Thank you for your very detailed review Jeetendra, we were delighted to host a London Hotel team build and hope you enjoyed Ilfracombe town and the clay shooting too. It is always most gratifying when peers recognise efforts and offer positive feedback as you guys know what it takes. Hopefully we will welcome you back again - Michael R

Lovely place, lovely food and really lovely people. Our room was cosy and comfortable. We chose to eat in the Hotel Brassiere - the food was excellent. The staff are the cherry on the already super cake, warm, welcoming yet not intrusive.

Good morning I understand you may have mini gym, sauna and steam facilities. Are these complimentary during a stay or is it extra? Thanks

Hello Firstly I just wondered if you have a lift in the hotel? I have booked with the Barnes (Swindon) coach party arriving Mon 3rd April, I am a single person & am enquiringly if any of your newly refurbished rooms are singles? If so am I able to reserve one please? Regards Deb Hayden
Good Morning, There is a lift to all floors but be aware of steps to ground floor rooms. Unfortunately there are no deluxe single rooms available as yet. We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel - Michael R

We are planning a cycle tour and need 2 twin rooms for 1 night for 4 cyclists checking in 08 Oct. Booking site shows availability, but also there are review comments about refurbishment and demolition. Could you confirm if this is likely to be in progress - we don't want to stay in a building site!!
Hello John. Thanks for your question. We are refurbishing (not demolishing) 7 out of our 44 bedrooms. This area of work is on the 1st floor and cordoned off from guests. Any significant work occurs between 10h & 16h during the weekday only so you won't experience any work on the Saturday / Sunday planned stay. As I write there is a small skip to the hotel frontage which is being used for waste materials from the building works. All of our facilities, bar, brasserie, library, lounges and so on are available with no disruption to guests at all. We are very close to the start point of the Coast to Coast route, as you probably know, and frequently host cyclists. We have secure storage for bikes away from the car park plus adequate drying facilities should it be wet. If you wish to speak to us about the works or have any other concerns please call me on 01271 862446 or 07718 936469. And if you book direct with us we can offer a great deal on dinner inclusive rates for the Saturday. I hope that this has answered your query and that we can look forward to you staying with us in October. Best Eliot

Check-in is usually 1500 however if we have the room available we will of course give access to it. Alternatively, we may store luggage until the room is prepared, so you may enjoy the joys of Ilfracombe.
