Having had to relocate to another hotel in Ilracombe due to unexpected circumstances, has reinforced how professional yet very welcoming the Harcourt is. Very good value for money. The food is excellent with reasonable choice (including choice of white or brown bread!!!!) Look forward to revisiting in the future.

Typical seaside B&B/hotel. The room was tastefully decorated and the electric heater had no trouble warming the room. Some choice for breakfast but not as good as other places. No choice of bread, white only.

It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel. I had a very comfortable, spacious double room that had all a weary hiker would need to relax and feel at home. The room, en suite and all areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was super and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Other hotel owners could learn... More

Kirsty gave us a really warm welcome and made us feel at home - nothing was too much trouble (even a silly o clock breakfast to catch a boat). Would recommend this hotel to all it is in a very good location for the town and beaches.

This was a short-notice booking as we were touring on a motorbike, it got a bit late & we thought "well let's just relax and continue tomorrow"! I think it was recently refurbished as all clean and modern. Very friendly staff who went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Our room had a nice big open... 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
