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 partner and I were doing the Devon Coast to coast ride. Our first nights stay was at the Dorchester Guest House. Fantastic B & B. The hosts were welcoming and very professional. Great attention to detail. Shown to our room which had a small minibar. T.V. and DVD player. DVDs were downstairs if you wanted to borrow anything. The... More

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.

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.
