In our visit to Devon, me and fiancée decided to stay in a traditional b and b run by Heather and her lovely funny dog. She made us feel very welcome and looked after us. We also loved the fry up and the porridge. Victorian style room with a comfy bed. The scenario is lovely and peaceful, coming from London... More

I had a really comfortable stay at the Strathmore guest house. It is full of character and it was great to be met by Poppy the little dog. The room was comfortable, bathroom well equipped and breakfast delicious. Alas I was in Ilfracombe to attend my grandmother's funeral, and had an emotional moment before leaving to go to the crematorium,... More

I was unexpectedly in town and in need of a room for a night. What I got was a lovely welcoming host in this beautiful Victorian house. The room was very comfortable and I slept like a baby. Breakfast was brilliant and got me ready for another day travelling. An excellent place to stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Strathmore is a 4* AA Gold Awarded Licenced Victorian Guest House. With 8 individually designed bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. We are located just a 10 minute stroll to the town centre and not much further to the sea front. Strathmore is lovingly looked after and still retains some of the origional features. I cater for singles, couples and families alike, with small well behaved dogs also welcome (charges may apply). Should the weather allow, there is a selcuded terraced garden to the rear of the property, where guests can relax. I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to Strathmore at some point in the future. Heather ... more   less
