Exceptional week staying at the Marine Court from the welcoming at the door by Russ and Karen, through the splendidly clean and furnished room, to the daily scrumptious breakfasts and final goodbye. Would thoroughly recommend the Marine Court anyone visiting the North Devon coast.

Tips:

If you don't want to walk far then The Thatched Inn across the road is good for a meal or The Smugglers on the Quay. The Thatched Inn at Abbotsham is great friendly pub for a meal after a day at Clovelly. Lynton and Lynmouth are a must along with the 2 mile walk to Watersmeet for a cream tea.

Russ and Karen made us very welcome. Very professional . The room was so clean and fresh. Breakfast set you up for the day. We wish them the best of luck for next season.

Tips:

Museum was first class. Time and thyme fish restaurant was superb. The George and Dragon was very welcoming. Food: you got what you paid for. Good beer. The Prince Of Wales the land lord was very offhand and rude. Would not go back there.

The car park has 8 places one for each room and is next door to B and B. A lovely old fashioned pub is directly over the road.The only slight downside is the faily steep hill to the harbor.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfect hosts, very welcoming and hospitable. The room was very well thought out and a very high standard both in decor and cleanliness. The breakfast was perfectly cooked and there was a great choice on the menu. 10/10 ! We put a score of 4 for location only because there is a bit of a hill to get to and from town if you are walking.

Tips:

We enjoyed the craft fair down by the landmark. We had a meal on our last evening at the pub opposite and it was lovely.

Karen & Russ where the perfect hosts. So much attention to detail and the little touches made the difference. The place was spotless. Prime location plus parking facilities. First class breakfast using local resources. Added bonus was the local little pub across the road. Like home from home.

Tips:

There a local pub across the road that does top food/beer. Only 15 minutes walk from the harbour with a beautiful view. And 10 minutes walk to town. Prime location which is quiet and with a view.

A tasty breakfast was provided with loads of choice and lovely added touches such as the preserves made by Russ.Fresh fruit for me was an added bonus.

Tips:

The museum is a must to visit specialising in local people and past events in Ilfracombe.The tunnels and beaches were interesting and a hot spot for sunbathing.Various places to eat from traditional fish and chips to gorgeous seafood.Seafront tea rooms offering lovely Devon cream teas. Chambercombe Manor worth a visit also.

Wonderful stay with friendly hosts. Attention to detail amazing, from homemade jams and marmalades, thick fluffy brilliant white towels and bedding to hairdryers in the room and ironing boards and iron on the landing should you need them. Will definitely be going again. Many thanks Barbara and Martin, Manchester

Tips:

Do a boat trip and you will learn lots about Ilfracombe and the coast and sea life. Walk the coast and see the charm of a seaside town that's hardly changed over many years. If you can't walk it drive it, beautiful!!!!

We found our hosts Russ and Karen extremely welcoming and a mine of helpful information to help us make the best of our time in and around Ilfracombe. The hotel is kept extremely clean and each room appears to be tastefully decorated and very well equipped. Ours had a wonderful sea view and such a lot of thought had been put into everything you could need. The breakfast was a wonderful treat every morning with a great menu and superb friendly service. Couldn’t have wished for anything more from our visit. Exceptional!

Tips:

Ask Russ and Karen for ideas as we did and you will be able to make the very best of your visit to Ilfracombe. We had two very good meals at Smugglers restaurant on The Quay and there were some lovely tea rooms to treat yourself to a mid afternoon treat. There’s such a lot of great places to visit in Ilfracombe and the surrounding area, beautiful scenery and lovely clean beaches and having such a great base with friendly and helpful people is such a bonus.

Wonderful hosts who were most welcoming. Karen and Russ provided a tip top service and quite obviously enjoy what they do. The room was beautifully appointed, with super king size bed, fluffy dressing gowns, mini bar and snacks, hot drink facilities and filtered water. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice, including Russ's home made preserves. Karen's tips of places to visit enhanced our stay.

Tips:

The Thatched Inn across from Marine Court is worth a visit. Take a stroll down to Giovanni's for some great Italian food. Take advantage of fine weather and views, and sit on the roof terrace at Wetherspoons. Ilfracombe museum is worth and hour or two of your time with it's mix of local and quirky history. There are some fabulous beaches to visit, Tunnels beaches included.

One of the best! Such attention to detail and immaculately clean throughout. Sea view, comfortable bed, great shower and excellent breakfast. Yes, there are a few stairs to climb but your case can be carried for you, and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Private car park is a bonus. Marine Court is up on the hill above Ilfracombe with a lovely walk down into town with views of the harbour and lifeboat station. I can highly recommend this well run guest house. Many thanks Karen, Russ and staff.

Tips:

Not to be missed: Tunnels Beaches, established during the 1800s by drilling over 160 metres of tunnels through the cliffs and making three large sea water bathing pools washed daily by the tides. Go there to swim - or just to be amazed by Victorian ingenuity! If you’re staying a while book to get the boat over to Lundy Island for the day. Quite a lot of uphill walking involved when you get there, but worth it. Explore the ancient harbour area and form your own opinion about the sculpture of Verity by Damien Hurst. The town has many restaurants to suit all tastes. I can recommend Giovanni & Luca in Wilder Road which is authentically Italian. (You can always get a taxi back up the hill for around £3.) Small museum gives interesting history and overview of both Ilfracombe and Lundy.

Karen and Russ are excellent and organised hosts. The rooms and bed linen are spotless so if you drink a hot chocolate in bed at night be very careful. The breakfast is very good with plenty of fruit AND the hot bacon and eggs etc may come with black pudding AND fried bread. The eggs ... just amazing.

Tips:

The walk down to the harbour is easy (slightly hilly for a short stretch on the way back. From the harbour you can find a less hilly route into town. Near the harbour there is the George and Dragon, we did not eat there since on the way for fish and chips but thought we should have done. Check when quiz night is on Tuesday if eating (gets busy).

The Breakfast area was very inviting and the breakfast was delicious, with plenty of choice and beautifully presented. Karen was very helpful and reserved a table for us at the Thatched Inn. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Outstanding attention to detail, would be the featuring phrase. Great big comfy bed. Fabulous hosts, extremely helpful, the kind that you want to find, but will struggle to, when you travel to any country in the world. Breakfasts are excellent, those sausages are delicious.

Tips:

Booking is advised for "The Quay" in advance, we had a walk in once on Fri night, but turned away on the Sat night, food is top class, atmosphere and service are excellent.

Don’t be fooled by this apparently unassuming property. The proprietors, Karen and Russ, welcomed us with a warm and genuine greeting which set the tenor for our stay. Russ is a former chef and provides a wonderful cooked breakfast whilst Karen deals with the day to day running of the property. Both of them were happy to chat and provide advice on where to eat and what to see In Ilfracombe. The property is located within comfortable walking distance of the quay and the local shops, this coupled with a room with a view of the sea, meant that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. An added bonus was a place to park the car next door to the property.

Tips:

We had a wonderful meal at “Thomas Carr at the Olive Room”, which whilst not cheap was worth every pound. A walk along the quay and a visit to nearby Woolacoombe are recommended.

An amazing establishment. Ris and Karen are lovely people, so welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was lovely, such a huge selection along with proper fresh fruit salad (not from a tin). They have a small bar in their dining room which is open until 10pm and their own private parking. The room was lovely and had everything in it you would want. If anything I would say that they don't charge enough. Excellent stay!!!

We loved the polite and casual conversations we had with the proprietors Karen & Russ, made us feel very welcome. Although we booked the "small" room, number 1, it had all the comforts we needed. In fact we have stayed in much smaller rooms so this one was more than adequate. Very comfortable bed and bedding ensured a good nights sleep. We enjoyed excellent breakfasts in the light and airy breakfast room. It was good to be offered multiple choice of items, good to see Russ's homemade jams and preserves as options, a nice personal touch. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Ilfracombe, they will not be disappointed. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

We would definitely stay here again and would recommend a stay with Russ and Karen at Marine Court to anyone. Fantastic!

Tips:

The Thatched Inn across the road serves lovely food and is well worth a visit. A walk down to the harbour is a must whilst staying here and Tunnels Beaches is a lovely place to visit.

Fabulous stay at The Marine Court, Room was perfect, in fact everything was perfect. Lovely sea view room, which had everything you could wish for..Breakfast was amazing. Karen is very knowledgeable re local area & gave us plenty of useful information.. Car park is a bonus as a lot of Guest Houses we saw didn't seem to have parking facility. Location is ideal..just a few minutes walk to harbour & the centre..

Tips:

The Wetherspoons pub is one of best we have been in.. The Italian Restaurant which is near Wetherspoons was amazing, and quite reasonable..we went twice. There is a number 21 bus that seems to go to many resorts along coast.. we didnt use it but I wanted too & we will next time we go. Croyde is lovely & worth a visit Lots of boat trips available from Harbour Oh and the Cornish Pasties from the Pastie takeaway, along side of harbour are amazing.My Phil loved them..try one.. The Thatched Inn across the way from Marine Court is lovely. Landlord made us very welcome. Beer garden is a lovely sun trap.

We stayed in the small double. The room was lovely, comfortable and really clean. The breakfast was amazing, I've never had one like it. They always addressed us by name which was a nice personal touch! Only a 10 min walk to the harbour and a nice pub across the road. I'd highly recommend it!

Lovely guest house, hosts are very welcoming and friendly, with a lot of local knowledge. The room was very comfortable. We had an executive suite, so there was a separate sitting room with a large flat screen TV, mini bar and coffee machine. My only reason for not awarding 5/5 regarding location was simply that the hotel is up a fairly steep hill, and our sixty-something legs struggled a bit towards the top. Younger legs would be fine!

Tips:

We spent two nights here, first night we ate at the lively Terrace tapas restaurant, and the second at Giovanni & Luca's Italian retaurant. Both meals were very enjoyable and I would recommend these restaurants. It is advisable to book as they were busy when we were there. We visited Barnstaple while there and liked the shops there.

Tips:

Lynton & Lynmouth are a must when in this area. Park at Lynton, visit the shops and don't miss the little book shop in the old Town Hall, then walk down the winding valley walk to Lynmouth then catch the cliff lift back to the top. Try eating at the Sawmills near Watermouth Bay but book early as it gets busy.

The guest house is clean, fresh and spotless throughout. Could not fault it. The breakfasts are absolutely delightful. Could not be better. Marine court Is in easy reach of the quay and shops (10 minutes on foot) and opposite the Thatched inn public house. There is off road parking which most do not have and WIFI Simply truly professional,so we will definitely stay there again.

Tips:

There is plenty to see and do and Marine court guest house is ideally situated (10 minutes walk) for you to explore the quayside, the Tunnel beaches, Capstone hill, The Landmark theatre and good eating venue (Thatched inn) across the road. You are made very welcome.

Plenty of lovely walks in and around Ilfracombe, also a nice little pub just a cross the road from Marine court if you don't feel like walking too far for a meal or a drink.

Excellent guest house with high standards of cleanliness and guest care. Breakfast was well cooked against a wide selection of items from the menu. The location scored a 4 only because the house wasn't on the harbour!! That's a minor quibble!! Should have a 5 really because it's only a couple of minutes walk (downhill) to the harbour and restaurants. Excellent place which could be even better if they did evening meals.

Lovely hosts, amazingly clean, well thought out room, with everything we required, well situated, fantastic breakfast and as we have 9 Grand Children it was lovely not to hear sceaming children over breakfast..as we normally do at home as some live with us.

Tips:

We have been visiting Ilfracombe and Combe Martin for over 30 years. We have family and friends who moved here many years ago and we have never had a bad day with nothing to do. Our hosts, Karen and Russ were more than happy to provide information on things to keep you busy and to enjoy, whatever your needs may be.

An excellent place to stay. Karen and Russ were fabulous hosts of a very well maintained and managed B&B. Comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast. It ticks all of the boxes for a fabulous place to stay. We were there for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is really very good to have easily accessible free parking next door. We highly recommend this place.

Tips:

The harbour is only a short walk down the hill from Marine Court. We had a sea view room at the back which meant that we had less road noise. The roasts on Sunday night over the road at the Thatched Inn are excellent value and delicious. A couple of pints of ale at the bar was also good and a way to chat to some of the locals. The Cream Teas at the Hele Corn Mill down the road a bit are very good.

We had a very warm welcome on a very wet day. Marine Court is so much better than many 5 star hotels we have stayed in. It is beautifully decorated,spotlessly clean and every little detail to make a guest comfortable has been thought of, and provided for. We had a wonderful nights sleep. The breakfast was wonderful with tasty fresh ingredients perfectly cooked and presented. I cannot recommend Marine Court highly enough,we are very glad we decided to stay and will return. Thank you.

Tips:

We only stayed in Ilfracombe one night and even though the weather was inclement we walked down to the town to see the harbour and the amazing statue. It's a must to see up close. Karen kindly booked us a table for dinner at the thatched pub across the road. It was a Sunday so we had the roast. It was fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced. Locals were friendly too.

Marine Court is a clever compromise between a classic B&B and a small hotel. A very friendly welcome led to a spotlessly clean room with all the small extra touches that made our stay so pleasant. The room was not large but was well equipped and refreshed each morning. There was a very wide range of breakfast choices including fresh fruit and cooking to order.

Tips:

We enjoyed the Quay restaurant on the harbour. The day trip to Lundy was the main attraction for our visit.

Spotlessly clean and maintained and managed to a very high standard. Karen and Russ go out of their way to make you feel at home and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is the highlight of the day which is one of the best we have had. Cannot speak highly enough of the Hotel. If we go return to Ilfracombe we will definitely go go back.

Tips:

The Italian Giovanni's & Luca's was really nice, also 'La Gendarmerie' was also very good. Due to the time of season, mid June, a lot of restaurants were closed early week? and there were a lot of people trying to find somewhere to eat and one night we failed to get in anywhere and ended up going to Wetherspoons 'The Admiral Collingwood', which overall was reasonable although busy.

I am a firm believer in providing honest feedback on whatever I am reviewing, highlighting both the good and not so good. The problem I have is that this is the first time where the review will appear one sided. In short there is not a single thing that I can think of that could have been done better. This place sets a standard which I doubt anyone else in the business could hope to match. Great location, clean and comfortable property/rooms, super breakfasts and Russ and Karen are just a lovely couple who make the stay even more special. In summary Perfect - perfect - perfect.

We ate at The Thatch Inn directly opposite and Hele Billy`s, which is a ten minute walk away. Both served extremely good reasonably priced food. We visited the local museum, tunnels and beaches. Enjoyed a nice stroll around the local Harbour with its array of shops.

I loved the attention to detail, White gloves used to serve breakfast, home made preserves, excellent breakfasts plus simple things like ear plugs, cotton buds and cotton wool balls and tissues! Superb shower, excellent bed (A real issue for me with an ongoing bad back) In fact Karen, when you next make up the bed in room 5 - could you let me know the make and details of the mattress please - I want my own!

Tips:

Our most memorable meal was probably Damien Hurst' 11 the Quay - fresh seafood and a view to die for. Karen and Russ where 'on the money' with every food place - which as fellow foodies is important to us. Meeting up with family - including grandchildren we all enjoyed the Castle - the children were enchanted with the whole park. I cant wait for them all to go camping again so we can book Marine Court!

We ate in at Maddy's fish and chip shop which was good value but Karen will tell you the good places to eat.

Tips:

La Gendamerie on Fore Street is an excellent fine dining restaurant. Small limited menu with excellent service, the food here is superb. Lynbay fish & chip shop right by the harbour is excellent. The Quay restaurant & bar which is right by the harbour is a great place to have a coffee, few drinks & even though we didn't eat there all the food we saw looked great.

The Pier Head pub/restaurant has live music with it's own 'brew' and is close to the Chapel/Lighthouse on the hill which is worth a visit, with excellent views of the town.

The location was perfect for the Harbour and Town. Karen and Russ were so helpful and lovely people. It s the little details that make the difference and they thought about everything. The place was spotlessly clean and we would certainly stay with them again.

Exceptional accommodation. Spotless throughout. The whole team are friendly, approachable and warm. Breakfast Is excellent with high quality produce and the 'build your own' gives you great choice setting you up for the day. Karen and Russ are very knowledgeable about ilfracombe and the surrounding area and gave us some great suggestions on how to get the most out of our short stay. We would highly recommend and will be back.

Tips:

Olde Thatched Inn opposite is a friendly local offering good food. Short walk to the harbour with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. Good walks nearby. Good base to see North Devon coast. Lynmouth and Lynton are definitely worth a visit.

We found Karen and Russ extremely friendly and helpful hosts. We appreciated the recommendation for a dinner reservation and the booking of this on our behalf. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety. The only suggestion we might make is for some indication either at Marine Court itself or on-line as to where the parking is situated. The parking itself is great but not obvious from the main road.

Tips:

Highly recommend 'Relish' for dinner and a visit down to the waterfront to view 'Verity' is a must.

The room was nicely furnished, cosy and spotlessly clean and Karen and Russ were lovely, really helpful and friendly. They told us the best places to visit and to eat so that we were able to make the most of our short stay. The breakfasts were amazing, so much choice and if it wasn't listed, they would make it for you. The location is perfect as we were able to walk into the harbour within ten minutes. The free wifi kept my daughter happy !

Tips:

Tunnels beaches were amazing as was the beach at nearby Woolacombe where you can watch the surfers. We had lovely meals at The Thatch right opposite the hotel and also at the Italian restuarant in town. The museum is fabulously quirky with lots of hidden treasures in boxes and cupboards and is a great way to pass a couple of hours if the weather is bad.

Lovely warm welcome and friendly throughout our stay. Great personal touches e.g. Chocolate egg on Easter sunday. Great breakfasts, good ingredients perfectly cooked - especially the boiled eggs and soldiers! Sea view room was very comfortable. Also lovely that you remember everyone's names :)

Tips:

Day trip to Lundy recommended. Coastal walks are fantastic. Woolacombe beach nearby is worth a surf, run or stroll. The restaurants recommended by Karen and Russ are worth a visit e.g. Take thyme and the tapas were good.
