We booked a 2 night stay at Marine Court for Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th July 2015. On arrival Karen & Russ (our hosts) were very welcoming. Our room was number 7 & it was excellent. Breakfast was superb, just how a breakfast should be, local produce that you can actually taste what your eating. Karen & Russ are knowledgeable,... More

Our 4 night stay at Marine Court was perfect and faultless. We stayed in one of the suites - with a small additional sitting room which added to the relaxation at night - allowing wife or husband to watch television without disturbing the other resting. It was at the front facing the road - but no disturbing road noise. The... More

Very clean. Rooms, bar and restaurant spotless. Karen and Russ are exceptional, friendly hosts. I cannot fault this hotel. Smoked salmon and poached eggs my favourite breakfast beautiful. It is the best place to stay in Ilfracombe! We will be returning

This place is lovely! The hosts are so friendly and the place is spotless with comfy beds. I would also say it's the best breakfast I have had in a B&B. It has a great pub directly opposite called The Thatched which also does great food. Marine court has a little bar and also a lovely seated area out the... More

Russ & Karen run a superb establishment but, even more important than the scrumptious breakfasts & immaculate rooms, you feel it gives them real pleasure to ensure you have a wonderful visit to Ilfracombe. We can't thank them enough & look forward to returning.

Have stayed at many hotels and B & B's in my time, but i cannot recommend this Hotel highly enough. Karen and Russ are wonderful hosts, helpful, polite and a pleasure to talk to. We arrived as guests but felt like we left as friends, and we only stayed 2 nights! The rooms are unbelievably spotless, comfortable and homely. We... More

Just returned home after staying with Karen and Russ for 2 nights for our anniversary. Other reviews have said it all-excellent! Karen and Russ are both warm and welcoming, so much so that it felt like staying with family. The rooms and whole place were spotless, with the breakfast tailored to each persons requirements. Recommendations for where to go were... More

I'll keep it short as all the other reviews say it all: Karen and Russ have got it all bang on. Russ's cooking is superb, expect a wonderful breakfast. Karen is wonderful at he Front of House role. The whole place is spotless. Thank you, Tripadvisor, for guiding us here.

We stayed here, in the 1st floor suite, to celebrate an anniversary weekend, based on the reviews here on TripAdviser. We were not disappointed & can heartily endorse all the accolades Karen and Russ have received. They really have thought about all the little extras that you could need: my husband was amused to discover a new pack of earplugs... More

Karen and Russ run a superb hotel. They give a warm welcome and remember your name. The accommodation is scrupulously clean and offers every comfort. Breakfasts are varied and high standard. We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed Ilfracombe and the walking along the coastal path. Lovely places to eat recommended by our hosts.
