Anne - Marie and Barry, the owners, are welcoming and friendly. They have planned the guest house with meticulous care - with the guests in mind, which makes it a lovely place to stay.

The breakfast was really nice too - hot food and a buffet with cheese and fruits etc and the cost of this is included in the price of the room, which we much prefer. There is also coffee, tea and biscuits in the room and bottled water which we appreciated.

The guest house is light and airy and - very important to us, clean.

We wish Anne- Marie & Barry every success with their business and hope other visitors continue to be impressed.

Room Tip: They will try and give you a room to suit your needs, so make it clear what they are.

Anne- Marie and Barry make me feel like staying at home although I am 7000 miles away from home... I have my daily oatmeal breakfast as usual; I comb my hair every morning as usual. But this is not possible without the great help from Anne-Marie... You can find out why if you check-in Wildercombe and have a chat with Anne

We stayed here over New Years and found the hospitality excellent! Communication with the hotel prior to our arrival was very helpful offering useful advice on what Ilfracombe had to offer. The room was warm and very spacious, in particular the modern bathroom. Cleanliness was first class and location great- only a short taxi ride to the town. I would certainly recommend this beautiful hotel to others. Thank you for a pleasant stay!

We stayed here over new years and found the room to be first class and the service to be first class as well. We booked room 6, which was very spacious and had great views over Ilfracombe. It had a great bathroom with a fantastic shower. We missed breakfast on the first day and they were kind enough to bring it to our room later in the morning. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone!

A truly luxury stay. The hospitality shown by Anne-Marie and Barry was very welcome. We needed disabled friendly accomodation and were delighted with the facilities on offer. A memorable 2 night holiday. Will return in the summer to sample the sunshine. Bleddyn and Karen.

Room Tip: Room 1 has a wet room which is ideal for disabled guests.

We stayed one night last week. The hotel is in a well renovated Victorian house, is very welcoming, well decorated and comfortable. The breakfast included a wide choice of fresh fruit, cereals, Continental and cooked English.
