We practically took over the whole place on the day of our daughters wedding! We were all made to feel sooooo comfortable and relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble, things were done without even asking. Superb place to stay, wonderful cooked breakfast and very comfortable rooms. Close to all amenities, some great places to eat as well.

We stayed here for 5 nights in July. Room 6 is brilliant for families. The decking area and garden furniture is a real bonus!! The views from guest house are amazing. The breakfasts are really lovely and you can have Steve and Shirley are great hosts and we will definitely be back!!

I do not normally write reviews but I have made an except in this case as the Surf View is a really nice place to stay. The owner (Steve) was very hospitable and it was good value for money. The location had a lovely sea view and ideally placed to visit the main attractions in North Devon. Tip: great meals... More

Good location, welcoming owners, clean and a hearty breakfast - highly recommend for couples looking to stay in Woolacombe. The coastal walk to Morthoe is great and well worth the effort too. London, UK

We were 4 golfers staying for a few days in June 2015. Steve and Shirley were very welcoming, and very helpful with a few of our questions. The smallish rooms were very clean, and probably more suited to couples, as we found the twin beds just a bit too close for friends. Its a shame that the bedside tables are... More
