The Hampton's Hotel is situated in the beautiful village of Ilfracombe, the hotel is on top of a steep hill so the views of the sea and hills are fantastic. There are so many positives about this hotel but I thought for the price you pay it is important for people to also know the negatives.

Positives:
-Lovely, welcoming staff
-Good breakfast
-Beautiful room with great views
-Very clean with special touches
-5 min walk to the centre of town
-Your own key to the front door so there is no time restriction on coming back from a night out

Negatives:
-Limited parking
-Steep hills to walk home
-No lightning on the drive at night whilst walking up the steep hill to the hotel front door, trips/falls could easily happen
-The shower in the room was either freezing cold or boiling hot
-The bathroom toiletries were not stocked up upon arrival
-The toilet seat would not stay up (for the man)
-Very thin walls so you can hear people in the next room and they can hear you!

These are all minor negatives that can be easily adapted, we had a really lovely stay and the service we received made up for everything else. We went for a wedding at tunnels beach which was stunning, if you are going for a wedding there too I advise you to wear flats and pack your heels in your handbag as the hills are very steep! Enjoy.

I stayed here the eve of my wedding at Tunnels beach in October 2012. I arrived with my mum and friends. it was extremely relaxing before the wedding and after a lovely meal out in Ilfracombe i relaxed in the huge free standing bathtub. I stayed in the Chantilly room, which was such a good choice as many brides have pre wedding photos, what a beautiful backdrop this was to all the photos. The owner was great i had an amazing vegetarian breakfast on the morning of the wedding. Then the videographer, photographer and make up artist arrived, we were the most relaxed bridal party ever, everyone commented on how there was no stress and we were all so happily relaxed. I think the relaxed beautiful hotel setting contributed to this, the room had stunning views as we all took turns to have our make up done sat in the bay windows. When returning in the early hours with new husband he was also impressed with this boutique hotel. The location is very close to tunnels beach so perfect as wedding accommodation. We will definitely come back and stay for future wedding anniversarys, must book soon cant wait to visit again its now a place of such amazing memories.

Room Tip: Chantilly, stunning backdrop to any pre wedding getting ready photos.

We absolutely loved this boutique hotel. It had a lovely feel to it, the owners were really friendly and the room was exquisite. We couldn't fault this hotel, I would recommend to anyone who appreciates stylish decor and a gorgeous sea-view. The Bath added even more sumptuous luxury and to top it off the breakfast was delicious, all local produce! Best Hotel I've stayed in and real value for money.

Room Tip: Chantilly room has a wonderful roll top bath and felt very luxurious.

Took my wife Verity to see "Verity" in Ilfracombe and decided to stay here. Two of my better decisions this year. The hotel was just what we needed,quiet luxurious and spacious. We were warmly greeted and shown to our room,well informed on restaurants and local goings on.The expectations were high and well met. Really liked walking round the sights,and sampling the good food and drink to be had. Verity liked "Verity" but the jury is still out for me. It is a magnificent structure whatever... Thoroughly recommend the Hamptons,we parked up the top without problem and walked town and back several times which in itself was pleasant. Do try "Chimes" restaurant,up there with the best.

Room Tip: Plenty of space in suite,

We loved this place! Just returned from our holiday and wanted thank our amazing hosts for the best stay ever. We were there for 5 days with 2 small children and it was so relaxing! Fantastic breakfast, beautiful accommodation with the comfiest beds with heavenly bedding = great night sleeps. Nothing was too much and the children were welcome to use all the facilities :) DVD's on hand for the couple of hours we needed refuel from visiting the harbour which was only a stone's throw away. Attention to detail was evident wherever you looked and local knowledge was so key to us enjoying our holiday. Perfect location in a perfect accommodation! Thank you xxxxxxxxxx
