Wentworth House
Ranked #27 of 52 Ilfracombe B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 13, 2011

Stayed for three nights BB and Evening meal with our 20 month old daughter. The room was very large and comfortable with its own heating and was nice and warm. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and had some nice touches.

The family were fantastic, especially with our daughter. By far the most child friendly hotel we have stayed at.

Food was very good, especially the breakfast. One of the best I have found in hotels anywhere.

Will definately return.

Fantastic. Sharon and her Mom are such lovely people and made us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble, even my partner's fussiness about eating breakfast. He asked for something which wasn't on the menu, and she was only too happy to cook something different for him. It was greatly appreciated!!!

The room was huge and very warm, (we had to turn the radiator down a bit), as it was quite cold outside when we stayed there, it was so nice to be warm. The room was very clean with a great freeview tv and the bed was comfy with good linen. Ensuite was massive with a shower and a good strong handle, which was fantastic as I have a slight disability.

The bar was great, and the drinks were reasonably priced too. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone!

Thanks to Sharon, Geoff and Sharon's Mom for a great holiday!

I have stayed at the Wentworth House numerous times now whenever I visit relatives I always stay here.

Each visit is always a plesent stay, the rooms are very clean and comfy with tea/coffee making facilites with freeview tv's, nothing like borrowing a hair dryer iron etc is no bother at all.

The breakfast is lovely so much choice and everything is so fresh and you get good portions no skimping.

Sharon and Geoff and the rest of the family make you feel so welcome and nothing is to much trouble, I was very lucky that i found Wentworth House on my 1st visit to Ilfracombe as i would honestly say that I would never stay anywhere else, it really is like a home from home.

Comfortable rooms with well stocked tea & coffee facility, a must in our case, friendly service, briliant breakfast, in a really good location for the town itself. All in all nothing too much trouble, keep up the good work

Had a 3 night stay at this lovely Hotel B&B. The Hosts Geoff & Sharon made us very welcome and provided good ideas of places to visit. Geoffs 'Full English' breakfast was lovely - all freshly cooked and NOT swimming in grease or fat. He even made sure the hot food was served on a hot plate. At Breakfast Sharon offered decaf coffee for my wife having noticed we had used the decaf sachet of coffee in our bedroom (well spotted Sharon) which was a nice touch.
The location is very close to the town centre and one of the main roads into Ilfracombe so getting there was not a problem. The Hosts have clearly put a lot of time, money and effort into making the whole house a really nice place to stay with double glazing to keep out any noise and wind, and a new LCD TV in our room with Freeview and a built in DVD player.
There was ample parking on site also.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and would book it again if we returned to that area.
