I had already booked somewhere to stay in Woolacombe, but when I read the reviews of the place I cancelled my booking. Well, thank goodness I did because I then found and booked The Rocks Hotel. As soon as we arrived we were made welcome by Wendy and Martin. We had friends from the states with us so I'd booked... More

What can I say - another year at the Rocks ; - in fact 12 of my friends and family. Wendy and Martin are not just hosts, they have become friends. Excellent service, fabulous food both breakfast and Roxy's diner, the best location for everything and more. Don't miss out on a trip to the Rocks . . .

Before arriving we was kindly upgraded to a king sea view room, great start! Wendy was lovely and welcoming, showed us all the hotel... More

What a fab place! Location of the Rocks is perfect. Within easy walking distance of the beach, cafe's and restaurants. Great parking, FREE use of wet-suits, (loads of sizes to choose from) surf boards and kayaks. The breakfast is perfect, served in a fun breakfast room in the style of an American diner, together with a full sized juke box... More

Spent August Bank holiday weekend in Woolacombe and stopped at the Rocks. Fantastic weekend and the accommodation and owners Martin and Wendy were fab. Full English was must set in a 1950s style dinner. We will definitely be going back like many regulars.

We have just returned from a fantastic 1 week holiday at The Rocks. We received a warm welcome from Martin, the rooms were lovely and cleaned each day. Fantastic breakfasts (thank you Wendy) in the Roxy's Diner which has a fantastic upbeat atmosphere. We loved choosing songs on the old Juke Box. We ate in the Diner one evening and... More

A lovely reception from Wendy, and fresh milk to take to the room for my cup of tea. Room on the small side, but it was only an overnight stay. It was spotlessly clean and nice fluffy towels. Martin took great pride in their rather large breakfasts, aware that most people really enjoy fried bread, but only have it in... More

We stayed for an evening at Rocks Hotel this week. Apart from the weather we couldn't fault our overnight break in Woolacombe! The B & B is very easy to find and we received a very warm welcome on our arrival. Our room was a little small but absolutely fine for one evening, very nice bathroom and comfy bed. Breakfast...
