“Long weekend Stay”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

From the outside the hotel looks tired, having said that Malcolm & his staff were very friendly and informative. A good English breakfast served every morning, if you wanted more tea and toast there was never a problem, it would have been nice had there been a choice of wholemeal bread. Rooms and beds comfortable, we didn't have a shower in our room, had to sit in the bath using the hand held shower tap. Location great for Tunnels Beach and easy walking distance to town and harbour. The only noise issue were Seagulls. Hotel car park space is limited. We were told where to park without restrictions and found a space with no problems. Eating out, try the Tapas restaurant excellent.

stayed here for three nights to attend a wedding at the nearby tunnels venue. Hotel room was very clean as was the hotel. Unfortunately the room was not set out in a practical way. Hairdryer nowhere near a mirror, and it was non detachable. No full length mirror and when you are getting ready for a wedding that is quite important. Bed was awful it was like sleeping on a slope !!. No shower only bath. On the positve side, staff very attentive and polite. Breakfast average but freshly cooked. Not a hotel for a longer stay....your back would not cope ! Oh yes and a ancient lift that does not work late at night, and you need to let yourself in after 10pm .....(Car park very small)

Room Tip: go for lower floor because of lift

Stayed at the Bath House Hotel over Easter weekend, upon arrival the outside looked somewhat tired and a little rundown so I was not expecting much. Pleasantly surprised when we walked into the reception, decor tidy and area clean. Check in process very easy and staff very polite. Room decorated with modern furniture and colours, windows needed a good clean as obviously a problem with the local seagulls leaving their mark but view ok overlooking the car park.
Bathroom clean, well designed with bath and shower head, showerhead not to be used as a 'shower' in hotel notes as it causes water to leak into room below, so why not just put a shower curtain up considering most people like to have a shower? odd logic and less water useage but it was fine, we just thought it was strange.
Tea and coffee available with plenty of each. Only downside of the room was the mattress, furniture in room looked very new, strong and sturdy but the mattress was about 3 inches thick, thus causing a rather restless nights sleep as unable to get comfortable. Why spend money on renovating a room and then scrimp on the most important aspect and the one thing people need.
Breakfast good with cereals and full English available and check out at 11 a great time so no mad rush first thing in the morning.

All in all a great stay but please please please buy better mattresses.

Booked room after reviewing website.
Not clear to find, lack of signage.
On booking in was informed that the restaurant was closed that night but food was available in a couple of pubs a few minutes walk. After a ten minute walk found the advised pubs. After a meal a walk back in the rain.
No showers in rooms, just hand held showers that you are advised not to use for a shower and informed of damage costs in water gets onto floor and through ceiling! Had to jam paper into door to stop rattling.
Attempted to make cup of tea twice in the morrning but gave up due to milk tubs being curdled.
Negotiated an early breakfast 0730 and asked for mushrooms that were not very edible possibly due to being tinned.
Room was clean, bed reasonable, cold during the night. Place a bit shabby with an ancient lift not to be used after 2200. Will not be returning.

We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. Lovely clean room with a jet bath. Good sauna and steam shower.

Close to all of Ilfracombe has to offer and close to all the good beaches.

We had a very relaxing break. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Had an evening meal on the last night which was excellent quality and very good value. Not a place to go if your looking for turkey and tinsel in October. I wasn't -so it was perfect!
