Had a four night stay recently at this lovely B&B, what a great find. Lovely room with everything we needed, even a mini - bar!! Breakfast was excellent with a good choice. The owners are great and made us very welcome.

We stayed at The Dorchester for 2 nights for my Fiances birthday, Julienne was lovely, made us very welcome from the start, we were in room 8 at the top of the house although classed as the smaller of the room it was very comfortable and had everything you needed! Will be going back to stay again!

Just come back from staying at this guesthouse. It was absolutely lovely. Very clean, friendly lady. We stayed in room 1 which was lovely and also a nice size. We couldn't fault the breakfast and liked the added touch of being able to order a sandwich at lunch time . I would definitely stay here again very good value money... More

The guest house was booked by a good friend as a base for her sons wedding at The Tunnels Beach. We were not disappointed. A fantastic room with an attentive host and a cracking breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble.

My wife and I had a great 1 night stay recently and left very refreshed and happy. The room was excellent with some great little touches and the breakfast was brilliantly done. The hosts were very accommodating and knowledgable about the area and this all helped us have a wonderful stay. Great value too!

A really lovely B&B. We stayed in Room 1 - a very spacious en- suite room with a king sized bed, mini fridge with drinks and snacks, dvd player and sofa. Beautiful but also homely. Separate lounge for guests. There is a bus stop outside the property which provides a direct link to and from Barnstaple bus and rail station... More

A warm welcome from the hosts, a large bedroom with a huge sumptuous bed, an excellent breakfast, free wifi (that works), free dvd's and player, a well stocked fridge, home from home comfort. The Dorchester has to be the first choice in Ilfracombe for comfort, service and location, we cannot recommend it highly enough.
