The room was comfortable and well equipped. Bathroom bright and clean.
Nothing to dislike as everything was spot on.
Good location Friendly people
Bit dated & tired
Nice Place, Excellent Breakfast
Great staff and food.
Couldn't find the remote for the tv in room until the morning.
The hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly, the stay was very enjoyable.
We put on our reservation that we were vegetarian. It would have been appreciated to have vegetarian sausages as an option for breakfast.
Food very good and plenty of choice. Very clean and staff helpful and friendly but also laid back
Bed was very comfortable but a little short my partners feet were hanging over the end.
breakfast was really good , location was good !
Shower head needed descaling ! Bed was to soft ( I like a firm bed )
Staff were very friendly & helpful. Room was clean, iron, kettle & heater available in room. Breakfast was good, hot fresh good. Great location near shopping centre, beautiful gardens nearby. 5 minute walk to seafront.
Shower was not powerful enough. Dining room was a little small when it was full.
Staff were friendly was a great place to stay
Like any hotel bit noisy
We have stayed at Ilfracombe House a few times and have always had a warm welcome. Comfortable room, and good selection at the buffet breakfast. Within easy walking distance of the seafront and pier.
Room was good,also the staff.
The noise from road. A few items missing from the breakfast bar
Everything about the hotel was great it was like a home from home loved it
Really friendly, helpful staff. Lovely and clean rooms. Peaceful area. Would happily book again.
Cooked breakfast is self service but that is just a personal issue :-)
Staff: Friendly & approachable Nothing too much trouble Knowledgeable about resort & facilities Breakfast: excellent food, well cooked
Decor: dated but hey for the money how can they afford to upgrade? Breakfast: alot of waste as customers pile plates up but leave vast amounts of food!!!
Lovely reception from the gentleman on duty that evening. I wanted to leave early to get some photo's and this was no problem. I was given a key and could come and go as I pleased. Fifteen minute walk to the pier. Lovely hot powerful shower, very clean, lovely decor and fantastic breakfast. Would definitely recommend it. Thank You, Liz Dolan
I would like bigger towels if that was possible. Thank You.
Staff very pleasant sheets and towels clean
Building and decor very shabby, carpets stained etc price through booking.com extortionately high, leading to false expectations of quality, staff were embarrassed by our price - AA 4 stars ???
The coziness of the room and the breakfast.
Ideal for us - this was the second time we stayed here (Wedding Anniversary on both occasions)
This his a good value hotel with parking at the rear. We had a down floor twin bed room at the back which had all we wanted and it was clean and tidy
GREAT LOCATIONS AND FRIENDLY STAFF AND HELPFUL. LOVELY BREAKFAST AND NICE CLEAN ROOMS
PILLOWS AND BEDS COULD BE NICER BUT OK FOR THE MONEY. THINK BEDROOMS BIT TIRED BUT HEY IT WAS FINE JUST IMPROVEMENTS COULD BE MADE.
excellent hotel great staff, just a little expensive
All of it.
Breakfast portions were large,Dining room clean
