We booked through NCrowd for a two night stay at the Grosvenor, Ilfracombe and barely managed to stay one night. The whole place looks neglected inside and out, dingy and outdated, a rabbit warren of narrow corridors with the most unhelpful and rude staff I have ever met. The "white" towels were grey, the bathroom lino was spongy and uneven,... More

I used a 'Groupon' to stay at this hotel, so paid £80 for two people, for two nights bed and breakfast, and an evening meal on the first night. The room itself was adequate (clean if a bit shabby), the staff were friendly and helpful (but didn't hurry to do things), and the breakfasts were actually pretty good (full English,... More

Well we went on a deal so expected a very basic room and an okay breakfast but we don't feel that we even got that. The bed was the second most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in - hard and lumpy. The breakfast situation was bizarre, we were asked if we had been there for dinner and when we... More

If I had believed everything I had read about this hotel I would never have booked it, but I can assure you some of the poor reviews are a touch harsh. I found my room to be clean and the staff helpful , the breakfast wasn't massive but was enough. Can't vouch for dinner we never had that. I would... More

Nice enough stay but I'm glad it was a deal. It would have been a disappointment at full price. Guest info booklet in room gives details of using the 'phone - there wasn't one! Hotel website says hairdryers provided in superior rooms so we packed one - there was one in our standard room! Standard room very small with poor... More

Having stayed in a three star recently in Blackpool we were a bit concerned of this offer to the hotel in Ilfracombe. However, we were pleasantly surprised, as the rooms were well maintained, though a little dated, but very clean. The beds were very comfy, had the best night sleep for a long time. This was ideal for us, wanting... More

We booked after discussing I had a disability and was told ''not a problem, we will let you in at a side door to avoid the steps at front'' That sounds good but the side door was up an super steep hill with no possibility for parking! Parking....now there's the next moan (NONE!) and Traffic wardens having a field day... More
