We stayed for just one night, Hotel owners very helpful with parking advice etc. Lovely Bar.
Breakfast was delicious, everything one could want. Our room had a lovely view, comfortable and the best shower of our UK trip. This is real value for money.

We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we entered, the views from the lounge and dining room were stunning but the best one was from our room, at the top of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of going to Ilfracombe, North Devon and you get access the internet in the lounge and bar, bargain :)

Stayed here for one night and was met by Sharon on arrival who showed us around the building. We had a room on the top floor with a view of the harbour.

You can walk to the harbour in about 5 minutes where there are bars and restaurants.

The breakfast in the morning was also very good .

Would recommend to anyone thinking of staying in Ilfracombe.

Room Tip: Get there early to find a parking space.

My wife and I have just spent 4 nights at the Collingdale. The Collingdale is a very tall terrace property. Access to the rooms is via the staircase only. There is no lift. We were met at the door by Sharon who not only shows you to your room but gives a comprehensive guide to local attractions and places to eat. There is a very comfortable guest lounge and a small but well stocked bar. Bedrooms are very clean and tidy. Fully serviced every day with all the expected toileteries. Book a room with a sea view if possible. Stunning views over the harbour and cliffs. 10 minutes easy walk via the harbour into town. Breakfast choice is very good. Try the kippers with a poached egg. Very yummy. Parking can be a problem as the Collingdale does not have a car park. Road side parking is available but is always busy. There is a nearby car park which needs a small overnight fee. Parking passes are available from the tourist information centre in town. Worth considering.
Would we visit again. Without doubt. All B+B owners should visit here and see how it should be.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The top floor room was very comfortable with a great view. Worth the walk up the stairs. Sharon was an excellent hostess who provided superb breakfasts for us-we certainly skipped lunch ! The pub opposite provided us with an excellent meal.

We found the walk into & back from town very easy.

We would certainly return in the future.
