Jackie gave us a very warm and friendly welcome on our arrival. Our room was very comfortable and extremely clean. The breakfasts were delicious and staff went out of their way to ensure that you had everything that you needed. The hotel was in an excellent position, close to the harbour and the town centre. We would not hesitate to... More

This was our 2nd time staying at the Harcourt Hotel and it was just as wonderful as the first. Everyone there goes to the effort of making you feel at home and the service they provide is excellent. Parking is limited but there are loads of car parks not far from the b&b and the tourist information offer a 3... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel, its quiet, clean and comfortable. Nice view from window (Rm 5). Breakfast was variable depending on who cooked it - first morning was great, second morning not so good. Managed to squeeze into the parking space and left car there while we spent days exploring Ilfracombe on foot. The hotel is... More

clean comfortable room, bathroom a little tired although clean and functional could do with updating. Breakfast, excellent choice, quickly and pleasantly served, although this must be ordered in advance if you require a full English. Staff friendly and helpful, the parking is a little tight if you have a medium sized car we would definitely stay there again, a perfect... More

We have just had a two night break at Harcourt Hotel and couldn't have wished to have stayed anywhere nicer. Jackie was so very welcoming right from the start, as were her staff throughout our stay. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable, with everything we could have wanted in it. Breakfasts were yummy and nice and hot, with plenty... More

As regular visitors to Ilfracombe would definately return to The Harcourt again. The hotel is in a good location, exceptionally clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent especially the fresh fruit salad. Would highy recommend The Harcourt over other hotels in Ilfracombe.

A great location, and a perfect little room for my one-night stay between visiting Lundy and going home to London. Very good value, the room had everything I needed and was very clean and comfortable. I had to leave too early for breakfast but was provided with a nice packed lunch instead. Highly recommended.
