Comfortable nights stay at the Dorchester. A very friendly welcome and a great breakfast in the morning. I would recommend this guest house highly.

Lovely guest house with a homely feeling

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. Stayed in room 1 (photos of rooms on their website which makes choosing easier) Large room at the back of the property so no noise from the road, with king sized bed, sofa, mini bar in small fridge, DVD player and selection of DVD's and free WiFi. The bus stop is right outside the property providing a link to Barnstaple bus / rail station or to the town centre which otherwise is aboout a 15 minute walk. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

Me and my wife stayed here for one night last week. We were surprised by the hospitality given from the second we walked through the door. The hotel itself was very nice, very clean and quiet, Well laid out and a very homely feel about it. The room was a good size and had more than we were offered in much bigger chain hotels, the bed was very comfy, which is a bit of a big deal for me. The breakfast the next morning was excellent and we had plenty of choice, the hospitality continued in the morning which was very nice. Overall a very good experience, if i stay in Ilfracombe again i will stay here again, it has everything you could want from a hotel and for a excellent price. Thank you.

Top quality BandB in Ilfracombe

Posted May 22, 2014
Pros: Lovely breakfast. Very friendly, helpful owner. Books and DVDs available to borrow. Very good information about things to do, restaurants etc.
Location: Good parking, which is at a premium in Ilfracombe. Short walk onto Main Street and sea front
Charming town and sea front, and superb supper at The Angel restaurant as recommended. Light, quiet and very pleasant and comfortable room, and lovely general accomodation, sitting room and breakfast room. Exmoor and surrounding countryside and sea front; we had a wonderful drive through Porlock and Lynton and Lynmouth to town.

Great weekend

My wife and I have just returned from a short break in Ilfracombe. We wanted a small B&B with free wi-fi and where we could take our border collie, and we found it all at ' The Dorchester' and more. The owners were spot on all the time, even down to supplying a towel to wipe the dog down after we got caught in a shower. The breakfast is top notch and plentiful. There is a bus stop right outside for going into Ilfracombe - if you don't want the 10 minute walk, and the return stop is only 50 yards away. We will definitely stay again when we return to North Devon
