A beautiful terrace on the inside, disappointing on the outside. Our room was small but comfortable with an excellent view of the water. The communal lounge and breakfast rooms were beautifully furnished and comfortable. We were mislead by the use of the term "dining room" to describe what was, in fact, a breakfast room only - no dinner served. Not... More

I recently spent a couple of nights at the Collingdale with my partner. After seeing the previous reviews, we had high expectations and were not left disappointed. Sharon was extremely helpful and recommended local places to eat and visit. The breakfast was a perfect way to start the day and you could tell that it was made up of fresh... More

Our room was clean with a great view of the water; Sharon the hostess is charming and very inviting. We were provided with the best English Breakfast we had during our 3 week trip to England and Wales. Highly recommend this unique B&B!

Stayed here August bank holiday for 3 nights. The hosts were sooooo lovely. Sharon was very well knowing about all the best places to eat and visit and could advise us well. She booked us a table at an amazing restaurant so saved us the time to enjoy our break. The breakfast was lovely! Great alternatives if you didn't feel... More

My fiancé and I had 2 lovely nights at the very reasonably priced Collingdale. We opted for a sea view room with king size bed. Just the right amount of space and furniture, including full length mirror and facilities like kettle and great selection of teas/coffee/hot choc and also good hair dryer. Bathroom was cosy but well equipped. Delicious breakfast... More

Stayed at the Collingdale over this weekend, and had to write a review straight away when we got home. After reading a few negative reviews about the parking, we arrived mid afternoon on Friday, and found a space outside straight away. We left the car for 3 days and it was completely safe. We also saw the alternative car park,... More

I booked the Collingdale blindly. I was visiting Ilfracombe for 3 days/2 nights for my friends wedding. I loved it. My wife was unable to travel down with me as she had a last minute commitment. I kept on the double room and am so glad I did. I was fortunate enough to stay in room 6. This was spacious... More

We have just returned from our 3 day/2 night visit of Ilfracombe. The purpose of our visit was for a friends wedding at Tunnels Beaches. The Collingdale Hotel is a beautiful hotel which has amazing sea views. The owners (Sharon & Daryl) were very welcoming and would do anything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms were... More
