An amazing experience of total customer service. I made a request to book the hotel for a night a while ago whist planning a first tour of the Cornwall and Devon areas, I was contacted by the owners to say they were away on holiday at the time but their son Matt would be looking after the place and there...

Where do we start!! What an amazing place. We booked last minute for a 2 night break. I love Woolacombe and have been visiting for 10 years, but this was a first time visit for my partner. The hotel was in the perfect location and our room had a lovely sea view. The room was perfect, the bed was comfy... More

Having decided to try and sneak in a late summer break we were very fortunate to be able to get into The Rocks Hotel on the back of another cancellation. All we can say is how lucky we were! From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Wendy and Martin to the point we left. Nothing was too much... More

This hotel is just what we hoped for, to start off with it has its own parking area well lit easy to find. The warm reception was great we were half an hour early but were given our key so we disappeared around the town and our room was ready as promised half an hour later. The room was lovely,... More

We stayed at the Rocks for three nights in July. This was our third stay - but the first time we have stayed in the Apartment. This was ideal for our party of 2 adults and 2 older teenagers. They loved having the lounge area to relax in. The apartment is very well appointed with everything you could want. It... More

Both my wife and I were only able to spend three holiday nights at this hotel, but it was a very special time. The friendliness and care of Wendy and Martin were outstanding. The location with a free adjacent car park to the hotel; plus only 300metres from Woolacombe beach made it an ideal place. The bedroom and en-suite were... More

We were recommended to this hotel by friends. We stayed on 11th and 12th August 2014. We have three rooms which were modern and clean. The owners of this hotel are fabulous. They cannot do enough for you. We had a delicious breakfast in the American Theme dining room, arrangements were made for us to go horse riding and recommendations... More

I think the thing that makes so many people hold The Rocks in high regard is that it seems like a place that has consciously evolved for the better, guided by the professional, friendly and courteous nature of the staff/proprietor combo of Martin and Wendy, who clearly have a passion for not only getting the basics right, but adding a...

This B and B is located in a great spot, only a short walk to the beach, so you can leave the car in the car park at the back of the hotel. The hosts are really friendly and give you some great advice about places to go and eat and visit. The room we had was adequate with en-suite... More
