulous hosts, large comfortable suite with every comfort (robes, mini bar, marshmallow bed!), great breakfast choices........I could go on and on but the bottom line is, stop looking at other B & B's and book this...

I have spent the last weekend at The Marine Court Hotel in Ilfracombe, Devon while I was best man at my friends wedding in Tunnel's Beaches. After looking for somewhere to stay we noticed The Marine Court had great Trip Advisor reviews and looked nice and modern so we decided this would be the best place to book. We had... More

We stayed for three nights and recommend Marine Court highly. First impressions are important- Karen welcomed us at the front door by our names and that was a lovely touch as was Russ taking our luggage to our rooms whilst we checked in. We stayed in room 8; spacious with a sitting room, tea-making facilities, mini bar, complementary water and... More

Excellent B&B, lovely people, great breakfast and spotlessly clean. Made to feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Ideally located for the harbour with it being only a 10 stroll away. We shall certainly be returning

We went for the weekend in July 2015 and cannot believe how good this place is. Everywhere is immaculately clean and nothing is too much trouble to make your stay a great experience. The breakfasts are sensational, all freshly cooked with quality ingredients and such a good choice-we loved the salmon and eggs on a bagel !. In conclusion we... More
