Dear Philip, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. I am sorry that you found your room cold, each radiator has it's own control as we find that everyone is different when it comes to preferred room temperatures. We always try to ensure that the heating comes on when most people are in their rooms, mornings and late afternoons/evenings. Our TV's are small, we find that most people dont come away to watch TV, but your comments are noted. Lorinda & Paul

Lovely hotel. Spotlessly clean. Great hosts, happy to chat without being intrusuve. In excellent position close to town centre and facilities. Did not use car all week.

Tips:

Lots to see and do in Ilfracombe. Had a great meal in a local tapas bar. Also had a very tasty good value fish and chip meal in a cafe/restaurant by the harbour. Fantastic walks can be taken along the coastal paths. Don't forget to go and see the statue by Damien Hurst at the harbour mouth.

Very nice and friendly couple who have only been running the hotel for a short time so are still in the process of putting their mark on it. The hotel is of the Georgian era with very large and comfortable rooms with ensuite and complimentary soaps and tea making facility. The dining room has all new furniture and is very inviting with a small bar.Good selection of breakfast cereals and drinks and also a superb cooked breakfast. The hotel is a 10-15 min. walk to town through a private track at the back of the hotel. Thoroughly recommended.

Made us feel very welcome, we had room seven the traffic noise can be abit troublesome because of the nice weather we had to keep the window open, no noise when the window close, nice walk down the garden to the top of the high street. Handy if you have a torch when you walk back at the night time

Tips:

Witherspoon nice for a drink outside area on the second floor, the pubs near the harbour are nice sandpaper has karaoke on Saturday night. The chilled bar at the end off the high street before you go down to the harbour has some great band on seven nights a week
