Apprehensive on entry as the surrounding area is a little worse for wear ( but lots of renovations in progress,it seems!). Apprehensions removed on entry - lovely reception area and lounge ; a great friendly welcome.Sharon couldn't have been more help - even booked us a restaurant after providing us with menus - my obstinate vegetarianism often makes it hard...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Collingdale. They were very friendly. The rooms were a good size and lovely and clean. Location was also spot on with only a short walk into town although quite a gradient, getting back was a killer after a long day. The Devon Breakfast was the best cooked breakfast I have had, nothing was burnt,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Our room had a wonderful view of the harbour. The room was immaculately clean and well appointed. Bed and pillows top quality and extremely comfortable. The best sleep we had in 5 weeks in England. Good location short walk to harbour, shops and restaurants. Breakfast was excellent, choice extensive, fresh ingredients and well presented.... More

The location is great, a very quick walk to the harbor and Fore Street. The room was nice, bed very comfortable, the bathroom was rather small and the shower very noisy (top floor room). Breakfast was very nice and Sharon was very welcoming and was great at giving lots of extra info when it came to deciding where to eat... More

Family room - well appointed, very clean, good shower \ ensuite. Great welcome, brilliant hosts, easy booking and excellent communication.. Fantastic hotel, amazing views, convenient location for High Street or Harbour. We all had a wonderful, hearty, ethical, local, breakfast with gorgeous harbour views. Nothing negative to report at all.

We were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Very comfortable, well finished ensuite room with a great view over the harbour and across to Wales. Cracking breakfast to start the day and lots of really helpful advice on places to visit and good restaurants! Our host helped to make our anniversary weekend really special.

Keep it simple. Friendly host, best breakfast award, only place in Ilfracombe to have it with locally sourced produce of high quality, locally roasted coffee (Porlock). Comfortable room with good quality fittings and a comfy bed etc. Very accommodating too. Friends staying a a self catering place locally, who were able to get breakfast for very reasonable fee.

We stayed for 3 nights on the top floor (7 flights of stairs???) in a comfortable room overlooking the harbour. Breakfast was a treat, with a good helping of a fresh Devon fry up (or fish and cornflakes if you prefer). The hosts were attentive and made sure the stay was perfect. We hope to return here soon as it... More

Booked the Collingdale as a starting point stay over for our cycle trip to Plymouth. We were very well looked after by Sharon and the hotel was in a great position within easy walking distance into Ilfracombe. We booked 3 twin rooms and all were clean and spacious. Breakfast was excellent and I would recommend the Collingdale to all

Only stayed the one night at the start of our cycling holiday. Arrived very late - but none the less got a very warm welcome. Nice and clean - great views from front room and very pleasant bedrooms. Excellent breakfast. Would highly recommend. Also pretty good value for money. Very pleasant owner - couldn't have been more helpful.
