The Grosvenor Hotel has been sold, and people moving out 8th Jan. We had a good 3 days there, food and staff were excellent. The hotel very tired with leaking roof, so occasional drips. Even if the whole place was refurbished I wouldn't go again. Too many steps, up to the front door, and along passages inside. Which like most... More

Another year another Turkey and Tinsel. Same helpful staff, but the food lets it down, vegetables only just warmed not cooked, eg. sprouts still solid in the centre I couldn't cut them. Breakfast choice limited, tomato only available on one morning for example. We were told it is to be sold in the new year, the new owners have much... More

Clean, comfortable, no frills hotel. Don't expect the Ritz, but you can expect a warm and friendly welcome, and a comfortable stay. Plenty of tea and coffee in the room, replenished as you use it. You won't go hungry, food is basic but good and plenty of it. We will stay there again.

Very pleasant stay at the hotel. A bit dated, but clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good and plenty of it. This was a retirement gift from my workmates. Don't go there expecting 5 star facilities as this is not what you will have paid for.

We're supposed to stay here for two nights but out of three rooms we were put in, there wasn't one which was basically clean. One room was so disgusting, smelt like an old ashtray! Filthy dresser with coffee spilt down the front, stains on the bed cover and the bathroom was filthy and full of mould. Had to find another... More

If you stay at this hotel please understand that you are not staying at the Ritz, this property is exactly what is purports to be, a good 2star/3star property near to the front at Ilfracombe. Yes it takes in coach parties, all the hotels do, yes the breakfast is basic, choice of cereal, fruit juice, sausage,bacon,eggs,beans and toast, tea/coffee, but... More

We booked two nights (A Saturday & Sunday). Included in our £79 deal was evening dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday & Monday mornings. When we arrived we were told what time dinner was and given the Belgrave Suite. The room was lovely. Clean, tidy and very big. There was plenty of cupboard space, a tv and fridge. The... More
