Just got back from this hotel and it was awful, we were told we had been given a 'big' double room... would have hated to see a small one. The room was at the top and smelt musty, the bed creaked and groaned when you sat on it let alone tried to sleep in it, every time you moved in... More

The quaint village of Ilfracombe is a stop worth making if you are traveling through the beautiful North Devon Coast line. The best hospitality to find is at the Grosvenor Hotel. It's location is walking distance to the fun of the village and the beach. This hotel is owned by a local family who has put warmth and charm in... More

This hotel may have seen better days, but it certainly strives to accommodate one's wishes. Every staff member I spoke to were helpful and friendly, the food was decent and nicely presented, we especially liked 'our' table with... More

After we had booked this holiday I read some of the reviews on here and to say I was apprehensive was an understatement, however we decided to press on with our booking. I am... More

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 The whole place looks neglected inside and out, dingy and outdated, a rabbit warren of narrow corridors with the most unhelpful and rude staff I have ever met.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
