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

Like many others, we selected Marine Court largely on the basis of the excellent reviews, and were not disappointed. There are individual touches that reveal how much they think about their guests' needs - for example the advice on local eateries; the availability of the breakfast room to bring food back to if you want to 'eat in'; and for...

To reference a famous FRIENDS quote by loveable character Jooey. Food? Good! Location? Good! Service? Good! Rooms? GOOD! Everything was great. Very hospitable owners and very helpful in telling us where to go and what to do. The bathroom/toilets could've been a bit bigger in our room, but the second room's bathroom and toilet was okay. Would visit both Ilfracombe... More

I picked this Guest House because of the top rating given by guests. This Guest House is rated number one in Ilfracombe for good reason. A very warm welcome is given by Karen and Russ with all the details you need on arrival, including help with your luggage. I enjoyed the top floor suite with lovely sea views to the... More

We spent five nights at Marine Court based on the great reviews as read on Tripadvisor. One phone call to judge the way the telephone was answered backed up all of the friendly reviews on the site. Text message in the morning to confirm our approximate arrival time & very friendly greeting at the front door. All rooms are on... More

A really great B&B! Karen and Russ could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Nothing is a problem for them and the place is immaculately clean. The breakfasts were lovely too. Cannot fault it in any way. Location perfect as a 5 min walk to the port.
