One night stay in Ilfracombe. This is an old family run hotel, with the usual old layout that hotels have. Despite that the stay was pleasant, the people friendly and welcoming, breakfast very nice and the location very handy for all of Ilfracombe.

Room Tip: Look for rooms facing the sea.

Visited the Harcourt Hotel with my wife and Golden Labrador ( very dog friendly hotel) Our room was well equipt and modern in design. It was cleaned every day of our three day stay. The breakfast will definitely set you up for the day. All the staff here are great and very friendly and can't do enough for you. We have booked to go back in June for a flying visit on our way to Cornwall. Would definitely recommend

Very warm welcome from Jackie (Kirtsy was away). Enjoyed our room with a view looking out over Capstan Hill and the bay. Great breakfast. All the best restaurants in Ilfracombe within a few hundred metres of the door. Verity is great.
Shower pressure not good.

Room Tip: Room 5 had great view.

Very helpful regarding points of interest and when our daughter arrived without a booking they found her a room!! All in all would recommend this hotel to everyone not just dog owners!!

Would like to thank Kirsty and her team for a fantastic 8 days at the Harcourt. The hotel is pristine, the breakfast to die for and the ambience is perfect. Although dog friendly there was not a hint of dog smell anywhere and our West Highland Terrier, Pebbles, was made to feel welcome. Location is perfect you can park up and stroll down to the Harbour in one direction and in the other a short stroll to the high street. Several eating places that will accept dogs as well. All in all a perfect holiday for us and we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Room 2 - spacious and with sea view

Can't praise this little hotel enough. Stayed in Ilfracombe for a wedding and the Harcourt Hotel was a great place to stay, the room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was superb and Kirsty very warm and friendly. If staying in Ilfracombe again it'll be at the Harcourt.
