We have just returned home after spending a great week at the Surf View. Steve and Shirley's welcome was very warm and they always had time for a chat to all the guests. The breakfasts were brilliant, plenty of choices. The room was excellent with a fabulous sea view. We have been coming down to Woolacombe for nearly 40 years... More

We have been staying with Steve and Shirley for more years than we can remember, but it gets better every time. Great hosts, lovely breakfast and very easy reach of Woolacombe village. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Have recommended many times and will continue to do so. Nick & B Fryer

I stayed at the Surf View from 27th - 30th June 2014. I had a friendly greeting by the hotel owner Steve and his wife. The room was immaculate and furnished at a high standard - the bathroom was huge! The hotel is located about 15 - 20 minutes from Woolacombe if you're on foot, which I recommend as the... More

Surf View is a fabulous B&B in beautiful Woolacombe. The views over the hills and bay are stunning. We stayed in room 5, which had it's own entrance and was spacious, clean and modern throughout. There was so much attention to detail, including the fresh milk in the silent fridge, water and glasses and clean, fluffy towels. The rooms were... More

Returned two weeks ago from a smashing 3 day break at Surf View. On arrival two things just strike you, the first is the stupendous views of the hills at one side and in front the whole bay of Woolacombe, with the sun shining you could have been in the Med! The second is the smiling Steve opening the door... More

Could not have asked for more. The warm welcome, clean room, huge bed and outstanding breakfast. The location is great (quiet but close enough to walk to the beach) and the views of the bay stunning. Thank you.
