We have just made a return visit to Karen and Russ's wonderful hotel the standard has remained 5 star for everything, welcome, accommodation, cleanliness, breakfast and local knowledge, especially for evening meal recommendations. The quality of the refurbishment is superb. Many thanks for another great break.

This was our first visit to Ilfracombe and we could not have stayed anywhere better for our wedding anniversary over two nights. The standard of the accommodation for a small hotel is superb. We stayed in one of the executive suites which is well worth the extra if you are staying more than a night having a separate small lounge... More

What a weekend we had at marine court, from the very beginning, Russ and Karen were so welcoming. We arrived early but with a phone call on route to Karen, she pulled out the stops and had our room ready for us. The room was more than described, so clean and comfortable, everything you could possible need. Breakfast was a... More

I don't normally write reviews but I have to say this is an excellent hotel. We had a last minute issue which meant we would be arriving a day later than originally booked but still wanted to stay for the three days. Both Russ and Karen helped and rearrange everything for us (wonderful service) as was there recommendations for cake... More

We've just returned from a three night stay in Ilfracombe for a friend's wedding at the local Tunnels Beaches venue. We made the decision to stay at Marine Court from the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, and we weren't disappointed! We arrived a little early and unfortunately disturbed Karen and Russ's lunch (sorry again!), however they were extremely welcoming and allowed... More

Had two excellent days at the hotel. Karen and Russ were so friendly. Both rooms were immaculate and great breakfasts. No hesitation in staying again and enjoying the company of the hosts. Location is in the ideal position to travel to all parts of Ilfracombe..

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.

The hosts Karen and Russ are a lovely couple who were on hand to offer advice on where to visit, they even helped with booking us a table at... More
