We stayed in August 2015 having last visited in 2011. Still highly recommend staying here. High quality rooms, service and breakfast (many choices for breakfast) and spotlessly clean. Cannot fault anything at all.

Just returned from 4 nights away at this amazing place! Stayed here with my husband & 10 year old. Had a wonderful stay and was sad to leave! Steve & Shirley could not be more welcoming, scrumptious & varied breakfast, huge comfy bed & amazing views. This is a place we would love to go back to! If you get... More

What a find! Beautifully positioned with amazing views, Surf View B & B would be hard to beat. The house is modern, tasteful and spotlessly clean. Free wifi and very friendly proprietors who go all out to make your stay a pleasure. Breakfast was excellent with plenty to choose from. The down side? I can't think of anything! We will... More

Just returned from a four night break at surfview. This was our third visit over the last few years and everything was just perfect as usual. Steve and Shirley are just brilliant. They make you feel so welcome, made a fuss of the kids. Room was great with everything you could need and was spotlessly clean. Location is stunning just... More

My wife and I have recently returned from our 2nd visit to Surf View and as with our first stay we found it very pleasant indeed. Steve and Shirley are the perfect hosts, very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very light and airy and are very well decorated. We were lucky to stay in room 2 which offered a... More

We spent 7 lovely nights in a beautiful location with fantastic views. Steve and Shirley were excellent hosts. They couldn't do enough for us. The breakfasts were good quality and plenty of it. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We have booked again for October! 😍

Spent 1 week here recently in a double room with ensuite with the other half in room 3. The room was lovely, very neat and tidy with a good choice of decor, simple but effective with sea themed pictures on the walls. Always stocked up with plenty of teabags and milk which is good for a tea lover like myself.... More

Spent 3 nights here recently. Nice place, easy walk to Woolacombe + the beach. Breakfast was excellent as were our hosts. I gave Steve a ring the day before we arrived to let him know that my family have Celiac disease and therefore all have to be gluten free and so might not be able to eat all of the... More

We spent 2 nights in early August using the guest house as a base while we did a couple of days on the South West Coast path. We had a small comfortable double room with en suite - all spotlessly clean with very tasteful furnishings and nice touches like a couple of wine glasses and a little fridge with fresh... More

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.
