I could not wish for a better location. The hotel is perfectly situated overlooking Saunton beach and the view from the hotel restaurants and lounge area are simply magnificent. The hotel itself provides a warm and friendly atmosphere and a perfect haven away from the stresses of every day life.
Lovely Hotel, in brilliant location. Close to Town Centre and all amenities, and a brilliant base for exploring all of North Devons treasures.
Big Car Park with plenty of lighting.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much hassle.
Room was very classic in style with a very modern bathroom, with a lovely bath and shower. All beds were comfy with brilliant white sheets and duvet sets.
The only down sides were mould marks on the ceiling in the bathroom, the room really wasn't big enough for the 2 'Z' Beds we needed for our children, (although they fitted in the room, there was little room for moving around) and they only provided 2 cups when there was 4 people staying.
But overall a very nice hotel. And definitely worth a visit.
This is an outstanding hotel. It stands in a commanding position on the edge of Ilfracombe, with good views over the town to the sea. Our room was very well appointed, large and comfortable. Much detail had clearly been carefully thought out during the complete and extensive refurbishment of the hotel in 2011-12. The owners, Anne-Marie and Barry were extremely helpful at all times, and very hospitable. We felt that our stay represented very good value for money.
We stayed three nights and really didn't want to go home! The Room was out of this world! The Hotel was wonderfully comfortable and everything was of a high standard. The Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Stephen Ashford who made our stay fun and welcoming! The Breakfast was very nice and extremely tasty and the food in the Bistro was delicious along with the Afternoon Tea. We had an amazing and relaxing time and will definitely return. I just wish that all Hotels were as good as this! Loved it!
We booked for one night only and were one of just two couples staying so the bar area and restaurant was very quiet indeed. Shouldn't grumble really but a little more life in these areas would have meant that we would not have returned to our room quite so early.

First day of our honeymoon and although Ilfracombe was pretty quiet as expected (being a Monday), we had a fantastic time. Westwood is a beautiful grand old house and the service and breakfast were excellent.

Kentisbury Grange is a lovely manor building and we received a warm welcome from Hayley and Paula. The restaurant staff in particular were excellent and the food was really tasty. The bathroom was another strong feature. On the development front, some of the staff lacked confidence and the room was a little cluttered with an unnecessary chaise long that just took up space.
The east of this varied coastline features the deep 'combes' (wooded valleys) of Exmoor, which plunge down to the sea, most dramatically at Lynton and Lynmouth. Westward are traditional English seaside towns with long sandy beaches (Ilfracombe, Woolacombe). Beyond the characterful towns of Barnstaple and Bideford, Clovelly is a picture-book, whitewashed fishing village, while Hartland Point is known for its dramatic, storm-battered cliffs.
