The Graystoke
Ranked #18 of 20 Hotels in Ilfracombe
Reviewed July 25, 2010

Just back from a 3 night stay at the Graystoke. Booked through booking.com and didnt bother to read any reviews before booking!
On arrival we were greeted by Gabi who made us feel very welcome. We were showed to our room which was airy, light and exceptionally clean!!
We booked a superior room and it felt like home from home.
The hotel is perfectly located about a 15 minute walk to the harbour - far enough away for the sea gulls to not keep you awake!!
Breakfast was a choice of a full english, fried, poached or scrambled eggs on toast, vegetarian or a "light" option. It was delish!!! There was also a selection of cereals and fresh fruit.
I would recommend this hotel with no hesitation and will definatley return should we visit north devon again

We have stayed at the Graystoke Hotel quite a few times, each time in a different room. All the rooms were very spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. The food is excellent, served by Gabi and cooked by John. We have been made very welcome every time we have stayed there right from the first visit. We would recommend this hotel highly as we cannot fault it in any way.We have enjoyed every break there and will certainly go again.

Our recommendation, of the Graystoke Hotel, is based upon the experiences of my wife and myself over several visits each year for the last five years. The welcome and the attention given by John and Gabi are second to none.
The Graystoke is within walking distance of Ilfracombe town centre and it is also on bus routes to the surrounding areas. There is car parking on site.
John is an experienced chef and the food is excellent in quality and quantity.
Graystoke is kept in tiptop order throughout. It is comfortable, relaxing and we have enjoyed every visit. It is a gem.

A very fine place, offering a friendly welcome and service, impeccable and nicely decorated rooms, a rich breakfast selection, located close enough to the town center for a short walk. We definitely recommend this place, and book it again.
