We had two nights here. The welcome when we arrived so warm and sincere. The room was spotless and really comfortable. Breakfast was first class and set you up for the day . Russ and Kaen are excellent hosts. We would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Would choose a sea view next visit

We returned to Ilfracombe last week for the first time since selling our flat in the town earlier this year. We love Ilfracombe and chose to stay three nights at Marine Court - it was the right decision!

From the start everything was totally in order. There's a car park - not always the case in Ilfracombe. Then the warm greeting from Karen and Russ. And the spotless premises and room. We had the Executive Suite (oblique sea view) with a double room (with tv), separate living area (with tv) and shower room.

Breakfast is yours to decide...I would just say that the Breakfast Gold Awards have been well-earned.

It is on the main road and opposite the Thatched Inn but we had no noise problems at all (even though we were provided with "just in case" ear plugs in the bedside drawer!)

Absolutely nothing else to comment on other than our 100% satisfaction.

Room Tip: We had the Exec Suite - south-facing from the bedroom and west-facing from living area and shower room. Highly recommended

Husband and I stayed here for one night during a long weekend trip exploring South and North Devon. The marine court was hands down the best place we have stayed in the area to date. Spotlessly Clean and the room was spacious, immaculate and nicely decorated. We had a lovely friendly welcome from Russ and Karen and they are lovely hosts. We really appreciated the little touches in the room, there was a cold bottle of filtered water to drink and being tall people we loved that the towels were big and fluffy unlike some places where they give you a towel like a postage stamp! It was also a big plus point for us that there was a dressing table and vanity mirror to sit at with a plug socket right next to it. In other places we've had to get creative to dry hair in front of a mirror and this was more like being at home. Breakfast was faultless, we really liked the build your own option with a long list of options so you can choose exactly what you want and how much of it. There was also a selection of juices, preserves and cereals. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and are already making plans to come back.

We have stayed in 12 guest houses/b and b's in the past four years and we have to say for us this is by far the best. Karen and Russ are extremely welcoming and the room was spotless. With easy car parking and a first class breakfast you couldn't ask for more.
When we return to Ilfracombe we would not hesitate in booking this great find again.

Room Tip: Although not on the waterfront the sea view was as good as expected

My wife and I stayed at the Marine Court on the 5th of September 2018. We were greeted by Russ and Karen and immediately knew we had made a good choice! The couple are very friendly, genuine, simply lovely people. The sea view room we stayed in was perfect, spotlessly clean and tidy with all the amenities you could ask for.
Quite simply a perfect comfortable stay at a very reasonable price. We look forward to staying here again in the near future.

Cameron and Christine.

Room Tip: Best rooms are seaview and suite.
