Couldn't fault this place. The owners are mega friendly and welcoming, nice room with a sea-view, lovely breakfast. Literally a 5 minute walk into town down the hill, and it has it's own car park. So basically, a big tick in every box.

The Marine Court hotel is lovely. Perfectly located for walking into Ilfracombe. Russ and Karen are the great hosts. Great tips on restaurants and they produced an amazing breakfast themselves. Karen remembers everyone's names! Room perfect. Nicely decorated and we were fortunate to have a sea view too! Would definitely stay here again. Thanks.

This guest house must be one of, if not the best accommodation available in Ilfracombe! The reception received from Russ and Karen, the owners, was just amazing and they are SO friendly. Our refurbished room with sea view put most 5 star hotels to shame, it was really comfortable. And Russ's breakfast is the BEST full English we have experienced... More

My wife & I stayed for 2 nights & would thoroughly recommend it. The hosts are very accomodating; our bags were taken to our room for us, a table booked at a local pub & taxis booked, even though they were just about to eat when we arrived. The room was very bright & clean with a small but functional... More

Stayed here for two nights in August. The Hotel is located less than 10 minute walk from harbour. We arrived early and received a warm welcome from Russ. Bags were taken to our room, whilst we checked in. Karen was also warm and welcoming. Lovely room with views out to sea, spotless and very comfortable. After a walk into town... More

Just lovely. We were met with a warm welcome and able to check in earlier than planned. We were shown to our room, which was standard double, the room was immaculately clean with a lovely decor. The small shower room en suite was equally spotless. There was filtered water and 'twinnings' tea, even the kettle was spotless. In the morning... More

This is a very relaxing hotel, well run and with the focus on the guests. Comfortable rooms, nice breakfast and exceptionally friendly proprietors, Location is good, a short walk from centre, but we welcome the quiet because of that. One suggestion: newspapers for the guests at breakfast. Recommended hotel if you are planning on Ilfracombe.

My wife and I stayed at The Marine Court for six nights, we booked a double sea-view room. On arrival we were greeted by the owners, nothing was any trouble at all, incredibly friendly and genuine people... couldn't wish for better hosts. There is also a huge CCTV monitored car park next door... which was a big bonus. We were... More

A really friendly welcome from very professional and approachable hosts, fantastic breakfast - loved the black pudding - cooked to your preference, clean and comfortable room, close enough to Verity for a gentle stroll but not in the noisy area of town, parking no problem - that's a real bonus! We stayed two nights and will be going back again... More
