Julienne was an excellent hostess. Beds were comfortable (room 5) and the room was spacious.
Some traffic noise.
Juliene was a joy,nothing to much trouble 5*
Next time we would book a larger room and the stairs were a problem for me
The best guest house we've ever stayed in, lovely comfortable and well equipped room, excellent breakfast, very welcoming and friendly owners.
Fabulous guest house. Our room was great!. Landlady was fabulous and so was the breakfast. I would definately recommend it.
The Property itself,beautifully decorated very clean. The breakfast was lovely, plentiful and at a sensible time.Bed and pillows were really comfortable.Very nice friendly and easy going owners who know their business.
Slightly noisy at night and early in the morning in our rooms in the front of the house because of the road.It didn't last all night and we did sleep well.
We arrived a little earlier than expected but were welcomed warmly and assistance was immediately offered with our luggage. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Julienne and Peter are a very friendly approachable couple.
Whilst it was not an issue for my husband or myself - the steps leading to the property may cause a problem if you were disabled.
Staff very friendly Location Very relaxing
Friendliness of owners, cleanliness, breakfast and size of the room.
Not a thing.
Comfortable rooms Friendly welcome Great breakfast
Quality of food and choice of breakfast Friendliness of hosts
Jeanette was so friendly and helpful from the initial email and had gone to so much trouble to cater for our breakfast dietary needs. Our room was huge with a massive bed and sofa. There was a fridge stocked full of reasonably priced drinks and biscuits were replenished everyday! There was a lovely view and a fan provided. The room was gorgeous, pretty furniture and bedding. Breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious with homemade marmalades and as much toast as you could manage! Jeanette was friendly and interested in what you would be doing that day, with plenty of info and recommendations if needed. It was lovely coming back from a long day to such a friendly face! It's an easy walk into the town and harbour and a short drive to Saunton and WOolacombe - perfect location. We would definitely stay again and have already recommended it to others.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable few days , made to feel very welcome and at home, nothing was too much trouble , Julienne is a really lovely person and her husband dies a great breakfast !!
- Large, clean & comfortable modern room (Room 5) - Delicious Breakfast - Friendly welcome - Good Value for Money
Very welcoming, very clean with excellent facilities, breakfast good choice of menu with lovely homemade marmalades, preserve and fruit compote,and wide choice of cooked items. Also good parking facility.
Only due to the excessive humidity and heat and as a result having to have windows open the traffic was a little noisy.
It was good to have real cool milk in flask . This was kept in small fridge that was packed with a good variety of drinks. Breakfast was well cooked and a wide variety was offered.
The fact we couldn't stay longer.
The room was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay
Fantastic hosts. Best i have been to in the last 20 years Keith
Beautiful room and they had thought of everything you could possibly want or need
A beautiful Victorian House, hosted by the lovely Julienne and her husband. A warm welcome, superb room and tasty home made food contributed to a superb stay. We would certainly recommend to friends and family.
Just a shame that the house is not just a little bit closer to the sea and the lovely harbour. For those of us who are not so nimble, and who had to drive, parking within Ilfracombe was difficult.
The owner was very welcoming and willing to please. She was very organised and knew her guests needs very well. The standard of hygiene was good and the food was also of good value.
As we were there for a week we should have booked a larger room for more comfort during the evening and daytime.
helpfulness at all times, plus that little extra
Everything ! Julienne was the perfect host for our lovely 3 day stay will definitely return in the future.
Absolutely Nothing !
friendly service from the moment we arrived.clean comfort room and the food was excellent. we would recommend it and will stay there agian next time we are that way.
