    A bit dated and in need of a revamp but, for the money, it was ok. Rooms were clean; bed-linen and towels clean and fresh. Friendly staff. All in all a decent base for a break in Woolacombe and only 5 minute walk to front.

    There is a lift to floors and staff can help with luggage. There are limited rooms on the ground floor so it's worth asking. My wife and I use a room with walk-in shower.
