Great, family run place. Very welcoming, great location, nicely decorated. They'd thought of everything to make your stay better- directions to beat the sat nav, tips for somewhere to get a late meal on arrival even DVDs to borrow if it rains! We were in room 4 which was at the front overlooking the road but it was quiet, beautifully... More

Just got back from a weekend trip as we had a wedding to go to. Great location, Martin and Wendy were so welcoming and helpful and the rooms were really comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were fantastic and there was the added bonus of being able to eat in the diner in the evening - the burgers were lovely! Can't... More

The Rocks Hotel is an ideal place when visiting Woolacombe, Wendy and Martin are perfect hosts. Our room (8) was nicely furnished and spotless clean, the beds very comfortable and had a really lovely bathroom. Breakfast at The Rocks is served in the American themed Diner, which is amazing. Self service cereals, yoghurt, juices toast everything you wanted, followed by... More

What a great location and really friendly, helpful hosts! We only stayed a few nights but it's perfect for that, or a longer stay. Really close to the centre of Woolacombe, but set back enough to escape any crowds or noise, it's great whether you're looking to enjoy the great outdoors or enjoy the cafes, bars and restaurants in town....

What a wonderful welcome we were given by Martin and Wendy as we arrived soaking wet after walking a day of the South West path in driving rain and wind. They welcomed us in without hesitation, brought lots of hot tea and biscuits and took all our wet clothes and gear and dried them overnight. A really lovely little personal... More

This was our fourth visit to the Rocks and as always the welcome was excellent. The diner has been completely revamped and is well worth seeing, especially if you've seen it before. Wendy's son Matt and wife Stef run the American themed dining experience, Roxy's Diner, throughout the day while Wendy and Martin do what they do best, run a... More

The Rocks has it all. The hotel is always immaculate. The breakfast is fantastic. The welcome is warm and friendly. Wendy and Martin are brilliant hosts and we look forward to every stay. In recent months there has been the addition of Roxy's Diner that serves food during the day in the American themed diner and that too has to... More

A one night stay in what I can only say is a brilliant Bed and Breakfast. It does exactly what a B & B should do.... Bedroom: Spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed, and lots of storage (although we didn't need it for one night) Breakfast: Wendy produced the best full English I can remember. Locally sourced, great quality and cooked... More
