“Comfortable and friendly!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

We stayed for 3 nights in a family room with our boys aged 11 & 12. The room was very spacious, comfortable, clean and was tidied daily. Jason could not have been more welcoming and helpful telling us about the local area and offering good advice about the places that we wanted to visit. Breakfast was delicious and this guest house has a 5 star food hygiene rating from Scores on the Doors. The location is good - not too far from the town centre and very close to a pleasant cafe which has a variety of activites available such as pitch & putt, bowls, tennis ,table tennis... I would totally recommend staying here but just one point - do not eat at the Dolphin Restaurant by Ilfracombe harbour - we had a meal there which was dreadful!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2009

Jason, one of the hosts, welcomed us in with a tray of tea of biscuits which was most appreciated after our arduous journey. The room was clean and completely adequate for our needs. They cleaned and tidied it daily. Breakfast was superb and ample. We were never made to feel rushed or that anything was too much trouble. We would definately recommend this type of treatment to anyone thinking of a break.
