The minute we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome. The property was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The rooms we booked (2 and 3) were both balcony rooms with sea views. We spent a lot of time just gazing into the harbour and watching the boats. Gorgeous! Breakfast was the best we've had at a B&B, and there...

Great last minute booking - good value for money. Choice of room when we checked-in which was actually an upgrade - lovely view of the harbour and Verity. Lovely lounge area and honesty bar available. Room had everything we needed. Breakfast was fantastic - cooked to order with local ingredients.

We had a 3 night stay over the Easter Break and we weren't disappointed. Like so many of the reviews previously made this place really does do what it says on the tin and more. Nothing is too much trouble and the small details are plentiful. The place is immaculate, the rooms were cleaned every day, towels and all soaps,...

We stayed here following recommendation from a colleague and are so glad we did. The room was clean and beautifully decorated with tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast was amazing with a vegetarian option. There is a lovely snug lounge area and a separate honesty bar. The walk to the harbour isn't very long but it is quite steep....

We chose The Collingdale based both on the high Tripadvisor ratings as well as the location in Ilfracombe. We were pleasantly surprised as it exceeded our expectations in every way. Built into a hillside above the harbor, the front of the building is on street level with free street parking available. But it is the rear of the building that...
