Spent a weekend with a group of friends - 9 of us in all - and had a fantastic time. We were made to feel welcome by Martin and Wendy on arrival and for the whole stay. It is ideally located for the beach and local facilities. The dining room - Rocky's Diner - is wonderfully atmospheric of a 1950s... More

After visiting Woolacombe for many years, I would recommend The Rocks as a brilliant place to stay! The service provided is always outstanding - Wendy, Martin, Matt and Steph make you feel like you're at home and nothing is ever too much trouble for them. The hotel has recently opened 'Roxy's Diner' which is a great touch to the hotel.... More

Stayed over the Easter weekend for three nights. Everything was great. Breakfast in the American Diner is a highlight. There was even Easter eggs waiting at everyone's table on the Sunday morning. Martin and Wendy go that extra mile for their guests. We'll be back again.

Walking the South West Coast Path, I stopped here for a welcoming and comfortable overnight stay. Co-owner Martin literally 'went that extra mile' and ventured out to look for me when I was a little late arriving. I ate in the American diner (the Roxy), which was - to say the least - a rather ideosyncratic venue to find in... More

Martin and Wendy run an excellent small hotel which is centrally located. The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully furnished, there is a guest lounge. The American diner is first class offering burgers, hot dogs, etc in the evening it is also the breakfast room. Decked with masses of quality paraphernalia including an original 1959 juke box it's the real... More

We have been regulars at the Rocks but have sort of taken it for granted as an awesome accommodation, friendly welcoming service – “a home from home” But I have felt we needed to do a new review as the Rocks continue to extend their first class offer. We stay in the SC apartment but breakfast in the main hotel... More

We stayed in the apartment, which was beautifully decorated and spacious. Home from home but holiday feel. Access to wet suits and surf boards, which is an added bonus. As we arrived our mouths fell open at the appearance, clean and fresh. When the windows are slightly open, you can hear the sea which was most enjoyable. You can sit... More
