The Harcourt Hotel is ideally located beside the sea front in the heart of Ilfracombe, with restaurants, bars, cafes, and the main shopping street all close by. We loved our view of the sea and the promenade. Our booking was handled efficiently and we were given excellent directions which helped us find the hotel with no issues. On arrival we...

What a find! We booked last minute and arrived in the evening to such a lovely welcome, after the B&B kindly booked a taxi from the station as well. Rooms are light, bright and really well equipped especially for business travellers. Free fast wifi is a massive bonus, the full English is excellent and the views over the bay are...

We were greeted with a very warm welcome and made to feel as if we'd known them for years. The whole building was tidy and clean and the house dogs are very friendly. The breakfast was marvellous and more than filled a gap. Great start to your day. We'd definitely come back here if we visit Ilfracombe again.

And what a superb breakfast indeed. The Hotel is lovely and clean - the staff are friendly and Jack is an absolute diamond...

Great place to stay, good breakfast, the hosts are wonderful. We had a fantastic stay, loved the "honesty bar" works as it should. If you're going to Ilfracombe I couldn't recommend it higher. Don't judge it from the outside, wait until you're in and had the full welcome, parking is tricky, but there is enough room.
