A lovely place to stay. Everything was spotless, the room a great size and julienne the owner cooked a fantastic breakfast. Lots of extras like a fridge with fresh milk and a fresh bottle of water each day. Drinks and snacks could also be purchased either from your room or in the guest lounge.

Excellent premier room ,clean with TV, fridge mini -bar, hot drinks, biscuits ,and many other little extras. Delicious breakfast served by Julienne who could not have been more helpful.Just could be a problem for anyone with mobility problems as there are quite a lot of steep steps.

I stayed here with my boyfriend in February 2014 on a very impromptu visit to Ilfracombe. We didn't book in advance so Julienne only had about 10 minutes to get everything ready for us! You couldn't tell though as the whole house was perfect. We chose the premier room which is very spacious and has a huge bed and walk-in... More

Only stayed at the Dorchester for one night, but we will return. There is nothing you can fault here, we received a warm welcome from the owner Julienne, who showed us to our room. We booked a premier double and it was. A large clean room with a large en suite bathroom which had a truly massive walk in shower.... More

A very comfortable room with lots of little extras, TV, hairdryer, clock, toiletries, a good choice of hot drinks in our room, fridge and fresh milk. An extensive menu for breakfast, and it was all delicious! Everything spotless. A friendly attentive owner who couldn't have been more helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay.

Staying in the recently refurbished Luxury room we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Dorchester House. From the excellent service to the lovely hidden extra's the experience was first class. The room was fitted with everything you could need and more. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area, you wont be dissapointed!

We felt we needed a stress breaker so we booked here for 2 nights. The weather was horrible as was the journey, what with the floods, road closures and diversions. On arrival, all that was instantly forgotten as the Dorchester was simply fantastic. The welcome was great. Our room was superb, so comfortable and airy. Breakfasts were first class. Nothing... More

We were the first guests to stay this year and were so pleased with our choice for our 2 night break. Everything about our stay was wonderful from the comfortable room to the yummy breakfast.
