Stayed at the Collingdale for three nights as a couple looking for a relaxing break. We were welcomed by Sharon who works tirelessly to make sure you have everything you want during your stay, even recommending local restaurants. We had booked for Bed and Breakfast and the food was delicious. My only concern about the Collingdale is the amount of... More

Perfect base for a short (or long) break in Ilfracombe. Our room was at the top of the house which involved a few stairs but had a lovely view of the harbour and surrounding countryside. The Collingdale deserves its reputation for comfort, good food and amenities. It has an informal feel while providing very high levels of service and attention.... More

I decided to visit North Devon with only 3 weeks notice therefore as you can imagine was somewhat limited for choice in this busy summer period. I was sceptical of what would be left however I need not have worried with The Collingdale. It is a lovely guest house which is well presented. I had a family room (ensuite) which... More

Fabulous hotel with lovely views of the harbour. Short walk down into Ilfracombe with plenty of bars and restaurants. Breakfast is as good as all the other reviews say with a fish option. Sharon and Daryl were very friendly and helpful. Would stay again. Sharon and Andy

This is a very good place to stay in Ilfracombe. It is ideally situated with lovely views from most bedrooms and is reasonably priced. The room we had was at the top of the house, quite small with a slanting ceiling and a very small bathroom but was very comfortable and spotless. There is quite a climb up several flights... More
