What a transformation in every aspect....... Take a tour & see the old part in comparison to the new parts!!!!! The restaurant/bar, lobby and rooms are of a sharp design with no nonsense, comfortable, super clean and inclusive of everything one needs on a hotel stay.
The service is very warm and welcoming. Michael has a heart of gold and a very refreshingly honest attitude in his approach to new and return customers. Elliot is a formidable chef with love pouring through his fingers onto the plate..... Their professionalism is even drizzleing down to each employee....nothing is a bother to anyone.
Although the hotel has no views as such of the sea side but what we found within was making up for it in a grand way. The theme of London's West End is displayed in style and makes one feel chic........a trial is simply a MUST!!!!!!
Thank you very much for everything and for having us!

Room Tip: newly renovated rooms are London/New York quality style, borderline 5*****

Thank you Steffa, we are really encouraged that you fully support the hotel design and have enjoyed the service. Eliot will be delighted with the comments on the food. He and his team work really hard to deliver a genuine offer, using only fresh and locally sourced ingredients.
If I could I would teleport the hotel to a cliff top or beach front (and quadruple the price!) but thank you for your hearty endorsement. We hope to welcome you back very soon. - Michael R

I stayed here in July for one night B&B. The room I stayed in was a bit dated but had all you need and was clean and comfortable. The only criticism is that it was extremely hot and sleeping with the window open meant you had to listen to the seagulls squawking all night. The staff did provide a fan but you still needed a window open. The breakfast was excellent. For the price paid it was extremely good value.

Stayed: July 2018

Thank you for the review Paul, I assume you stayed in a 3rd floor room which are scheduled for refurbishment this Winter and should be ready for the 2019 season. We are glad you enjoyed the breakfast and consider the proposition value for money - Michael R

We booked last minute after failing to find a hotel elsewhere. Loved this hotel from the minute I walked in. Such friendly staff, thoughtfully refurbished rooms, good breakfast, and great location. Free parking was limited but we managed to squeeze in an on-road spot behind hotel. Ilfracombe is great too. What a find.

You're guaranteed a friendly greeting from Michael and a brilliant night's sleep (the hotel is off the main road, so it's nice and quiet). Easy to walk into town for dinner and also a great place to set out from on your coastal walks. It's around the corner from the tunnel beaches (don't miss out on those). We had one of the recently refurbished rooms - hats off to the team - it was beautiful with everything we needed.
Clean, fresh and just what the doctor ordered after a long drive. Thanks guys! If ever in that neck of the woods again, I'll be back to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the refurbished rooms (the third floor hasn't been done yet). Also avoid the room next to the lift.
