Stayed for one night, very comfortable hotel. Owners and staff warm and welcoming, gave the impression that nothing was to much trouble. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices. Would recommend and will certainly stay again.

Tim, Tripadvisor Review, May 2019
The room we had was really big with a nice en-suite. The owners were friendly and welcoming. They have a bar in the hotel and a really nice place to meet people in the evening. About 10 minute walk to town but a nice walk along the coast. Definitely recommend this hotel and will be back!

AA INSPECTION REPORT – NOVEMBER 2018
”The purpose of this routine day inspection was to re-assess The Ilfracombe House against AA Quality Standards and to review scoring in line with any changes that may have been made since our last visit.
– Externally the property is well cared for with clear signage and appropriate lighting levels in the evening.
– The rear car park remains well maintained too.
– No changes to report to the public areas other than plans to replaster the corridors and replace the carpet in the fullness of time.
– Most bedrooms and bathrooms have been fully refurbished. New bespoke furniture, which helps to maximise available space has been introduced, new coordinated décor, new handmade curtains, new carpets, new lighting and new coffee trays. All of a very good quality and of a more contemporary style.
– The bathrooms have gone through a similar upgrade process. The new showers are a great addition and, I am sure, much appreciated by guests.
– The rest of the rooms will be upgraded in due course.
– A diligent approach to cleanliness was clear with no lapses found on this occasion.
– As a result of this positive inspection a Four Star classification with a Guest Accommodation designator has been retained. We wish you well and look forward to returning during the next cycle of inspections”.
STAR RATING: 4-STAR Guest Accommodation, 23rd November 2018
We went to a show at the Cliffs Pavilion and our friends had booked us into the Ilfracombe House Hotel via Booking.com some months before. I requested a room with a walk in shower, which we were given, and the room was excellent (Room 9). Breakfast was great, buffet style but fried and poached eggs were cooked to order. On checking the hotels own website and talking to the manager/owner we could have saved at least £10 by booking direct, plus you can discuss any specific room needs. The hotel and room were very clean and the team extremely helpful. Great location for the going to a show and staying over. We didn’t have an evening meal as we ate pre-show.
