Beautiful hotel.
We arrived having camped for a few nights and found this hotel to have been decorated to the highest standard. The decor had some lovely original features and had been tastefully renovated to a modern standard. The way we were treated was excellent, the room was spacious and comfortable. It was cleaned / tidied daily. The breakfast was very nice too, just what we needed from a break away. If I visit ilfracoombe again I will be staying here.

Wonderful Stay
Truly grand, fantastic guesthouse. Heaps of character in the building, with beautiful views overlooking the town and sea. Plenty of parking with large spaces. Owners were both warm and friendly. Recommended without reservation.

Satisfaction guaranteed
This is a high end guest house. The decor and furnishings are top quality and immaculate. The house sits high on the valley side with excellent views across to the sea. The room was large and comfortable, light and airy with a walk in wardrobe to die for. The en suite had a walk in rain shower and bath robes were supplied. The public rooms were comfortably furnished with a selection of games available. Barry and Ann Marie were freindly and attentive with nothing too much trouble. The perfect hosts.

An exeptionally high quality Guest House
Everything about Wildercombe House excels. The house itself is beautiful and the accommodation spacious. Service is first class as is the food. Clean towels and bath robes every day just smacks of the luxury that our hosts offer.
The only aspect which is ordinary is the price!
