Going home after another brilliant stay! (stayed in Nov 14 too, but Trip Advisor only let's you review every three months! Both stays have been brilliant!

I'm a bit late in reviewing, I stayed here with my girlfriend in June 2014. The Hotel has a good location just a short walk from the beach, restaurants and bars. Martin and Wendy are fantastic hosts, I can't say enough about them. The breakfast was delicious, I always had the full English breakfast. There are also cereals and yoghurts... More

We spent 2 wonderful nights here, didn't want to return to the real world! Came during the off season so not much was open but this suited us. Wonderful breakfast that I missed when home. Can't wait to return!

A superb place to stay! Martin and Wendy are kind and welcoming hosts. They run a clean, comfortable and centrally located hotel. The breakfast room is like stepping into an American diner complete with jukebox and sixties memorabilia. The food is healthy and tasty. The attention to detail (like having free ear-plugs if you're a light sleeper like me) makes... More

The rocks hotel is my all time favourite because Wendy and Martin are the perfect hosts. All of the rooms I have stayed in are all very clean, tastefully decorated with comfortable beds, duvets and pillows. The shower rooms are very clean and have fab big towels. Breakfast is always perfect with such a choice and is served in the... More

If you're visiting Woolacombe then this is the place to stay. Spotless and comfortable with fine attention to detail. Free use of surf boards and wetsuits if you want them. Perfectly placed for the seafront and attractions. Run by the friendliest and welcoming couple you may ever meet. The restaurant/breakfast room ROCKS!
