The hotel was superb. The hosts were attentive, generous and very welcoming. I couldn’t have asked for me. The home made cookies were also delicious.

Merci mille fois à Bonnie, Betty et Pickle car ce sont des hôtes merveilleux. Tout n'est que délicatesse et rafinement, douceur. L'hotel est superbement décoré, calme, confortable. La chambre très spacieuse et impeccable, il ne manque rien même dans les petits détails et le petit déjeuner délicieux servi avec élégance. Un havre de paix que l'on quitte à regret dans le site merveilleux d'Ilfracombe.

Beautiful place, beautifully decorated. The Buttons have made Westwell Hall into a great, relaxing escape. The friendliness, cleanliness and service are first class- even from Pickle the dog! My only complaint is that we weren't there long enough!

Tips:

Verity Statue in the harbour is very impressive. 2 nights and 2 very good meals, Relish in Fore Street (fresh fish available), and Giovanni & Luca Italian on the seafront. You would probably need to book in advance for both.

We loved Westwell Hall, it's beautiful with lots of character and spotlessly clean. The decor is amazing with lots of hidden little extra's wherever you look. Our room was perfect with a stunning view across the town and sea and we appreciated all the extra attention to detail. Our Hosts Bonnie & Betty couldn't have been better, they were extremely helpful, and had a great sense of humour. There was a great choice for breakfast, including several cooked options which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were there for 2 nights but extended to a 3rd night as we didn't want to leave!

Right from the start, Bonnie went out of her way to make us welcome. From greeting us at the door, to driving us up town so we could go out tea. To both her and Biddie and Biddie's mum helping us out in a very sticky predicament. The house was beautiful, as was the decoration of the house and rooms. It is not very often that you get full sized fluffy bath sheets (towels). The view from our room was beautiful. Everything about the place and service was beautiful. And the scrambled eggs were the best I have ever had! Such great service. We will never forget the ladies generosity! THANK YOU! WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU LADIES HELP AND GENEROSITY AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!

Tips:

Make sure you leave enough time to see the pretty little town. Go check out Verity, very unusual. There are loads of cute little restaurants.

Bonnie and Betty made us very welcome and their hospitality was wonderful.The hotel was decorated in an eclectic manor with a lovely colour scheme which we very much enjoyed.Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and our room was very comfortable.We were able to relax in the orangery or on the terrace overlooking the garden with views across the valley. Overall we had a very relaxing and enjoyable time and hope to return.

Tips:

Ilfracombe has some excellent restaurants as well as traditional eateries. The Landmark Theatre is delightful and have lots shows. Museum and Aquarium are interesting. We had a car so days out were along the coast. lovely beaches, coastal walks, villages etc. RHS Rosemoor and Dartington Crystal are not far. We enjoyed driving across Exmoor. The views and ponies are lovely.

Westwell hall is quietly situated on a hillside. If you want to avoid the car it is a welcome walk back to accommodation after dinner. In the accommodation there is a list with a good selection of restaurants in the area. The various gardens in the area are definitely recommended for sightseeing.

If you like a touch of elegance and luxury and have a flair for design, you will be delighted to have found this absolute gem that is Westwell Hall. You can sense as soon as you turn into the drive that you have found somewhere a little special and once inside, you will find yourself wanting to see more, as every room has its own unique style. The owners Bonnie & Betty have put their heart and soul into making their home a place to which you will be excited to return.

Tips:

We absolutely loved having an evening stroll alongside the harbour, browsing the quaint little shops & art galleries and taking in Damien Hirst’s magnificent statue ‘Verity’ Also the drive along the coast road into Woolacombe has some amazing views views and well worth a visit.

Two lovely helpful ladies that made our stay so pleasant and calm. They even booked for us a table to very nice local restaurants and organized taxi etc. Every morning smile and little chat about new peculiar and funny happenings in this world. Lovely Pickles that came to the breakfast room waging its tail, looking for scratch and maybe in hope of something more? We felt comfortable home immediately. Our 4 nights were so nice with you. Thank you Bonnie & Betty ! Leena, Bibi & Seppo

Stayed at Westwall Hall for the last 3 nights of a week's honeymoon and it was the best hotel of the week. From the moment we walked through the front door we were made to feel very welcome and made to feel at home. Every room in the hotel is very clean, extremely well decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast each day was freshly cooked and of a very high standard. Even the coffee was freshly made and not once during our stay did we have to request a top-up. Would definitely return if visiting Ilfracombe again and would not hesitate in recommending to friends and family.

Without a doubt this was the best small, private hotel we have ever stayed in. The level of service and attention was exceptional, without being intrusive at all. From the moment we arrived until the minute we departed, Bonnie and Betty looked after us and took time to get to know us. The hotel itself is impeccable, both in terms of cleanliness and the facilities available. The lounges are glorious and the outside space is very cleverly done. There are objets d'art in every nook and cranny; everywhere your gaze descends discovers a new little treasure. We were so impressed, we would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to close family and friends. Thank you for making our stay so memorable!

Thank you for giving us such a good score despite the TV problems. We have recently had to retune all the TVs after Freeview shut the signal down for servicing.

I am only happy it didn't impact too heavily on your enjoyment of your stay here. The lesson we have learnt is to check the signals every day while cleaning the rooms, thank you for bringing the matter to our attention. B&B

We spent two nights in this wonderful B&B. Biddi and Bonnie were very welcoming and couldn’t have done more for us. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a great view over Ilfracombe. We had fluffy dressing gowns to wear and luxury toiletries in the en-suite shower room. Tea and coffee making facilities were in the room and we enjoyed the home made cookies too! The bed was so comfy we overslept! Breakfast was delicious with a choice of cooked options. We requested a vegan evening meal and Biddi came up trumps. The food was just delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you Biddi and Bonnie for making our stay in your beautiful home so memorable.

Whilst the menu and wine list are small there’s something for everyone and the quality is superb. We knew, from the moment we arrived, that Westwell Hall was special and we weren’t disappointed.

Tips:

Ideally positioned for walking the South West Coastal Path.

From the entrance gates to the Gothic portico & raised position one is promised an anticipated enjoyment. Upon entering one is quickly immersed in a rather somewhat sublime & exquisite “Feast for the eyes” experience. Music & wonderful fragrances fill the air. Creativity & chicness abound with superlative attention to detail. Comfort, with every corner adding to the surprise & subsequent visual delight, only surpassed by the welcome received from the extremely attentive team of Bonnie & Betty. Keep up the exceptional work. Regards Lord w & family.

Westwell Hall is a pinnacle of excellence. The rooms are so welcoming and so beautifully decorated. My room was decorated so that when I was in bed I felt I was cocooned in a summer garden. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever experienced in a hotel with fabulous linens! My bathroom was huge and there were sumptuous towels and so many great little extras. Breakfast was delicious; Betty makes all her own bread and this along with award winning sausages and bacon in the full english made it for me. The fresh fruit salad was wonderful. I had such a nice time; Bonnie is,a wonderful hostess, she seems to be there right on the spot whenever you need anything. She also makes the best gin and tonic ever! I had such a wonderful stay, Pickle the dog is a delightful doggie who we played ball with! I stay in here is all over the UK with my job and this is the jewel in the crown for me. I will be back again and again.

Tips:

There are some fabulous restaurants in Ilfracombe and we visited several. However the restaurant in the hotel itself serves exquisite food and we stayed in for dinner several times. Outstanding!!

What a find! We loved our stay with Bonnie and Biddi - their hotel is beautifully decorated with lots of imagination. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and the food was excellent. We can certainly recommend Westwell Hall Hotel and hope to stay again sometime.

Tips:

The hotel is on a hill, so may not suit everyone, but it's an easy 10 minute walk down into town and just five minutes walk up onto the coastal path, which is fantastic. Town is a bit quiet in March when we stayed, but no doubt gets busier in the Summer.

Tips:

Ilfracombe to Woolacombe coastal path was tough but great! Sculpture trail and lunch en route at Broomhill was fantastic. There was enough open for us to eat and drink very well, but to others visiting, bear in mind that most of the top-rated on Tripadvisor are still shut for the off season at the moment!

Don't hesitate to book here. Great walk from the Hotel direct onto the SW Coast Path through Lee and onto to Mortehoe / Woolacombe. The No 31 bus back from Mortehoe takes you back to Ilfracombe at the end of the day. All info provided by Betty and Bonny on the morning of our walk.

Stayed here this weekend and honestly don't have any negative feedback for this hotel or the owners. Bonnie & Betty were incredibly attentive throughout our stay and couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is fabulous, very quirky and the attention to detail is second to none. Lots of communal space for guests to enjoy, including a lounge, dining room, garden room and outdoor space. The bedrooms have been carefully thought out and decorated with an individual twist. Large rooms with complimentary Elemis toiletries and branded teas/coffees with homemade biscuits on arrival. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the rooms are spacious. We had sea views which were definitely a bonus. Breakfast was freshly cooked daily with fresh juices and pastries available. The icing on the cake was Pickle, the resident dog, she is brilliant (I wanted to take her home!). All in all a very pleasant stay, hotel is very clean and welcoming. We will be returning!

This booking was a bit of a "Punt" when I booked it, not knowing Ilfracombe at all well. As it turned out, I could not have picked a better place for a few days away. Our hosts have done an amazing job of giving a tired old house a new lease of life. They also set the bar very high in terms of friendly & helpful service. As a business, this deserves success, and I look forward to visiting again in the future, especially if the dining room is open in the evening. Although Ilfracombe boasts some fine restaurants, I'm sure that Westwell Hall will do it better!

Tips:

I can recommend Restaurant Seventy one in Fore st., and The Quay (on the quay surprisingly enough!). Both good places for dinner, and popular so book ahead.

Our stay at Westwell Hall was wonderful and we did not want to leave. The house itself is absolutely beautiful and our room was lovely with dual aspect and sea views. The whole house was spotless and nothing was too much trouble for Bonnie and Betty. They were perfect hosts and made us feel really special. On the first night it was very warm outside and I mentioned to Bonnie at breakfast that I was quite warm in the room and then without even asking Betty and Bonnie went out and bought a fan for our room. And Betty also arranged lactose free butter and yoghurt for breakfast when I mentioned I was lactose intolerant. Drinks and cake on the terrace was a lovely thought on our arrival and the location up in the hills overlooking Ilfracombe made for a quiet and peaceful stay. We would definitely recommend Westwell Hall and will be returning again in the future.

I can’t recommend this hotel highly enough. The building is beautiful and has been tastefully refurbished to be a beautiful blend of Victorian and modern. The owners are working very hard to give everyone a relaxed and personalised stay. I stayed in the single room which was bigger than most single rooms and very well appointed. Lovely touches such as Elemis toiletries and home made biscuits really made a difference. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel very quiet and peaceful. I felt the value for money was excellent and I hope to return soon, assuming they’re not fully booked!

Tips:

Ilfracombe is great. I recommend the Naked Cake Cafe in town and Tunnels Beaches which can be accessed for £2.50 but it’s well worth it for a wonderful swim. The harbour area is also lovely and I recommend a boat trip up the coast.

This place was only chosen because it had parking facilities (not easily come by in Ilfracombe) but what a gem it turned out to be. The awkward approach road and rather forbidding exterior of the building had us fearing the worst. What a delightful surprise awaited us. The friendly owners Bonnie and Betty have created an interior of great beauty and interest and all in exquisite taste. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable with numerous thoughtful extras. The food was of the highest possible standard and the evening meal full of delicious flavours, beautifully presented and at a price we would have readily paid double for.

Tips:

Ilfracombe is an interesting fishing village, with many stunning views, with a little walking effort. We walked from Ilfracombe to Woolacombe which was amazing though a lot of up and down, but well worth the views and wildlife. Damien Hirst's huge statue of Verity overlooking Ilfracombe harbour excites differing responses but is certainly worth seeing.

Lovely old building, attractively renovated and decorated. Attentive hosts, very welcoming. Excellent breakfast. We did not eat at Westwell in the evening, but the menus looked interesting.

A lovely, stylish hotel with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Beautiful rooms throughout with delightful, quirky touches. Fantastic breakfasts. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners who are as delightful as their fantastic hotel. Their little dog is great fun and adds to the homely atmosphere. We will definitely return!

Tips:

A lovely little seaside town with some great restaurants. A town on the up!

A recently renovated Victorian manor that has been impeccably appointed in a modern style. The proprietors, Bonnie and Betty, were friendly and extremely welcoming. We were treated more as House guests than as customers, they even gave us a ride down to our restaurant reservation with a quick tour of the town that highlighted what to see and do. Our large suite had a truly comfortable bed with big fluffy pillows, the modern bath room also had plenty of towels that were very large and extremely thick. Well done, 5 stars all the way!

Tips:

Make reservations for dinner in their dining room when you book your room, Betty is a talented chef that makes all the offerings fresh from scratch everyday. So she needs to know that you intend to dine in in order to accommodate you. Also they have a small dog, Pickle, that lives on premises. The house is fastidiously clean and she is very friendly, but if you are allergic to dogs please be aware.

Bonnie and Bettie and pickle are such wonderful hosts, and when my husband was taken I'll they made me feel so welcome downstairs in the conservatory bar area. Nothing was too much trouble, and Bettie's cooking is amazing. I'm just sorry we never got to try the 3 course menu, it is truly a beautiful home that they share with their guests. We will def be back soon

Tips:

Ilfracombe has many lovely places to eat, and the cliff top walks are breathtaking,it is very hilly, so be prepared for a good workout when you go

Tips:

Giovanni & Luca is a lovely, family run Italian restaurant. Hocking's ice cream is devine. If you are feeling indulgent, get a scoop of cream on top of the ice cream.
