Had a lovely stay at Gabriel House for our first visit to Ilfracombe. We stayed in the twin room with our baby. There was plenty of room for the travel cot. The ensuite is fairly small but the owners kindly showed us the large bathroom where we could bath the little one if we wished. The room was very clean... More

Our hosts were superb, looking after late arrivals and early departures, providing fresh croissants and delicious breakfasts. Six of us stayed on our way & way back from the Art Safari on Lundy Island, and John kindly took us to the ferry with all our luggage - how kind to let us leave our cars there all week too.

We chose this b&b because of the car park and the fact that it was right on the Coastal Path. We stayed here at the beginning and end of our 5 days walking along the path, catching a bus back to Ilfracombe at the end of the walk. We couldn't have chosen a better place. Tricia and John were wonderful.... More

Hotel is situated in a prime site with a beautiful sea view from the double room on the first floor. Very clean and beautifully decorated with walnut furniture and white cotton bed covers. Breakfast was 5* pre-ordered at a time to suit ourselves and great service. We would recommend our family and friends to stay here.

Great breakfast No complaints with our room--Sea view what more could you want Parking on sight and loads of spaces which is a big plus when your so close to the busy harbour. Very friendly, and informative hosts. Huge bathroom on the first floor. To die for.

Visited Ilfracombe for a friends wedding. The Gabriel House is located in an ideal spot in the centre of the town with stunning views of the sea. The room was excellent, clean, beautiful decor and a gorgeous 4 poster bed. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast choice was wide and delicious. I'd highly recommend it.

This is a lovely B&B in a perfect location, with all the style of a four star hotel. The hosts are welcoming and generous and provide additional things like a nespresso machine in the hallway with a choice of capsules to help oneself. Facilities are lovely, I stayed in the double sea view room (Helena) which is traditionally styled. The... More
