“Top Marks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Must recommend the Harcourt, you are made very welcome from the start, and Kirsty and her staff can’t do enough for you. The food is excellent in both quality and quantity. The hotel is kept very clean and it is in a great position for the town. Top marks.

Room Tip: We had room 2 on the 1st floor with a great sea view

We had a lovely time staying here. Service was excellent, breakfast was great, room was spacious and clean. Hotel is located in a great spot, walking distance to everything you need. We took advantage of the free travel cot which was comfortable enough for our baby to sleep easily in, and we also made use of the free baby monitor.
We'll definitely be staying here again the next time we go to Ilfracombe!

Nice B&B with 3 own very valuable parking spaces... Good location close to town, superb breakfasts, downstairs bar area and terrace very useful.... we got a warm welcome from Kirsty and everyone with an instant room upgrade due to Kirsty noticing my wife's disability [top marks for that]... free wifi was an added bonus!

Wow, what a fabulous Hotel, Kirsty was a terrific host, and the room was immaculate, facilities good, that extra little touch made it more comfortable. The breakfast was immense and the views from our room breathtaking. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a pleasant and memorable stay in Ilfracombe. It is ideally situated and close to all ammenities including the seafront and harbour.

Room Tip: room 2 and 5 have fab sea views, close to high street also and not too hilly for walking.

Arrived early but made very welcom , our room was nearly ready but not to rush our host we went for a look around to get our bearings . Room was clean and tidy . price was reasonalble and breakfast was great , Hotel is placed in the oldest street in ilfracombe called Fore street and short walks to the harbour AND main part of town was all near by , Coffee houses all nearby for that special one that you like and if you get weather like we did , you will be in heaven , Clive & Robina Dalton

Room Tip: quaint little hotel and very nice hosts plus good bar with average prices ,

This was my fourth visit to the Harcourt Hotel & as usual, Kirsty was so welcoming that I felt like family. After staying at the Harcourt the first time, I knew that I'd never find anywhere else that matches the homely feeling, fantastic food, lovely rooms & marvellous staff. Can't wait for my fifth visit.!!!! Valerie N., Husband & Granchildren

Room Tip: If, like me, you are disabled, they have a lovely downstairs room.!!
