We stayed here on a shearings mid week break, we had a lovely room very large & overlooking the illfracombe gardens the room looked as if it had recently been decorated so was clean & bright. I think the bathroom was due to be updated as although ok the bath surround was cracked but otherwise ok.
Breakfast was a bit hetic as only 1hour given for this between 8-9 so did become like a cattle market for people wanting cereal & juice as everyone fought to get their cereal! the poor staff were rushed off their feet bringing cooked breakfast drinks & toast to us, it is a wonder we didn't all suffer from indigestion the way we had to rush!
The evening entertainment was ok but we have enjoyed better but ok.
One point if going with Shearings for an inclusive break make sure you get a free cream tea from the hotel on your free afternoon not everyone was told about this & the manager was not at all helpful & couldn't explain why this was!
Apart from this we enjoyed our stay

- Situated on the level seafront of this hugely popular Victorian seaside resort stands the welcoming Dilkhusa Grand Hotel. The hotel was originally a private house, bought by a Raj at the turn of the last century as a gift to his wife - Dilkhusa translates from Hindustani roughly as ‘House of the Happy Heart!’ The hotel overlooks the picturesque Runnymede gardens and is close to the Landmark theatre which attracts many national acts. It is also just a short walk from the bustling 10th-century harbour where Britain’s most famous living artist, Damien Hirst, owns a restaurant.

A spacious and comfortable entertainments suite provides the ideal setting in which to sit back and enjoy the acts at this friendly and sociable hotel. ... more less
