Just had a 4 day stay here. Lovely small bed and breakfast with comfortable en suite rooms. Breakfast was good, and Abby and Greg were really nice, very helpful and chatty. We walked part of the North Devon coastal path and their suggestions on starting points and eateries were very helpful. We ate in the evening at the pub (The Thatch) as the weather was atrocious! It’s just down the road and has good food and a range of beers. The entrance to Laston House which has a long drive can be found at: What3wordswords ///gains.diary.verbs.

I needed a holiday and had never been to Devon so, having reviewed what I wanted to see and do I set off to Ilfracombe and Laston House. This unassuming house sits on a plot of land between 2 roads leading down to the harbour. It was one of the first grand houses built there last century and has managed to retain it's original features throughout. The room I had was more than ample and had to large windows which gave me a 180 view towards to harbour and across the town. My room decor and furniture was in keeping with the rest of the house and complimented it perfectly. The bed was comfortable and boasted fine quality bed linen which was a real treat; finished with great pillows, you are guaranteed a great nights sleep. Because the house is old you will hear heavy snorers so pack ear buds. In the mornings, enjoy the superb breakfast range lovingly prepared by your hosts Abi and Greg. I was well looked after and they went that extra mile and recognised my birthday too - very kind. Oh and, they are even prepared to do a bit of laundry if you need it. Do take advantage of their wine selection too - they have great taste, If you want mod cons then this won't be the place for you but you will get everything else you need like a well stocked tea and coffee tray (with biscuits) in your room, luxury towels (that actually wrap around you) and enough plug sockets for all those unnecessary electronics we have all come too dependant on, and WiFi so, what more do you want! Just relax and unwind. Your hosts will try to help you :-) Oh, and there is free, on-site parking - a real bonus is this town.

We were a party of 16 and had the whole house for a weekend to celebrate several big birthdays. We were warmly welcomed and the house was perfect for our needs. All eight bedrooms were well equipped, immaculately clean and very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. There are great views of the sea and it is well positioned to visit local attractions. Dogs are allowed and there were lots of toys and games for the children. Will definitely visit again!

Just returned from a long weekend staying at Laston House with our 2 grown up daughters, their partners and our 2 year old grandson. We loved this hotel. The building is stunning both inside and out with lots of character and great attention to detail. Beautifully decorated and furnished. We had 3 rooms which all had sea views, number 5 had incredible views from 2 large windows. Our 2 year old grandson was made to feel welcome with his place setting at the breakfast table. There was also a large communal lounge that had lots of toys, books and games, perfect for a rainy day. The rooms were spotless, good showers and fluffy towels. We loved the attention to detail with biscuits in the room every day, lovely mugs for tea and coffee. Breakfast was good too. Location was perfect, just a short walk to the harbour and a local pub. I would recommend this hotel for both couples with or without children. Thank you to Greg and Abbie and good luck with your triathlon next week. 😊

I have given this a ‘very good’ review,because it is a lovely grand house,comfortable bed,very clean,fab breakfast,lovely views…however … there is an overpowering musty smell as soon as you walk into the beautiful hall and also in our room on the ground floor.The bedroom furniture is old,presumably in keeping with the character of the house, but as it smelled so musty,we were unable to hang our clothes in the wardrobe. I understand that is an old house and I suppose its inevitable, but our stay there wasnt as enjoyable as it should have been as we were reluctant to spend much time there.Would not return there purely for this reason
