Really great little B n B in Ilfracombe, North Devon. A lovely surprise in Ilfracombe, this beautifully decorated small hotel gave us a brilliant stop-over on a weekend trip to North Devon. Our room was really comfortable and beautifully decorated with a lovely ensuite, with the cleanest shower enclosure I've ever encountered. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and was...

We stayed 2 nights at the Marine Court Guest House with a day trip to Lundy Island sandwiched in between. The guest house is one of the best we have ever stayed in in the UK. Karen and Russ have obviously invested heavily and tastefully to make a first class establishment with many personal touches. The guest house is spotless,...

I stayed at Marine Court with my husband for the Easter weekend. Greeted by Karen and Russ who were welcoming and informative. Our room which overlooked the sea was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice which was freshly cooked to order and perfect all 3 mornings. We even had the choice of chicken or duck...

We don't normally book guest houses, as we prefer the anonymity of hotels. We booked Marine Court based on previous reviews and were we glad we did! Fantastic hosts with incredible attention to detail. Spotlessly clean. Bright and welcoming breakfast room. Perfectly cooked breakfast with the highest quality locally sourced produce. And the added bonus of a private car park....

A great location to the town about 10 minutes leisurely stroll to the harbour. Karen and Russ gave us a personal greeting on arrival and showed us round very...

We have just returned from a three night break at this exquisite little hotel. We had an executive room with a side sea view from the sitting room. One cannot fault the place. It has been decorated to a five star plus standard. There is not a scuff to be seen anywhere. The interior design and soft furnishing are of...

We stayed for two nights, double room with sea view. Excellent. It is difficult to review thie hotel in any other way. It is spotlessly clean, well maintained and comfortable. The "booking in" process was very clear, and by that means Karen and Russ not only make you feel at home, but arrive at the name by which you wish...

We have just returned from a two night stay in this Guest House. We opted for an executive suite, and this was a good choice. There was a pretty bedroom with a huge (and extremely comfortable) bed, then a separate sitting room with a mini bar, coffee maker and big flat-screen tv on the wall. There was also a smaller...

My sister and I stayed in suite 8 for 2 nights. This wonderful elegant B & B has it all and is spotlessly clean. Lovely warm hospitality from Karen and Russ. The towels were fluffy, the bed extremely comfortable, lovely complementary toiletries as well as a inroom bar plus tea and coffee making facilities. Wonderful powerful shower and stunning views...
