“A Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We stayed in the Garden Room which was a self-contained room off the main building. It was a large, modern room with a large bathroom and its own balcony. There is also a swimming pool in the garden. The breakfasts were ace and were well above what we had experienced at other places.

The hotel is a short walk from the main town but is not unreasonable and it is close to the coastal walk which is also nice.

We had an excellent time there and it was probably the best place we have stayed at. Would recommend to others.

Lovely welcome, Nicky went out of her way to make our stay special. Wonderful grounds, excellent pool - superb value and a good breakfast too :-)
Bathroom was a tad on the small side but the room was spacious and comfortable.

Just back from a stay at Epchris House. When i first tried to book the owner Nicki didn't think she could fit us in, thank heaven she managed it. We just couldn't have asked for better. Spotlessly clean, wonderful gardens and just such lovely friendly people, of which nothing is too much trouble. We had a 90 year old disabled lady with us and every effort was made to make it easier for her. You are made to feel so welcome and relaxed and until you have had breakfast there you just haven't lived. When we go back to Ilfracombe we will definitely be staying there again.

Room Tip: If you need a room for disabled, do ask about the ground floor suite. Also very dog friendly

Epchris House is a stunning place full of character set in spacious grounds and with wonderful hosts.We were upgraded to the premier room which was spacious with a fabulous en suite, mega comfy bed and a leather settee. The breakfast as previously mentioned on other reviews is indeed legendary, full english, plenty of it and the bacon is to die for!! We have stayed in many hotels and guest houses over the years and this one is top of the tree,
Thank you Nicky and family for a great stay

Room Tip: Epchris set in a quiet part of town so any room you get will be a brilliant one

We booked the Epchris for us & all our close family & friends who were going down to Ilfracombe from Manchester for our wedding and I don't think I could have picked a better place. Nicky & her family were so helpful, especially when my hairdresser cancelled 2 wks before the big day, she had me sorted out in a matter of hours. Nothing was too big an ask & every little detail was thought about to make me feel special on my big day. Plus when the weather wasn't too good, the beautiful inside helped make my photo's just as amazing. We will definately be back for many an anniversary xx

Room Tip: The new garden room is a must for any bride-to-be, loads of room for your dress & all your bride...

I stayed here for a friends wedding. The rooms were all clean and the owners were more than helpful and could not do enough for us, even handing out tissues on the way to the wedding. The breakfast was also fantastic! If i ever go back to Ilfracombe, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
