“Late Breakfast.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

We read the other reviews and thought this place sounds great.
On the plus side lovely detached house with great views and peaceful location.

But road to the house is full of potholes and unlite.
Car park is good size but that too is unlaid and full of potholes.
Breakfast is the latest and shortest time span we have ever had it 8.30-9.30. ( I know people have families etc who are running it, but when you are running a business, it is all about serving the customer)
As previous customer said Room 3 is not as good as the others. The attached bathroom is very small with no heating.
Building works are going on and it is noisy if you want to spend some time in your room during the day.

Laston House is a beautiful old building and in a good location. Very comfortable room and bathroom and a very good breakfast. We appreciated the family feel of Laston House. Although restoration work is ongoing outside it is not intrusive. Car parking is available which is a must in Ilfracombe.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms for easy access. Easy parking at the hotel which is a must in Ilfracombe.

My wife and I have stayed here on several occasions, usually arriving in the Spring and Autumn and have found the owners to be welcoming and charming. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast good and nothing is too much trouble. We would certainly recommend.

Very welcoming after a long day cycling. The owner made us a welcome cup of tea on arrival. A great night's sleep even though close to the town centre. The breakfast the next day was a home cooked proper breakfast which set us up for cycling the Devon Coast to Coast trail.

Helped us in our need. Felt so let down with another local place, this place was like sun shinning through grey clouds. Lovely room, lovely breakfast just 100% place to stay. Hospitality establishments all need a couple like these owners. Thanks again.

Just had a relaxing 5 day stay at Laston House. The choice of breakfast food was great, and it tasted great! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They went out of their way to help, even when my husband was unwell and needed to have a doctor's visit. We really appreciated their advice. Our room was clean and comfortable, although we would have loved an upstairs room with a view, but we were too late with our booking.The views are great even from downstairs, and
you just need to step outside to see what a lovely area this is.

Room Tip: Upstairs must have a superior view.
