Went for a 2 night B/B break on a Living Social voucher and whilst it was cheap, it was disappointing. Good points - well it was well located - not far from the Landmark Theatre - and the beds were comfortable and also it was very clean. Also they did have a singer to entertain you on the first night...

We booked a four night break with Travelstyle via UKBreakaways. Like some other reviewers, we were a little concerned when we read some of the comments, but all in all we were pretty satisfied. The staff were friendly and couldn't be more helpful to my disabled husband - allowing us to park his scooter in the lobby and making sure...

Ideal location for visiting Ilfracombe and surrounding area. The hotel is family run and has a nice feel about it. The room we had was immaculately clean and the bathroom suite looked new. The hotel somewhat dated, like most of them in Ilfracombe but good value for money. I have only two complaints: (1) The bed. It felt like it...
