“Lovely B&B with great sea views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our trip despite the very wet weather. Breakfast was freshly cooked with a good range of options, the en-suite room was spacious with a lovely view to the harbour. The only downside is the uphill walk back from town but it was only 10 minutes or so and not too challenging with a comfy bed to come back to!

This is a very good b&b. The Tricia and her husband made us very very welcome and lent us a book to help with routes for local walks. The room was nice, clean and modern with a great view of the sea, there are little extras that are thrown in that make your stay there really pleasing. The breakfast was excellent, with fresh orange juice and a great selection of fruit.

We stayed two nights here. Our room had a lovely sea view, the room was very clean and nice looking. The bathroom was also very clean and had a nice shower. The female owner was very polite and friendly. Breakfast was very good and consisted of fresh fruit, cereal, toast and a choice of two cooked breakfasts. The hotel had wifi, but it only worked downstairs, not in our room. Definitely recommend this B&B.

We stayed for 2 nights at The Towers this June and were very, very pleased.

We stayed in the very top room, "The Tower", room was clean, spacious and had an awesome view over Ilfracombe. The bathroom was huge, and very well finished.

Breakfast was fantastic, with several options to choose from a list, everyone's tastes and dietary preferances are catered for. We had the full English, this was cooked to perfection and all food was of an excellent quality.

Wifi is available throughout, but reception was a little weak in our bedroom.

Located about a 10 minute walk to the centre. We got a taxi back late in the evening, which cost £2.50.

We would certainly stay here again and recommend The Towers to everyone.
