This was our second visit to The Collingdale; the first being 10 years ago. This visit didn't disappoint. The Collingdale is in an excellent, elevated location with fantastic views over Illfracombe harbour which is literally a five minute stroll down a gentle hill. The bedrooms are well appointed and very comfortable and the public areas very tastefully decorated and furnished.... More

Had a short stay here in late March and had the superior room with sea views and balcony. The view from the balcony was stunning, the staff all very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was of a very high standard. Especially the smoked haddock and poached egg, the one to go for! Will be visiting again for sure.

Previous comments about the breakfasts set the bar high, but we were not disappointed. My "full Devon" cooked to order was delicious, as was my wife's lighter choice of poached egg on toast; will have to return to try Daryl's smoked haddock. Bedroom and public rooms all clean and well ordered. The location slightly out of the town centre, but... More

Very welcoming hosts, nothing was too much trouble and we had many good recommendations of where to go and what to see! A lovely breakfast - poached and scrambled eggs are good! :) Would... More

Where do I start. Room was fantastic with views over the harbour, spotlessly clean, gorgeous towels and bathrobes, great bathroom products. Breakfast was lovingly cooked by Daryl, superb. Outstanding building Sharon and Daryl are fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Thanks for a great stay, enjoyed it very much. Jane and Nick

Must be the best B&B in Ilfracombe, excellent location with lovely views. the hosts were attentive when required but allowed you to have your own space, great tips on what to do and where to go. The breakfast was faultless, excellent local produce and cooked to perfection. Room was 'very pretty' as requested and had an excellent nights sleep. I... More
