“DONT EVEN CONSIDER IT”
However, if you are considering using this hotel, don’t take a car as there is very little parking - “4 spaces in total!” If you are lucky enough to get one of these great, but don’t move your car during your stay as you wont get that space again. If you are not one of the lucky ones, you will need to use on street parking at £1.40 per hour with a maximum stay of 4 hours, no return. As pointed out by the Hotel owner, it is free between 6pm and 6am however, you will need to move your car to another bay at 6am and feed the machine. There is a short stay car park further along the sea front but this costs £10 for 5 hours, with a max stay of 5 hours with no return or overnight parking.
We visited at the start of the season and whilst there were some spaces available at this time, I am sure that during high season on street sea front parking will be very hard to find. All things considered this was one of the worst hotels I can remember visiting (our room appeared to have been created out of a cupboard under the stairs). Even standing in reception the owner was telling me the hotel had 12 parking spaces but when I attempted to use the offsite parking area there was clearly only 4 spaces. 4 spaces for a hotel boasting of 300 rooms? Other guests arrived at the same time as us and quickly filled up the on street bays but they appeared to be as confused as us. It was total madness as people jostled for spaces trying to work out where they were going to park for their stay. We were unable to find suitable parking (4 hours with no return is frankly ridiculous if you are planning to stay for the weekend) so decided we had no alternative but to come home.
Ilfracombe looks lovely place and worth a visit but do not use this hotel for your stay
