We have just spent five nights at the Marine court, and couldn't praise it enough. From the moment we stepped through the door, we received a warm welcome, everything from the fabulous breakfast, to the little things, like taking our luggage to our rooms, nothing was too much trouble. No wonder this is the number one place to stay in... More

We have just spent two days at the Marine Court Hotel being looked after by Karen and Russ. The place is lovely, spotless with newly renovated rooms and we had a wonderful shower room. The breakfast was fabulous with many choices, home made jams etc. We so enjoyed ourselves. The Hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Harbour so... More

We received a very warm welcome from Russ & Karen, and we were pleased with all facilities here. Our room was spotless, with a big bed and with a lovely sea view and we slept well. Breakfast was scrumptious. We would definitely return here.

We have just come back from a two night break in Ilfracombe where we stayed at the Marine Court and what a wonderful time it has been. Russ and Karen are so welcoming and the standard of the rooms is excellent. Russ does a mean breakfast. Can't recommend this place too highly. Well done and thanks.

Stayed for a two night break mid September. Russ and Karen the perfect hosts, a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation is spotless throughout, room was modern and extremely comfortable with a great seaview. Breakfast.....I don't think I ever stayed anywhere that offers so much choice and delivers such high quality food. Location was perfect, a short... More

Had a lovely stay here. Friendly and helpful owners and staff gave us lots of ideas for brilliant places to visit. Our room was great. Walking distance from the nice restaurants and pubs in the harbour area.

I challenge anyone to find a nicer place to stay!! Karen and Russ have got it bang on. The whole establishment is spotlessly clean, the welcome warm and genuine, the breakfasts are as legendary as other reviews state. The bigger chains would do well to come to the Marine Court to learn how the hospitality trade should perform!!! The little... More

Russ and Karen can't do enough for you. The whole place is spotless and terrific variety of choice for breakfast. Very handy location for the quay and restaurants. Mustn't forget The Thatched Inn straight opposite - Must visit!

From reading other reviews, we had high expectations of Marine Court on a 3 night break. We were not disappointed! Every aspect of this small hotel is high quality. The rooms are well equipped, spotlessly clean and breakfast comes with personal service and a range of quality ingredients. Russ & Karen made us feel very welcome from the moment we... More
