We travelled to Ilfracombe for a wedding.

The Dorchester was an excellent guest house. An extremely friendly establishment with lovely rooms and facilities in the rooms. The breakfast was one not too be missed with a full English breakfast along with home made preserves. We were made very welcome and even my guide dog was left a bowl of treats for after her dinner. I would highly recommend.

delicious breakfast

Stayed at the Dorcester with my 13 year old daughter for 2 nights.

Room was very clean, although rather small. There was tea making facility with milk in the fridge, as well as complimentary biscuits every day. TV was big and the beds were comfy. We had a good nights sleep, and did not hear any outside noises - which was great. The quality of the breakfast was fantastic and highly recommended - I especially loved the sausages which were meaty and tasty, and so was the bacon. The scrambled eggs were also deliciously prepared. Even the cereal was top quality. The owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
