Yes it is dated but its is clean, spacious and it has character. The main lounge area and dinning room carrys the charm of what was once a grand hotel With the little quality touches like comfortable large sofas in a warm  friendly relaxing bar area. There is alot of stairs in the hotel and our room was at the... More

Hotel was clean and staff very friendly. Don't expect much in the way of choice on the menu and don't expect juice with your breakfast, it's either cereal or juice not both. Mean in my opinion. Won't visit again but Ilfracombe was fab.

We stayed here in July 2015. Bit of a delay checking in as one member of staff was covering reception and the bar. Room was compact, clean and comfortable. Food was of a good standard and restaurant staff extremely helpful. Evening entertainment was a mixed bag, some truly awful and others, the singer on Saturday night especially were very good....

Stayed here on a budget coach trip weekend. We weren't expecting a lot, and so it was. The room was very "tired", but clean, the bed comfy, with good towels, and plenty hot water. The staff were friendly, but we were marshalled into the restaurant!

I came her for a surprise on my birthday on the weekend. I will never set foot in this hotel again. There were weeds growing out of the window panes, rooms were so old fashioned and the food was so disgusting and pointless we were laughing at the dinner table. I had soup and there were 4 spoons worth in... More

We recently spent two nights in Ilfracombe at the Grosvenor. It's a no frills hotel and doesn't pretend to be anything other than budget accommodation BUT the staff all offer first class service. There's good old fashioned entertainment each evening, the breakfasts are delicious and the location is central for sightseeing at Tunnels Beach and within the harbour precinct. Our... More
