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.

Had a extremely comfortable stay at The Dorchester. The hosts Julienne and Peter were very welcoming and their hospitality was second to none. I can see why they have awards for their breakfasts, they were superb. And seeing as I did not eat pork Julienne was happy to go and buy some beef sausages, just for me. Which I was... More

So lucky to have found this guest house online. It's very well located for the town and Juliane and Peter the perfect hosts. We had a fantastic room. Spacious and beautifully decorated. Extremely comfortable queen size bed, private facilities AND a well stocked minibar! We just loved it so much! Will definitely recommend it!

The hotel was clean and welcoming and the breakfast delicious. We found all the facilities in perfect working order. Julienne was attentive. The hotel was very easy to find as it is on the road into Ilfracombe from Barnstaple. In spite of this we heard very little noise from the traffic below our room and our stay was relaxing.

We were extremely impressed with everything right from the start. Our room was lovely, nice and big, totally spotless and very comfortable. A good quality TV and a DVD player with a large choice of films downstairs in the hallway. We had a fridge and a mini-bar which was really useful and downstairs in the lounge, there was another bar.... More

This review somewhat belated 2012/2013 . Loved this quaint friendly B&B in Ilfracombe. Stayed here 4 nights after the long haul from Adelaide arriving Boxing Day to attend Wedding In Woolacoombe. Julienne kindly sent us prior to check in all the local restaurants/menus and arranged bookings for us, as it was Boxing Day most places either closed, busy and fully... More
