We had a lovely short break in Ilfracombe. The Dorchester guest House was wonderful, couldn't really fault it, rooms were extremely clean and the breakfast was cooked perfectly with a good choice and set you up for the day. Would definitely recommend.

This guest house thinks of all your needs & provides some nice touches like wine,beer nuts & crisps in your room to purchase. A good breakfast choice, well cooked. There is also a bus stop right outside property which takes you to sea front.

Fabulous room, value for money, lovely helpful and caring staff. Genuinely lovely accommodation. Close to Ilfracombe itself, easy to get to location. Quiet considering located off main road. Will be revisiting again.
