I found this B&B as a recommendation in the Lonely Planet travel guide and I can fully confirm this after staying there. The location - close to the seafront, harbour and shops - as well as the appearance of the B&B itself are brilliant. My room was spacious, clean and well equipped. Besides I loved the shower which was new...

A good position in the town, close to a variety of pubs and restaurants, but a quiet street. Only a short walk to car parks and the Lundy ferry. We had a large airy room at the top of the house with excellent views. And al delicious breakfast.

Lovely guest House, right in the heart of old Ilfracombe, near the harbour, bars and restaurants. We stayed in a top floor room with vaulted ceiling, free standing bath and a glimpse of the sea! Lovely breakfast and very accommodating hosts, and they are sailors! We chose to eat at Damien Hurst's, but the menu in the ground floor Olive...

The room was huge... a lovely comfy super king bed... great views from the large bay window. Bathrobes & slippers. The bathroom even had a jacuzzi bath... not that we partook,...

We called in for breakfast this morning. All 4 of us were really impressed and would not hesitate to repeat the experience. The hosts were very friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for a nice, relaxing, grown-up place to start the day, you would be hard pushed to find anywhere better than this.

Just spent two nights at the Olive Branch and by far the best small hotel I've stayed in over the last 5 years. Everything was perfect from the warm welcome to the breakfast and let's not forget the room, just beautiful. The hotel is located within a 2 minute walk of the beach and all the nice restaurants are on...

We have just spent two nights at the Olive Branch, what a fantastic place. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Olive Branch. From the warm welcome, to the lovely clean and modern room & of course the great breakfast, it was certainly a great way to spend a relaxing Bank Holiday.
