Granted, was a bit grubby and stuck in a 1970's time warp bit had the best location on the coast! Perfect romantic getaway for a bargain price! Definitely planning on going back again soon! Just need a bit more sunshine!!

The first thoughts of the hotel was that it was dated. Although once in our rooms they offered everything you needed and were very clean. The staff were very helpful and made your stay comfortable. Perfect location with brilliant sea views from the front of the hotel! A 5 minute walk to the harbour and even less to the high... More

We stayed in this hotel for four nights over the bank holiday weekend. There was myself, my husband and our two daughters aged 5 and 4. We were given a family room which consisted of 3 beds. The room was quite large and the bathroom was adequate. All bedding etc was clean. Yes the rooms are very dated, in fact... More

My partner and I stayed at the Arlington end of August and on the whole we were happy with our stay. As others have said the decor is dated but the hotel is clean and this didn't affect our stay. We paid extra for a guaranteed sea view room and were very glad that we had, we were on the... More

My partner and I stayed here after finding that caravan holidays were starting at £100 a night! We stayed here for £40 a night for four nights. The Arlington has a wonderful placement within Ilfracombe, a minute's walk to the harbour and only 20 seconds to the promenade. It is on a hill with a sharp incline so it may... More

Was let down by another guest house we had booked into (was not what they had advertised online - Acorn Lodge) and changed to The Arlington Hotel as a desperate measure. Was offered a sea view room. The room was spacious and clean with brilliant views of the seafront. We sat there for ages just watching the world go by... More

Stayed here for three nights this August. We arrived and had received a strange email saying that we had not got a room (this we learnt was no fault of the hotel). Panicked, we rushed into reception to see what was going on. The staff reassured us straight away that the email was incorrect, and that our room would be... More

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.
