5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Warm welcome with tray of tea and coffee. Lovely room, warm, tastefully decorated. Great attention to detail and superb breakfast! Adam and his mum were super hosts and made us very welcome. Well situated, great views with short walk into town.

Really wonderful hotel stay, made even enjoyable and relaxling by the hotel's owner Adam. Norbury House is a home from home, a relaxed, comfortable vibe that pervades every room. The decor has a lovely boutique feel, with lots of interesting retro pieces and objects dotted around the house. We didn't have a huge amount of time to explore Ilfracombe as we were here to work, but Adam gave us a great insight into what there is to see and do. We hope to come back again soon!

We stayed at Norbury House in September 2012 as part of a wedding party, our stay was fantastic! Norbury House definitely added to the overall experience of our time in Devon.

Adam and Paula truly have made a home from home and made us and the whole wedding part feel welcome and relaxed. The atmosphere at Norbury House is exactly what we look for in a B&B and the addition of Bovril the lovely labrador really made for a warm and relaxing stay.

Our room was excellent, fantastic bed and modern decor, we had a TV in our room for the morning after the wedding when we didn't feel like venturing far and the shower was great. Breakfast was delicious with a great selection.

Adam and Paula (and Bovril) really did make our stay in Devon fantastic and we would return in a heartbeat!

We went to Norbury House for three nights in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Each day we walked for between 2 and 4 hours, exploring neighboring towns and the beautiful moors. One day we took Bovril, the guest house owners' dog, with us (He is a friendly black labrador). We had breakfast in the hotel which consisted of very fresh fruit, delicious yogurt and a variety of cooked breakfasts. The town is small and interesting, one or two days in Ilfracombe is probably enough. We went to a gourmet pizza place called Relish and an Italian (which I don't remember the name of). Both were excellent. There are numerous nearby neighboring towns which all deserve a visit.
The area is beautiful, peaceful and interesting and a most welcome change from our usual UK visit to London.

Room Tip: The website gives a very clear and honest account of each room. The hotel is a beautiful grand old h...

After a hard days walking on the south-west coast path we were greeted by Adam with a wonderful refreshing cup of tea. The breakfast was great with plenty of choice and Adam was the perfect host - we all thouroughly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here or my birthday weekend and couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Adam and Paula are terrific hosts who provided a scrumptious breakfast, recommended great restaurants to eat for our evening meal, organised taxis and suggested things to o and places to go.
An added bonus was borrowing Bovril the majestic labrador for a coastal walk.
All in all highly recommended and would visit again.
Thank you very very much Adam and Paula!

Paula and Adam run a wonderful bed and breakfast, everything was spot on.
The lovely lounge and honesty bar were a real treat and a great place to relax and unwind. Breakfast on both days of our stay was of the highest quality and the room was spacious and we loved the decor.
Both Paula and Adam were helpful and recommended several excellent restaurants in town. Don't be put off by previous comments, Ilfracombe has some quality and interesting places to eat, and a lot of effort is being put in to lifting the town's fortunes for the better.
Nor bury House is a great place to stay and real value for what you get.
