Daughters Wedding.Return visit for two nights. We were well looked after as usual. Had a big room helpful to accommodate my daughters wedding dress and veil. Looked forward to the breakfasts. Always good . Enjoyed the yoghurt with compote this time.

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst I visited Ilfracombe and Lundy and my stay was really fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble - I was late arriving and Julienne waited for us and gave us a lovely welcome. I was unable to make breakfast...More

I would thoroughly recommend the Dorchester Guest House. The owners are very helpful and attentive and the establishment is spotlessly clean. It is ideally situated as it is only a short walk from the centre of Ilfracombe.

This was a great place to stay in ilfracombe. The staff were friendly and the room was nice and clean. The breakfast was outstanding. The location was convenient. Close the the town but far away to be nice and quiet of a night time
