“First Class Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband and I stayed for one night on Good Friday and we were bowled over with the hospitality that Richard and Annette provided.
After a gruelling 9 hour drive, we were made to feel welcome very quickly and spend the whole wonderful evening in the cosy bar with the owners and other guests chatting.
The excellent customer service started before we even arrived with a text wishing us a safe journey and even when we left a text to say thank you for staying.
Sea Breeze understands customer service and other establishments could learn a thing or two from these little but lovely gestures.

The beds were cosy and wonderful and we had the best nights sleep. Its was quiet and warm, just perfect.
The breakfast which you order the night before was great and we enjoyed the relaxed friendly comfortable atmosphere.

Richard and Annette are perfect hosts to run a B&B as they have it spot on.
Thank you for a very enjoyable evening and we cannot wait to return in the summer.
This is by far one of the best B&B's that we have stayed in.

Clare and Mark

My son & his fiancee are planning to get married in Woolacombe, we stayed here for only one night, but will be staying there again as we have a few more visits to make. We were made very welcome, the breakfast was very tasty, with a large variety of non cooked options. Rooms comfortable. It felt as if we were staying with friends.

Sea Breeze was a comfy and welcoming bed and breakfast and provided a great base from which to head out and explore Ilfracombe.

My partner and I enjoyed our stay and found the room had a great view.

The proprietors recommended a good taxi service and places to eat.

We're thinking of staying again next year.

Just a quick thank you to Richard & Annette for making our stay so lovely, they where very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was lovely, our only regret is we couldn't stay longer :-( but next time we visit Ilfracombe we would definitely stay here again.

We have just got back from our stay at this amazing victorian guest house.As a female couple with a bit of an age gap we are used to people giving us this odd look when they see us for the first time, however not this time i felt so comfortable and not judged at all which i have to say it amazing and i really aprechate.
I love older buildings they are full of character and have fab features and this one did not dissapoint. we were in room 9 at the Top. Even tho we were at the top the steps were easy to get up and down. when we arrived we were greated by Richard who was really friendly and helpful, he pointed out great places to eat gave us a map and helped us out. We met annette shortly afterwards she is also friendly and keeps the place clean and tidy. Our room was great had everything we needed there is even a fully stocked fridge and basket full of treats which are fairly priced. Breakfast was great and i am sadly going to miss it! I can taste thos sausages now YUMMY!!! Amazing cook! really enjoyed it! just the right amount as well i didnt leave anything on my plate.
They also have a bar which looks fab, very well decorated.
Its a nice walk into town and the Tunnels are close by, some people have put on here its far from the town etc. but i think its about right. not to far and not to close. i enjoyed walking there and back, we got a Taxi once because it was pouring with rain. I think i have covered everything i can. but to some things up. This is one of the best guest houses i have ever been in they are so friendly and helpful we cant wait to go back.

Sea Breeze is a fairly priced hotel with a warm welcome. The building is large and Victorian, and has been knocked about over the years to be used for various purposes no doubt, and some of the finishing is a bit rough. The room we had was quite large with a shower room built into the room. The walls were wood-chipped and the ceiling badly repaired, but the bed was comfortable. It was clean and the breakfast was excellent. More B & B than hotel really, but perfectly acceptable. We would stay there again

Thank you for taking the time to add a review for Sea Breeze House.
After reading this review we have come to the conclusion that you initially typed this hastily on your computer and probably on reflection you may have chosen your words more carefully i.e. knocked about and rough?, The room that you stayed in is in good decorative order in a neutral colour pallet, which many previous guests have enjoyed.
For the benefit of future guests who read this review, we would like to add that our beautiful Victorian House built in 1885, has been sympathetically adapted for the 21st century over a period of many years previous to our ownership. We still retain many of the original features such as our beautiful period fireplaces, and wonderful stain glass windows and should you return again, as mentioned, we would be more than happy to show all of our other rooms to see if they meet your requirements?
Lastly we would also like to confirm that yes you are correct that we are a guesthouse and not a hotel!!...we never advertise ourselves as a hotel so maybe this was a slight oversight on your behalf? We look forward to your return.
