We stayed there only 1 night, but enjoyed it very much. Cosy old style hotel with very nice and friendly reception manager, great location, easy access to internet, tea/coffee facilities in the clean room with clean towels and bathroom. Definitely recommendable.

A fantastic hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was brilliant. But the best was it was old fashion decor not like all these modern hotels/b&b's. A great old building with old character and fantastic staff. Nice sea view. Room was clean and coffe and tea in room all the time. Will be staying there again.

We stayed in room 23 which has fantastic views across the bay of Ilfracombe. Although I agree with other reviewers that the decor is a bit tired, the rooms was spotless with plenty of tea and coffee supplies. Breakfast was good and plenty of it with excellent service by all staff. Early evening sun through the large sash windows made... More

Spent 4 very comfortable nights at the Arlington, and would definitely do so again. I was in a sea view double, (extra, but worth it !), even though I was a solo traveller. This was very clean and spacious with plenty of closet space. The shower had loads of hot water but wasn't all that powerful; maybe this was due... More

Hotel was clean and tidy, breakfast was good, staff friendly. Old fashioned but great value and location, perfect for a short stay. Just have to have realistic expectations and perhaps not spend too much time in your room:)

This was a cheap stay and because of that I was happy to look past the outdated decor... but the mattress on the bed was soft and uncomfortable and the shower kept running hot and cold. I wish now that we'd stumped up the extra £20 a night and stayed at the lovely guest house down that road that we... More

staff is very friendly and the view from the room is magnificent with direct sea view great value for 35 pound per night for a family room however the decorations are very dated and the wash room is too small

I found the Arlington a good place to stay, the hotel is cheap and could really do with updating but it is fine how it is. Did really want to go into the pool but it wasn't opening till mid may and didn't realized they had a sauna and sun bed until our last day. All round a nice pleasant... More

I have stayed here a few times and recommend it as long as you are realistic about what you get for the price. It is inexpensive and you get what you pay for. The view (which is worth paying the extra for) is wonderful and it is clean. Yes, it is dated but I think it adds to the whole... More

Excellent location with a lovely sea view. A bit basic but fine for what I wanted. The shower was a tad temperamental but other than that the bedroom was fit for purpose and I had a good night's sleep.
